Your Summer Holiday Checklist

Summer is here!

It is a busy time of the year, and we've made packing for holiday easy with this handy checklist of items often forgotten about:

  • Prescription medication (if applicable)
  • Hayfever medication
  • Travel sickness medication
  • First Aid Kit (plasters, anti-septic cream etc)
  • Nail scissors and clippers
  • Reading glasses and/or glasses case
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect repellent and bite/sting cream
  • Toiletries – toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, and soap
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Snacks (for long car journeys with young ones)
  • Wet wipes (to clean up after the snacks have been eaten!)
  • CDs or playlist sorted for that long car trip
  • Travel games & activities to entertain the kids
  • Camera (plus charger and memory card/stick)
  • Night Light (for your little ones)
  • Torch (and batteries)
  • Sunglasses
  • Hat (ideally with a brim)
  • Comfortable footwear
  • Rain jacket and jersey (be prepared!)
  • And don’t forget your phone charger!
