How To Travel Like A Flight Attendant

Before you begin packing start laying out some of the outfits you would like to take along. Consider the climate of both your destination and departure locations. Packing does require some pre-planning. For 2-4 day trips bring up to 4 outfits, and 2 pairs of shoes. For overnight trips, I carry as less as possible.

Other things to do before your trip:

- Check the weather of your destination
- Have at least 3 contact numbers written down
- Copy of your ID or passport
- Make sure your luggage is the proper size for a carry on

How to Pack Like a Pro:

There are several videos on YouTube that you can watch... We love YouTube it is a great resource tool.
- Place your shoes in a shoe bag and place them at the bottom of your luggage
- Roll your pants and blouses and skirts
- For dresses, I like to put them in that plastic that you get from the cleaners and fold them over once    and place on top of everything else.
- Don't forget your pajamas or lounge wear
- Bring a swimsuit, you never know, you may want to get in the jacuzzi at the hotel
- Don't bring your expensive jewelry
- Always bring a tote bag for toiletries and water bottles, etc.
- Carry hand wipes
- Bring your own headphones

Travel Tips:

- If your bag is oversize, you can check it at the gate as a courtesy
- Check in for your flight online if possible
- Arrive at airport early at least 1 -3 hours before your boarding time
- Get through security quickly by enrolling in TSA Pre-check, go to TSA.Gov website
- Don't post your travel itinerary on social media
- Make sure your luggage has your name, address and phone number
- Do not place your wallet or computer in the seat back pocket
- Carry an empty water bottle
- Always bring a sweater or travel blanket, a lot of airlines don't provide them
- On board the airplane, always know your nearest emergency exit location

At The Hotel:

-Always be friendly to hotel staff, ask for a possible free upgrade. Give them a small gift of appreciation
-Join the hotels rewards program
-Do not place luggage on the floor ~ Use the luggage rack
-Check bed for bed bugs
-Sanitize the remote control
-Ask the hotel desk where is the nearest drug store or hospital, in case of emergency
-Always know your nearest exit location out of the hotel

How To Prevent Jet Lag:

-Get plenty of rest before your trip
-Take frequent naps
-Drink plenty of water
-Do not take any sleep aids while on board the aircraft

Now you are well prepared for your next journey, we wish you a safe and wonderful trip!
