1. Nail Cutter/File

It is impossible to understand how useful and handy this little thing is. No matter where you go you always run the risk of breaking/chipping a nail. Having a nail cutter around lets you deal with such messy situations. Their usefulness shines the most during the month-long holidays. It saves you money and time from visiting salons which are the last thing anybody has planned in their itinerary.

2.Mosquito Repellent

Second in our list is a seasonal item. The reason why it’s still up in this list is because of how essential having mosquito repellent is. The tropics are usually famous tourist spots but most travellers forget that winter is somewhat the rainy season of the tropics. And with the rain come our wicked friends. Tropical Diseases are terrifying and we want all our readers to stay safe and healthy so they can enjoy their holidays to the max!

3.Wet Wipes

Okay, just hear us out, this may sound crazy but wet wipes are probably the most underrated products ever. Here’s why: You can use them for anything at all. They can work as face and hand wipes if the situation requires it and can also be used to make a warm compress to deal with acne and also fight a fever.

4.Instant Noodles

The fan-favorite is back once again and for good reason, traveling in other countries means trying out different cuisines. In countries like Japan and Korea, the use of spices is quite limited and hence a lot of people from countries like India may become tired of the foreign cuisine and this suggestion is for them. Always bring some food from home, something you’re familiar with. Instant Noodles is different in different countries and hence bringing a few packets of your favorite variety of Maggi can help you survive those nights where you get homesick. Bonus points if you get some foreigners into your country’s cuisine.

5.Extra pair of Shoes

Wherever you go, as a rule of thumb, always keep an extra pair of shoes/sandals with me. It’s always a good idea because you never know when your shoes may become wet. Maybe you’re at the beach when an unsuspecting wave hits and drenches you. Maybe you’re at the Countryside when it begins pouring down relentlessly. Maybe you just slip and fall into the swimming pool at the resort you’re staying at. The point is, you never know. This concludes our list for the essentials items for when you’re traveling. Let us know how this article was helpful to you and we hope all of you enjoy a fine vacation!
