You won’t want to go out without these essential items. These aren’t really expensive but they are necessary for your travel photography.
Make sure to put these on your pack as soon as you get a hold of them. They’re very important but they’re easily forgotten. Your trip might take days and a fully charged battery won’t be enough.

Most cameras today come with a rechargeable battery. Make sure to bring these so when you swap out your battery for a new one, they will go straight to the charging dock. Make sure to bring a power adapter as well if you’re traveling overseas.
Basic cleaning gear
Take a lens cloth to wipe dust off your lens and a cloth for wiping down the outside of your camera.
Bring your UV filters with you. They’re not only used to protect your lenses, they also cut flares.

There is no such thing as too much space in storage. Capturing high resolution images will rack up data faster than you’ll expect. Especially when you’re on your dream vacation. A good practice is to get multiple memory cards instead of buying the one that has the largest storage capacity. It’s safer because you wouldn’t know if your card gets corrupted, lost, or stolen.
