The C&C Holiday checklist

We thought we would put together a checklist for you that you can refer to when getting yourself organised to go away. It can be overwhelming to pack up for a week long trip as you don’t want to be caught short, so we hope this helps. Honestly, stick to this list and you will be packed up the night before your trip and in bed  with a cuppa before you know it!


Please Note: The items listed may seem very obvious to you, however, no matter how organised one can be sometimes, something is usually forgotten. We find this really helps!

  • Your travel directions
  • Your travel insurance documents
  • A torch
  • Travel Alarm
  • Beach Towels
  • Address book for post cards
  • Travel Rug
  • Binoculars
  • Camera

If you are planning to take the dog on holiday with you because you can’t possibly leave your furry friend behind you will have to remember these essentials….

  • Bag of dog food
  • Bowls
  • Dog Bed
  • Dog Towel
  • Toys
  • Poo bags!
  • Tic tweezer ( you never know!)

There are endless things you will want to squeeze into your suitcase, because although you probably think you will be travelling light, unnecessary things always get in there somehow! We hope we have highlighted the major necessities and that you find this list helpful……

Is there anything you can’t possibly live without when on holiday? We would love you to share your thoughts in the comments section below. We aim to add to our list with the help of our viewers.
