Packing list for warm-weather vacations with affordable, eco-friendly, and fair trade picks as well as safety essentials. This guide will show you how to pack for travel to cold-weather destinations in 2020, even with just a carry-on bag. Grab your FREE printable checklist below!

Get ready for your summer trip with this easy-to-use packing list that will fit into a carry-on bag! This was the exact packing list I used for nine weeks of backpacking in Central America and over six months in South East Asia.

I’ve specifically picked multi-purpose clothing to cover different activities from beach days to hiking. In total there is enough for 10 days without washing, which should be the maximum you need to take for any journey. You can also save money and time by hand washing clothes along the way.

Hygiene kit

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends staying home to protect yourself and others from getting COVID-19. However, if you do decide to travel, here are a few essentials that can help to reduce the risks.

If you are planning to clean your accommodation, see the CDC’s guidance on how to clean and disinfect (or refer to the advice from your local government advisory).
