THE CHECKLIST | Interrail - Pack, Plan & Go!

So you're planning your journey around Europe, let's get you organised! If you're interested in planning a trip as a whole, check out my Plan, Pack & Go guide here. You can also check out my VIDEO GUIDE if you're interested! Sam and I managed to plan a month long journey within a day, because I made lists and was extremely careful with my organisation. Here's how we did it!





ONE - YOUR BOOKINGS
Booking things is the first thing you need to do: you're left with the rest of your budget, you know your times and dates, and you can plan everything else around that.

In order of what we booked first:
-Flights into Europe (Madrid for us)
-Interrail Passes
-Train tickets to Gatwick Airport
-First few nights' accommodation (hotel, hostel, airbnb)

TWO - OTHER NECESSARY BUT BORING BITS
The next few bits should be done after the above, as you'll know the dates you're flying, how long you're travelling and maybe even where.

- Travel Insurance (we used Compare The Market just for the Meerkat Movies benefit!)
- Currency for the first few days and maybe a cash card (more info)

THREE - MAKE SURE YOU'VE GOT...
I have a big packing post in the works, but aside from clothes and toiletries, there are a few things you might not have already that I'd highly reccommend buying (or searching for them under your bed).

-European plug socket adapter
-Portable charger
-Plastic wallets to keep tickets, insurance documents etc safe

My main tip will be to have a notebook and pen with you at all times. Just make lists, things to buy, flight times, schedules etc. Set reminders on your phone and write things on your hand- just do everything you can to organise yourself and you'll be okay!
