The Ultimate Suitcase Items for a European Getaway

A Guest Post By Carol Trehearn, on behalf of Click Intelligence


Are you planning on travelling around Europe? From the historic streets of Rome to Ibiza's vibrant nightlife, there's an endless selection of destinations you can add to your holiday itinerary. 


Yet plotting a route across the continent is only the start. There are many different aspects you have to consider before jetting off, with one of the biggest being what to pack in your suitcase. While you have to be conscious of the right clothing to take with you - and this is dictated by the season and your planned destinations - there are also those little luxuries which can make your trip that much more comfortable and enjoyable. 
Here's a selection of the best suitcase items for a European getaway. 


Hand luggage


Most travellers will focus primarily on the size and price of hand luggage. They want the luggage to meet the measurement restrictions set by respective airlines, while they also don't want to splash out too much. However, high-quality hand luggage is worth the added investment. Lightweight material will ensure the bag itself doesn't take away much from the max weight limit, and a waterproof hard case keeps your valuable possessions protected. With the assistance of Cash Lady's ultimate travel pack , you can find the perfect hand luggage that will fit all your essentials in.


Tablet computer


You'll have your smartphone, yes, but a tablet computer has many advantages over their smaller counterparts. The added screen size means they're a much better option for reading a book, playing games, or watching videos, for example. Tablets also tend to have a greater battery life, which is great for your travels when you cannot get to a power outlet. 


Electric toothbrush 


Even the cheapest of hotels will typically provide you with a toothbrush. Yet that doesn't mean you have to use it. Instead, it's always recommended to take your own toothbrush - particularly if you have an electric one that provides a more effective clean for your teeth and gums. 


Noise-cancelling headphones


You want to take in the sights and sounds as you explore during your travels. With that said, there are times - such as on the aeroplane and waiting around for trains - where you want to zone out and be in your own space. This is where quality noise-cancelling headphones can play an important role. They give you the enviable opportunity to block out the noise around you, allowing you to enjoy your favourite music or podcast without being disturbed. Wired has a list of the best noise-cancelling headphones. 


Passport wallet


You might overlook a passport wallet, but it's a great accessory to have when travelling. First of all, it helps to keep your passport protected, obviously. Another advantage is that you can store all of your important travel documents and items, such as credit cards, hotel reservations, and tickets, in one convenient place. 


Sunglasses


Sunglasses are not just about looking stylish. They're also a useful tool in keeping your eyes protected against the sun's UV rays, which could lead to issues like macular degeneration and cataracts. If your travels are during the summer months, you must have a pair of sunglasses with you - even if you're only visiting the UK!
