When embarking on a trip for a week or more, it's often tempting to pack your whole wardrobe. However, along with making your luggage heavy and burdensome, big loads can leave you with little room for souvenirs on your return flight. Before you arrange for airport parking and accommodations, consider these tips for efficient packing.
Know What to Bring
Start with packing a clean set of basic undergarments for each day of your visit, plus one extra. Beyond that, pack one shirt for each day, and then one item of other wardrobe staples—sweaters and pants or skirts—for every two days of your trip. Be sure to also pack a jacket or coat. Bring three pairs of shoes at most—preferably two casual pairs and one formal pair for vacations, and vice versa for business trips. With toiletries, choose travel-size bottles and pack them according to TSA regulations.
Roll It or Fold It
When it comes to maximizing luggage space, the way you pack clothing is equally important as the amount you pack. Rolled clothes take up less space than folded items, but the latter method is less likely to cause wrinkles. Tightly roll any wrinkle-proof knits and wools, and fold items that are more likely to wrinkle, such as button-up shirts.
Pack Things in Order
Stuff your shoes with as many balled-up pairs of socks and underwear as will fit, and then place your shoes and toiletries at the bottom of your suitcase. For the next layer, pack all of your heavier rolled garments, such as sweaters and jeans. Above that, place lighter rolled items, like t-shirts. The top layer should be your folded garments, such as dress slacks, shirts, and blouses. Additional items like belts, ties, bras, and hosiery can be placed along the edges of your clothes, as well as in the side pockets of the suitcase.
Once your flight is booked and your suitcases are packed, let Park Plus Airport Parking provide you with safe and secure parking. We offer airport parking, luggage service, and a whole lot more to fliers at Newark Liberty International Airport and Westchester County Airport.

In the world of air travel, the holidays are the busiest time of the year. However, with a few precautions, you can help ensure that your holiday trip is hassle-free. The following tips will help you handle luggage lines, travel delays, and lengthy flights.
Pack Your Luggage Light
Try to limit what you pack to the basic essentials, such as toiletries, medications, and a planned wardrobe. That way, you can take your luggage as a carry-on and skip the conveyer belts once your flight lands. If you must check baggage, pack a change of clothes and any irreplaceable items in your carry-on bag, just in case the airline misplaces your suitcase.
Consider Gifting Alternatives
Don't wrap any carry-on gifts before you arrive at your destination, as airport inspectors might have to unwrap them to check their contents. To avoid this risk altogether, consider shipping the gifts to their destination ahead of your flight. As another alternative, you can simply buy gift cards for your loved ones.
Travel During Off-Peak Times
Avoid traveling during the busiest times of the holiday rush. The day right before a holiday is often the most crowded, and flights scheduled for afternoons are prone to delays. As long as it doesn't cut too close, considering booking your flight early on the same day as your family get-together. In general, early-morning and late-evening flights are the most reliable for timely arrivals.
Keep Essentials on Hand
When getting ready for a flight that will take several hours, be sure you have food and relaxation aids on hand. Munchies, of course, are essential for staving off hunger during your trip, as you can never predict traffic or flight delays. With earplugs, you can have peace and quiet during your travel, regardless of noise, chatter, or screaming kids. If lengthy air travel bores you, an eye mask could help you get some sleep during your flight.
