5 Travel Accessories for a Smooth Journey

Traveling should be as easy as 1-2-3, but that’s not always the case. Whether you forget something and then remember it when you’ve already arrived at your destination, your bags get delayed, or your layover lasts longer than expected, traveling is not always a smooth ride. The CGS Team is sharing 5 travel accessories that can actually help make your trip less stressful. If you love to travel as much as we do, then here are a few travel accessories to keep in mind when on the go.

Travel accessories for a smooth journey

Water Purifier

One accessory that most people don’t think of is the water purifier. This must-have traveling accessory comes in handy when you’re traveling almost anywhere, especially internationally. There are plenty of on-the-go purifiers available that can be used for indoor and outdoor adventures.

Some places carry water-borne illnesses, so why not play it safe? Keeping your purifier with you while out and about can ensure your water is always drinkable. Hydro-Photon’s handheld water purifier uses an ultraviolet light to destroy more than 99.9% of potentially hazardous microorganisms.

Sleep Aid

Traveling can be very irritating when noise consumes the plane. Crying babies, loud individuals, and the sound of the plane can serve as major annoyances. Nothing beats a travel accessory that helps you sleep soundlessly during the ride. The Acoustic Sheep Sleep Phones help you rest comfortably without the hassle of getting caught up in headphone wires.

Perhaps you’re taking the red eye? Not to worry these earphones are specially made for travelers to get some rest. They let you fall asleep comfortably listening to music or soothing sounds, thanks to its built-in soft fleece headband. No sleeping medicine is required for rest while traveling with these phones!

Travel Plug Adapter

When travelling internationally, never forget your convertible power adapter! Most U.S. plugs will not fit into international outlets, and a girl can’t be without her hair tools! Bringing a versatile charger means you are thinking ahead. If you don’t want to buy one, then confirm with your hotel what types of power outlets they use. Plan ahead and check which plug adapter works best for your trip. Fortunately, portable adapters take up little space and are often cheaper to buy at a store as opposed to the airport.


City girls, it’s much better to be safe than sorry! Bringing a flashlight can seem random, but it’s a must-have essential while traveling. Due unexpected weather conditions, there could blackouts, power outages and light shortages that can cause complete darkness. Having a portable flashlight with you will make dealing with power issues smoother than not having one!

When traveling, it’s a good idea to keep the flashlight with your wherever you go. It’s also always nice to carry one with you to help you look in your purse when it gets dark on the plane. Most phones come with flashlights, so make sure you know how to access yours!

An Organized Travel Bag (or Two)

A travel bag that organizes your smaller items is a necessity while traveling. The worst thing is misplacing excess, smaller items in your purse. Having a few travel bags for similar items is always a good idea. For example, pack all of your make-up in one bag and your toiletries in another. Every lady should invest in miniature travel bags; we promise you won’t regret this buy! In fact, you can get a pack of 3 at stores like Target or Ulta.
