2. Copies of Your Travel Documents

One of the most important common items we forget to pack is unquestionably copies of our travel documents. No one goes on holiday expecting to lose their passport, or even worse, to have it stolen, although these unfortunate events do occur. Having copies of your passport and credit cards on hand however, allows you to head to your nearest embassy and have your passport reissued much more quickly, meaning you can get on with your holiday and minimize any costly inconveniences.
