Packing Tips

Packing cube containing snacks for kids for family outing

With the little munchkins running around, knowing what to pack and how to pack can be challenging.

And that’s why we’re here. Check out these packing for family vacation tips before you clutter your suitcase.


1) Print a packing checklist

Print out this family vacation packing list we’ve created for you. It will save you time and stress. 

Passport. Check! Floral bikini. Check! Sunscreen. Check! And a few more essentials.

2) Plan your airport outfit before packing

Before you put anything in your bag, decide what outfit you’re going to wear on the plane. That way, you only have to look for it in your closet (and not scramble through your already-packed bag to find one pair of leggings).

Pro Tip: Layer your clothes and wear the bulkiest shoes / jacket so they don’t take up room in your suitcase.

3) Use clear packing cubes

EzPacking cubes are pretty much the angels of organization.

They are transparent, so you can easily see where you put everything. The cubes work similar to compression bags, so there’s no need to worry about unnecessary bulk in your suitcase.

Packing cubes are a lifesaver especially when you’re putting toiletries and clothes in one suitcase -- use the Extra Small Cube to pack mini versions of your favorite toiletries and a Medium Cube to keep your outfits clean and dry!

You can use the cubes to sort your kids’ clothes into one suitcase - blue for your little prince and pink for your beautiful princess. You can also store your makeup, chargers, kids toys, snacks and so much more.

4) Buy travel size toiletries

As much as possible, what you want is to maximize the space in your suitcase. So, rather than bringing the big version of your shampoo and conditioner, bring its travel-size variant.

Pro Tip: Instead of bringing soap, use the ones provided in the hotel bathroom.

5) Bring a collapsible bag

We can’t be sure that you won’t overpack and we definitely can’t monitor how many souvenirs you’ll come back with….so all the more reason to bring a “safety emergency bag”, also known as an extra duffle bag. Simply take the collapsible bag out to store souvenirs and avoid extra baggage fees (it also folds into itself when not in use).

The duffle bag is also a perfect beach bag -- use it to keep your camera, sunscreen, and other summer essentials and don’t be afraid to put it in the sand. It’s easy to wash, so chill out and read your book. You’re on vacay!

6) Bring a portable phone charger

Emergencies happen all the time and the last thing you want is to search for an outlet while you’re out there, soaking under the sun. Carry a portable phone charger in your beach bag so you can charge your phone before it its empty and you miss that perfect sunset photo.


We hope these simple tips will help keep your family stay organized, relaxed and happy to be traveling (especially with the kids!)
