Five Essential Travel Products That You Probably Haven’t Thought Of

When it comes to packing lists, most people only think of the basics: clothing, toiletries, ID cards, and necessary electronics, such as phones and tablets. The five items here go beyond this – although they are just as essential to have when you are away from home.

Portable Travel Charger

Everyone should carry at least one portable travel charger with them when traveling. Here at TravelBarista, we suggest the Vinsic Tulip 3200mAh Power Bank. It’s an external charger that you plug in to your computer ahead of time and fill with power to bring with you on the go. The Vinsic Tulip’s portable size makes it easy to stash in a carryon bag or purse, and it’s compatible with most popular electronics. If your device runs out of power mid-flight, simply hook the power bank up to it and it will add enough juice to get you to your next stop.

Headphones

In-ear headphones have two major advantages over the other types: you get amazing sound quality, and your neighbors will not be able to hear what you’re listening to. Our favorite are the Bose Soundsport model, which are lightweight and comfortable to wear. Plus, they are very portable!

Professional Camera

In order to take great vacation pictures, you need an excellent camera, like Canon EOS 70D model. While a cell phone will shoot photos and video, the quality isn’t as good as that of a traditional camera. The Canon EOS 70D is a digital SLR with lenses that you can switch out depending on your needs. It produces very high-res images, and is extremely quiet. There are many different modes to choose from, ensuring that you’ll get the best pictures no matter the lighting conditions. You won’t regret bringing this with you!

Hydration Water Spray

One great hydration water spray is the Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Spa Water, which comes in an easy to use spray can. The recirculating air on planes tends to be drying, but slathering on a traditional moisturizer doesn’t always do the trick, especially on an airplane, where you might end up with product everywhere! Instead, reach for a bottle of this finely misting spray water from Vichy. It will rehydrate your skin mid-flight and after landing. Remember, if you keep your skin hydrated properly all of the time, you won’t age as quickly.

Global SimCard

A global simcard, like the ChatSim Unlimited, will prevent you from being hit with international roaming charges. All that you need is a compatible cell phone (remember that some carriers have phones that don’t use SIM cards) and you’ll be able to chat with Telegram, WhatsApp, and numerous other ChatApps in over 150 countries.
