Travel Tip of the Day: Pack a Bathing Suit

SpaPack a Bathing Suit
Always pack a bathing suit even if you’re traveling for business (or into cold weather) because you never know if and when an opportunity to use it will arise…and it doesn’t take up much space in your suitcase, anyway. I always pack swimming trunks that double as workout shorts so I can use them to go to the gym, hit the beach if a meeting ends early, or jump in the hot tub or spa.

  1. Pack it in your carry on…especially woman. If your luggage gets lost, trying to purchase a bathing suit is not much fun.

  2. It really is a good idea. I can’t tell you how many times I have ended up buying a bathing suit on a trip even though I certainly didn’t need one at home. And that takes time I don’t necessarily have on some trips.

  3. Absolutely! And if you keep it handy on your trip, as I did in Taiwan and Croatia, when you see a body of water you can just jump right in.

  4. Good idea, as long as you carry a compact microfiber towel and a ziplock bag for the wet items.
