Packing for Your Trip (Part 2)

  1. Packing for the Trip

Make a list of the specific items of clothing you’ll need to pack for your trip to suit the various functions you’ll attend.

Try to pack everything you need in a carry-on bag, to avoid the possibility of lost luggage. 

If you check your bag, pack a second set of  clothes and toiletries in a carry-on bag, in case of lost luggage.

Print several copies of this checklist, and save a copy on your computer’s hard drive to refer to when planning your next trip. Storing the checklist on your computer is the easiest way to make updates to it when necessary.

  1. What to Leave for Family and Caregivers at Home

Leave your contact information—including the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the hotels where you are staying—with a family member, so they can reach you while you’re away.

Phone numbers (all contact numbers for you; doctor/vet; pharmacy; mechanic; school/daycare; helpful friends/neighbors; alarm company).

Cash for groceries and emergencies.




Consent for medical treatment forms and insurance cards.

Take the name and address and phone number of hte hotel where you'll be staying. If you'll take a  taxi from your airport or train station, arrange for the taxi service in advance.

If you need wheelchairs or other alternative help in the airport make sure the airline is aware of that so thee service is available and waiting for you. 

Your travel itinerary.
