At PBteen, we know that traveling is a big part of life. As a teen, you’re probably on the move a lot, between classes, vacation and visiting friends and relatives. That’s not a bad thing; after all, spending time with people you care about and taking trips to places you’ve never been before is awesome. Travel bags are helpful because they’re an easy way to take your stuff with you wherever you go. Our Getaway selection has different types of luggage to fit any trip. Not sure what to bring along or how much space you need? Here are a few teen travel tips.
One thing that can help you pick out luggage is thinking about your destination. Is it hot or cold there? What kind of activities are you planning? Water sports like surfing or snorkeling usually mean bringing along specific clothes for the beach, as well as sandals, sunscreen and a hat you like. Having enough dry clothes to change into is nice if you want to grab something to eat with friends afterwards.
In colder climates, it can be helpful to prepare for worst-case scenarios just in case. Taking along a thick coat takes more storage space in your suitcase, but is definitely worth it if the weather drops. Of course, if your plans involve mostly indoor activities, you might decide to risk it and travel lighter. When visiting relatives in a cold climate, another option is to ask if they have spare stocking hats, gloves and other winter apparel that you can borrow for a few days.
No matter where you’re headed, it helps to pack according to your lifestyle. No one else can tell what to bring along or leave behind. Why? Because you want to feel comfortable anywhere you go. That goes for overnight stays at a friend’s house, weekend jaunts and weeklong vacations. If you like to have plenty of outfits to choose from, go for it. That way you feel confident and attractive when going out to eat or to a party.
When it comes to air travel, is it better to stick all of your things in a checked bag, or divide between carry-on and checked luggage? That’s totally up to you. Some people like to check their luggage so they can walk around the airport with their hands free. Other travelers prefer to keep an eye on their gadgets, so they opt for a carry-on or a backpack.
Having several sizes of luggage at home to choose from is nice, because not every trip is the same. Longer trips usually mean more clothes, while the things you take for a short weekend visit might fit in a practical smaller bag. Bottom line for pretty much any trip: keep it as light as possible, but make sure to bring everything you need or want.
That’s true for school too. Everyone’s class schedule and amount of homework is different. You might have to carry a lot of heavy textbooks and supplies, or you might only need your tablet and a few essentials. That’s why backpacks come in different styles and sizes. If things feel too heavy, a rolling backpack is an awesome way to avoid hurting your back.
When heading to tropical destinations for vacations, there are a couple of tricks that can help you pack the things you want. One tip is to roll up as many clothes as possible. Jeans, shirts, socks – pretty much anything that doesn’t need to be wrinkle-free – take up a lot less space when rolled up. If you plan on bringing back tons of souvenirs for friends, don’t forget to calculate the extra space you need for them on the way back. With anything breakable or fragile, try to carry it with you on the plane in your backpack so you can protect it. If that’s not possible, another option is to use socks or other clothes for extra cushioning around it.
