Travel Packing Checklist aims to help novice and experienced travellers who want to ensure they are fully prepared upon arriving at their destination country. We all know how how stressful (and expensive) it can be arriving at your destination and realising that something that was essential to the trip was left back at home.

The website offers tips and tricks on how to pack and what to pack, and it is sorted by travel destination.

There are also reviews of travel gear products, including backpacks, travel accessories, clothing and electronics. It offers packing advice around the right amount and kind of clothing for a destination, preparing a fully stocked toiletry kit, and explains how to maximise packing space.
