Traveling isn’t always the easiest thing. Making sure everything fits in your bag, you have the right items, in the right sizes for travel. With the right products you can find ways to make traveling a bit easier. Over the years I have tried a lot of travel products, some of those have become favorites that I take on all my trips.

26 Must Have Travel Products from Amazon
Here are some of my favorite items to make packing your bags a bit easier
I am all about packing cubes. I managed to spend an entire month with my family of 5 and only brought a backpack each. Now that is some organized packing. I cannot suggest enough, that if you are planning on traveling a lot to invest in a set of packing cubes. They will change your packing game forever. I found my set of 8 pieces from Amazon for $24.99.
Another great travel product from Amazon I have come across are some great space saving bags that do not require a vacuum or a pump.They cost $15.97 for 8 bags, and you simply put your items in the back, seal it up, and roll. They come in many different sizes, perfect for all your packing needs! You could even pack an extra empty one if you plan on doing some shopping on your vacation.
I love a good accessory. But packing them can prove to be difficult. I’ve found a few great options from Amazon to help me keep those little pieces organized. These great travel products range in style and price from $12.99 to $19.99. They have pockets to hold rings, necklaces, and earrings, and it folds up into a nice compact handbag, which means more room in your bag.
Organized travel is so important to me. And that starts with a special travel wallet. You always seem to need more cards, and things when traveling. This wallet has room for your passport, boarding pass, vaccination card, and still has room for your ID and all your credit/debit cards. The best part about this wallet is that it has RFID blocking shield protection. It helps protect the personal information kept inside.
Flying with a container of liquid isn’t always super simple. You need to follow certain guidelines, and requirements for the amount and size of your bottle. I have found these super awesome and convenient, collapsible traveling bottles. They squish down super small, so they take up almost no room at all when not being used. They only hold the amount allowed to fly. A must have if you’re traveling by airplane.
Traveling with your electronics can be so unorganized and hectic. Oftentimes when you’re flying you need to remove all electronic devices from your bag while going through security. You panic, where is everything at, do you need to unpack? No you do not. I have found the most perfect electronic organizer for traveling. It has elastic loops to hold your chargers and mouse. It also has large mesh pockets to hold all of the devices you need to bring. All while having a water resistant cover, and a dual easy access zipper.
I know this has happened to me before, what about you? After all the planning, packing, oh and that long day of traveling. You get there, and your shampoo has leaked all over the place. Hello vacation laundry. These leak locks stop all that worry. This stretchy elastic sleeve slips right over the cap of your bottle and stops them from leaking all over the place. And it comes in a 4 pack!
Travel Items for the Car
I love road trips and these are some travel items from Amazon to help keep you organized.
Collapsable Travel Unit
I really like the collapsible organization travel unit. It is built to secure the loose clutter floating around your vehicle. It is durable and has the capacity to fit in the trunk or front seat to hold groceries, tools, work materials, or snacks and toys for the kid’s on a long drive.
Backseat Organization mat
This car backseat organization kick mat from Amazon is the best for traveling with kids. It has 9 pockets to hold all of the things your kids bring along for the ride. It also keeps your seats clean, when little feet start flying around. And it keeps everything within reach for your kids.
Car Seat Travel Tray
Traveling with kids can sometimes be hectic and stressful. When you use this car seat travel tray it puts things a little more in control and keeps them organized. This tray from Amazon fits perfectly over the child and clips behind them to stay secured. This tray comes with a flat surface that can double as a snack table, or a white erase board for arts and crafts. It has pockets on both sides to store all the toys and arts and crafts items to keep the kids busy. It is accustomed with a cup holder and a tablet pouch on top. Perfect traveling product for your kids in the car!
I had a young kid that refused to use a public bathroom while potty training. Wanted nothing to do with it. So we had to take a travel potty everywhere we went. Although it seemed like an inconvenience, it came in handy so much when a public bathroom wasn’t even an option. This 2-in-1 travel potty can be used as a toilet seat, if they’re willing to use that public bathroom. Or with a bag inserted can be set on a flat service and be their own toilet.
When my girls were really young, they would throw their toys. All kids do it, it’s such a fun game for them. The biggest problem with that is, you don’t always see when, or where this toy has been thrown. If your kid has a favorite must have toy, you do NOT want to lose that. This secure a toy is an adjustable length strap with snaps. You simply secure one end to your child’s toy and the other end to the stroller or car seat. Even a high chair if you’re dining out! Now when they throw the toy, it’s just hanging there.
Let’s face it… traveling with kids, you bring a lot of stuff. Oftentimes way too much stuff. If your kids are like mine, things end up falling, or being thrown for those younger ones. You can’t always reach it though, and if you stopped the car every time you had to grab something out of reach you’d never get there. This grabber solves all those problems. It is small, so it takes up very little room. It is simple enough for kids to use, and it has a magnetic rotating gripping claw on the end. Perfect!
This on the go booster car seat is ideal while traveling. I managed to pack this in my backpack when we traveled to Costa Rica. This booster seat is designed for kids as young as 4, and can accommodate a weight of 40 to 100 lbs. The Mi-fold travel car seat is the world’s most compact and narrow backless booster. But don’t let that fool you, it is just as safe as a traditional booster seat.

Travel Must Haves for the Plane
Well we’ve packed our bags, now what do we do? The journey begins, but what travel products can we use to make flying more enjoyable?
Let’s be honest, sometimes traveling can be uncomfortable. Falling asleep in the car or an airplane and you wake up with a crick in your neck. We’ve all been there. Using a u shaped neck pillow will help stop that problem. The best part about this Amazon product is that it is inflatable. You know what that means… more room in your bag when you’re not using it. This travel pillow comes with a handy carrying case, and a washable case and comes in 4 different colors for $10.99. It even comes with fun animal options for the kids.
Airfly has been a lifesaver when traveling on more than one occasion. This wireless airpod adaptor allows you to transmit audio from in flight entertainment. It allows you to connect to your airpods for no wired headphone stress. The battery life on this thing is impressive. It can last for 16+ hours. Airfly will also work while charging which is perfect!
slip your Airplane Pocket over your tray table and have a clean surface to eat and work on. No more having to worry about the cleanliness of the passenger before you, you now have a brand-new tray table, and 4 clean pockets to store your personal items in during your flight!
The travel phone mount is the most adaptable phone holder. It can attach to a table, luggage handle, gym equipment or even the plane seat in front of you. :) It rotates 360 degrees and can hold phones of many sizes. This has come in so handy while traveling.
Whether you’re traveling to a warm beach vacation or a snowy mountain top vacation. You will need to have some of these travel products to make your vacation more fun and more memorable.
I don’t go on a vacation without my gopro. It gives me an easy way to video all the new things we are trying and experiencing on our trip. I got mine from Amazon, they can be a bit pricey but they are waterproof and so reliable.
If you’re bringing your go pro, you are going to need the case to make packing, and traveling with it easier. From Amazon you can get this waterproof carrying case, a strap to make carrying it easier, and so many more accessories with it.

It will keep out water, snow, dust, sand, and dirt and make sure you can still capture those special moments with a clear window on both sides.

If you’re traveling in a backpack like I do. You’re packing clothes in there pretty tight, and they get wrinkly. This mini steamer takes up no more room than a pair of shoes, and can help liven up your wardrobe. It can produce up to 15 minutes of continuous steam, and heats up in less than 2 minutes.
Do you like to hike? Then this lifestraw needs to be added to your hiking list. The life straw removes 99.99% of the bacteria and parasites found in water. It also removes the smallest of microplastics found in your environment. It has gone through rigorous testing, and has a long lifespan if used and maintained properly. This straw reduces your worry of having to drink water you find when needed.
If you’re anything like me, I won’t make it long if I don’t start my day with some coffee. This portable travel coffee press makes delicious coffee, espresso, and cold brew in 1 minute. When not used it can collapse to a cup smaller than the palm of your hand. This travel coffee press makes 1-3 cups per press and leaves no nasty grit in your cup. It is portable and versatile and a must if you think you’ll be traveling where a traditional coffee maker isn’t an option.
Sometimes you don’t have room in your bag for a traditional blow dryer, they can be big and bulky and oftentimes unnecessary. This travel blow dryer is compact but still holds the power of any normal hair dryer. This dryer is about the size of a cell phone and it also reduces the damage caused by direct heat. Meaning less static, and makes your hair shiny and smooth. What a dream!
