School holidays are almost here, and if the thought of packing suitcases sends a shiver down your spine, you're not alone. A recent Censuswide study 1 revealed that packing is a major pain point for Brits, with nearly a third (32%) of Brits taking time off work to pack for their holidays and over a quarter (28%) describing the “chore” of packing as severely anxiety inducing.

One way to lighten the overwhelm of packing is to use Gemini. It can curate a list of what to pack based on the details you provide. The same survey found that nearly a quarter (23%) of Brits overpacked for their trips. Gemini can streamline packing to the essentials, helping you take only what you need.

How to use Gemini to pack

Give Gemini — now available on Android and iOS — your destination, airline and travel dates, and it'll whip up a personalised packing list based on the weather, baggage allowance and even your planned activities.

For example, you could say: “What should I pack for a two-week trip to Bodrum, flying economy on a budget airline? I need to fit my clothes, including swimwear, going-out tops, plus my liquids into my cabin bag to avoid extra charges.”

Gemini can give you tips to pack light for your trip to Turkey and itemise a list of clothing you may need.

Locally, we are also launching the “Gemini Packing Squad”, a team of packing experts who will tour the UK to help people pack their bags pre-holiday using Gemini this summer.
