Surveying 50 people, here is a list of 10 common things people have forgotten to take with them on vacation. Raise your hand if you recognize one or two. Don’t be shy; we’ve all forgotten one of these things.
Toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, soap are common things people forget to bring on vacations. They should rest assured knowing most if not all 3+ star hotels provide these amenities.
This is very important to bring to the airport. You’d be surprised how many people arrive at the airport only to find out they forgot their passports at home. It is now a major requirement when going international.
3. Money/Credit Cards:
I have gone on trips where many individuals forgot to bring money or credit cards. When you go to Europe and go into small cafes, credit cards will be useless. It is important that people not forget cash when going on vacation as well.
4. Camera charger/batteries:
Spare batteries and a charger could be easily forgotten by those going on a trip. Many do not realize how many photos they take on a trip, which sucks out battery life. I know when I went on a 12 day trip; I took my camera but did not think I would need to use a charger. 9 days into the trip, my battery died and I had no charger with me.
I am a fool for these. I always think that I packed this essential item but when I get on the plane or hit the highway I realize it is not in my suitcase and it’s not in my pockets. This item left behind could cost you $10 per disposable camera.
