If you need to travel to other places the first few things that will most likely pop up from your mind would be to book a flight ticket and a hotel room. But, of course, even an overnight trip may prove to be so stressful if you forget some essentials. So check out the following list of travel essentials every lady must not forget.

Water Bottle

Staying hydrated is very important all throughout the duration of your flight. One way to ensure you have enough water is to grab an ice water when you’re past security checks then pour it into your water bottle. If you want to save space in your bag, you may also opt for collapsible water bottle containers.

Travel Pillow

For busy people, being inside the plane is one good chance for them to sleep without being disturbed by other people or work-related issues. This is why it is best to bring travel pillow so your neck won’t hurt. There are that very common U-shaped travel pillows but you can also opt for those that look like a fleece scarf but with a built-in support system to ensure a relaxing sleep while on the plane.

Tote Bags

Tote bags are perhaps one of the most versatile bags. But when it comes to traveling, don’t just settle for the standard canvas tote bag. Otherwise, you may find yourself stuck in the queue of security checks because you are still rummaging through your bag for your boarding pass or your chapstick. Look for a tote bag that has a full zipper closure to ensure everything is secured inside your bag and you won’t be at risk of picking up your belongings on the floor when your bag suddenly falls upside down or when you’re stowing it under the airplane seat.


Pens are very important when traveling. Using public pens when filling out a form exposes you to a lot of bacteria. This is why you need to have your own pen especially when you need to fill out customs forms. While in the plane, you also need a pen for your past time activity such as crossword and Sudoku puzzles. Whether it’s a retractable pen or any other ordinary pen, it does not matter for as long as it has an ink!

Travel Wrap

Unfortunately, airplane cabins do not come with a weather or temperature forecast. But with a travel wrap which can be used as a scarf, you will always be prepared no matter what the weather is. If it gets too cold, a travel wrap will prove to be your best friend. Not to mention the fact that travel wraps also serve as a fashion accessory as it can also fit any outfit that you wear during travel. So, before you head to the airport, make sure you don’t forget to toss a travel wrap into your bag.

Compression Socks

This is so important especially if you are expecting a flight that lasts for several hours. Compression socks help prevent your feet from sleeping, that is, your blood stops from circulating. If this happens all too often and for several hours, you become at risk for serious symptoms. Therefore, always see to it that you have compression stockings ready in your carry-on bag each time you travel.

These are just a few of the many travel essentials that you should not forget. Keep these things in mind for a less stressful travel time.
