Trip to Anywhere

Our Ultimate Travel Checklist

Preparing for a vacation is more complicated than ever. And so the key to a stress-free trip is all about preparation. From making sure your passport is valid and confirming your itinerary to bringing necessities like a phone charger and umbrella (just in case), we’ve created these travel checklists for planning and packing. It’s also critical to remember that some destinations require COVID-19 testing, health screenings, and/or temperature checks prior to your departure flight, upon arrival, and/or throughout your stay. We strongly encourage you to review these requirements so that you know what to expect!
