From takeoff to landing, frequent travelers know that the right travel accessories make a big difference. To make your next trip a little easier, our team compiled some of our must-have travel essentials that'll make your journey a breeze. Trust us, these are the items you'll be thanking yourself for packing.
Staying healthy on-the-go is a must. For easy immune support, throw some Emergen-C packets into your carry-on. These little packets of vitamin C boost your immune system while keeping you hydrated– and adding some flavor to plain water. Just mix one into your water bottle, and you're good to go– because no one's got time for a cold while traveling. And if you forget to pack Emergen-C, never fear! Travel packets are sold at most airport convenience stores.
2. Wired Earbuds
We all know that the earbuds they hand out on planes aren’t the best when it comes to quality– which is why we're all about bringing our own. Wired headphones are inexpensive and offer way better sound quality. Just plug in and zone out to in-flight entertainment.
3. Slip-on Shoes
Want to breeze through TSA like a pro? Slip-on shoes are your best friend. No fumbling with laces or straps. Just slip 'em off, put 'em in the bin, and you're on your way. Plus, they're super comfy for walking around the airport or even taking a quick in-flight nap. But for hygiene’s sake, we always recommend wearing socks with your slip-ons to avoid direct contact with the airport floor.
4. Reusable Water Bottle
When traveling, it’s easy to let hydration fall to the wayside. That’s why we recommend bringing along your favorite reusable water bottle. Our favorite water bottles for traveling are made from hard plastic, making them lightweight and durable enough to refill over and over. Just make sure your bottle is empty before you go through security, then fill it up at a water station on the other side.
5. Non Metal Belt
Last but definitely not least, the right belt can make your experience navigating travel much more comfortable. For this reason, we recommend bringing a TSA-friendly non metal belt along on your journey. These belts with no metal and plastic buckles allow you to breeze through security without the hassle of removing it.
At Arcade, our metal free belts are designed with comfort and functionality in mind. Made from performance stretch, these belts with no metal move with you without cutting into your skin, whether you're sprinting to catch a flight or sitting back and enjoying the ride. Micro-adjustable buckle dials ensure a custom fit, while high density plastic buckles follow the curve of your form to maximize comfort. Plus, choose from a variety of colors and styles that match your wardrobe for an accessory versatile enough to transition from the airport to dinner without missing a beat.
