Our new member humanuscomotose
is seeking packing tips for an upcoming business trip. Specifically
what are the "must-pack" items as opposed to the "would-be-nice-to-pack-if-I-have-space" items. Furthermore, apart from hazardous materials, what are the "don't-pack" items?
As our members point out, this depends on factors such as: is the trip to an international or domestic location? How long is the trip? Hand luggage or checked bags? That said some general tips were offered. Electronic gear tops the list
I've got enough electronics to drive the Death Star (laptop, chargers, universal power plug, iPad, back-up drive, UBS sticks, spare batteries).
Then there is the gender specific recommendations
Male or female? I have a great tip about ladder resistant stockings, but unless you're a woman, or one of the rare men who wear stockings for work, it's probably not relevant to you!
Other items suggested include
-Various sim cards with data pack for countries being visited (used to carry a second 'overseas' phone, but now just operate with the unlocked iphone5, if someone doesn't know my email address/overseas number to get in contact, then they probably aren't that urgent)
-Cash in currencies for countries being visited (normally approx $100 dollars worth in each currency, plus around $200US extra) Enough to get out of the airport and to the hotel basically before hitting a local ATM with the preloaded 28 degrees card
-28 Degrees Card, personal debit card, CitiSelect Card. Priority Pass Card. UK Drivers License (not that I'm from UK, but doesn't bother me if it gets lost/stolen/held by dodgy thai cops)
-Toiletries kit (just the basics buy anything extra when I'm there) (moisturiser a must to reduce affects of dehydrated air in plane)
-Hard copies of flight itineraries, hotel bookings, passport. Business Cards
