Small travel accessories that will elevate your adventure

Posted on 28 March 2024 By Savanna Douglas

While travel accessories certainly aren’t a must, they do make the journey smoother, and elevate your experience while you’re en route to your destination. If you’ve got a flight booked soon, these are the luxury items that will make your travels a breeze – in comfort and efficiency. 


An airtag is a great way to keep track of your belongings when they aren’t with you. Slip one into your checked luggage and check on your items at any time using your phone’s GPS. If you’ve got an Apple device, consider investing in an Apple Airtag. If you’ve got a Samsung, look at the Samsung Galaxy Smart Tag.

Airtags are fantastic outside of travel, too – attach one to your keys, your wallet, your backpack or even your car to easily keep track of things.

Neck pillow

If you’re on a long-haul flight and not travelling in first class, sleeping can be uncomfortable, and a neck pillow may just be the saving grace you need to catch a few zzz’s. Additionally, if you’ve got sleep apnea or you snore, a neck pillow can assist in your sleeping position, and prevent you from broadcasting your snores to the rest of the passengers on board.

Silk sleep mask

Another item to aid in your sleep is a quality silk sleep mask. If you tend to struggle to fall asleep when there is light or movement around you, a sleep mask will add the layer of privacy you need to become restful. When it’s dark, your brain will catch a signal that it’s time for sleep and you may doze off quicker, if you’re feeling restless.

Passport cover

You may think that a passport cover isn’t functional, but it is.

It can help disguise your passport, making it less obvious to those who may be seeking the opportunity to snatch it away. Additionally, having a distinct cover will help you spot your passport quickly, so you won’t need to rummage through your bags in the hopes of finding it fast. Plus, a cover adds extra protection from your passport being damaged.

Noise cancelling headphones

When there’s an unruly child or newborn baby seated somewhere nearby on the flight, you will thank yourself for the pair of earbuds or headphones that you decided to pack into your carry-on. As frustrating as it is, parents often have little control over how their kids will behave on flights. Save yourself the headache by investing in a pair of noise-cancelling headphones to see you through the journey without any disturbances.
