This week, we asked our expert travel advisors what they “must have” in their carry-on bags when they travel. And trust me, their answers did not disappoint!
So, what is worth packing in your carry-on, and what should you skip and leave behind?
This came as no surprise. There is nothing worse than getting the “20% battery left” notification as you're in the middle of getting the best shot. This portable charger has three built-in cables to charge different devices at the same time. The ultra-thin and lightweight design make this an easy fit in any carry-on bag!
53% of travelers read in the airport or on their flight. Don’t waste extra space by packing two or three books to read during your travels. Instead, invest in one device where you can download multiple books without taking up extra space in your carry-on!
Have you tried to watch in-flight entertainment on the plane when you realize you forgot to pack compatible headphones? Well, forget about packing those wired headphones and pack this wireless transmitter instead! Connect your wireless earbuds, Air pods, and more, and watch away.
These are designed for sleep! Unlike headphones, they do not stream music; instead, they deliver noise-masking sounds to block out distractions and keep you calm and relaxed! Making sleeping on long flights easy!
If you are traveling internationally, this is a must-have! This travel adapter covers over 200 countries and is compatible with most USB devices!
Health & Personal Care:
An inflatable travel pillow was a popular “must-have” among our advisors. These inflatable travel pillows are easy to inflate before boarding and only takes 10 seconds to deflate once you have landed.
