Everyone loves a good trip, an adventure to see new places and discover new things! Planning the perfect trip can also take a lot of time. After all, no one wants to be stranded in a new place without the necessary requirements and amenities. Therefore, I believe having key travel accessories and amenities can help make the perfect trip for anyone. Travelling can be fun as well as completely surprising at times, but by being prepared with the right accessories and survival kit you won’t have to stress about the surprises.
Below are my top accessories and amenities that I recommend you take with you on all your trips, both business and leisure.
An Overnight Bag that You Keep with You
When flying it is always a good idea to have carry on luggage that you can pack overnight clothes in just in case you get to the other side and your checked in luggage hasn’t made it to your destination. A simple weekend bag that you can put on your back if you need your hands free (especially useful if you have kids that you are travelling with) is perfect for this.
Whether you are travelling by air or doing a long car or train trip, having a neck pillow is a must so that you can get some rest in along the way. Try find an inflatable one that is made from a soft fabric so that you can store it easily in your carry-on luggage or handbag.
A travel wallet is super useful to store your passport, itinerary and other travel docs that you may need while on your trip. I like using a travel wallet that can take all these and double up as a purse/ wallet so that I don’t have to carry both while travelling.
First Aid Kit
You just never know when you going to need a plaster, or something to help your tummy after trying some adventurous food. It is always best to have a small cosmetic bag with some key items in it in case of emergency. I always keep plasters, headache pills, Imodium, antibacterial ointment, an antihistamine and some tissues in mine.
It is always a good idea to carry a fully charge power bank and your charging cables with you. That way you never need to worry about getting caught in the perfect moment without a charged camera or phone and wishing you could have captured the moment.
Holidays and trips should always be fun and enjoyable if you are prepared and have all the necessities nearby so that you can enjoy the real adventure. Buying the right kind of travel luggage and accessories is important so that you can keep your things safe while traveling.
