Lists For Your Honeymoon Packing

  • Passports – Right now go check the expiry date on both of your passports. The sooner you can do this the better. If your passports are expired or near expiry you may have to postpone your honeymoon. It is better to check your passports before you book the vacation. Prior to leaving for the airport double check or even triple check you both have them and keep them in a safe place throughout your vacation.
  • Photo ID – Check to ensure you have your drivers license or photo ID with you. If you are renting a car you will need this. You will also probably need this at the airport and also again when you check into your hotel.
  • Airline Tickets – Before you leave for the airport make sure you have your airline tickets or confirmation numbers with you. Double check the flight numbers and times both before you leave your home and and again before you fly home. One more thing to remember is different places have different time zones. Make sure you are on local time when you get there.
  • Cash, Debit Cards and Credit Cards – Check your purse and wallets to make sure that you have some cash, a debit card, and credits cards with you. Try not to carry a lot of cash on you in foreign countries. Most countries now have ATM machines that will work with your current bank card. If you have access to a computer check debit and credit card statements daily to make sure you haven’t received any fraudulent charges.
  • A Couple New Pens – Try pack a couple new pens for your vacation. Depending upon the country you are traveling to you will probably have some paperwork to complete when you get there and also when also when you returning home.
  • Travel Documents – Print off one or two copies of all of your travel documents. Make sure you have copies of your airline tickets, travel insurance, health care cards, vaccination reports, drivers licenses, and credit cards. If any thing goes missing you will at least have some form of identification and emergency numbers to get replacements.
  • Luggage – Count your bags while you are packing. Make sure when you are loading the car all your luggage cases are accounted for. Also check the number of bags you have when you get to your destination. You would hate to leave one behind or have one go missing.
  • Sunblock – If you are traveling somewhere tropical or traveling during the summer pack some extra sunblock. It costs a fortune when you get to resorts or areas with a lot of tourists.
  • Personal Care Products – Make sure you pack travel sizes of your hair care products, toothbrushes, lotions, perfumes, colognes, contact solutions, and hand sanitizers. If you are planning to wait a year or two to have kids you will probably want to pack some protection as well.
  • Footwear – Make sure you pack suitable shoes for formal events, casual events, and the outdoors.
  • Clothing – Just like with the shoes you will want to pack for formal, casual, and the outdoors. When you pack expect that the weather will be sunny and hot and rainy and cold.

  • Selfie Stick – You can easily take tons of honeymoon photos without asking strangers to do your a favor ! selfie time!
