Travel Tips: On Flight Essentials

Over our travel adventures, we've shared with you our Interrail Backpacking and Bum Bag Essentials, now with having some bigger trips planned, we are going to be sharing with you our on flight essentials that I cannot leave without!

Travel sickness medication - Stugeron/Joy Rides

This is the most important thing within the whole of our list, I am the worst person when it comes to travel sickness and these pills changes the game - I have tried a few different ones but the one I love are the ones you can take half an hour before the flight as some of them you have to take 2 hours before the flight, which makes all the difference because these can be strong that you're already feeling it before the flight!


You'd be surprised how handy one pen can be, depending on where you are going - you may need to fill out a form and imagine the hundreds of people waiting for someone else to finish with the few pens the airport has provided. This was something we actually read when going to Morocco and this is something that we have stuck with us on all our trips, especially interrailing.

Hand sanitiser

Just think about all those germs that are passing through countries and all sorts - it's just one of those things you should carry around with you on a daily bases as well as travelling when you don't always have access to a sink.


So we all know about the regular U shape neck pillow, so what's a J pillow you ask? The J pillow is seriously life changing, the U shape pillow in my personal experience isn't as comfortable as I thought since I am a side sleeper and the J pillow is exactly what is does, supports your neck from from the side down to your chin! LIFE. CHANGING. I have actually never had anything so comfortable while travelling.


Although some flights provide them, but having your own is more comfortable and you definitely need them if you are on a long haul flight and you need them for all the entertainment.

A portable charger

There's nothing worse than watching some entertainment on flight and your table/phone dies or even worse when you land and you are in desperate need to find your way to your hotel or make a call but your battery is dead - never leave the house without one!

There are more items we would list too such as: compressed socks for those whose feet get swollen easily on flight, a fold in water bottle - easy to empty our before going through security and fill up when on the other side and some mints or gum to help with the travel sickness.

What are your essentials that you take on flight?

    1. Glad you think so! It's the best thing I've ever place on my ears - so worth it!

      Thank you for reading and commenting☺️💕

  2. These are such good tips! I have only recently started to carry a portable charger with me when I go on days out or trips, they are so handy! It's amazing how much we use our phones for everything and the battery runs down so quick. The travel pillow looks really comfy, I can never sleep on planes so I might get one for my next flight. Great post, thanks for sharing <3 xx

    1. Portable chargers are so great, eapcially because we use my phone to take photos and vlog, so you can imagine how much battery we lose!

  3. These are some great essentialis! J-pillow is a must as my back tends to hurt a lot! For me, getting a moisturizing face mask is a must- I hate that feeling of dry skin after a flight haha!
