Thanks to liquid related security measures, today we have to juggle numerous tiny bottles and tubes, necessitating a reconsideration of toiletry kits. From size to safety, the eBags kit balances many needs and is a solid addition to your travel assembly.

First, the size and space in the design of the eBags kit is phenomenal. The flat form of it allows the traveler to place it easily in their luggage or tuck it away in a carry on. It is expandable, making it useful for different trip lengths or for those who always need to bring extra items. The kit also contains a pocket with plastic lining, which minimizes the occasional unfortunate liquid spill. Finally, a lifetime warranty guarantees that the user won’t regret their purchase.

2. Anker Astro E3 Portable Charger

Traveling is unpredictable and today we rely on our phones regularly. This is why we tend to keep an close eye on our device’s battery life. There are few worse feelings than needing to pull up your flight information or directions and seeing that your once buzzing life-saver has become useless dead weight. This is why bringing a portable charger on a trip is incredibly important, and there are few of these more qualified than the Anker Astro E3.

There are three important qualities in a portable charger: size, time to charge, and charge capacity. The Anker Astro E3 charger is small and weighs in at just over half a pound. It also charges quickly compared to other brands, coming in at six hours. Once charged, it has three USB outputs that can be used multiple times to power up any type of smartphone.

Everyone has moments while traveling that you need a moment of peace and quiet. If you are a traveling professional, you know how difficult it is to get work done while at an airport or on a plane or train. Constant noise and interruptions quickly downgrades productivity and frustrates those trying to relax. Quality noise cancelling headphones are the best solution, and Bose QC20 is consistently ranked as the best option.

You may be reluctant to use noise cancelling headphones because you imagine a large bulky set of over ear headphones that would need to be stored, taking up valuable room. The Bose QC20 is an inner ear set of headphones that are unobtrusive and effective, weighing only 1.5 ounces. This means that they are a viable option for those making frequent short flights as well as those who are in it for the long haul.

4. Travelrest Ultimate Memory Foam Travel Pillow

If travelers have a busy schedule or if the trip will be long, travel pillows can minimize discomfort and enable a few hours of rest in between bouts of hurried activity. The key, as always, is efficiency. The Travelrest pillow provides this by packing down to a small roll that takes up minimal space, and yet providing comfortable support around your neck and shoulders. Additionally, the cover can be removed and washed between uses.

5. Bonazza Universal World Travel Power Adaptor

Hair dryers, straighteners, phone and computer wall chargers are all devices that usually require an electrical outlet. This can be frustrating when we travel as outlets may vary by country. An experienced traveler will know this and want to be prepared. Fortunately, the Bonazza power adaptor will prepare a user for almost every outlet. The product is also compactly designed, making it an easy addition to a traveler’s baggage. Further, it includes two USB ports in its design, allow for the charge of multiple devices.

These top travel accessories will prepare a traveler for a wide variety of circumstances and help them to avoid common pitfalls. There are any number of difficulties that will be encountered when traveling regularly, but with research and adequate preparation, a traveler can enjoy themselves throughout. These accessories will result in a smoother trip and a calmer, more prepared sightseer.
