Packing List for International Travel


As you embark on your trip, we aim to alleviate any concerns related to planning and packing. This list has been thoughtfully curated to help you enjoy your vacation without getting stressed about what to pack or how to pack. It draws inspiration from my personal travels, as well as insights from friends and clients. Please note that these are merely recommendations from Zasha World Travel, and there is no obligation to purchase any of these items.

  • Use luggage tags. Simple Tags  for every piece of luggage. 

  • Having an electronic tag helps to locate the bags in case they get misplaced. Apple Airtag and Galaxy Airtag can be conveniently tracked through your phone.

  • Digital Luggage Scale The checked luggage weight limit for international and domestic flights is usually 50 lbs. Exceeding this limit will be subjected to extra baggage fees, To avoid these fees, weigh your bags and keep the weight under the limit.
