Have you ever gone away at this time of year with your loved ones, only to realise you've left something important behind? My family and I usually alternate with the in-laws to visit each other's homes at Christmas each year. I find this journey particularly stressful. Not only do I have to buy and pack presents. I also have to make sure I pack all the family needs for this cold time of year, plus make sure everyone's got at least something from their Christmas list packed. This is no easy feat, I assure you.
I recently found out that Mondial Assistance is about to launch My Travel Checklist. This is a free widget to make all your holiday plans and packing a breeze. The widget will help you pack everything you need if you're going away for Christmas, or indeed any other time of year.
You can access this widget from your home computer, laptop or any mobile device, so you always have it at hand when you need it. Not only would you have all you need when you get to your destination, it will help you pack exactly what you need for the time of year you go away, and for your required destination. Isn't that clever!
Anyone can use this widget. It doesn't require any sort of technical knowledge. If you can send a text or download an app, you can use it. You can build your packing list from a group of suggestions or add your own items to the list based on your needs.
Don't worry, you can always change the items on the widget when you want. You can also email or print the material if you need to. Best of all, it's easy and free!
