Accessories You Mustn’t Travel Without
Regardless of your experience as a traveler, you’ll always want to have a safe and comfortable trip each time. And it’s great that this easy to achieve if you only have the right travel accessories. While these things may be small in size, they are surely big in terms of function.
The following are some of the most important travel accessories you should never leave without:
First Aid Bag
Next to your main luggage, this is the probably the most important accessory you must carry with you when travelling. After all, you can never tell what’s going to happen. A first aid kit should at least include scissors, gauze pads, bandage, adhesive tape, antiseptic wash and an instant cold pack.
Hygiene is always important, but it becomes even more so for travelers (because you’ll never know what germs are there!); thus, make sure you carry a toiletry bag with you. How big your toiletry bag should be depends on what you put in it and how long your trip will be. You’d like the bag to have a hook on it so that it’s easy to hang it in the bathroom in your hotel room. Good news is, most toiletry bags today have fashionable designs so you can carry them around in style.
You might need a travel adaptor if you’re traveling abroad. Since different countries have different voltage supplies, a travel adaptor may just prove handy before you can use any electric gadget or device. Using this adaptor, however, you will not need a transformer or converter anymore.
A travel wallet is yet another accessory you mustn’t go on a long trip without. Unlike a regular wallet, though, a travel wallet will be larger and can accommodate a lot more things you may need to put inside, such as your credit cards, IDs, your passport and other important documents. The more you can insert into this wallet, the better for you.
If you’re going on an extended trip, a neck pillow will come in handy for your head and neck as you sleep on a seat. Fortunately, you have lots of options of travel pillows, like down pillows, inflatables, compressibles, etc. A compressible pillow, while bulkier and more space-consuming, is definitely more comfortable.
Ear Plugs and Towel
If you must sleep during a flight, in a big city or in a new time zone, ear plugs will serve you great. And finally, if you’re staying in a hostel, going camping or just roughing it, you should bring a travel towel that dries fast and rolls well into compact breathable mesh bag.
