Five Must-Have Travel Accessories

While the bulk of your packing list may change depending on where you’re going and how long you’ll be gone, there are some travel accessories that you should take with you every time. To have a safe and stress-free vacation, make sure you pack these five accessories.

1. Travel Organizer

Keep your cash, cards, and documents all together and safe with a travel organizer. Travel organizers are compact and sturdy with lots of space and compartments. And more than just keeping your things neat and tidy, a travel organizer can also prevent hacking and theft. Many organizers have casings that block RFID signals, so you can travel with more confidence knowing that people can’t access your cards or other data.

2. Portable Charger

If you like to travel with your tech, then a portable charger is an essential accessory to have on hand. Despite their small size, portable chargers are a big source of power. As long as you charge it up before leaving, a portable charger can recharge all your devices when you’re on the road.

3. Neck Pillow

It's easy to get cramped up and stiff during long stretches in a car or plane. That's why your packing list should include a neck pillow. With its ergonomic shape and soft filling, a neck pillow will help you relieve tension in your neck and shoulders and make your travels a lot cozier.

4. Wipes

Traveling is fun but it can get grimy. Hand wipes are great for quickly cleaning up on the go and they’re easy to throw out when you’re done with them. You can also get sanitizing wipes which will help keep you safe from harmful bacteria and viruses. Since a pack of wipes is so small and lightweight, you can always keep one with you when you’re out and about.

5. First Aid Kit

No matter where you’re going, it’s always smart to pack a first aid kit. A good first aid kit doesn’t have to take up a lot of space and can be customized to include anything that you think you might need in the event of an emergency. Gauze pads, antibacterial ointment, Band-Aids, and Tylenol are all good supplies that you can keep in your first aid kit.

You can’t go wrong with these must-have travel accessories. With them in your bag, you’re sure to have a safer and more comfortable vacation.
