Travel Tip of the Day: Bring a Sweater

SweaterBring a Sweater
It doesn’t matter if you’re traveling from Hawaii to Tahiti—always bring a sweater with you. Not only will the plane be freezing, especially by the exits, but hotels and restaurants can be, too…and especially in warmer destinations because the air-conditioning is turned up so high. Better safe than sorry.

  1. So important…I now also carry a shawl or light blanket to avoid using the ‘who knows when they were washed’ blanket …if you even get one. Especially important on Red Eyes

    Good tip but the correct grammar would be: Take a sweater. It’s a question of direction.

  3. I live in Palm Springs, CA and even when it is 110 degrees here in the summer I still take a sweater with me to movies, restaurants, etc. as they keep those venues so cold. I know people, especially out of state and Canadians must look at me as crazy, seeing me carry a sweater into a movie when it is so hot outside.

  4. I always bring a shawl with me when we travel. It has saved me from “freezing” multiple times.

  5. I like a hoodie myself. I stuff it in a pillowcase. If the plane is warm, it makes a pillow. If the plane is cold (BTW – tell the ward/stewardess and they will often turn up the heat) then the hood will also cushion my head while I nap.

  6. I’m a California girl–we learn early to take a wrap of some kind–used to be a sweater but now a pashmina works well….

  7. Of course this is a must. But prefer the one with the hoodie. You don’t want to be uncomfortable during the long train/plane/boat cold travels!

  8. Great tip special for room when we can`t disable clima.

  9. I always have a hooded sweatshirt with me and i live in Las Vegas

  10. I always have long sleeve or shawl with me wherever I go. But this is best as a reminder to the readers. Thanks

  11. Johnny,
    I agree…I always bring a sweater, even in the middle of summer :-) When I forget, I’m always sorry, if we go to a movie or a restaurant. I also carry a scarf and gloves to Paris, even if the weather is lovely, because it can change on a dime!

    Best,
    Sandy in Central Illinois
