Travel accessories and items can greatly enhance your travel experience. I have been traveling the world for several years and have tried various accessories during this period.
Here are 10 of the best travel accessories that will make your life as a traveler better and more practical. Some are very ingenious, as well as light, so they are suitable for any type of trip.
My packing routine changed completely when I first discovered packing cubes. Since then, it has been much easier to organize and fit all my clothes into a smaller suitcase. These compression bags will expel air and therefore take up less space.
I use Eagle Creek’s packing cubes and can definitely recommend them. I also advise you to get cubes of different sizes, which makes it easier to organize your clothes.
A spoon fork is a very useful travel accessory that I think every traveler should have. It is an all-in-one cutlery, with a fork, a knife, and a spoon. This means you never have to worry about cutlery again when you travel.
It is perfect for those traveling on a tight budget who prefer to buy prepared meals from the supermarket or go hiking. A spoon-fork is also great if you take fruit or snacks to the beach, or when you have a picnic.
Bus rides, train rides, and long-haul flights that take more than a few hours can be uncomfortable, especially if you’re traveling economy class. With a travel pillow, you will instantly have neck support and be more comfortable.
I’ve tried many travel pillows over the years, but have yet to find an option that can compare to the Cabeau Evolution Pillow. It is sold in airports around the world and is worth paying its high price.
Unlike cheap, inflatable travel pillows, this one is durable and you can even wash the cover. I have had mine for several years and it is still as good as when I bought it.
Tile Sticker – Bluetooth Tracker
The Tile Sticker is a smart travel accessory that ensures you always find important things like keys or wallets. This is a Bluetooth tracker that you stick to the object you want to track.
And when you can’t find it, just open the app and you’ll hear a sound until you find the object. If you’re not sure where you lost it, you can also see the last location in the app.
Beach Mat Without Sand
If you go on a beach vacation, you will probably spend some time on the beach. With a sand-free beach mat you won’t have to worry about things getting covered in sand. The beach mat is available in sizes from small to large.
Pee-Buddy is a clever and innovative accessory for women who like to travel. You’ll never have to worry about nasty toilets or lack of toilets again when you travel.
The Pee-Buddy allows you to imitate men and urinate standing up. I know several women who use it on their trips and they all recommend it. Pee-Buddy is sold in packs of 5 and after use is simply thrown away.
With a travel scale, you won’t have to worry about being overweight when you travel, which can be expensive if they make you pay for excess baggage or check in your carry-on. There are various types of luggage scales on the market and they are all more or less the same.
It’s a cheap travel accessory that every traveler should have. A travel scale is also great to take on a trip to make sure you don’t carry any extra weight when you come home from shopping for souvenirs and other items.
Many airlines have tightened carry-on limits, so it’s a good idea to double-check your weight before you go to the airport to avoid penalty fees.
A travel adapter is one of those essential travel accessories that will make your life as a traveler much easier. There are lots of different electrical outlets around the world, but with a travel adapter you can charge your electronic devices from multiple outlets.
The travel adapter has different connectors that you can change depending on the electrical plug you need. It works in most countries of the world.
A pair of noise-cancelling headphones is a great way to block out sounds you don’t want to hear; for example, screaming children or loud engine noises. I recommend the Sony wh-1000xm3, which has fantastic sound quality and blocks noise really well.
It is a very small backpack from the Sea to Summit brand for day trips that can hold up to 20 liters despite its small size of 8 x 6 cm. It is made of durable Cordura with silicone, which also makes it water-resistant.
It’s small enough to fit on your keyring but still has enough space to fit things for day trips or grocery shopping once it’s open.
