Electrical goods that people commonly pack for their vacations include hair dryers, chargers for phones, tablets and laptops, portable chargers, cameras, video cameras and headphones. In some cases, hotels supply hair dryers. In terms of beauty and hygiene, antibacterial wipes, hair brushes, makeup bags, deodorant, moisturizers, cleansers, lip balm containing an SPF, insect repellent and first aid kids are necessary. However, lip balm with an SPF and insect repellent are more essential in hot destinations than cooler areas. Miscellaneous items and accessories can include bank cards, credit cards, currency cards, passports, travel pillows and blankets, sunglasses, and contact lenses or glasses.

Certain items can make vacations and travel more comfortable. For example, taking a blanket on a plane provides the reassurance that it's clean and comfortable. Some individuals may also wish to take travel hygiene packs, and taking portable chargers ensures mobile devices don't lose charge on the road. Lingerie bags are a great way of keeping used undergarments away from clean clothes. Individuals who want to ensure they pack appropriate clothing should check the weather forecast in advance and consider their plans for their destinations.
