What To Bring On An Overseas Flight Checklist

Are you gearing up for an exciting overseas holiday? To ensure a smooth and enjoyable flight, a well-packed carry-on is your best friend. Whether you're a frequent traveler or new to the game, this checklist will help you cover all the essentials for your overseas flight.

Travel Documents

  • Passport and visa
  • Printed itinerary and reservations

  • Travel insurance details

  • Driver's license or ID

I like keeping all my travel documents in a passport and travel document holder. This way, I don't need to search my whole bag for all the different documents.

Health and Comfort Items
  • Prescription medications
  • Over-the-counter medications

  • Travel-sized toiletries

  • Neck pillow and eye mask

  • Earplugs or noise-canceling headphones

  • Compression socks

  • Personal hygiene essentials

Tip: I find having a thick pillow neck hurts my neck because you basically lean forward, so I'm now turning my neck pillow to the front of my neck, so my chin is resting on the neck pillow rather than my neck (if that makes sense).

Electronics and Entertainment
  • Laptop, tablet, or e-reader

  • Charging cables and adapters

  • Power bank

  • Headphones

  • Entertainment (books, magazines, or downloaded movies)

Clothing Layers
  • Jacket or cardigan

  • Scarf or shawl

  • Comfortable socks and shoes

  • Extra set of clothing

Snacks and Hydration
  • Reusable water bottle

  • Healthy snacks (nuts, granola bars, etc.)

  • Gum

Money and Valuables
  • Wallet with local currency

  • Credit cards

  • Travel wallet or pouch for important documents

Essential Travel Gadgets
  • Travel pillow for lumbar support

  • Travel-sized laundry detergent (for extended trips)

  • Luggage locks

  • Travel-sized sewing kit

Emergency Supplies
  • First-aid kit

  • Emergency contact information

  • Copies of important documents (passport, credit cards) - put these in a different bag though

"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward."

- Leonardo da Vinci.
