Choose your clothes wisely

No matter how much you try and relax in your seat, it is often difficult to unwind completely on the plane. In order to make yourself as comfortable as possible, it’s essential to wear loose clothes that allow you the chance to swap and change the way you’re sat when you get the chance. There is nothing worse than feeling restricted, so if you have the opportunity to spread out across a few seats, comfy clothes will let you do so!

Too hot? Extremely cold? Long-haul flights can either leave you boiling or freezing – if it is cold on there, make sure you have packed some layers, but if you’re warm, ensure you are not wearing your thickest jumper without bringing something lighter to change into. A long pair of socks are great for cold feet, too.

Pack the essentials in your hand luggage

Freshen up before and after your meal by packing some handy wipes or anti-bacterial gel. Lightweight and easy to carry, they are an essential item for every piece of hand luggage. Looking to sleep while on the plane? 

Invest in a fantastic neck cushion – if you have never used one before, you will soon be converted. Another must-have for a long-haul flight includes appropriate shoes. Ladies – if you’ve started your journey wearing something super-stylish yet high, you may appreciate your trainers when you reach the other side.

Organize your travel to and from the airport in advance

After you have stepped off a long-haul flight, the last thing you will want to be doing is organising your transport to wherever you’re staying while in the UK. Whether you are heading to a hotel from Gatwick airport, or making your way to stay at a friend’s house for the duration of your trip, booking your travel to and from the airport in advance will save you time, and a lot of hassle.

Whether you’re there to sightsee, catch up with friends, visit family or simply add to the number of countries you’ve visited, by following these handy three tips you’ll spend less time stressing, and more time getting excited for your upcoming holiday.
