You deserve to take a break, and summer is waiting just around the corner to meet you halfway. Whether you're travelling solo, with friends or with your family, it pays to be prepared and has all the things you might need for the trip.

Who doesn't like to travel the world? But the only problem stopping you to do travel frequently is the budget issue, right? If you are single and making good money, then I am sure you are able to fulfill your travel needs frequently, but a budget traveller with a limited earning and big family are hardly able to make a single travel plan every year.

It doesn't matter where you're heading - just out of town or out of the country. There are travel essentials everyone needs to have, and if you are anticipating a trip this summer, make sure you have the following summer must-haves.

1. Disposable wipes


When you need to wipe your face clean or your finger, or anything for that matter, it helps to have your wet wipes in handy. Whether you intend to use it as a makeup remover, an after-meal cleanup tool or anything in between, you can count on wet wipes to be your lifesaver.

2. Moisturiser


The summer can take a toll on your skin. When it's summertime, you can expect it to look dry and dull, so make sure to pack light and gentle moisturiser to keep your face rehydrated. There is a gentle moisturiser that's perfect for your needs - no matter your skin type.

3. Sunscreen


Always, always keep in your bag is your favourite sunscreen. Others prefer sunblock, but sunscreen and sunblock have different coverages. Sunblock works by shielding your skin against UVB rays. Sunscreen, on the other hand, can protect you against UVA. Choose a sunscreen that can protect you from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

4. Waterproof Backpack


Backpacks are better than other types of carry-ons as they let you explore and enjoy an active vacation. You can easily move around with a comfortable, reliable and lightweight backpack, and using waterproof one takes away your worries about your stuff if in case your bag gets wet. Just make sure to find one with a waist strap and has tons of pockets.

5. Moisturising Lip Balm


The heat can cause your lips to dry, so make sure you have a moisturising lip balm with you always. It's best to find one with SPF. Your skin is not the only one that needs protection from the sun.

6. Rash Guards


No matter your age, there is always a rash guard that can fit you like a glove. They come in different styles and sizes making it so easy to choose one of your preferences. Womens rash vests can help you feel chic and stylish while offering sun protection. Now, you can enjoy having fun at the beach and not have to worry about comfort, style, sunburn, rashes, and abrasion. It can also keep you warm so you can stay on the water and extend the fun.

7. Sundress


Every woman needs a beautiful sundress you can rock every summer. This versatile dress can take you from morning till night. Plus, you won't have to worry about mixing and matching your clothes to look great. All you need is a cute blazer or cover up if you feel cold or you want to give it a new look.

8. Essential Oils


Didn't see this coming? Many are not a fan of essential oils, but some of these can be quite useful for travellers along with Bug Spray. For one, Citronella is an excellent natural insect repellent. If you have trouble falling asleep in new places, Lavender oil can help. Rose oil, on the other hand, can help alleviate the stress that comes with hectic travelling.

9. Comfy Sandals


It's hard to have fun in the sand when it's hot, and you're barefoot. Make sure you have a pair of comfy sandals that are lightweight, durable and anti-slip. Choose the one you can wear day and night, and you'll have more space in your bag for other essentials.

10. Microfibre Towels


Towels can take a lot of space, plus most don't dry as fast as you want them to. This is why we recommend microfibre towels. They are lightweight, dries you up fast, and all you need is to hang them up for a bit, and they'll dry more quickly than your average towel.

11. After Sun Lotion


Even with sunscreen on, you can feel that your skin needs a little bit more pampering after staying under the sun. Make sure to use your favourite after-sun lotion. This will help soothe any sunburn you may have, cool and hydrate your skin, stop any peeling and even preserve your natural tan.

12. Keep Sunglasses


With the sun scorching hot causing strain in your eyes, you'll need to keep a pair or two of your favourite sunglasses at hand. Not only will they help protect you from the sun, but you'll also look instantly fashionable by donning a cute sunglasses on the beach.

13. Cardigan


You need a cardigan, and you know it. These are perfect for your summer trip since they are lightweight, easy to pack and very easy to mix and match. Although clothing differs in terms of regionally but the following are the two must-haves.


14. Do You Have a Credit Card?


Well, I guess you already have a credit card. If not, then let me tell you that there are some good travel credit cards available with which you can easily spend for your travel and get good discounts, cash backs and earn reward points regularly. Check out the list of best travel credit cards in India and apply for the one that best suits your need.

Personally, I prefer to have credit cards for any kind of payment but never forgetting my spending power. Because at the end of the day, I should not spend unnecessarily and at the same time, should not miss those reward points also which I may not get if I pay through other modes of payment.

15. Take the perfect travel bag


This part is not for girls because girls need a lot of things to pack for their trip. But for a wise traveler whether man or women, bag size is the most important thing to consider. You do not need to take a large luggage or suitcase even you are going for a long trip. Leaving airport then catching bus and trains with large travel bag always gives us the feeling like we are not in travel mood, but are in trouble mood.

I personally prefer a backpack for convenience. So, before you leave your house take the right size travel bag which is not too big or too small.

16. Clothes to pack in the bag


For summer it is always recommended to take light clothes and clothes made of cotton fabric. Don’t even take any black clothes when your trip is in summer. Too many clothes for summer is not recommended. Because it is summer and you have to stay light to enjoy the trip. Clothing with merino wool fabric is also a good choice for both hot and cold weather. Don’t sweat by taking a large bag and wearing winter clothes.

We do this mistake mostly for the winter trip. We pack extra winter clothes than we actually need. Most of us take two winter jackets. One we put on and another we put in the bag. But the extra one makes our luggage size big and heavy. If you are already wearing a jacket you do not need to take another. If you feel less cold outside just put off your jacket and take it in your hand.

But in such case make sure your inner clothes are enough clod protective. In winter we have to wear boot and shoes. Especially when the trip includes skiing or during snowfall, we need to protect our feet by wearing boots. For winter protective boots check out this boot collection.

17. Travel gears to include


We cannot live without our gadgets even we are on a trip. Gears and gadgets are part of our life. Make a list of your necessary gears and gadgets that you mostly need. But do not take an extra and unnecessary thing because you have to take the gadgets that are required to enjoy the trip.

For instance, if you are going for winter trip you will need skiing pole, goggles and for summer hiking or trekking, you will need hiking pole, rope, knife, GPS, and things like that. So, keep enough room in your bag to place this gears by not taking unnecessary gears.

18. Do not miss on entertainment


A trip is not all about walking, hanging out with trip mates and sightseeing. You must be tired in your bed after returning to the hotel room. So why would you miss any of your favorite TV series during the trip? So, buy a local sim of that area to stay connected with the virtual world.

If your hotel provides free Wi-Fi then you do not need to think of it. But when you travel to a rural area like in some village of Africa or make a plan for camping, then you will need the local sim to connect to the network.

Make sure you have all these summer essentials ready for your next trip! What other things do you keep in your bag during your summer trip? Let know in the comments down below!
