Holiday checklist from – main image

Sea, mountains, forest… regardless of where we go on holiday, you will need to pack. Good preparation for a trip can save you a lot - not only worries!

First the documents

First of all – documents. When traveling around the country, you will need an ID card. It will also be useful abroad (in the European Union), although in many cases you will need a passport and a visa (if it is mandatory in the place you are going to). Additionally: an EHIC card, entitling you to use public health services in the EU, confirmation of insurance and a vaccination booklet (depending on the destination). If you plan to rent a car, you will need a driving license. Discounted sightseeing will be possible with a student or pensioner ID. It is worth taking copies of these documents with you: they will confirm our identity if the originals are stolen or lost.

Next, money

Secondly – money. Thanks to them... we will finally be able to buy all the things we forgot about (unless, of course, it is about documents or a credit card). They will be needed in unforeseen situations (such as a visit to the doctor) as well as foreseen ones (e.g. paying for vignettes and fuel when traveling by car). It is best to exchange currency at an attractive price in Poland - airports and hotels usually impose a high margin. The best rates are offered by online currency exchange offices. Cash will also be useful - smaller denomination banknotes or coins - for small purchases or the toilet.

Then clothes

Thirdly – clothes. What clothes we take with us depends primarily on the place we are going to. If we are aiming for warm countries - we will pack mainly summer clothes (shorts, T-shirts, airy dresses), we will take sweatshirts and jackets if we choose a more moderate climate. However, let's be prepared for any weather by taking one set of clothes to Majorca for cooler evenings, and to Scandinavia - a swimsuit. Appropriate accessories will also be important: a baseball cap, hat, sunglasses and swimming shoes or a cape and trekking shoes.

And also medicine

Fourth – medicines. A handy first aid kit may be necessary if there is no pharmacy nearby or we are unable to consult a pharmacist. We start with medications taken constantly. Next: dressing materials, painkillers and antipyretics, drugs for digestive problems. Products that soothe sunburn, repellents, and mosquito and insect repellents will also be useful.

And additionally...

Fifthly - cosmetics and cleaning products, electronics, books or social games to diversify your free time, beach accessories or camping equipment... and many other things that are worth taking on vacation , a list of which (and a checklist for download) has been prepared by Check it out, save yourself the stress and have fun!
