Your must-have travel items


We asked you (via Twitter) what item of luggage was a ‘must-have’ when travelling in luxury.   And here’s just a handful of your many responses:

  • iPhone & headphones with Karl Lagerfelds compilations. Travelling relaxed (@AmandaGeissler)
  • laptop? ..depends on where i’m going (@aselina)
  • My battered old brown leather holdall, would be devasteated if I lost it. It has been everywhere with me. (@JCotterCraig)
  • Special soaps, comfortable PJ’s (@JosephONeal)
  • My Chloe Edith bag. I stuff a smaller purse in it, a cashmere wrap, and a dozen magazines. (@stacystyle)
  • Dermalogica’s Mini Travel Pack is rather nice (@robble1)

What item of luggage can you not travel without?

    If I was only allowed one thing, it would have to be the laptop. The next would be my camera.

    Or maybe it would be the other way round. ;-)

    And third, some kind of pashmina or jacket to protect me from the inevitable fierce refrigeration (air conditioning) in so many luxury hotels.

    It used to be laptop. Now it’s blackberry. I usually needed the laptop to use Maps to see where I was going that day, or to communicate. Now I can do all of that from my Blackberry.

  3. We think the most important thing to bring is a sense of humour and some patience! You’re travelling in luxury!

    Time is the most essential part of a luxury trip. But I guess this is an invalid answer as it won’t fit in your luggage.

  5. Savannah says:

    I would have to agree with Kay in saying my camera. I always say I could just go somewhere and not need anything. A toothbrush could come in handy

    I would have to say my camera, what other way to save memories from travelling? My laptop would be a close second though
