Carry – On Travel Essentials:

It’s a great idea to pack a bag with some carry-on travel essentials when flying on a long haul/international flight.

You don’t want to fly to a destination and realise that the airline has misplaced your suitcase or it has gone missing and you end up having nothing on you.
It is great to have a carry on bag with your travel essentials in it. Having a bag with you helps you pass the time too especially if you have a delayed flight or if you just need to fill in time.

  • Travel documents & Travel Wallet:
    Make sure you have all of your travel documents in a travel wallet or something similar so you don’t loose them.
    A travel wallet is great to put your money/credit cards and license in as well.

  • Travel Sized Toiletries:
    Pack a toothbrush, wipes, makeup, earplugs, hairbrush, chapstick. These are just some ideas of what to pack. Having travel sized toiletries allows you to freshen up on board. They must be travel sized due to airline regulations.
    I would recommend having small silicone bottles for your liquids so they don’t leak or break.

    It is a very good idea to pack a neck pillow and eye mask for a flight especially an international flight as it offers you more comfort than just resting your head on the plane seat. A neck pillow ensures that your neck doesn’t get sore as it supports your neck when you’re trying to rest.
    This 3 in 1 set below is a very good idea as you get a carry bag to put your inflatable neck pillow and eye mask in.

  1. Great list! I would also include toothbrush and toothpaste! The first thing I want to do after a long flight is change clothes and brush my teeth. Thanks for sharing.
