Printable Checklist for Travel

Free Printable Trip Packing List

This is a very thorough trip packing list to make sure you never forget a thing when getting ready for long or short trips. Because organized travel is a whole lot better than unorganized travel. I've included several blank lines so you can add additional things for your own convenience.

How to Use This Trip Packing List

Below is an example of how I use this travel checklist. I laminate mine (details on an at-home way to do this without special tools, below), and use dry-erase markers to check the list as I go. I also pack it in the outer pocket of my suitcase to make sure I use it on the return trip, too (or simply upload it to your phone for quick reference). It's the best way to ensure everything makes it back in the suitcase. I also keep an additional copy in my Home Organizational Binder.

I'll be honest, I don't pack everything on this list, (there was definitely a time that I did). I'm now in the habit of only doing carry-on luggage. But, I wanted to include a very detailed list that will work for those who check luggage as well. This would be a good travel checklist for a road trip, too.

Printing & Usage Tips for Your Trip Packing List

  • Download your favorite Trip Packing List design here or below (there are additional alternate download links listed out below).
  • If laminating your list (I highly recommend this), print your list onto regular printer or copier paper. If you're not planning to laminate, printing on white cardstock will add to the durability of the list. I don't recommend laminating if you print on's too thick to laminate and often bubbles the adhesion.

  • SELF LAMINATE (it's a thing!):

    • I use these super nifty Avery Self Adhesive Laminating Sheets (pictured above in their old packaging design...these last me forever). These allow you to quickly laminate at home without a machine or anything. They're a game changer. Grab them here on Amazon for the best price I've seen.
    • When you laminate your trip packing list, you can use it over and over (I store one inside my suitcase so it's always ready for trip packing).
    • Using this list with lamination requires using dry erase markers. I recommend a fine tip dry erase marker. Personally, I use these Ultra Fine Tip Expo markers with my trip packing list. I get them here on Amazon.  
  • There is a spot for quantity and a spot to check that the item is packed.
  • I've also included additional spaces to write in extra items that you like to include on your travels, too.
