Kate’s travel tips
Passport protection Take a copy of the photo page of your passport and any visas you have obtained for this particular journey. Pack separately to your valuables or email it to yourself so you have all the details at your fingertips should you need them.
Iron – or not If you’re anything like me, you don’t go on holiday to iron. Try hanging clothing in the bathroom while you’re in a hot shower to steam out those wrinkles.
Less stress They say leaving on holiday is almost as stressful as moving house. Reduce the anxiety a little by checking in online to avoid too much queueing at the airport. Most airlines allow online check-in 24-48 hours before departure.
