The Essentials

Pack Toilet Paper Just in Case

Here’s a must-pack item for your next trip that most of us never really consider — an extra roll of toilet paper in your checked luggage.

Many travelers mistakenly assume there’s toilet paper at hotels, restaurants and other facilities they’ll be visiting. But this is not necessarily true.

Are you traveling to Morocco, China, the Philippines, Turkey or Ecuador?

In many cases, toilet paper is either not available at public facilities or you may have to pay a small fee to have access to it.

Forewarned is forearmed — so don’t forget to pack a roll before you go.
