Hey friends! With all of the traveling I’ve been doing lately, I decided I would put together my best travel tips for you! I know going on a trip is so fun and exciting, but getting ready to leave can actually be pretty stressful. There seems to be so much to do! Whether you’re planning a trip or leaving for vacation in a few weeks, here are my top tips when it comes to traveling.
Get a travel credit card
My first tip (if you already are a credit card user) is that you should get a credit card with your favorite airline or one that gives you travel benefits. I LOVE my miles and update program from my Delta Amex, I always get a seat upgrade, access to VIP lounges, free checked luggage, and even discounted hotel stays. If you already like to use a credit card, this is the best way to accumulate miles and get perks (and please pay off your statements, because if you don’t the travel benefits are just an illusion).
Plan your outfits in advance
Plan your outfits by the day to avoid packing too much extra stuff. It’s also nice for when you’re on vacation since you don’t have to stress about what you’re wearing every day. I usually use these packing cubes (they truly do help) and I add a jacket or blazer that would go with multiple outfits in case the weather changes. I also use this portable luggage scale to make sure my luggage isn’t over the weight limit! Nothing worse than having to pay for oversized luggage. I have a ton of travel hacks products on my Amazon Storefront, check them out here. Trust me, these are essential when traveling.

Wear something comfortable
Making sure your airport outfit is comfy is a must! Here are some of my favorite airport ‘fits.
Lastly, ALWAYS pack a carry-on with travel-size beauty products and an extra set of clothing, a blanket, and socks. Planes get freezing during longer flights and you’ll be happy you have something extra to keep you warm. Also, the odds of not making a connection or having a flight canceled are real and you’ll be happy to have extra clothing for a shower and other goodies to make you feel better. There’s also the possibility of lost luggage (I’ve been there too!) and you don’t want to be left with yucky airplane clothing for days or have to shop for things you don’t even want while you wait for your suitcase!
