Top 10 Amazon Products for Travel

If you are anything like me, even though you are staying home right now, you are doing two things – shopping on Amazon and planning future travel. I think I have 10 trips booked for next year so I thought it was the perfect time to put together a list of my top 10 must-have travel items from Amazon. Make sure to share your favorites below and fingers crossed we can start traveling again soon!

  1. Compression Packing Cubes

I spent two weeks in Europe in 2019 and these packing cubes were a total game-changer. I was able to pack for a full two-week trip in a carry-on and I felt more organized than ever. Packing cubes are a great way to organize your items but these compression packing cubes take that to the next level.

2. Travel Bottles

These travel bottles are my absolute favorite for taking my favorite products on the plane. They are leakproof and super easy to fill and empty. I also love that they are silicone because they are easy to squeeze and they are a lot more durable than a hard plastic bottle.

3. Foot Rest

This item might be my favorite travel find ever. Specifically made for air travel, this foot sling is amazing for keeping your legs elevated during a long flight. I purchased this for my last European flight and we had minimal legroom, at best. This $15 foot hammock gave me so much relief for my stiff legs and even helped me fall asleep on the plane – which never happens!

4. Travel Pillow

The standard “C” shaped travel pillow has been given a huge upgrade with the new bendable styles. This twist memory foam pillow is such an amazing travel item because you can literally bend it to contour to your neck or shoulders. The cover is machine washable and the pillow includes a snap for security around luggage.

5. Expandable Tote

Every time I travel, I end up coming back with much more than I started with. I have started traveling with a collapsible tote and it has been such a wonderful thing to have. Not only do I use it for extra packing space, but I also pull it out for excursions, as a beach bag or even as a diaper bag for the kids. This one is super lightweight and can fold up so small you won’t even know you have it – until you need it!

6. Digital Luggage Scale

Traveling with a heavy piece of luggage is often a guessing game until you arrive at the airport and plop your bag on the scale. This digital scale is the perfect way to test your luggage weight before you even leave the house. This tool eliminates a lot of anxiety and can save you a ton of money on overweight luggage fees!

7. Noise Cancelling Headphones

Whether you are traveling on a bus, train or plane, there are often noises that are distracting you from reading, sleeping or working. These noise cancelling headphones are the perfect way to drown out the noise and they are a fraction of the cost of other brands. They are also a lot more comfortable than earpods and play music or audiobooks beautifully.

8. Portable Back-up Phone Charger

This might seem like an obvious choice when traveling, but believe me when I say that finding the right portable charger with a lot of battery power can be a lifesaver. I have been stuck with a low battery waiting on an uber and it couldn’t have been a more stressful experience. Make sure to always keep your backup charger fully charged and on you at all times when traveling.

9. Outlet Adapter

This outlet adapter set is perfect for all of your travel needs. It comes with all of the major outlet adapters and even has a space for multiple USB’s, which is key for all of today’s technology. I love that it has so many available outlets and everything is all in one place.

10. RFID Travel Wallet

Last but definitely not least, I wanted to include this RFID Travel Wallet. This specific style is the perfect size for a passport, tickets, cash and a few important cards. It includes invaluable RFID technology and opens up flat for easy organization. It is also really lightweight so you can throw it any backpack or purse.

I hope these Amazon finds will help you prepare for your next vacation! I know I can’t wait to get back to traveling and look forward to the many adventures ahead!
