If you are planning on ending the lockdown with a travel adventure, then you absolutely need to check out this list of essential accessories to take with you. Travelling is different to your average holiday, the destinations, activities and amenities are can be vastly different so planning ahead of your trip will ensure you don’t make any travel faux pas leaving you red faced and looking for help halfway across the globe.
Whilst you are travelling it is likely you will be dependent on your smartphone, and for good reason, as the technology which is housed within your device can and will help you on your journey, so much so you could rename your phone your personal assistant. During this time of reliance on your device keeping your battery charged will be highly important so being sure to pack a multi-region travel adapter, which means regardless of location or plug style you can rest assured your device will be fully charged in no time. If you are travelling long distances where a power supply may not be readily available traveling with a backup power pack is another great way to keep your smartphone fully charged.
Being away from home means being away from home comforts, which for many people isn’t an issue, but for a select few like me we need our home comforts. To get around this, it’s a great idea to pack some comfortable clothes such as a hoodie and a pair of joggers, for the times when you get chance to relax. If you are travelling as part of a group you should consider having some garments made, helping keep the group together whilst travelling, and afterwards you have a physical memory which you can take on your next trip.

Filtering Water Bottle
Travelling through hot and humid locations will mean you have an increased dependence on drinking water, this usually means buying endless bottles of fresh water. This is good for your thirst, but the environmental impact of plastic bottles it is not. Taking a refillable bottle is a great way to stay hydrated and care for the planet. When choosing a water bottle for traveling, consider one with a built in filter system, meaning if you aren’t close to a sanitary water source you can fill your bottle with fresh water and not have to worry about ingesting any unwanted bacteria which could put your trip on halt, and at worst out your health in jeopardy.
First Aid Kit
Having a first aid kit in hand is an absolute must if you are travelling, as a first line of defence could mean the difference between life and death, not to put a dampener on things…. Before you piece together your kit check out the NHS guide to what you need in a first aid kit. Once you have all the basics, you can add in travel related items such as; sunscreen and after sun, bug spray and bite cream, as well as lip balm, which is also a must have when traveling.
Comfort is the key to happiness and being well rested is an absolute must when travelling. In order to get some well-deserved shut eye whilst on planes, trains, or any other means of travel you will need an inflatable travel pillow. Traditionally you would find these round the necks of aged holiday makers, but for the sake of a few pounds and a couple minutes spent inflating the rest you can achieve is worth far more than a few embarrassing plane photographs.
