Packing Hints

PRINT complete list off- top right CLICK "View More info" above first picture

During your travels you will meet two kinds of tourists – those who pack light and those who wish they had. Here are a few hints:

  • Bring less and wash more – Plan every few nights to spend 10 minutes doing a little wash. Take along small packets of cool-wash detergent, wash clothes before you leave for dinner and they should be dry the next morning.

  • Color pallet – select dark clothes that dry quickly and either don’t wrinkle or look good wrinkled. Plus it is fun to buy clothes along the way.

  • Appropriate dress – During the tourist season (April- September), most concert halls go casual. It is acceptable at symphonies, operas or plays for ladies to wear dress pants or skirt and men a decent pair of slacks and a good-looking shirt or sweater.

  • Inappropriate – Shorts are uncommon in Europe and considered beachwear, especially for mature woman in big cities. Some churches, mostly in Southern Europe, have modest dress requirements for men, women and children: no shorts or bare shoulders. So consider your plans for the day and tuck in a light wrap or t-shirt in your bag.

  • Checked luggage – be certain to weigh your luggage or be prepared to pay fees. Mark your bag inside and out with your name, address, and emergency phone number. Only use TSA –approved locks on your bags. I never lock my bag and have never had a problem. We do not recommend packing anything valuable (jewelry, cash, camera).

  • Carry-on baggage – Pack your important items in your hand luggage being cautions not to make it too heavy. A bag with rollers will save your back when in airports and standing in line. If you elect to use a back pack, be aware of the space taken up behind you.

We booked a river cruise to Budapest with Lynda at Laura's Travel Service, Inc. in Redlands. Even though we live is North Carolina we were referred to her.

This cruise was the most relaxing cruise we have ever taken. The other cruises offer too much for us and way too much food. River cruises are so different because you get to stop and get off or not. Also, the private balcony and a smaller body of water was really wonderful. You can do whatever you want. You can sit with different people we we preferred as opposed to assigned seating like other cruises. You can skip a meal and nobody notices. No packing up and going to different hotels.

We've enjoyed all of our trips in different ways but this was the best and the most relaxing that we have ever taken and Lynda was the most helpful from beginning to end. For example, when we got to London we had to stay at the Marriott because our flight was the next morning and Lynda emailed us a bullet point list of how to catch the air train. It was so exact and on point! It took all the stress away. We will use her for all our trips.

My parents moved from Redlands in 1985 to the East coast and still use Laura's Travel Service, Inc.

Booked our honeymoon three weeks before we had to leave with Laura's Travel. All we had to do was pack our bags and get ourselves to the airport! So easy with them!

We wanted to thank Lynda at Laura's Travel Service, Inc. for planning our last minute Puerto Vallarta trip! The private local tour took the experience to the next level. We would have never seen the back roads, whole in the wall restaurants with exceptional food, history, etc. We HIGHLY recommend the private local tour no matter where you travel! Also, thank you for the tip to exit the airport to find our transportation! We had no idea that the transportation people just inside the terminal take you to a time share presentation but you think you're going to your hotel. Had we booked our trip online we would have NEVER known this!! Thank you AGAIN!! We will ALWAYS use your services when we travel!

Just enjoyed ( with Lynda's help) a fabulous romantic Danube Cruise with AMA. I agree with Tom. River cruising is a great way to go!!!

We haven't used Laura's travel for a while but we always had wonderful service when we did. It is time to reconsider an old favorite.

If you travel, call Laura's Travel, you will be glad you did!

I have never used a travel agent because, like a lot of people, I thought it was too expensive. My 25th anniversary is next year and we want to go to Greece and Italy. We have never flown international and it was so anxiety provoking for me to plan it that I kept putting it off. I am always worried about the arrangements and going off of the recommendations online is always scarey. In fact, I have put this trip off the past 5 years because of all the stress it causes me. I finally gave in and met with Lynda and it was the MOST exciting experience I have ever had planning travel. The peace of mind to have someone plan your travel who has actually been to where you are going is priceless! The best part? The fees to plan the trip are far less than the time I would have put in and the extra money I would have spent "not knowing the corners to cut." THANK YOU Lynda. We are SOOOOOOO excited!

My wife and I would like to thank Laura's Travel Service and Tom specifically for all the help planning our Bali trip. It turned into the best vacation of our lives. The Melia Bali resort was 5 star and just beautiful. The Pertiwi Resort was fabulous after we had them change our room (the first one was dirty). The people of Bali are extremely friendly and accommodating. We engaged in so many activities that we actually lost weight, but not from lack of eating

Thanks again. We'll certainly come back to Laura's Travel Service for our next excursion.
