We love to travel, but whether it's short or long-haul, flying is not always the most enjoyable experience. Being trapped in a metal cylinder with a few hundred strangers for hours on end can become uncomfortable, no matter how often you travel.
As much as we wish we could all fly business class every time, there’s no need to throw all of your cash away on upgrades just yet! Invest in a few small luxuries and you could arrive on the other end feeling like a first-class-flying superstar.
These are some of our favourite in-flight essentials:
Backup portable charger
Whether its accessing in-flight wi-fi, watching movies or just to make sure you arrive at your destination fully charged, a portable charger is a great investment to give your devices enough extra juice to last that 20 hour flight.
Don’t stop your beauty regime for that long haul flight. Wake up feeling refreshed and ditch the frizz. The cling free properties in these silk pillowcases will mean arriving looking like you had your blow dry during the flight, instead of 24 hours ago. And so you don’t misplace your precious sleep companion on the plane or your hotel, snap up a handy silk travel case at the same time. The travel case will remind you to pack up your pillowcase before you depart, and is small enough to stuff into even the most duty-free shopping-laden carry on luggage.
Screaming child sitting two rows behind you? Enough said.
An eye mask is as necessary to long haul travel as Nutella is to a broken heart. If you haven’t yet discovered the 100% Mulberry Silk eye-mask by The Goodnight Co. then you are possibly not taking your travel comfort seriously enough.
Hydrating Face Mist
A face mist is a fantastic way to keep your skin hydrated during a long flight. The calming and delicate properties of rose in Sodashi's Calming Rose Face Mist cool sensitive and inflamed skin while reducing redness and inflammation. The perfect way to make sure you arrive at your destination looking refreshed.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
Whether you're watching the seat back screen or the movies you pre-loaded on your tablet, noise cancelling headphones are a great idea to ensure you can actually hear and enjoy your choice of in-flight entertainment. We love these ones from Bose.
