Tips to help you pack

Split up your valuables: Split up your bank cards, cash, travellers' cheques and credit cards as much as possible in different pockets, your bags and wallet when packing. In case you do get robbed, at least you won't be strapped for cash.

Backpack tips: When you are packing things into a backpack, place the lighter items at the bottom and the heavier ones on top. Your bag will feel lighter this way as the pack rests on your lower back.

Clothes: Pack only what you know you will use and if you are travelling for more than three weeks, plan to wash on the road. You can cut back on the number of clothes items by packing multi-purpose clothing.

Medication while travelling

If you plan to travel to a foreign country, it is important that you provide for your medication needs before leaving. An illness in the middle of your trip can ruin your vacation and cost you money to get needed medications.

Buying medications in foreign countries can be expensive. By thinking ahead and packing smart, you can stay healthy and enjoy your time.

Certain drugs such as some specific brand of drugs may not be available in all countries; make sure you have listed all the generic names of your regular medication, if you are not planning to take them with you in your trip.
