Ultimate Starter Packs for Travelers

By Travel Savvy

Let’s face it -- packing needs are not a one-size-fits-all undertaking. A traveling mom's needs in terms of lugguage contents is vastly different than a fun-seeking spring breaker, and the business traveler’s essentials differ from a millenial on a budget or a first class globe trotter. Whatever category you fall under, make the most of your adventures and discover the perfect 'starter packs' for your reference. 

Traveling Mom Starter Pack 1

Traveling Mom Starter Pack

The traveling mom is always prepared (because no one else in the family will be). In addition to clothing essentials and toiletries, she never forgets her iPad (because she knows her child(ren) will eventually sigh and announce a bad case of boredom), snacks for the hungry kids in tow, Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes, and of course, a lightweight and practical carry-on for all of these items. We like the Longchamp Le Pliage Medium Shoulder Tote for the always-ready-for-anything mom, because not only is it super washable yet chic, you can also personalize it by choosing from a variety of colors and stripes.

Business Traveler Starter Pack

Business travelers are the ones in the boarding area holding a cup of coffee in one hand and typing furiously into their smartphone with the other. They're usually toting a small carry-on bag for efficient travel and will have a pen, USB cables, business cards, laptop, and chargers at the ready in the top compartment of the bag. Tucked away neatly in the bottom will be a WiFi hotspot like the AT&T Unite Explore or the Jetpack® 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot.

Traveling Young Adult Starter Pack

The young college-aged traveler is budget conscious! Nothing fancy for this carefree adventure-seeker. It's just a singular backpack, Megabus tickets, a good book and sneakers. Bus etiquette must be followed of course... no talking on the phone and no loud music, so earbuds are a must. We recommend getting a pair that are lightweight and have great audio quality, like these Skullcandy headphones.

Spring Breaker Starter Pack 4

Spring Breaker Starter Pack

Like singing the National Anthem at the ball park and fireworks, Spring Break is an American tradition! Embarking on this coming-of-age ritual often signals a first-time without a parental unit in tow, helping you stay organzied. So what's a young, enthusiastic Spring Breaker need to complete this mission? Sunscreen, bathing suits, and hopefully a few changes of underwear.

The one item this intrepid voyager should also tuck into the carry-on is a S’well water bottle, because nothing dehydrates you like day-drinking.

Fab Traveler Starter Pack

The luxury-addicted traveler always embarks on every trip in style, wearing Adidas fashion sneakers and maneuvering a chic Louis Vuitton suitcase in one hand, clutching a "tall, light, half-caf caramel macchiato" in the other. In this carry-on: Ray Ban sunglasses, an iPad, Bumble and Bumble hair products, a lightweight cashmere sweater to protect against a chill, and our favorite - The Hydrating Facial Mask by La Mer! Ten minutes before landing, whip out a mask and apply. You'll look refreshed and as fabulous as ever!
