Friday, July 12, 2019

Can you believe it’s already summer?! Personally, we’re so excited to get a bit of rest and relaxation now that we’ve got a break. Who’s with us?!

Luckily our friends at IHG Hotels & Resorts are having a Global Sale this summer! You can save at least 20% off stays booked by July 31 at thousands of participating locations worldwide.

This post was sponsored by IHG Hotels & Resorts. Opinions and tips are completely our own based on our experience.

To celebrate summer travel (and this amazing sale) we’re sharing our tips for making the most of your vacation, no matter what kind of traveler you are!

For the Business Traveler

Create a pouch with all your required charging cords and store it in your luggage. This way you’ll never be left with a dead computer battery.

If you’ve added a quick vacation to your next work trip, pack tops that can be worn under a blazer or cardigan for work meetings then worn alone for solo summer adventures.

For the Fitness Junkie

Don’t forget that shoes are valuable packing space. Stuff your workout shoes with socks or underwear to cut down on bulk and ensure your shoes keep their shape.

Trying to get in a daily workout? No need to pack an outfit for each day. Save precious luggage space and take advantage of your hotel’s laundry services.

For the Families

When traveling with kids, it’s worth the effort to create a packing list. This will ensure that you don’t forget anything vital like the sound machine or treasured lovey. And the list can be saved and used for future trips.

If you’re traveling with a baby, call ahead and ask if you can have diapers and wipes shipped directly to the hotel. This will help save space in your luggage.

For Everyone

To help cut down on wrinkles and creases, make like a clothing boutique and fold your clothing around tissue paper before placing it into your luggage.

Whether you use packing cubes or put your clothing directly into your bag, file fold everything. This will help reduce wrinkles and make it easier to unpack into the hotel dresser.
