Travel Tips Travel Tips

Summer is knocking on the door and that travel bug in you is itching to plan out your next destination! Will you be dozing off at the crystal clear waters & sandy beaches of Copacabana or backpacking through the vibrant cities of Europe? Or are you going on an exotic & cultural trip in Southeast Asia? Whatever destination and activity you have in mind; our Virgin Megastore travel checklist will help you sort things before you hop on the next flight out of here.

First things first – where are you heading to?

Have you considered who you would be travelling with? What would the weather be like? What are the sites to visit? We suggest doing some research for you to really think about which country suits your lifestyle and travel goals. Go ahead and pick up one of these books – you might just end up in Bora-Bora (all thanks to us!)

Pack smart - we don't want your luggage to be overweight!

Packing anxiety is a real thing. While it can get stressful, this dreadful task can be way simpler than you think; pouches, bottles, and bags are all you need! Distinguish which items you would need (not want) to bring during your trip and categorize them – toiletries, travel documents, tech gear, clothes, and a first aid kit are a must on your list.

Document like a travel writer

A true adventurer doesn’t stop travelling after visiting just one country. Trust us, as soon as you head back home after an unforgettable trip, your mind will be cluttered with thoughts of where you will be travelling to next. Which is why documenting as much as you can about your travels is always a great idea! Who are the people you met? Which place has set a mark in your mind the most? What new lessons did you learn? Note it all down and revisit it whenever you catch the travel blues.
