That time of year has finally arrived! After all your hard work and patient waiting, you have finally booked to get away for your vacation. Whether you are a seasoned pro when it comes to travelling or you haven't been away on vacation for some time, you will always be in need of some extra tips. Arguably, one of the most challenging things about going on vacation is making sure that you pack everything you need.

While you may be able to buy a few things when you arrive depending on your travel destination, this may cost you a considerable amount of money and stress. So, instead, we recommend that you have this list on hand to help you make all the right packing decisions. You're welcome!

Electrical Equipment

If there is one thing most of us just can't live without these days, it is our electrical devices, from our phones and tablets to hair care appliances such as hairdryers and straighteners. We would recommend that you get in touch with your accommodations before you travel so that you know exactly what is provided and what you will need to take with you. This will help you save space in your luggage.

You will likely want to take your personal electrical equipment such as your smartphone with you in your hand luggage so that it keeps you entertained on your journey. But don't forget to also pack the right power adapter so that your equipment works across Europe too!

Appropriate Footwear

Packing the right footwear can make a huge difference in how much you enjoy your vacation. While wearing the right shoes may not sound like a big deal, shoes that cause you pain or discomfort may ruin your time away all together. The type of shoes you should wear depends on the activities you will be doing while you are away. For example, if you plan to go on hikes, walking shoes are essential.

However, if like most of us you are looking forward to a relaxing time away, you should wear comfortable and fashionable footwear. Treat yourself to a pair of designer Gucci sandals or Gucci slides that look great but will also keep your feet cool in warm weather. You can buy a range of designer shoes online at SSENSE, the luxury fashion designer store. No matter what kind of vacation you are going on or what type of shoes you are looking for, SSENSE has got all your designer clothing and footwear needs covered - check here for inspiration.

Travel Documents

Okay, yes, we know how obvious this one sounds but you may be surprised at just how many people get to the airport and realize they've forgotten some crucial travel documents. By travel documents, we don't just mean your passport, but also copies of your travel itinerary, your insurance policy, and any visa information you require.

By having our super useful and informative packing list to hand, you can ensure that you have everything you need to make this vacation is one to remember - for all the right reasons!
