Travel Essentials You Need To Bring For Your Getaway Trips

Travel has come back in full swing. With the warm weather and the COVID-19 cases dwindling down, it seems as if it’s a perfect time to book flights to a new destination. However, before you throw your bikinis in your luggage and jump on the next flight, you need to remain prepared. There are certain products you need to bring with you to remain safe and comfortable. 

So, here are a few travel essentials you need to bring for your getaway trips:

A reliable carry-on travel backpack

If your flight is two hours or twelve hours, a reliable carry-on travel backpack for your personal items and necessary belongings. If you can fit all your things into the backpack, you can save money by not checking your luggage. You can save time by checking in your luggage and avoiding the luggage carousel after your flight. These backpacks should have plenty of room for your travel necessities, including a padded laptop pocket and organizers for holding chargers, tablets, and notebooks in place. 

High-quality luggage 

Various brands can help you judge durability, ease of use, and overall quality at their price point. This should make a great impression due to its high-quality construction and supreme maneuverability. Sometimes, you won’t even need to upgrade your old suitcase if it’s still working perfectly. Recently, I brought my mom’s 27-year-old Delsey luggage with me on a trip to Bohol. It still worked perfectly and didn’t give up on careless ole me. 

Protective and comfortable face masks

Despite cases dwindling down, the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing. So, experts still recommend wearing them every single time we get out of the house. However, cloth masks aren’t as effective at protecting from the coronavirus. Instead, go for a medical-grade mask like an N95 or KN95 which filters up to 95% of particles in the air. 

Disinfecting wipes

Although COVID-19 doesn’t predominantly spread through contact with surfaces, these past few years have made us a bit more conscious when it comes to cleanliness. Experts suggest using disinfectant wipes to sanitize your seat, tray table, armrests, seatbelt, and surfaces in restrooms while you travel. 

A supply of hand sanitizer or mini alcohol

It’s obvious why you need these. As mentioned, COVID-19 is still ongoing. Travel-sized hand sanitizers or mini alcohols will forever be a staple in travel bags to keep germs at bay. Airport security allows one liquid sanitizer container in carry-on bags. You can buy a mini spray bottle and refill it with your trusty brand of alcohol.

Noise-canceling headphones

These are an absolute necessity and one of the things that I regretted not bringing with me during my recent trip. These provide excellent audio quality, great comfort, and top-notch active noise-canceling. Aside from that, it will drown out any noise that you might hear during the plane ride whether it’s a crying infant or passengers just chattering about. 

Reusable water bottle

You don’t need to line up for overpriced water bottles in the airport. Just bring in a reusable airport to use along the journey. However, make sure it’s empty when you bring it through airport security. A good reusable water bottle helps your water extra cold or hot all day long. Personally, I use a 40oz insulated stainless steel water bottle with a silicone boot from Kool PH. Conveniently, it has a handle that allows me to bring it with me wherever I go.

A portable charger

Nothing is worse than opening an electronic when traveling and finding out it’s actually dead. Especially, if you’re like me who needs to document everything with my phone, check important information, and stay in contact with my friends and family. So, to prevent this scenario, I recommend keeping a portable power bank on you. Remember to charge it up before loving for the airport or departing your hotel. Personally, I use a Romoss Sense 6 20000mAh dual output power bank. 

So far, those are the necessities I think you should bring with you when it comes to traveling. If we missed a few, let us know in the comments!
