Make sure to bring your own pillow and blanket and plenty of hand sanitizer. Airports are also filled with fast food chains, so try to eat at home beforehand. You’ll save money and empty calories.

Make sure to pack appropriately for the climate. If you are going somewhere sunny, be sure to stock up on sunscreen, and make sure to replace your bottle if it is older than a year! Always pack a sweater and umbrella, you never know when the weather can change.
