Suitcase Essentials for Traveling Abroad

At least once in your life, you’ll pack a suitcase. Hopefully, you’ll be packing to go somewhere new, somewhere across the ocean or continent! In that case, you’ll need to be prepared. Lucky for you, Jarvisen knows exactly what you need to pack in that suitcase when you travel abroad.

Here are Jarvisen’s top five essentials to pack when traveling to another country.



This one may go without saying, but we are saying it anyway! Whenever you go out of the country, you must have your passport, or--we are sorry to say--you won’t make it very far. It is best to get in the habit of keeping your passport somewhere accessible when you are traveling. Instead of stowing it in your luggage, have a special place for it in your purse or wallet, so you are never without it while aborad.

Comfortable Shoes

This one may be another obvious pick, but it is super important. Who knows when you’ll have to run to catch a taxi or make it to that connecting flight? Even more, when you’re walking around a city sight-seeing or searching for local gems and unique cuisine, the last thing you need is your feet hurting, so make sure you have a pair of comfy shoes in that suitcase or on your feet!

Water Bottle

Not everyone thinks about staying hydrated when there are so many things to see and be excited to experience. However, no matter where you are in the world, you need water! That’s why it is always a good idea to pack a reusable water bottle to bring with you, that way you don’t have to pay airport prices for water bottles and can refill in your hotel or restaurant when you’ve been out all day!

Travel Sized Toiletries

Whether you’re staying in another country for two days or two weeks, it is important to have proper hygiene! When packing for your trip, make sure to pack travel-sized toiletries like soaps, toothpaste, and anything else you may need. There is never any guarantee that the country or city you’re traveling to will have your haircare brand, so make sure you pack for yourself.


This essential is especially important when traveling to a country where you don’t speak the language. Picking up a language dictionary at your local bookstore can be the difference between getting back to your hotel or wandering through a foreign city hoping someone speaks English. Even better than a dictionary is a trusty Jarvisen Translator, which will make translating easy and asking for directions seem like a walk in the park.

Bottom Line

Packing for a trip abroad can be difficult, especially when you don’t know what you need to pack. Whenever you’re in doubt, just remember this list, and you’ll be good to go!


Good luck!
