The Ultimate Packing List For Female Travelers

Many women think of traveling alone and most would dream of having a bag with a limitless bottom, just like Hermione had in Harry Potter. But unfortunately, this is not possible, so you will have a limited number of things you can take with you when traveling. We decided to make things easier for you, so we put up the ultimate packing list for female travelers.


These are absolutely essential, and you can’t go anywhere without them. They include:

  • Your ID
  • Your passport
  • Student / senior card
  • Health insurance card
  • Driver’s license
  • Money (both in your currency and one of the countries you are heading to)
  • Credit cards
  • A small notebook with emergency contacts, emergency numbers, the embassy contacts and the hotel number in case your phone gets stolen and you get lost

    The Ultimate Packing List for Female Travelers


    While you may be tempted to get your entire wardrobe with you when traveling, unfortunately, you are very limited. Here are a few guidelines to help you:

    • Every item should match in color with 2 or 3 more other pieces. That way you can combine them in multiple ways, and be able to create multiple outfits
    • Give priority to items that don’t need to be ironed
    • This mostly depends on the region you are heading to, but make sure to have both warm and light clothes
    • Limit yourself to 3 pairs of shoes (an elegant one, a casual one, and some sports footwear)
    • Take plenty of underwear, especially if you won’t be doing laundry on your trip
    • Also, take some pajamas or something comfortable to sleep in

     First Aid Kit

    Never underestimate its importance, as it may come in very handy in many situations and it may even make the difference between life and death in case of an emergency. The kit should include:

    • Medications (besides any specific medication that you are usually taking, it’s important to have a few pills for any of these conditions that may occur during traveling: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, fever, headaches, pain, allergies
    • A Water Filtration Device
    • Insect Repellents
    • Adhesive dressings (band-aids, gauze pads, bandages, etc.) – you can create your own kit, or even better, get one that has everything you need. For example, the Protect Life Emergency First Aid Kit includes 160 items, all packed in a compact bag. It includes antiseptic cleaning wipes, an alcohol prep pad, butterfly closure strips, adhesive bandages, a gauze swab, a cold compress, abdominal pads, a rescue whistle, a compass, an emergency blanket, glow sticks, scissors, tweezers and much more
    • Sun Lotion
    • Immunization records

    This includes:

    • Toothbrush
    • Toothpaste
    • Menstrual pads
    • Comb and hairpins
    • Small bottles of perfume, shampoo, and shower gel
    • Deodorant
    • Some basic cosmetics
    • Your phone
    • The charger plus any external batteries if needed
    • Laptop / tablet (if needed) + their chargers
    • Voltage adapters
