Top Travel Tricks You Need to KnowWith that spring break trip and a highly anticipated summer getaway around the corner, you’re in need of all the travel tips you can get. It’s not very often that your travels go off without a hitch, so any extra tricks and hacks you can incorporate during the packing process, the better. Don’t worry; you’re not alone — we feel the same way. After hours of packing and sitting on top of your luggage to get it zipped (because we’ve all been there), you’re often left thinking there has to be a better way. We decided to get the deets for a stress-free travel experience from fellow jetsetter and lifestyle blogger, Lauren of Fashionably Lo. This self-proclaimed over-packer and travel pro gave us the dish on her favorite luggage and her top three tricks to make your trip that much easier.

The Bag: Large Foldable Roller in Banana Leaves Fuchsia
“I love the bright and bold print of this bag — it makes finding your luggage at baggage claim super easy! I’m also a huge fan of the folding capability. It can slide right under my bed or behind the clothing rack for storage.”

The Trip: Hilton Head, South Carolina
“I took this luggage on a weekend getaway to Hilton Head, South Carolina. It was the perfect bag for a long weekend since I could fit all of my outfits (self-proclaimed over-packer here), shoes, accessories and toiletries . . . and even a few last minute outfit choices.”

Trick #1: Do the roll
“Learn the power of the roll! I roll up everything I pack into my suitcase so that I can fit as much as possible. As an over-packer, rolling up my clothing is super helpful in ensuring I can bring everything I want!”

Trick #2: Steam on the go
“Fun fact: once you roll up all of your clothing, almost nothing makes it out wrinkle-free! I always bring a portable mini steamer at all times to ensure I look put together on the go.”

Trick #3: Pre-pack it
“Keep a pre-packed bag of essentials in your luggage at all times. I’m notorious for forgetting the little things like toothpaste, Tylenol, etc. I now keep a small cosmetic bag full of the must-haves that I can just drop into my suitcase for any trip.”

Well, that was easy. We have a feeling that our summer travels will get so much easier. Are you going on a longer escape? See how we pack a carry-on for two weeks.
