Pre-Travel “To Do” Checklist … Free to Download …



Previously I’ve shared with you all a fantastic Travel and Packing Checklist to help you when packing to go on holidays in the hope that you don’t leave home with some really important item. Just in case you missed it, you can download a copy here.





But as well as thinking about what to pack in your suitcases, there are lots of other things and small tasks to think about before leaving home.


Whether your trip is for one week or three months, things you will need to organise might include some of the following:


  • Pay any bills that will fall due when you’re away


  • Make arrangements for the collection of mail in your absence


  • Organise any vaccinations that may be needed


  • Make arrangements for pets


  • Prepare and freeze a meal for the day of your return


  • Cancel your newspaper delivery


  • and many more …


And because there is so much to remember, many years ago I created a Pre-Travel “To Do” Checklist to help remind me of all these things. I’ve divided the list into 4 sections:


  • Booking Tips


  • things to be done in the final fortnight or week before travel


  • things to be done the day before you travel


  • and things to remember on the day of travel


This is FREE TO DOWNLOAD so grab your copy now, share it with your family and friends and have a great holiday!




So tell me, are you planning your next adventure and where would you most like to travel to?




  1. Hehe well I just left for a trip this afternoon but I’ll check back on this before my next trip ?

    • Bon Voyage, Lorraine … I hope you enjoy your trip and I can’t wait to read about it!

  2. That’s a great photo of the Statue of Liberty. And you have some very helpful tips there – I do like the one about preparing and freezing a meal for the day of your return xx

    • Thank you Charlie … I took this photo on our first trip to New York and it’s always been a favourite x

  3. I will definitely be bookmarking this for my next trip which will hopefully not be too far away. Thanks lovely xx

    • These checklists are great because they really prompt my memory for all those things that need to be thought of before travelling. I’m hoping to dust off my passport again before the end of the year … fingers crossed!

  4. What a great list! I will pin this for later. Thanks x
