This power bank can charge your iPhone up to 5 times. That means not having to cram next to the outlets at the airport and being able to keep your Netflix binge going.

Good quality, yet inexpensive noise-canceling headphones to silent the roar of the jet engines and unhappy babies.

      Same! I did a few weeks in Europe so I purchased the one listed so that I could charge my phone and tablet multiple times not worrying.

    I’ve been to about 13 countries and never needed a charger other than my regular one. But, that power bank sounds absolutely amazing and anyone who doesn’t have noise canceling headphones for flights is crazy!

    Tile mate is a total must have! I think it’s convenient and it’s perfect for when you’re traveling. I always make sure to have a powerbank with me, especially when I only have my phone to take pictures. It’s really helpful!

    This is a great list of must haves. I love mt portable phone charge. It can charge the phone like you said several times. I also need to invest in the tile.

    A back up charger is a HUGE must have. My hubby travels a bunch for work and it’s something he never leaves the house without.

    That power bank is a non-negotiable for me! I spent too many trips searching for an outlet or getting lost or missing out on great photos because of a dead phone battery. I love mine and always make sure to pack it!

    The adapter is a very good reminder for all of us. It’s definitely going to make your life easier especially if you’re going abroad. Love all these suggestions on your list!

    Thank you! I am the worst at remembering to bring things when I travel and often spend a fortune to pick them up! Saving this!

    My noise canceling headphones were a life saver on my last flight. They make such a difference and I’ll never travel without them. I think I have everything on this list except the Tile Mate. Definitely something I’ll have to think about.

    Noise cancelling headphones are definitely a must for me, especially if I am travelling. And you are right that they are an essential for travelers who are on a budget, especially if you don’t want to be spoken to haha!

    I am in total agreement with you! I must have the neck pillow as I always nap on the plane. The pillow makes sure you don’t get a crick in your neck!

      Same here! I didn’t use the one I had for awhile because it was too bulky and annoying to carry around. But the on this list is the perfect size and easy to carry around.

    really good ideas! It’s things that you don’t think about until you are already on your way!

    I used to underestimate the importance of having a constantly charged phone when traveling. I learned the hard way on that one– the last thing you want to do is ask the concierge desk for a charger!

    Wow, I never even thought about putting a Tile on the luggage. I’ve heard of it a bunch before, to put on keys (or even your phone!) but that’s such a great hack, especially considering how easily luggage gets misplaced.

    Thank you for the info! We are going to the Dominican Republic soon! I will have to remember my power bank.

    Loving the neck pillow combo. Sometimes when I’m traveling I have trouble sleeping because of sights and sounds. This would be a great, compact addiction to my travel bag.

    A portable charger is a MUST for me, especially when traveling. We do a lot of theme parks, and those little guys come in SO handy! I can’t say how many times I have wanted to get pictures and my phone has been dead.

    Every item on this list is a must have when we travel. I was stuck with a layover and had no power bank and it was miserable.

    I recently invested in a good power bank and it was the best thing I’ve ever bought. It can charge my phone 4+ times fully. It’s amazing!

    Great list. I have most of these but what I curious is the tracker. Yeah, it is absolutely important but I think, it also costs much.

    I never thought of adding a Bluetooth tracker to my luggage. That is such a great idea!!!!
