Before setting your foot out of the house and heading towards the airport, it is advisable to confirm the flight schedules beforehand to avoid any mood spoiling situations.
You must always prepare a checklist of the items that would be needed on the RTW trip and to see that whether all of them have been packed in your travel bag.

Do not panic. Once you have decided and planned your way to a RTW trip, it is because you have made the effort to undertake such a journey and when the real moment arrives and one is about to catch the first flight of the many flights, it is best to enjoy the moment and there must be no reason whatsoever to panic.
It is advisable not to pack those big bulky jackets that would occupy a major chunk of your backpack space. Moreover, also leave behind those luxury wear. Just pack easy going clothes which are comfortable and light as you would be on the move constantly.
It is advisable to leave all those heavy electronics behind. However, this is a subjective point and depends upon the need of the person. Therefore it is best to bring only those which are essential for the trip and leave the ones behind which would occupy too much space.
Do not keep anything to the last minute. Pack properly and confirm the flight schedule well in advance. Leave for the airport in a reasonable time to avoid any last minute hassles. The key is to never leave anything to be done at the last moment.
