All travel documents, cash and credit card

It is important you have all your travel documents listed. Some people may have more than others. The basic includes your passport / visa, ticket, credit card, cash, all insurance, reservations, itineraries and emergency contacts.

You may have other documents that are important as well and don’t forget to have them in your list.

Items you use regularly

All the above items are better kept in your carry-on bag and it could include other items such as your charger, mobile phone, tissues, hand sanitizer, pen, travel pillow, eye mask, headphones etc. These items are the ones that you use regularly and may even need them in the flight. Keep the absolute essentials and keep some personal storage units just in case. Note that most of the time you are not allowed to carry liquids in your carry-on.
