Key Clothing

Bring with you a few spare clothes and underwear, and above all, a pair of shoes – sneakers, sandals, boots or whatever – adapted to the temperature of your destination.

As it is cool in the cabin, also bring socks and a little wool; sweater, scarf or even a small blanket.

As for accessories, be sure to bring your sunglasses… and your glasses!

You obviously take money and passport with you, but it is also better to bring all the documents you may need once at your destination.

For example, bus tickets, car reservation documents (such as your license), information on your accommodation reservations, important phone numbers and addresses, maps and plans, insurance papers and finally, proof of identity in addition to your passport.

Your on-board toiletry bag should at least contain: tissues, deodorant, cleansing wipes or washcloth, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrush.

If possible, add moisturizer (it’s time to use your dusty samples) and a sleeping mask and earplugs.

Finally, of course, don’t forget to bring your medication!


For a short flight or even for a longer flight, especially with a stopover, plan a snack, such as fruit, a piece of chocolate or crackers.

And if food isn’t included, pack a snack for the road. Also, don’t forget your pack of chewing gum, especially if your ears get blocked during takeoff or landing .


During a long flight, it is better to have something entertaining in your hand luggage . Whether it’s a book, a magazine, a travel guide (it’s time to plan a little what you want to visit), an iPad (with movies or series), an iPod or all these things, just relax and catch up on your favorite readings or series.

If you plan to work, still have enough to pick up a little, especially if you are on vacation!

Last minute flightsf you have decided to be flexible on the date of your departure (and if your schedule and your profession allow it) look at last minute flights. Many airlines offer them. Discounts range from 20% to 80% either on flights only, or on flights AND services (transport, all-inclusive, service, etc.). Who knows, your dream trip may be much sooner than you imagined..
