14 Carry On Travel Essentials

July 20, 2018




Packing carry on luggage is a tedious task. As the carry contain limited space but we have a lot of things to pack. During my initial trips, I faced a lot of trouble in deciding what to pack and what to leave. Although after few journeys only ,I figured out the most essential items to carry in a carry on baggage.


Carry on luggage makes your travel experience easier. There’s no way the airline can lose your luggage, if you haven’t checked anything. You won’t get weighed down by heavy bags if you limit yourself to carry-on only. And the checked bags costs so much, With only a carry on you won’t have to deal with expensive checked bag fees.


Mentioned below are the list of things which one must carry in order to have a comfortable journey throughout your vacation.




Water Bottle























Airplanes are very dry, it is essential to always stay hydrated on board and the amount of water one get on airplane is never enough. So in order to remain hydrated one must carry an empty water bottle which can be easily refilled on airports. Most of the time airports serve fresh water for the tourist to fill their water bottle. so carrying a bottle always come handy. You can get these bottles easily on amazon.

Senior digital editor Nina Ruggiero says this J.Crew pick is “large enough to work as a wrap on a cold plane, light enough to wear upon arrival in a warm destination if I don't have space to stow it in my bag, and vibrant enough to be a statement accessory during my trip.” Therefore it is essential to carry a scarf, it works in a lot of different forms. Sometimes it can be used for wraping and sometimes it works as a statement piece.

Travel Adapter   





It may be tempting to pack your travel adapter in your checked bag, but it’s another essential you wouldn’t want to be caught without in a lost luggage. This adapter works in more than 150 countries and gives you three outlets and a USB slot to plug into so you can keep all of your tech charged and ready to go. Just be sure to use it with dual-voltage devices only, as it doesn’t convert electrical voltage.

Portable Charger  and All Charging Cords






Nobody likes to see their electronics getting drained out of battery. Rather than searching for a plug outlet it's better to have portable charger in your carry on. There are few airlines which provide USB slots for charging your devices in-flight. Make sure to pack a portable battery to avoid getting your battery running low.


Keep all your charging cords handy so that whenever you need them it must be easily accessible. Otherwise what's the use of portable charger if your cords are far away.

In-flight Entertainment



Long flights could be troublesome without any entertainment resources. Some flights do provide limited amount of entertainment resources while some do not provide any entertainment at all.Therefore it is advised to to have some books either kindle books, hard bound books or audio books or magazines to enjoy the journey




Travel Pillow   





Travel pillows  will definitely make you feel comfortable as they are made of  soft foam, adapts perfectly to the shape of the body, provides good support for the cervical vertebrae and the head and prevents head, neck and shoulder pain resulting from sleeping in a seated position. It relieves muscles and allows the cervical vertebrae to remain in a position close to the anatomic position ideal for travel. Perfect for those who travel for long hours in planes.





Ear phones / Headphones


























Good quality ear phone or headphones are the best way to keep unwanted sound off track. It makes your journey a bearable one. Listening to slow music on airplanes is a great way to get entertained.
