Traveling overseas, especially long-haul flights can be daunting for many people. To make your journey more pleasurable, I have put together a list of travel accessories for international travel that are must-haves in my eyes.
I have been traveling extensively with and without my family for years and have added more travel accessories that made my travels more enjoyable over time.
Most of the travel accessories for international travel are inexpensive but will make your (travel) life so much easier and comfortable. Sometimes, it’s the little things that count.

There is no doubt in my mind that you will find my list of travel items just as useful as I do; regardless if you are going by yourself or with your family.
17 Must- Have Travel Accessories For International Travel
Shacke Pak – 4 Set Packing Cubes
It is made from high-quality, durable, water-resistant nylon material and allows you to store and organize your clothing quickly. Pack and unpack your luggage with ease, especially on layovers.
The added Laundry bag helps to separate the dirty clothes at the end of your vacation.
The Shacke Pak packing cubes are available in eight colors.
Uxcell TSA 3-dial Approved Security Lock Travel Luggage Strap
Due to security reasons, it is always recommended to travel with luggage (either a suitcase or backpack) with a built-in TSA lock. Well, after lots of research it turns out bags with a built-in lock are hard to get. Instead, I found an excellent travel accessory.
It’s called a Travel Luggage Suitcase Belt with a built-in TSA lock.
I like the idea of a travel belt since they are available in different colors. That means you can easily spot your bag in between all the other suitcases.
They also secure your luggage just in case something happens to it during the rough handling at the airport.
The Uxcell travel luggage strap is adjustable and comes in different color choices.
Bach Rescue Remedy
This natural remedy is an essential in everyone’s handbag or first aid kit. I have been using it for years for myself and my children. It has helped us tremendously when dealing with jet lag, when we are feeling stressed or unwell in general.
Please try Bach Rescue Remedy for yourself. I recommend checking with your doctor before using it.
Bach Rescue Remedy is also available as pastilles and alcohol-free for children.
Swiss Army Pocket Knife
It turned out to be one of the most useful tools to have. Cut your nails, open a bottle of beer, need a screwdriver? It’s all there when you need it. I still have and use my pocket knife.
Important: Please keep in mind to put the knife in your check-in luggage when you fly otherwise it will go in the trash bin at the airport!
It is usable in more than 150 countries worldwide. It charges your device safely and comes with three international adapters.
The four USB charging ports are suitable for iPad, Tablets, iPhone, Samsung and other mobile phones. Another must-have when traveling abroad!
Electronics Organizer Travel Bag
The bag is available in seven trendy colors and has enough room to store an iPad, phone charger, laptop adapter, and more.
The different compartments inside the bag are keeping them separated so you’ll be able to find everything in a flash. On top of that, the padded dividers are adjustable as well.
The bag is waterproof and shockproof and comes with a 30-day money back guarantee.
Wearing compression stockings during a long haul flight will make all the difference to your comfort. Compression stockings help to prevent varicose veins, but more importantly, reduces the impact of the air pressure on your legs on a long-haul flight.
I can’t stretch enough how much more comfortable you’ll feel when wearing these stockings on a flight. No more tired feeling legs or the need to walk up and down the aisle to get the blood circulation going. You can thank me later. 🙂
My preferred stockings are the open feet ones that go up to your thigh.
The LTHA stockings are latex free and a silicone band on the top keeps them in place. The stockings come with a 30-day money back guarantee.
The first thing I am always doing, after I put my cabin bag away, of course, is taking my shoes off and slip into the snuggliest, most comfortable fleece socks. The Janska MocSocks are super comfortable and will keep your feet warm.
Thanks to the skid-resistant sole and a double layer of fleece, they are also great for walking around on the airplane.
I do love the fact that these slipper socks are made in the USA. They are available in seven colors and are machine washable.
Cabeau Fold‘ n Go Travel Blanket
We all know how cold it gets on an airplane which feels even worse when you get tired. Even though the airlines supply blankets (on a long-haul flight), the blankets are usually too small and not warm enough.
The Cabeau Fold’ n Go travel blanket will become your essential travel companion so you will feel warm and cozy.
The Cabeau travel blanket is lightweight and comes with a convenient travel bag for easy storage.
It is made from soft French microfibre and is machine washable.
Snuggle up, relax, and stay warm on your next trip with the high-quality Cabeau travel blanket.
LANGRIA 6-in-1 Memory Foam Neck Support Travel Pillow
A good quality travel pillow is another must-have in my list of travel accessories for international travel. You’ll find a huge variety of travel pillows on the market, but my favorite ones are memory foam travel pillows.
The Langria 6-in-1 travel pillow is probably one of the most versatile and best travel pillows available.
It is constructed of breathable fabric and premium memory foam. It is extra large for more support and offers six different sleeping positions.
The adjustable strap makes it even more comfortable to wear. The detachable hood is fantastic to block out any light while you get a good rest.
I do like the matching travel pouch and the removable cover can be washed in the machine. Highly recommended!
GO Active Flex- Stainless Steel Double Wall Bottle With 3 lids
The Go Active stainless steel bottle is perfect for keeping cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot drinks stay hot for up to 12 hours.
As an extra bonus, the Go Active bottle comes with three different lids so you’ll find the ideal for your needs.
This travel bottle holds 24 ounces of liquid and is available in 5 different colors.
Just make sure to empty the bottle before you go through security check.
The customer service is great. If you are not happy with the Go Active drink bottle, you can return it any time for a full refund.
Marsno M1 Wired Metal In-Ear Headphones
I can’t imagine going on a trip without earphones especially not on a noisy airplane. The Marsno wired metal in-ear headphones are a great travel companion because they are sturdy, lightweight, and they look stylish.
These in-ear headphones are designed to block out external noises so you get to hear your music or audiobooks in a clear, high-quality sound.

This travel wallet is roomy and fits easily multiple passports, flight tickets, boarding passes, and has several credit card slots.

Mancro Laptop Backpack
Most people are taking their laptop, iPad, or other electronic devices on their trips. The Mancro Laptop backpack is perfect for safely storing your precious devices but also leaves enough space to pack any other items you may need on a flight, like the travel pillow or foldable travel blanket.
The eco-friendly nylon fabric is water repellent and durable at the same time.
Overall, the Mancro backpack is stylish with a sleek design and comes in seven colors.
It also has an inbuilt USB charger and to keep your stuff safe has a combination lock.
Carry-On Bag/ Cabin Bag
The Travelpro Maxlite 4 International Carry-On Spinner Suitcase has been one of my favorite cabin bags in our review post for the Best Carry On Luggage for international travel.
It is essential to have a carry-on bag that fits the airline’s requirements, is of high-quality material, and is easy to maneuver.
The Travelpro Maxlite 4 ticks all the boxes. It looks stylish, comes in four colors, and is lightweight.
Best of all, the Travelpro carry-on bag comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Read our detailed review here.
TSA Approved Travel Toiletry Bottle Set
Keep them organized in the clear TSA heavy-duty travel case and have your beauty products on hand even on the airplane.
This space-saving toiletry set would be also fantastic for a short trip or weekend getaway.
You can try the set for a whole year without any risk. If you are not happy, you’ll get a full refund for your purchase.
Care Touch Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer Wipes
The wipes are fragrance and paraben free and are clinically proven to kill 99.99% of germs.
So, protect your family and yourself from these unwanted germs especially while you are traveling.
