Do your laundry on the road

Rather than running the risk of overpacking, make sure to plan your outfits strategically before starting your adventure. A new holiday is probably not the best time to break in a new pair of shoes, or to bring along a dress you haven’t worn in years.

Choose a few main pieces such as shirts, shorts, dresses and pants which can be easily coordinated with each other. You can also choose to do your laundry whilst travelling, which might eat into some time during your day, but will help you in the long-run and will keep your suitcase lighter!

Wear your bulky items

Travelling during the summer? Planes can be cold so make sure to wear your bulkiest items whilst travelling to lighten your bags, and keep warm on the plane at the same time.

Keep your clothes looking fresh

When travelling with clothes which wrinkle easily, lay the clothing inside of a dry cleaning bag and then fold as normal. The plastic is handy since it prevents creases from developing in the clothes!

Place your shoes at the bottom

Who else has no idea where and how to pack their shoes? Shoes are the perfect place to maximise on space and store your socks and other smaller items which just don’t fit anywhere else! Pack them at the bottom of the suitcase so you can make room for clothes and other valuables.

Roll your clothes

The most effective way to maximise on space is to roll your clothes rather than laying them on top of each other. Try this for yourself and home and compare; we guarantee that rolling your clothes will save on space, and is so quick and easy!

De-pot your liquids

De-pot your liquids

Rather than carrying your liquids in their original containers, de-pot them into clear pumps and sprays. This way, you will know just how much product you have left and can monitor the amount of liquids in your checked and carry-on luggage.

Happy Customers!

Best place to park near the airport if you are travelling domestically or overseas. Prices are reasonable but their customer service is what makes them shine! Always a pleasant experience!



It's very close to the airport, the shuttle service worked beautifully, and it was reasonably priced. However, above all I was impressed by the friendliness of every employee I met working there.



Have been a customer on Park on King about 4 times now. Always impressed by their service and going above and beyond to make you feel like you're in safe hands.



The team was on time and informative and knew exactly where to be for for our return transfers. Made it very easy especially with 2 young children.



My goodness, the service was excellent and efficient on time for drop off and pick up. They took the hassle away and the trouble of trying to find a safe spot to park your car and return to pick it up.
