Traveling is becoming more of a hobby than a luxury. But one thing that seems to always come with traveling, is unpredicted stress – you just never seem to see it coming. With this being a common knowledge, more and more brands are creating cool products to help enhance your traveling experience. Most of these products are things you may have never thought about owning or using. So if you’re one who find themselves in a different city every other week, or maybe you take one big trip a year, here are some must-have accessories that every traveler needs.

Passport Cases/Holders

It may sound weird to put a case on a passport, but it’s one of the most important documents you need when traveling. So it’s only right to protect it! Many passport cases and holders come with multiple slots to hold IDs and boarding passes – to help you be more organized. Think of it as the guardian of all your travel documents. Some options check out are this Famavala RFID Blocking Case Cover Holder for $9 and this Saks Fifth Avenue Leather Passport Holder for $25.

Luggage Scales

For those of you who check-in a bag, you know of the importance of keeping your suitcase within the weight limit. But for some reason it always manages to be overweight, especially when you’re traveling home. That’s why it’s always good to have a scale with you. And no, I don’t mean a large scale you stand on to weigh yourself (though I’ve found it to be just as affective), I mean a compact scale you can easily carry in your bag! Our top three picks are this Travel Smart Compact Luggage Scale for $20, GripScale Digital Luggage Scale for $25, and this Tarriss Jetsetter Digital Luggage Scale for $15.

 

Travel Pillows

If there is anything everyone tries to do when traveling, it’s sleep! But sometimes sleeping can get weird and uncomfortable, so that’s why it’s important to have a travel pillow. Also so you don’t wake up with a serious neck injury. A recommended pillow is the Woollip Pillow for $49. This inflatable compact pillow provides full upper body support so you’re not forced to sleep on the tray table. You can also get your classic around the neck pillow, it’s super simple not too fancy, but it gets the job done! You can find all kinds of travel pillows at Target, Amazon, or Macy’s starting at $10.

Knock Knock Pack This! Pad

One of the most stressful parts of traveling is packing. It seems like no matter how many times you may go over your bag, you may always seem to forget something. Well that’s why this Knock Knock Pack This! Pad exists! It’s overly thorough and extensive to help make sure you don’t forget a thing. You will never feel disorganized again when packing. You can purchase it for $5 on Amazon.

Carry-On Bag

Carry-on bags are probably the most important part of traveling. Only because if anything were to happen to your checked-on luggage you would only be left with what you carried on. So don’t settle for a tiny backpack or your purse, make sure you have a durable spacious bag! Some options to look at are the Hershel Dawson Backpacks starting from $65, it has a good number of compartments plus its spacious. Next are Duffel Bags, We have already brought you the Best Duffel Bags of 2017, which are great for when you don’t want to bring an entire suitcase or if you need some extra storage.
