Minimal – unless you’re going somewhere incredibly remote, chances are you will be able to pick up shampoo and shower gel somewhere local.

Weight – read the allowance for your airline and stick to it. Weigh your bags before you get to the airport if you can to avoid any nasty surprises otherwise you might be handing over extra money or worse, having to dump your precious clothing in the nearest bin!
