Air Travel Must Haves

1. Space Saver bags
These are absolute heaven! Especially if you are traveling with only a carry on. We use them for ski travel and it makes things so much easier, and gives us so much more room in our bag for all of the extra stuff we need. They are the best!
2. Headphone splitter
This is a big one if you usually have a travel companion. Thomas and I occasionally watch a movie or want to listen to the same music (normally I just want to sleep), and this headphone splitter has made doing that so much easier. You can fit up to five headphones in it, so this is perfect for watching movies with a person on either side of you!
3. Ginger Candies
AKA motion sickness saver! I am the queen of motion sickness. I get it in the car, on a plane, sitting down, standing up, laying in a bed. You name it, and I've had motion sickness in or on it. I've tried tons of different candies, like these Queasy Drops, but so far the ginger candy chews are my favorite. If you truly can't stand the taste of ginger the Queasy Drops are definitely the next best thing!
4. Your favorite chap stick
I don't care where you are going, what activities you might be doing, you need chap stick. Not only does the elevation of flying dry you out, but chances are wherever you're going isn't going to be so kind on your skin either. Save yourself the trouble and just pack a few different ones! My favorite for cold climates is Burts Bee's and my favorite everyday chap stick is the Rodan Fields chap stick!
5. These water bottles
While I love both my Yeti and my Rtic cups, they are difficult to use on the airplane. I love having a bottle that I can close up and put in the seat back or on the floor without having to worry about spilling it! These stainless steel water bottles are perfect, and they are far cheaper than the pricey S'well Bottles!
6. Poo-Pouri
Need I say more? No one likes a stinky airplane bathroom. Actually, I don't even like going to the bathroom period on an airplane, but sometimes, you gotta go!
7. RFID Card Sleeves 
Some people have no idea how these little guys can literally save you when traveling. I know I sure didn't. There are so many crazies out there trying to steal all of your info, but if you have your credit cards, traveler ID cards, or any other important card (or passport for that matter) in a RFID protected sleeve, you can save yourself the trouble of identity theft and/or having your accounts drained! There's so many great ones like these super hero ones!
8. The most amazing travel pillow ever
I think anyone who has ever flown and tried to sleep understands the importance of a good travel pillow. I have tried a lot. I mean a LOT. This is the one and only travel pillow I would ever actually recommend. It is so perfect. I don't know how they do it, but I get the most comfortable sleep with this little guy- and he isn't annoying to lug around the airport!
9. Bose QuietComfort headphones
Y'all know me. I'm frugal. I don't like to spend money on things that I know can be bought for a cheaper price in a similar product. But you guys, THERE IS NO COMPARISON with these headphones. None. Don't tell me Beats, not Sony, not any of those. These headphones are the king of all headphones. You know the noise you hear on the plane? The general cabin noise? The noise you can hear even behind all of the other leading headphones? There is none of that with these headphones. Not one single bit. It is pure magic. These are worth every single penny!
What is something you just can't live without when you are traveling on an airplane?

  1. This is so perfect for my life right now! I am headed to Puerto Rico at the end of the month but I hate flying! These look so helpful for that!

  2. Such great tips! I'm doing a cruise in April and the space saver bags sound like a great idea to be able to fit everything in a carry on rather than having a million bags to lug around!! Also I need to look into the RFID sleeves, such cute designs too and such a low price point!

  3. I always need a lip balm and a good scarf that can double as a blanket!

  4. I wish I had read this post before I traveled to London this summer! My current neck pillow makes my neck so stiff when I wake up and I've been searching for a new one ever since. I always like to bring Colgate Wisps in my carryon so I can brush my teeth on the plane without the hassle of a full toothbrush / toothpaste!

  5. I always make sure to have headphones when I am flying!

  6. I seriously had no idea that ginger candies were good for motion sickness until last year when we took a road trip and my cousin bought a HUGE bag lol.

  7. Between 2011 - 2015 I had to fly through FRA airport every few months and I ALWAYS stopped for some ginger tea before every flight! It seriously works wonders!

  8. Thanks for sharing these products! Will definitely have to pick up some ginger candies next time I fly.

  9. Poo-perie... I'M DEAD. But so smart! haha, Such great tips, I can't fly without headphones, they're a must for me!

  10. those chapsticks are lifesavers! I legit have three in my bag right now haha

  11. Burt's Bees chapsticks are definitely a must for me!

  12. My iPad is pretty essential to me when I fly as well as aloe socks. I didn't realize you could still fly with personal water bottles.

  13. The RFID card sleeves are so important! We use them, I love it! Also we always bring an empty water bottle, it makes it so much easier to feel better after the flight!

  14. Great tips and very easy to understand. This will definitely be very useful for me when I get a chance to start my blog

  18. Indeed, the company should be able to create, design, host, and eventually develop a travel portal for you with innovative solutions by incorporating APIs in the entire process.

  19. Do the TSA restrictions on liquids allow you to bring those water bottles?

    1. There are no restrictions on water bottles, as long as they are empty when you bring them through security! Thankfully, there are tons of water fountains in the airport!

  20. I just ordered that neck pillow to take on my trip to London next month... Can't wait to try it out!

  21. Travelling can be a massive expense for businesses, but the opportunities that can be found from attending business events make travelling a necessity. Malysian Visa

  23. This one is good. keep up the good work!.. Jeftine avio karte
