Practical Princess Ford infographic on how to pack a car

  • Packing expert Elika Gibbs, the woman behind Practical Princess, reveals her tips in a new infographic 
  • It’s worth testing to see how many empty suitcases you can fit into your boot before filling them with gear
  • This means you won’t be playing packing Tetris with heavy bags, and can plan a space for the rear view mirror

According to a new study, more than half of Brits believe that a UK-based driving adventure is equally as enjoyable as jetting off abroad.

Loading up the car boot, however, was identified by the Ford survey as being the biggest cause of stress for families embarking on a road trip.

With this in mind, packing expert Elika Gibbs, the woman behind Practical Princess, has put together an infographic which lays out out the basics to fitting everything in.

It sounds obvious, but first laying out all the items you want to bring for each family member together, for example, instead of turfing things into random bags as you go, will streamline your packing.

It’s also worth testing to see how many empty suitcases you can fit into your boot – a pyramid formation, with the largest at the bottom is best – before you fill them with belongings, meaning you won’t be playing packing Tetris with heavy bags.

Stacking empty containers this way, leaving space for the driver to see out of the back window – a consideration easily forgotten – means you already have your game plan in place. Read on for more tips.
