A Good Coat
Top of the list is a good coat. It is not hard to find an affordable winter coat online, so there really is no excuse for not buying one.

Naturally, you want something stylish, but you really need to make sure it is practical too. The last thing you need is to be waiting in the snow or rain for a delayed coach only to realize your coat is too thin to keep you warm and dry.

Because it is big and bulky, nine times out of ten you will be wearing your coat during the journey. Therefore, you really should look for one that has enough pockets to hold the essentials. If you can, buy one with an inside pocket that can be zipped up, so you have a safe place to stow important items like your passport, phone and travel documents.

Hats and Gloves

It is always worth buying a good hat, gloves and a nice scarf. Wearing them will make a huge difference to how warm you stay. A good scarf will really help to keep the wind out. Try to pack gloves that allow you to still use your smartphone. That way you can use your travel apps without having to get your hands cold.

Good Footwear and Thick Socks are Essentials

Regardless of when, or where, you travel good footwear is an essential. Take shoes or boots that are properly worn in and comfortable to wear. Make sure that they are big enough to accommodate a pair of thick socks, which you will need to keep your feet warm.

If the shoes or boots you own are not already waterproof consider spraying them with a specialist water repellent. Also, take the time to check the soles to make sure they are not too worn or coming away from the upper. That way they will be far less likely to spring a leak while you are out sightseeing.

Warm Jumpers and Trousers

Bear in mind that your clothes could take more than a day to dry out if you get wet or you want to wash as you go. You really should have at least three complete changes of clothing with you when you travel in the winter.

Dress in Layers

When planning your winter holiday wardrobe try to dress in layers. A pair of lightweight leggings may seem like a strange item of clothing to pack, but being able to don them under your jeans will really help you to stay warmer.
