This Free Printable Ultimate Travel Checklist is the perfect companion to have by your side as you pack for a trip. Because leaving an essential behind is always the worst feeling, no? I've created three designs of this travel checklist...just print and pack. And off you go. 
Ultimate Travel Checklist
Since we're kicking off travel season, so I thought it would be the perfect time to share a free printable Ultimate Travel Checklist. Download your own list below (available in three designs).

Free Printable Ultimate Travel Checklist

This is a very thorough 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.

How to Use This Ultimate Travel Checklist

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 a dry-erase marker to mark the list as I go. I also pack it in the bottom of my suitcase to make sure I use it on the return trip, too. It's that best way to ensure everything makes it back in my suitcase. Laminating means I can keep it in my Home Organizational Binder for years and just refer to it when I prepare for a trip.

I'll be honest, I don't pack everything on this list, myself (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.

There is a spot for quantity and a spot to check that the item is packed.

Using a Travel Checklist
I've also included additional spaces to write in extra items that you like to include on your travels, too.

Laminating Checklists
To make these travel checklist printables reusable and dry-erase friendly, I laminate these at home with these
 Avery Self Adhesive Laminating Sheets. I've actually been using these Self-Adhesive Laminating Sheets since I was a preschool teacher, about ten years ago. They're awesome to do quick laminating at home, without having any kind of special machine. I get mine at Amazon here. The key is to print on regular paper, not card stock. 

I also use fine tip dry erase markers on all of my laminated lists, including this travel checklist. Click here to find them at Amazon.
