The Top Ultimate Travel Packing List For Students

Are you tired of packing and unpacking your bags every time you travel? I am! A few years ago, I started using a travel packing list to organize my packing and make sure I didn’t forget anything important.

Over the years, it has evolved into an ultimate travel packing list that includes everything I could possibly need (and more) when traveling. With this ultimate travel packing list for students, you’ll never have to worry about forgetting something again!

A strong travel backpack

The first thing to consider is the backpack itself. You want one that is comfortable, has a lot of pockets and compartments, as well as being waterproof. The best way to choose your perfect travel backpack is by getting out into stores, looking at different types on display and trying them on for size.

Then it’s just a matter of finding one that fits comfortably on your back (and preferably doesn’t make your shoulders ache), can hold all of your essentials and does so without weighing you down too much.

Another great feature for any student who wants to go traveling is an internal zipper pocket where you can keep things safe from thieves or pickpockets when out exploring foreign cities – especially if those cities aren’t exactly known for their lawfulness!

A phone charger that has several ports

It’s a good idea to have a charger that can charge multiple devices at once. If you’re traveling with friends and family, this will help you all stay charged. You can also use it to charge different devices at the same time, which is useful if you have a lot of battery draining devices like cameras or tablets that need charging.

You can also use one of these plugs without the actual plug part of it! Some hotels don’t provide enough plugs in their rooms so having one of these gives you extra options!


Headphones are a must-have for your trip. They let you listen to music, podcasts and other audio without disturbing others.

There are many kinds of headphones out there. If you’re going on a long flight or train ride, noise canceling headphones are really useful because they block out engine noise so that you can sleep better. You can also get in-ear earbuds that stay inside your ears better than traditional headphones, so they won’t fall off when doing physical activities like running around town or hiking in the mountains!

When packing them for your journey make sure to keep them safe by wrapping them in a soft cloth (like an old shirt) before placing them into your backpack/suitcase etc.!

Travel journal

A travel journal is a great way to keep track of all your adventures and make sure that you don’t forget any of the things you did.

It will also help you keep track of all the places you visited, so when people ask about their favorite vacation in Paris, or where they went in Italy with their friends, they can say “Oh yeah! We went there with our family.”

Floss picks and disposable toothbrushes

The best part about travel floss picks is that you can use them for other things. Flossing your teeth with your travel floss pick is one of the most important things to do when it comes to oral hygiene while on the road.

However, they’re also great for cleaning out small spaces, like between your toes or under fingernails. These disposable toothbrushes are perfect for getting those hard-to-reach places in your mouth and will be a lifesaver if you need to do a quick clean-up after eating something messy (like an ice cream cone).

You can find these items at any drugstore—just make sure they’re disposable!

Ziploc bags to hold your liquids in case they open

Another good option is to buy Ziploc bags at the airport or anywhere you can find them. These are great for holding your liquids and other things that might leak or get broken during your travels.

If you don’t want to buy them, you can use plastic grocery bags from home by stuffing the top with tissue paper so it won’t leak through on one side. And if you have multiple bottles of shampoo or lotion, it’s best to put them in one bag so they don’t open up and spill everywhere during travel.


The sun is a powerful force, and it has been known to cause skin damage. In order to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays, sunscreen is crucial. When you are packing for your trip, make sure that you have plenty of sunscreen on hand.

Apply sunscreen before going outside, at least 15 minutes before going outside (this allows time for the sunscreen to dry). Apply every 2 hours when spending time in direct sunlight or when exposed to UV radiation (inside or outside).

You should also apply SPF 15+ even on cloudy days because UV rays penetrate clouds as well as water—the reflection off the water can be just as dangerous as direct sunlight!

Inflatable pillow

The inflatable pillow is a travel essential. Whether you’re staying in hostels or hotels, it’s much more comfortable than a regular pillow. It’s also very easy to use and store, making it one of the best things to bring when traveling by plane.

An umbrella (or raincoat)

It’s important to have a raincoat or umbrella in your travel bag. You never know when you’ll be caught in the rain, and it’s always good to be prepared. As for choosing an umbrella, there are a few things to consider:

The size/shape of your umbrella is relevant: Do you want something small that can fit into your bag easily? Or do you want something big enough that it covers two people? This will depend on how long you’ll be out and whether or not someone else will be walking with you.

Wind resistance can also be crucial: Especially if there’s going to be strong wind while walking around town all day long!

Wet wipes or hand sanitizer

Wet wipes or hand sanitizer are great for cleaning up after a toilet break, or cleaning your hands or face. They are small, light and easy to carry around in a bag. You can just choose one of them instead of both!
