Summer travel is back again!
While exploring new places or revisiting your favorite destinations, traveling comes with the loaded responsibility of packing.
To help ensure your summer travel is stress-free and full of joy, "Good Morning America" tapped the best of the best to share their tips and products to help you pack like a pro.
First up, Marie Kondo. We all know and love the organization expert who taught the world 'the life-changing magic of tidying up'.
Kondo shared that the first step in packing is the prep.
"Lay everything out first and categorize by the type of item to help give a comprehensive look at how many items you have. Before you start filling the suitcase, pare down and be honest with yourself about what you really need – the fewer clothing options to choose from, the more you can focus on the joyful experience ahead!"
"Clothes should be folded into their smallest possible size to help save space. Thin fabrics are best to roll to prevent wrinkles," Kondo continued. "Pack your items vertically, so you can see them all at one glance. That way, you don’t have to take out everything to find the one item you are looking for during your trip."
In addition to Kondo, "GMA" also tapped the BEIS Travel team for some additional insight on stress free packing tips.
"Take the hassle out of packing with a bag that does the hard work for you. Everyone can be a packing pro with the right bag," the BEIS team shared.
Whether your summer adventures take you on the road or on a plane, your packing plans should adjust accordingly.
"No matter how you’re traveling, the right organization is essential," the BEIS team shared.

"When you’re taking a plane to your destination, there’s more strategy involved. First, you have to think about the weight and size of your luggage but don’t worry, with the built-in weight indicator in all of our luggage you can take the guesswork out of it," the BEIS team shared.
"Pack items you won’t need until your destination in the hardest-to-reach places and keep anything you need in-flight easy to access. The Mini Weekender and Work Tote fit perfectly under the seat in front of you, whereas The Carry-On Roller or The Weekender works great in the overhead"
"Our road trip recommendations include, The Car Caddy so everything you need stays put despite any twists or turns and it’s perfect for keeping any backseat riders entertained. The Sport Pack also makes any stops along the way as easy as possible by keeping all your essentials right at your fingertips," the BEIS team concluded.
