Travel Check List for Europe

A great way to ensure that when you travel you have everything with you that you need is to use a checklist.

Just a Basic Travel Checklist

Clearly a checklist can be very much a personal thing in many ways, some of us are on medication for example and need to know that medication should be carried in the original packaging and with a copy of the prescription if possible. This makes it easier to prove it is for personal use.

But there are also items that we all may need to think about and the generic travel checklist below is intended for that purpose.

Important Items

  • Passport
  • Money/Credit Cards
  • Tickets
  • Travel Insurance
  • Contact Numbers
  • European Health Insurance card

Useful Items

  • Insect repellent
  • Insect bite cream
  • Mobile phone
  • Guide books
  • Travel adapter
  • Camera
  • Binoculars
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen

Travelling by Car

  • Valid full driving license
  • Vehicle registration document
  • Motor insurance certificate
  • Recovery insurance
  • European motoring lit
  • Sat nav
  • Maps

With respect to any documents listed, it is always worth considering carrying separate photocopies of the originals. Especially your driving license, because in some countries they may ask you to hand your license over to them if you were to inadvertently commit an offense.
