Packing for Crete: The 5 Most Useful Tips to Ensure a Hassle-Free Holiday

Heading to Crete for your dream vacation? We can’t wait for you to experience the beauty and charm of this enchanting island. To make your journey even more enjoyable, we’ve put together a handy guide with our top 5 packing tips. Say goodbye to packing stress and hello to a seamless getaway!

  1. Don’t Overpack – Buy Locally: Save precious space in your luggage by skipping the temptation to pack bulky toiletries. Most hotels, including our very own Castello Infinity Suites, provide complimentary shampoo and conditioner, so leave those bottles at home. Additionally, sun cream is readily available in local shops, allowing you to pick up a small bottle upon arrival. Embrace the convenience and leave unnecessary items behind.
  2. Keep Clothes Safe and Wrinkle-Free: Nobody wants to arrive at their destination with wrinkled or stained clothes. To ensure your light-colored garments remain pristine, fold them inside out before packing. Shoes can be protected by wrapping them in plastic bags or using shower caps to cover the soles. Roll up your clothes instead of folding them to save space and keep fabrics looking fresh throughout your journey.
  3. Kindle: Your Portable Library: Bookworms, rejoice! Save valuable space and weight in your suitcase by investing in a Kindle. This nifty device allows you to download and carry numerous books without the added bulk. Alternatively, bring along cheap paperbacks that you can leave behind during your vacation, making room for treasured souvenirs on your return.
  4. Personalize and Label Your Luggage: Avoid the stress of identifying your suitcase at the airport carousel by personalizing it with colorful luggage tags, ribbons, and stickers. If you have a plain black suitcase, this is especially important. These little touches will not only make your bag stand out, but they’ll also add a touch of personality to your travels.
  5. Essentials in Your Hand Luggage: Prepare for any unforeseen hiccups during your journey by packing your essentials in your hand luggage. Valuables, travel documents, a change of clothes, and any necessary medications should always be close at hand. In the rare case that your checked luggage gets lost, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your essentials are within reach.

We hope these tips will help you pack smart and travel with ease to our beautiful island. At Castello Infinity Suites, we’re excited to welcome you to Crete and create lasting memories during your stay. So, get your packing done efficiently and get ready for a holiday filled with relaxation, adventure, and unforgettable experiences.
