The Must-Haves in Your Travel Accessories


If you are a music lover, this accessory seems like a no-brainer. But it is needed even otherwise. A pair of noise-cancelling headphones not only helps you listen to your favorite music on your travel it also blocks unwanted noise. You can get through the noise of screaming babies, talkative travellers, and even engine noises. Ensure that the headphones are fully charged so that they do not die in the middle of your journey.


Pack your favourite books in your favourite e-reader library. It is perfect even if you have to read in crowded places or in not so well-lit places too. Moreover, these have long battery life and hence there is no need to carry a charger. But ensure you charge it fully before you start the travel. If you are a fan of the paper version then you can carry a book too, but may have to satisfy yourself with 1 or 2 books as there may not be room in your backpack.

Travel Neck Pillow:

If you are a frequent traveller then you will know the importance of a travel pillow. Not having a travel pillow means waking up with a sore back and neck and a headache. A travel pillow ensures that your sleep is more comfortable as it provides optimal head, neck and chin support. It also has a flexible design so it folded into any way you want. A WakeFit travel neck pillow can be your best friend and companion when you have delays as you can take a nap wherever you want.

Eye Mask:

The eye masks are a great companion to people who cannot sleep when the light is on. Travel is a good way to catch up on some sleep and get the much-needed rest and with an eye mask on which blocks the light, you can sleep on a cramped seat, or in a hotel bed just fine. While purchasing an eye mask look for a product where the mask stays secure and it does not apply pressure on the eye.

Back Support Cushions:

When you are travelling, chances are that you will spend most of the time in a sitting position. The cushion you are sitting on may not provide the best back support and that can leave you with an achy back and legs. A compact lumbar support cushion will provide the support you need for the right posture and to prevent muscle fatigue. Memory foam back support pillow is especially useful as it conforms to the natural curvature of the spine and provides support to the back.

Other Things to Carry:

· Scarves, socks and other warm clothing
· Snacks
· Water bottle
· External phone charger
· Deo spray and other cosmetics
· Snacks
· Sanitizing wet wipes
· Video games or other such
· Reusable bags

Travel can be done for work or for pleasure and the things most people pack are for in-between travel. By overlooking the fact that they need to carry certain accessories they end up feeling tired and miserable. They start to dread travelling but instead of that, packing the above-mentioned travel accessories will ensure a comfortable journey.
