Diamond Resorts International ® -- Vacations for Life ® -- Five Most Important Things to Pack When Traveling

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - April 14, 2016) - Global hospitality and vacation ownership company, Diamond Resorts International®, is dedicated to offering vacationers the best experience possible when traveling. Families, couples, and friends often pack their bags and head across the country to different continents to be a part of something new and exciting, and to take a break from their everyday life. The vacation provider believes the key to having an enjoyable trip is to pack the essentials and prepare for the unexpected fun along the way. Diamond Resorts International® has compiled a list of five of the most important things to pack to ensure a memorable vacation experience.

When heading to the Caribbean for an amazing week of snorkeling and kayaking, or to Canada for a family ski trip, vacationers should pack the appropriate clothes to make themselves as comfortable as possible. Extreme changes in climates can be incredibly exciting and enjoyable, either when relaxing on a hot sunny beach, or exploring the snow-filled mountain tops. With a big, winter coat, or shorts and shirts, individuals can embrace their environment, guaranteeing the best experience possible.

Another important item to bring during travels is the essentials kit. Diamond Resorts International® suggests bringing a small pack filled with travel-sized sunscreen, insect repellant, over-the-counter medicine, and other items that may be useful. Whether backpacking across the country, or visiting cultural and historical cities, it is always important to be prepared. If traveling with children -- portable games, books, and other forms of entertainment can help transform a commute into a fun-filled adventure for the whole family to enjoy. Easily transportable luggage, which is durable, lightweight, and practical, will ensure that vacationers can travel to their destination in a more relaxed manner.

In today's technology-driven society, traveling with a smartphone, tablet, or other device is essential when remaining in touch with your loved ones. Diamond Resorts International® recommends packing a second charger and extra batteries to communicate with family members, hotel staff, or emergency services. However, it is also recommended to put the phone away to embrace the peace and serenity of vacationing.
