61 Tip For other great travel tips and advice, or to plan your next break, go to www.getaway.co.za. Pack rolled items in Ziploc bags It compresses them even further. Individual zip organisers can also be used, much like a large toiletry bag. Even if you’re not concerned about space, big Ziploc freezer bags are great for stashing away dirty washing and preventing odours spreading to clean clothes. Roll up clothes We tested it, and rolling clothes rather than folding them does save space because the fabric is better compressed. It also prevents creases. The only snag is that it’s time consuming… Dip ear buds in essential oils Lavender and my favourite, ylangylang, work well. Place the buds between layers of packed clothes to keep them smelling fresh. Roll up your belt into a formal shirt collar This will keep the collar’s shape. Alternatively, snake the belt around the inside rim of your case to save space. Invest in thermal gear This means you need only pack one bulky coat for winter travel rather than too many heavy jerseys, tracksuits and hoodies. Store information on Dropbox Storing copies of travel documents and other essentials in the Cloud will give you digital access to vital documentation in the event of your things getting lost or stolen in any country. Include the serial numbers identifying your camera, laptop, smartphone and other digital items; a photocopy of your passport, airline tickets and other necessary info; plus a snap of your open suitcase so that you can identify your packed bag.
