When it comes to going on holiday, you’re going to want to ensure that you have packed everything that you need to have an enjoyable, stress free time. While there are a number of essentials that you will need to ensure that you have such as a passport, any visas and if you’re an EU citizen heading to Europe ensuring you’ve carried out an EHIC Renewal UK, there are a few additional items that the millennial generation in particular are going to want to ensure that they’ve remembered. Here, we’ve put together a bit of a checklist to help you when it comes to packing your essential holiday technology.
One of the biggest essentials that can really ruin a holiday is forgetting to pack your charger. While these can be picked up from the airport for most phone makes, particularly iPhone, if you have a charger that is not as well-known such as an LG make with the newer shaped chargers like the G5, then you may struggle finding a charger to match it – particularly when you land in the new country. Having a phone with you that is charged can be particularly important when you’re travelling, if you need to call someone in an emergency or just to check in with family and friends so that they know you are safe. Whatever you do, make sure to pack your charger!
If you’re looking to document your holiday, or you’re looking to travel for a long period of time and want to record all of the little details you’re worried that you might forget, then make sure that you purchase a GoPro. The GoPro is one of the smallest, lightest and most convenient cameras that you can come across, making it easy to pack for holiday and carry around when you’re exploring. But its size doesn’t mean that its camera quality is any less exceptional. Another major benefit of the GoPro is the fact that it’s waterproof, which is ideal for taking fantastic underwater pictures and videos, to truly complete the documentary experience.
If you’re ready to set off on a long flight, but you know that you are a very light sleeper, you may want to consider investing in noise-cancelling headphones. Whether you use these solely for your flight, or you’re going to be using them throughout your holiday when you want to completely seclude yourself and be oblivious to all of the sounds around you, these items are an absolute must. With these you can truly find yourself relaxing and getting lost in all of your favourite films and music, ideal for your holiday.
Books are old-school, and while many people still prefer to have the physical book in their hand, they can very quickly weigh down a suitcase. Taking an e-reader with you, like a Kindle or other brand, can really help you when it comes to tackling the latest book releases. This is particularly helpful if you’re an avid reader and you want to dive into a number of books throughout your trip, as all of the novels you want to read are all located in one easy to carry place.
