    “If you want to pack right when you travel then you really need to focus on packing light,” explains Tina Aldatz, chief executive officer of Savvy Travelers. “There’s much less hassle and stress when you pack light and stick to the basics. You can put your focus on your travel, rather than having all of your attention go to dragging around way too much luggage.”


    Here are Tina’s tips travel tips:


    Try to get everything into one carry-on. This will make it easier for you to move around and save you what can be more than an hour of waiting at the checked bag area. Chances are, you don’t need more than will fit into that one carry-on if you are not going for longer than a week.


    Keep your wardrobe as simple as possible while traveling. This will help you feel more comfortable and keep you from over-packing. Often, you will not end up wearing everything you pack anyway.


    Plan a wardrobe that gives you the ability to mix and match pieces, so you can pack less and still be able to choose from a variety of outfits.


    Wear layers when you get on the airplane. Keep in mind that what you are wearing won’t count against your baggage, so layer up. This will help you get more to your destination, especially if you will be traveling somewhere that you may need warmer clothing.


    If you are a reader and will want multiple books or magazines, opt for taking a tablet or Kindle. It will save you space and make it easier for you to carry your bag.


    Take measures to keep well while traveling by plane. Germs abound on airplanes, so board them with surface wipes. As soon as you reach your seat, be sure to wipe down your tray table, armrests, seat belt, and vent knob with Savvy Travelers “Klean Offs” super-sanitizing wipes.


    When packing your carry-on bag, opt for rolling your clothes, which will help to keep them from getting wrinkles and will give you more packing room. Also, opt for small toiletries to save space, including things like hand and body wipes and Savvy Travelers “No Sweat” deodorant wipes.


    “When you pack lighter and smaller you will find it’s a breeze to get through the airport and on to where you are headed,” says Margie Floris, co-founder of Savvy Travelers, a marketing expert who also helped Foot Petals to become globally successful.

    Always buy your own water or fill your empty water bottle (after the security check-in) before board a plane, even if you are flying business. You never know what can happen. Having a big bottle can keep you happy and healthy.


    Always pack a change of clothes for long flights on top of your carry-on here you can get it.


    Never touch any water on a plane but bottled, even to brush your teeth.


    Use wipes to wash your face and hands.


    Pack a big soft Pashmina to wrap in and silk pillow case. Both weigh nothing and fold up tiny. But they will keep you cozy and protect you from unwashed pillows and blankets that may be full of germs!
