Make sure you’re ready for your solo summer getaway

Planning a solo getaway this summer? You’ll probably feel an extra little bit of pressure to ensure that you’ve got everything prior to your departure. So whilst you’re getting everything ready, check out this list to ensure that you aren’t missing something essential.

A good pair of sunglasses

You can’t underestimate the power of a good pair of sunglasses. Whether you’re planning on spending your days laying on the beach, by the pool or exploring the city, you’ll need a great pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.

Why not invest in your vision and check out these black sunglasses from Eye Buy Direct? They’re simple, stylish and affordable and will provide you with all the UV protection that you need to keep your eyes safe in the sun.


Whilst we’re on the topic of protecting yourself from the sun, sunscreen is also an important thing to pack before you set off.

Does this sound familiar; you arrive on the first day of your holiday, excited and overwhelmed by everything. You just want to check out as much as you can as soon as you can. Before you know it, you’ve got a sunburn, meaning that you have to be doubly careful with the remainder of your holiday.

Besides the short term pain and discomfort, as we all know there are more serious long term effects too, so make sure you pack some high factor sunscreen in your luggage!

A plug converter

Phone charger? Check. Camera charger? Check. Plug converter? Uh-oh! The last thing that you want to be doing on the first day of your holiday is trawling local stores for a plug converter. If you’re savvy, you’ll be able to pick these up relatively cheaply before you go and avoid wasting valuable holiday time.

Also, make sure you double check the plug type of your destination before you buy to avoid disappointment.

A diary or scrapbook

If you’re heading off on holiday alone then it’s fun to spend some of your time writing down what you’ve gotten up to. If you go for a diary, it can be a fun way to reflect on your travels afterwards. Alternatively, you can take a scrapbook and fill out the main things that you have done. Then you can leave spaces to stick in your holiday snaps when you get home!

These will act as a great reminder of your solo travels and perfect for sharing with friends and family.

A copy of your prescriptions

On the extreme off-chance that your luggage goes missing, you will want to have additional copies of your prescription handy. The last thing you want is to be without your prescribed medications!

This doesn’t just go for medication either – if you wear contact lenses then you will also want to have your eye prescription
