My 10 "Can't Go Without" Travel Items

While traveling can be exciting, it can also be very stressful. There are so many factors that we can never control, and sometimes, life just happens. After five years of being on the go, even I've experienced and have had some not-so-great moments. Luckily, I found some handy products that have made traveling much easier.

Some of these items I've been using for years, and some I've just become accustomed to. Either way, they have made my list of the top 10 things I must travel with, and I can't wait to share them with you!

(Listed in no particular order!)


One of my favorite items is Activated Charcoal pills, mainly because my stomach isn't accustomed to every culture's food and cooking habits. I've gotten sick in dozens of countries, and luckily, these pills have saved the day. I've even told my friends about them, and they've said these worked too! - $8.23

I've had this Wireless Portable Charger for about two years and have taken it on many trips. When I tell you, it's incredible, Oh... I mean it. It lasts me a very long time before I have to recharge it, and I love how it shows you what percentage it is at before it dies. The only con is that it is a little bigger than other portable chargers, but it literally lasts for about five days, and that's with using it every day! Best purchase yet. - $34.95

While having a first aid kit might sound like a no-brainer, Many people forget you can get sick or hurt on trips. You also must keep up with staying healthy and taking whatever vitamins you need. I usually carry a little bag that has a bunch of first-aid kit items in it, or you can buy one. In addition to the essential items, I always carry a liquid IV with me; it helps me so much! I can get sick pretty quickly, and I find that when my body is exhausted or I'm pushing it a little too much, I need one of these bad boys and feel so much better. - $22

Also, to help stay organized, I like to use a Holli Travel pill organizer that has multiple slots for vitamins but is still very compact. It keeps everything organized and easy to get to! - $5

Bags get lost, so I highly recommend giving yourself peace of mind and getting Air Tags... They are on the pricier side of things, but you won't regret it. You can even put it on smaller items like your keys, wallet, or phone. Overall, they are a life savior. - $84.99

I bought this neck pillow last year, and I was very hesitant about the price! But, honestly, it is a game-changer! It keeps your head from tilting and falling too much on the plane and ultimately helps your neck not be in pain after long flights. I also love that it doesn't take up too much space, and you can clip it onto your bags! All I am saying is this is worth the extra dollars. - $64.99

I'm a huge Beis advocate; I absolutely love this brand, have many of their items, and think all their items are great. With that, my favorite so far is the sports sling bag, which is a small crossbody bag. I've traveled to many places with this bag, and I especially love it when I am in the airport or walking around cities. It is really small, but has so many compartments and carries so much. plus, there is a water bottle holder that makes it convenient to carry canisters - $58

Since I've started traveling, I've been using compression socks; they are crucial for blood circulation since you can't stand and walk as much on planes. They also decrease swelling in your legs and help prevent varicose veins. Overall, wearing compression socks will help you walk and move better after a flight and keep your blood flowing properly! - $19.99

I recently bought this and have used it on a few trips. It makes traveling and enjoying your flight so much better. I find that my neck always hurts from looking down at my screen, and with this, I don't have to try to prop my phone up to watch my movies, and my neck no longer hurts from looking down all the time. - $12.29

I recently went on a trip to Cartagena, and wow, I never thought I needed a towel more in my life. Even the hotel we stayed at had limited towels, and Airbnb towels weren't that clean. In addition, you will need a towel for your excursions because none are usually provided. This wasn't the only time a towel like this would've been helpful, but I have learned always to carry one, and they even come in handy at the beach too! - $19.99

A huge water canister can get in the way when you're trying to travel light. So, having a collapsible water bottle like this will help save space, and it's also easy to carry around and keep in small bags. - $8.99


Those are the top 10 things I can't go without while traveling; I hope you found this helpful! Feel free to comment if you have any other "can't go without items" you like. I am always looking for other ideas on what to bring!
