Packing for your trip

Delaire_Constance_150410Packing for a trip out of town can be intimidating for many travelers. But getting ready for your next getaway doesn’t have to be a stressful event. With just a little preparation, you can pack like a pro! And before you pack, it’s a good idea to get all of your transportation needs squared away. If you’re flying into the Washington, D.C area, chances are you’ll need a ride from the airport. That’s where we come in. Affinity Airport Sedan offers personal, professional ground transportation service from all three airports in the D.C. area. So when you prepare for your trip, don’t forget to call Affinity!   What to bring When packing, travelers always think about outfits they’ll need while they’re away. But lots of little items are forgotten about or packed hurriedly at the last minute. Combat this by packing items as soon as you realize you’ll need them to avoid forgetting them later. And always remember to pack camera and phone chargers. You’d hate to be in front of the White House with a dead camera. Also, be proactive. Always include a small first-aid kit with aspirin, bandages, decongestant, and Neosporin. It’s also a good idea to take a refillable water bottle to save money buying bottled water. And don’t forget snacks. You’ll always need them.

Deciding which clothing to pack

It’s always easier to pack after you’ve done laundry and have lots of clean clothes to choose from. When deciding what you’ll wear, go with garments that don’t need to be ironed and will travel well. Avoid taking clothes you’ve never worn before. Stick with comfortable pieces that fit and feel exactly like you want them to. And try to take outfits that can be created with interchangeable pieces. Packing tops that match most of your bottoms will make getting dressed a breeze. With these simple packing pointers, you’re sure to have all your basic needs covered. And to make the trip even easier, call Affinity Airport Sedan. We’re happy to pick you up, and get you where you need to be.
