First-class airfare can cost as much as three times more than economy plane tickets, and even more than that for international flights. And even if money is no issue for you, first-class seats are still very limited. If you made a spur-of-the-moment decision to travel, you probably do not even have a chance to snag a first-class seat. In cases such as these, it is imperative to do what you can to make your ride in coach a first-class experience.

Airplane Footrest

Economy class has the hardest and least comfortable seats on the plane. However, you may still feel like you are sleeping in a hammock with this airplane footrest. I have brought it with me on several flights. And I no longer experience stiffness, leg swelling and lower back pain. It is made of thick memory foam to make you feel as you are sitting in a recliner with your feet raised. To use it, you may simply hang it on the arms of the tray table and adjust the straps until it reaches the perfect length. It can be packed in the carry-on luggage. A handy drawstring carry bag is included in the package. The Sleepy Ride Airplane Footrest is designed for people that are 5’8″ or shorter.

Over the years, I have tried a lot of inflight pillows including inflatable airplane cushions and foam airplane pillows. But I had not found one that I was completely satisfied with until my mom got me the Trtl Pillow. The strengthened ribs hold the head and neck in a better ergonomic position than all other neck pillows. It is made of super soft fleece and foam to provide optimum warmth and prevent a stiff neck. The Trtl pillow creates a turtle neck brace effect because it is designed to fit snugly between our face and shoulder with the cushioned support provided by the strengthening ribs. It is portable, machine washable and lightweight. Moreover, it is available in various colors: black, red, grey, coral, aqua pop, sea camo, and zebra. We can either attach it to the handle of our backpack or outside of our luggage.

Bluetooth Sleeping Eye Mask

Before going to bed, I have to close all the curtains and turn my speaker on. I fall asleep faster and sleep longer with the music on. This habit makes things difficult when it comes to air travel. I have to bring both an eye mask and a headphone with me. Lavince Travel Sleeping Headphone makes my life much easier. I do not have to worry about getting tangled in headphones while I’m sleeping. This sleep mask blocks all the light and noise. It can connect with our cellphone or tablet through Bluetooth to play music and take calls. The sound quality is superior. With less than 2.5 hours’ charging, the Bluetooth can work for 15 hours continuously. It is ideal for side sleepers because the thickness of this eye mask is only one-third of a normal speaker. Remember to take out the Bluetooth module before washing the eye mask.

Before reading the article below, think about what you usually bring with you when traveling. Clothes, computers, chargers, that sort of thing. It gets messy and you can easily lose your stuff. Keeping things organized can simplify your life before and during the trip, not to mention ultimately save you time rifling through your belongings. Trust me, this can lead to a much more relaxing and enjoyable journey.

Small Travel Cable Organizer Bag

Regardless of the length of my journey, I always bring earphones, a charging cable, my laptop charger and adapter and a USB flash along for the ride. If I am traveling anywhere overseas, I may even pack a world travel adapter kit. Before I picked up this small travel cable organizer bag, these electronic accessories were scattered in my bag. This electronics accessories organizer save me time dealing with my cables and other electronic accessories when I am on holiday. It is made of water repellent polyester. The padded foam inside better protects the accessories. The interior consists of a mesh pocket with zipper to store a portable hard drive, 5 mesh pouches with elastic loops to store USB drives, 7 small elastic loops to organize short cables or earphones, 2 large elastic loops to store long cable, an SD card pouch and a pocket for more items.

Tri-fold Document Organizer Holder

If your wallet is not large enough to hold your passport, cash, airplane ticket, credit cards, and your phone, you should probably consider getting this Tri-fold Document Organizer Holder. It not only serves as a protective case for your passport but also organizes all your important travel documents. The holder includes a passport pouch, 3 card slots, 2 ticket compartment, a zip pocket, an ID pouch, a SIM card slot, and a pen holder. Bringing a pen with you can avoid some embarrassing moments. Some countries require foreign visitors to fill out an arrival card. Instead of asking people sitting next to you or the flight attendants to borrow a pen, it’s better to have one in advance. There are 36 colors available.

Travel Cosmetic Bag

Do you have too much makeup to pack? When searching for a cosmetic bag, you do not want one of the ones with a soft partition. Relavel Makeup Travel Bag is the best cosmetic organizer I have ever owned. This toiletry bag is waterproof and shockproof. The interiors are anti-wear and spill-proof. It also features a two-way zipper, several compartments, and makeup brushes slots. The 7 compartments are adjustable. You can adjust as needed. The elastic brush groove can hold up to 15 brushes and keep them neat and tidy. There is a zipper compartment for the palette as well.

Unless you are one of those “fly light” travelers who only packs a carry-on, you have had the unpleasant experience of waiting to pick up your luggage in the baggage claim area at your destination.

You know how annoying it is to keep your eyes peeled in search of your belongings, careful to observe every bag lest you end up missing your own. And comes as no surprise when your luggage appears dented on account of baggage handlers’ carelessness. One of the best ways to prevent these tragedies is to choose the right luggage. Samsonite is a sturdy and reliable brand that I have been trusted for years. The luggage always remains intact regardless of how long a trip is.

Samsonite Stryde Carry-On Glider Hardside Suitcase

As a world traveler who has traveled to more than 10 countries and 50 cities, I strongly suggest that everyone should buy carry-on luggage. Good carry-on luggage, in my opinion, is hard-sided, has double-wheels and multiple pockets, is expandable, and can be wiped clean. Samsonite Stryde Carry-On Glider Hardside Suitcase is the best suitcase I have ever bought because it has all the features above. It has lining pockets, breathable mesh pockets, wet-pack pockets, a vertical mesh pocket, and double cross-straps. This is ideal for people with large and broad hands because it features extra-wide pull handle with multiple grips. The suitcase only weighs 7.2lbs. No keys are required. The built-in, side-mounted TSA lock ensures your belongings arrive safely at your destination.

Samsonite Freeform 28″ Expandable Hardside Spinner Suitcase

Most of the international flights allow one or two free checked baggage pieces. Samsonite Freeform 28″ Expandable Hardside Spinner Suitcase is extremely light and visually impactful. Its four multi-directional double spinner wheels add no weight to your arm and shoulder. The ultra-strong shells withstand baggage handlers’ damage. One of the reasons that I highly recommend this suitcase is its colors. It’s available in pink, black, white, sage green, tangerine, Merlot, and navy. Some colors such as pink are not offered by other brands or other models, which means you will never miss your suitcase when waiting at the baggage claim. The built-in ID tag also distinguishes your suitcase from others.

In order to better protect the luggage, you may also need a luggage cover. Samsonite Printed Luggage Covers is made with durable polyester and spandex blend. To use it, you may simply stretch it until it fits over the suitcase. It is easy to clean. I usually either wipe it or throw it to the washer. There are tons of styles and colors available.

YAMIU Packing Cubes Set

When I pack for any trip, I have to separate my stuff from each bag to keep the suitcase clean and tidy. Packing cubes are the must-have items for all my trips. They help me to divide clothes into sections and keep wet or dirty stuff apart on the journey. The YAMIU Packing Cubes Set includes 7 pieces: 4 packing cubes, 1 shoe bag, 1 toiletry bag and 1 TSA-approved toiletry bag. The sizes are very appropriate and can easily fit in one suitcase. None of them is too big or too small. The fabric is water-resistant and lightweight and does not add any significant weight to the suitcase. With the perspective grids, I find stuff more easily. The high-quality zippers make zipping up the bags more smoothly. However, they can also be used for daily storage. I always use them to keep my stuff more organized. Moreover, YAMIU provides a lifetime warranty.

Chestnut Space Saver Storage Bags

As a world traveler, I always fly internationally at least four times a year. Usually, these are long trips that last approximately a month. More clothes need to be packed compared to national trips. In these cases, space saver storage bags are irreplaceable. These bags reduce the storage space by up to 75 percent. They also prevent odors, bugs, moths, dirt, and dampness. These bags are reusable and work totally without using a vacuum or pump. All I need to do is roll the bag starting from the zipper to push the air out through the valves on the other side of the bag. The package comes with 8 transparent roll-up travel storage bags with green double-zip seals: 4 large sizes and 4 medium sizes. When the season changes, I also use them to store seasonal clothing, sheets and pillowcases to save more space in my apartment.

Everlasting Comfort Neck Pillow with Ultra Plush Velour Cover, Sleep Mask, and Earplugs

No neck pillow for a long distance trip? No way! A travel pillow is an awesome edition of our travel gear. I would never be able to take a nap without a neck pillow. Everlasting Comfort is known as one of the world’s leading memory foam manufacturers. Unlike other U-shaped neck pillows, Everlasting Comfort pure memory foam neck pillows support neck tilt from side to side because they feature orthopedic raised lobes. The straps are adjustable and provide a secure and comfortable fit around our necks. The cover is machine washable. To take out the cover, we can simply unzip the zipper on the back of the pillow. A noticeable feature is its cell phone pocket. It fits all cell phones and iPods. We may also use it to store other accessories such as earplugs and eye mask. Everlasting Comfort’s Neck Pillow Travel Kit includes a neck pillow, adjustable sleep mask, memory foam earplugs and a traveler bag.
