The average traveler will do anything they can to make their trip more comfortable and organized. Follow along as we highlight 20 travel products that will come in handy for your next trip.

1. Electronics Organizer

Nearly everyone travels with a wide variety of electronics. Keeping them organized is difficult and invaluable. Next time you fly, make sure to bring an electronics organizer so you don’t land and have to unravel a mess of wires or find your necessary devices. They cost as little as $12-$16 and are worth every penny.

2. Trtl Travel Pillow

It’s hard to get your neck in a comfortable position when flying. The Trtl Travel Pillow makes it much easier and can stop you from landing with a sore neck. Comfortable and affordable, you can easily fit this neck pillow into your carry-on bag. It only costs $60, and that’s worth the cost of comfortably falling asleep on each flight you take.

3. Airplane Footrest

The Sleepy Ride Airplane Footrest is an essential travel product. You simply hang it on the back of the seat in front of you at the bottom, and you will enjoy comfort during your flight. They only cost $22 and should last you through countless flights.

4. Portable Charger

While airports have charging stations, you will be out of luck on the airplane. That is unless you bring a portable charger with you. The iWalk Portable Charger costs $35 and can charge iPhones, iPods, and AirPods alike.

5. Toiletry Bag

Cramming your toiletries into a checked bag is never a good idea. Instead, you should use a toiletry bag to organize your moisturizers and makeup. That way, you will know where everything is when you land, and it will be easy to access.

6. Luggage Scale

Use a luggage scale to weigh your bag at home so there are no surprises at the airport. Otherwise, you will have to pay an overweight fee that costs at least $70 or more, depending on the airline. They cost between $9 and $15.

7. AirPod Pros

Not only do AirPod Pros let you listen to music in peace, but they also cancel out the noise around you. Noise cancellation is the only way to ensure you won’t hear the loud airplane and your fellow passengers.

8. Disinfectant Wipes

You will undoubtedly encounter germs and even sick travelers when you fly. That’s why you need to bring disinfectant wipes to sanitize your luggage, carry-on, and even the tray on your flight.

9. Tablet Stand

Bring a tablet stand with you when you travel so you can get as comfortable as possible while flying. You can either set the tablet up on the tray or hang it on the back of the seat in front of you and watch your favorite show in peace.

10. White Noise Machine

A white noise machine can work wonders to help you sleep in a hotel. They especially come in handy if you travel with small children.

11. Earplugs

Earplugs are the best option if you want to sleep on a plane but listening to music distracts you. They block out the noise around you and let you sleep in peace.

12. Cardholder

Cardholders come in handy at the airport and for the rest of your vacation. Keep your ID and credit cards together in one place with a cardholder.

13. Travel Blanket

Falling asleep on an airplane is difficult, but travel blankets make it much easier. You can easily fold them up to put back in your carry-on when you land.

14. Backpack

A travel backpack can serve as a carry-on, and they help keep everything organized for you. Travel backpacks also make it easy to travel once you land.  

15. Slip-On Shoes

Slip-on shoes make it easy to get through airport security quickly. They are typically quite comfortable.

16. Collapsible Water Bottle

Bring a collapsible water bottle when you travel so you can fill it up at the airport so you don’t have to buy overpriced water.

17. Portable Vanity

A portable vanity makes it easy to do your makeup at the airport or on your flight without taking up too much space.

18. Travel Shoe Bag

Shoes take up plenty of space in luggage, but a travel shoe bag helps keep them organized and makes your life easier.

19. Compression Socks

Compression socks are necessary for long flights so you can land without having swollen ankles.

20. Garment Bag

Travel with a garment bag if you plan to bring nice clothes that you don’t want to get wrinkled.

Each of these travel products can work wonders to make your big trip easier. You don’t have to spend a fortune to find simple products that help keep you organized and comfortable on vacation!
