5 Top Travel Accessories You Should Get For Your Next Trip

I travel almost constantly: whether for month long “slow travel” trips, short weekend breaks or visits to friends all over the world… I am constantly on the go. And although I love that, it also means I live out of a suitcase most of the time.

And believe me, if you have lived out of a suitcase or backpack for years you know how to pack light and appreciate practical travel essentials!

Anything that is multi-purpose, small, easy to carry and easy to clean scores points with me.

So Here I Want to Share 5 of These Practical Travel Accessories:

1. Travel Tubs

These travel tubs are just so practical!

I don’t want to carry around my big bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, etc. when I’m only going away for a weekend so I simply transfer some to my Travel Tubs and take those!

And, since I often fly with only carry-on luggage to save on expensive checked luggage I wouldn’t even be allowed to carry my big bottles so these tubs have been great!

The Travel Tubs are also perfect for camping trips, to take to the gym with some lotion or to carry pills in your purse. And, they make great gifts for my travel loving friends! 🙂

Available in 3 TSA approved sizes: 10ml (1/3 oz), 20ml (2/3 oz) and 30ml (1oz)

2. Purse Backpack

Every traveler should have this bag!

This is your perfect multi-functional bag: a shoulder bag that expands into a backpack when you need extra storage space.

When traveling you simply can’t bring numerous different bags so having a purse that expands into a backpack is my ideal solution! Plus it is foldable and lightweight so it doesn’t take up much space.

3. Tote Backpack

This is my personal favorite!

Since I often combine business and pleasure during my travels this bag is perfect for me. It’s big enough to hold my laptop and stylish enough to take to business meetings but then it easily converts into a practical backpack I can take on hikes and long journeys.

With all its pockets it’s such a practical bag to hold all my stuff!

Available in 3 colors.

4. Growler

Bring your favorite beer or beverage with you anywhere!

These bottles are great to keep your drinks cool for hours. With its 64oz (1.9 Liters) size it is substantially bigger than your standard water bottle and therefore especially great to share with family or friends.

You can get a carrier bag and a growler handle separately which makes the bottle perfect to carry with you on trips and outdoor adventures.

5. 3rd Hand Luggage Strap

The perfect travel essential.

I really don’t like having my hands full when I am traveling or navigating through crowded areas. But, I do have certain things I want to carry with me and then I find strapping things to each other a perfect solution.

This luggage strap will pretty much strap anything to your bag, suitcase, etc. I find it ideal to clip on a neck pillow, rain gear, or just my jacket to my bag. Very versatile!

  1. Hey, some great add-ons there that can really make travel easy. Love the idea of the strap to attach an extra bag to the carry on and also Growler looks pretty good especially for travels during the summer months.

  2. I need one of those third hand straps!! I always look like a completely disorganised mess when travelling because I don’t have enough hands but this little device would help so much.

  3. I’ve traveled to about 20 countries for a variety of reasons. But I have never owed a tote backpack or a purse backpack. I will definitely look more into these assessories.

  4. I was given a third hand travel strap for Christmas last year. It took me a few minutes to work out what it was for but wow it’s so handy! One thing not on your list that I would also really like is one of those Grid it organisers.

  5. Thank you so much for this list. I have never seen or heard of 4 of these. Just in time for my birthday! I so need the 3rd hand thing!

  6. Some really great accessories listed here, thanks for the post! I really see a need to add the luggage strap and tote backpack to my collection!

  7. These are all fantastic accessories that we’d love to have for our next trip. I like the containers for shampoo and soap as they are handy and stylish. The purse back pack seems quite handy as well.

  8. I would also add: a powerbar/travel battery! For those of us who are too stubborn to fork out and buy a decent camera my iPhone has been my main travelling buddy and the battery just would not have lasted the three day hike along the Inca Trail without the extra power! Great tips! and another great read!

  9. Thanks for all the tips. These accessories look pretty cool and I think would come in handy even for short trips. I’ll have to look into the purse backpack!
