I'm going to share with you the list of My top carry-on Essentials that I've Learned over 12 years of flying and Hundreds of flights while this list is Mainly for people who are checking a bag It's still relevant for all carry-on Luggage thank you to Christopher cluse For sponsoring this video and we'll tell You more about them later and if you Enjoy travel advice like this don't Forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel and hit that Bell so you don't Miss out on any future videos paperwork I know it's the age of everything being On our phones and digital but when it Comes to travel it's still a very good Idea to have physical printed out copies Of pretty much everything so this is my Passport case that I keep all my Important documents in it contains My passport obviously any vaccine Records I have and then inside here I Will have printouts of all of my Confirmations so these are my return Flights my hotels any tours I'm taking Pre-book Transportation or any e-visas Now there are a few reasons for this There's been times that I've been Waiting in line for Customs or waiting In line for a shuttle thinking I've Downloaded what I needed onto my phone To only find out that I didn't and I'm Struggling to either connect to the Really crappy Wi-Fi or I don't have a

Cell service yet and then I can't get The documents I need and it's just That's not the situation you really want To be in also I just don't like handing My phone over to customs agents or Anyone else I would much rather hand Them a piece of paper that says Everything it needs to on it another Thing is shuttles or pre-book Transportation a lot of times they want A printed out copy of your confirmation Booking that they will then take when You get onto the shuttle and then they Won't give it back to you so print it Out and a pen an essential item that you Will need when you're filling out Paperwork on a plane or during Customs So you don't have to borrow someone Else's and never keep personal Information in your check luggage Because it's not always that the airline Loses your bag sometimes someone else Could take your bag whether that is by Accident or maliciously it happens it's Happened to me before someone's mistaken My bag for theirs because they were the Same looking bag Comfort items now I Traveled many many years in my early 20s Without bringing a neck pillow no matter How long the flight was or my travel day But now that I am older and in my 30s I Appreciate a good neck pillow on any Flight that is longer than five hours Neck pillows are definitely something

You have to know you're going to use if It's worth bringing such a big bulky Item with you on your flight a good eye Mask for any red eyes or overnight Flights that you're taking and I like to Bring a light sweater because it is Always cold on playing means it is Always cold Electronics I never like to Put my electronics in my checked bag not Only are they expensive items so they Could be more of a target for theft but They're also fragile items so rough Baggage handling which does happen can End up unless I'm gonna pad these really Well they could get broken in transit But the main concern is that the lithium Batteries in these devices can Spontaneously Catch Fire which when it's In the cabin they can be caught quicker By the crew that is trained to Extinguish fires like these but if it's In the cargo hold then it can be a lot Harder to deal with I also like to bring Either a book or an e-reader with me Because a lot of times if I'm flying Budget Airlines they don't have Entertainment screens and for those Budget Airlines I always like Downloading their Airline app before I Board the plane because sometimes their Entertainment system is through the app But if you wait until you're already on The plane then you might not have Wi-Fi Or cell connection to download the app

Sunglasses is this is an item that you Might not think to put in your carry-on But I always do just like Electronics They are fragile and can be expensive so They're more likely to be prone to theft Or damage during Transit it's also handy To have a pair of sunglasses when you Are coming off a red eye flight and it Is far too bright in the airport for you At that moment or if you have a long Layover and you have time to actually Leave the airport and go explore and It's a beautiful day and these Sunglasses that I'm wearing are from Christopher Clues who are the sponsor of Today's video Christopher Clues is a Danish eyewear brand with a sincere Focus on craftsmanship and using only The best materials they're committed to Providing the finest products with a Conscience as their entire line of Sunglasses blue light glasses and Prescription glasses are now made from a Hundred percent eco-friendly and Biodegradable materials as a small Company from Denmark Christopher Clues Managed to get NFL superstar Quarterback Tom Brady and world-renowned Swedish Supermodel Elsa Hosk engaged in Designing an exclusive collection of Timeless and biodegradable frames the Ones I'm wearing are part of the Governier collection which is named After the iconic Governor Beach on the

French island of Saint Barts in the Caribbean Sea a light and minimalistic Approach complements the subtle class of This Frame made with handcrafted Stainless steel and premium acetate the Frame is in a golden steel and a Sparkling champagne color I'll leave a Link in the description for you to learn More and even virtually try on these Sunglasses for yourself An empty water bottle so you keep your Water bottle empty as you go through Security and then you fill it up after Before you board your plane in most Modern airports they have water bottle Refill stations they're typically Located near the washroom or sometimes Just in random spots around the airport So if you just kind of look around walk Around you can find a spot to refill Your water bottle and that way you're Not having to use any of those plastic Cups that they give you on the plane or Any water bottles that you have to buy After you get through security that You're probably gonna pay like five Dollars for and if you are limited on Space and can't fit a whole water bottle In your bag then there are foldable ones That you can just kind of collapse down And pack one of those with you Moisturizers plain air is so incredibly Drying so for my own personal Comfort I Like to bring a little container of hand

And face moisturizer as well as some lip Balm and eye drops having good Moisturizer is even more so important Now that we're using Hand sanitizer all the time I'll just Put all those into my clear plastic bag Personal medication these are any kind Of prescriptions that I might have as They can be very time consuming and Difficult to replace when you are Overseas as well as I like to pack any Kind of supplements that I'm taking at The time and I usually contain it all in A handy dandy traveling pill case I've Never had any issues having any of my Pills or supplements in a case like this That is unmarked I know that might be a Concern to some people so you can bring The full bottles if you like I also like To add in some sort of headache Medication travel can give you headaches Sometimes so I like to have something For that headphones and earplugs if you Are someone who travels a lot you need To get yourself a pair of noise Canceling headphones it is night and day How much nicer it is flying with noise Canceling headphones they definitely can Be pricey and take up a lot of your Luggage space but in my opinion if you Have a long travel day with a lot of Flying these are worth bringing the Other option is earplugs I mean this is Mostly for like if you plan on sleeping

On a plane but they're just such a small Item to have with you and planes are Just so loud and there's like speakers And and people are loud so it's just a Good idea to kind of have a set with you Whenever you're flying charging cords And power Banks I know it can be Tempting to save space and put all of Your charging cords and bricks in your Checked luggage but if your flight is Delayed or if your check luggage is lost Then your electronics that you brought With you are going to be pretty useless After that initial charge wears off so You kind of need to keep all of the Extra batteries or cords or Chargers That you need for the electronics that You are bringing with you in your Checked bag there are many reasons to Invest in a power bank when you are Traveling because like even though Airports and airplanes nowadays have Charging stations or plugs they are very Hard to find mind and are typically Always taken if you have any kind of Luck like me the convenience of being Able to charge anywhere at any time just Really cannot be beat so our largest one Is 20 000 milliamp hours and that is the Typical maximum size that you could Bring on most International Airlines if Your luggage is lost if you travel a Fair bit there is a good chance this Will happen to you at some point in your

Travels so prepare yourself or if you're Just traveling in a post-covered world Because baggage claim and handling is a Bit chaotic at the moment so it's a good Idea to have some basic comfort and Hygiene items to kind of just bridge That Gap and take you through a couple Days on your own without your checked Bag these are things like a toothbrush And toothpaste some deodorant maybe a Little bit of makeup as well as like a Spare pair of underwear and clothes But that's kind of like up to you just Depending on like how comfortable you Are being dirty so then I will just add All of those other toiletries into my Bag that would be my complete toiletry Bag for my carry-on luggage well there You have it now you're an expert in Packing a carry-on bag if you enjoyed This video please give it a thumbs up it Would help me out a lot as well as Thanks again to Christopher cluse for Sponsoring this video see you guys and Girls again soon bye
