7 Essentials For Your Toiletry Travel Bag

There is nothing worse than arriving at a destination and finding that you forgot an essential toiletry item. Aside from your medication, glasses, and makeup, there are a few essentials that should always be in your toiletries bag. 


Tours of Distinction’s Tour Directors recommend that you keep a pre-packed toiletry bag to save time and energy. The key to having a pre-packed toiletries bag is to double-check the quantity of what is in the bag before leaving home to make sure you have the appropriate amount of product before setting out. 

1) Travel-size Deodorant
2) Foldable Toothbrush
3) Lip Balm
4) Facial and Hand wipes
5) Bandages & Neosporin ointment
6) Over-the-counter meds - Aspirin, allergy pills, motion sickness pills, Tums, etc.
7) Face towel (if traveling to Europe)
