There are two types of ice pack, or maybe an I.C.E. pack…
Unfortunately, I cannot think of a great deal to say about the type that pop in the cool box…but the other type of I.C.E. pack may be of assistance to those undertaking long term trips, especially when travelling overseas. When long term touring, please prepare an I.C.E. pack. On many an occasion when travelling, a copy of your passport maybe required, for example when purchasing a mobile ‘phone SIM card. I prefer to take a copy of the passport to the shop rather than take the original. Often, when checking into a campsite, some I.D. is required – again I prefer to leave a copy of my passport rather than the original. Rarely has this been accepted, with the receptionist insisting to see the original.
Your I.C.E. pack
I – stands for IN
C – stands for CASE
E – stands for emergency.
In your I.C.E. pack – basically a large envelope, ensure you have photocopies of your passport, driving licence, van insurance, travel insurance, tax disc, log book, personal travel insurance, copy of EHIC card, copy of AA breakdown number etc, copy of pet passport and so on.
Take a couple of I.C.E. packs with you on your travels and leave a copy of your I.C.E. pack with a friend in the UK
