For listening to music, watching a movie or drowning out the snoring man next to you, headphones are a necessary part of any flight.
Staying hydrated is so important when it comes to traveling, especially on those long flights. You don’t want to start your trip off on the wrong foot! Keep an extra bottle of water with you at all times.
3. Portable Phone Charger
Whether you are using your phone to listen to music, or browsing Facebook during your flight, chances are that it will drain your battery life. Packing a portable charger will ensure that your phone will never be dead (as long as you make sure to charge it)!
4. Change of Clothes
Bringing a change of clothes is always a good idea just in case something happens to your luggage, you won’t be stuck in the same dirty clothes. It is also a good idea to bring a change of clothes with you in case your flight is cold and you need to bundle up more!
Airplanes do offer snacks most of the time, but they are usually loaded with sodium. Pack extra snacks for yourself to avoid bloating and feeling bad!
It’s always a good idea to throw a hair brush, tooth brush and toothpaste and maybe even some dry shampoo in your carry on. You may arrive to your hotel before your check in time and these can come in handy when you need to freshen up after a long flight!
7. Reading Material
Investing in a good book for your flight can be a game changer. If you’re one of those people who just cannot fall asleep on a flight, diving into a good book can make time go by so much faster.
