Essentials For A Long Flight/ Road-trip

Even if you’ve never been on a long flight or on a road-trip, you can imagine how draining they can be sometimes. I personally hate airplanes so being on long flights is so hard for me. I love road-trips though, but being in the car for so long can be extremely difficult, especially on your body. In this post, I’m going to be sharing my Essentials For A Long Flight/ Road-trip! Let’s get into it!

The Essentials:

  • Your phone, phone charger and earphones
  • Tissues
  • Gum & Tic Tacs – some type of mint, to keep you from getting nauseous
  • Mirror
  • Hair ties, Foldable Hair Brush
  • Travel Advil or other medicine
  • Chapstick – you always want to keep your lips hydrated on long flights/ road-trips
  • Mini towelettes or hand sanitizer
  • Tide To Go – in case you spill something and don’t have time to change once you land
  • Lavender essential oil or another oil – to keep you calm
  • Perfume spray & deodorant
  • Makeup wipes – if you want to wash your face
  • A book
  • Planner & Pens – if you want to plan out your trip

These are my essentials I need to have within reach of me when traveling. I will either have them in my purse and or carry-on bag. It’s so easy to feel nauseous/sick, unrelaxed when traveling so having medicine, essential oils and gum/mints is important to keep you calm, and feeling well. I love bringing makeup wipes with me as an essential because if I have makeup on and want to take it off I easily can, or if I want to just wipe my face I can too. My planner is essential because I’m the type of person that needs to plan everything out. I usually will plan out my trips or go over the plans while on the long flight/ road-trip. What are your travel essentials?

That’s everything for this post! I hope you enjoyed this! I hope it gives you some insight on what to bring as your essentials for a long flight/ road-trip!

    Yes, yes, yes to all of those! My two staples are my portable phone charger and, as of late, Dramamine – because there’s nothing worse than a dead phone and motions sickness! 😉 Great list!

    I wish I was organized enough to have even half of this list! I fly long haul (12h+) every month, sometimes more and after a while I just get used to it and try to sleep for as long as I can lol
