The summer travel season is just around the corner and I’ve been busy rounding up the very best travel accessories for women whether your plans involve travel by plane, by car, by train or by ship. Even better, all of these finds are under $20.
1. Mini Travel Garment Steamer
I do not like to iron, but I also don’t like to be wrinkled, so this mini travel garment steamer is kind of a must-have for me.
It heats up quickly and it’s compact and easy to store in my luggage. It’s also good for de-wrinkling home items, like curtains, but I’ll just stick to travel use. Check the latest price now.
2. Evian Facial Spray
My mom gave me a bottle of Evian Facial Spray on my first trip to Paris in high school and I’ve been using it on overseas flights ever since. I love how it makes me feel refreshed.
There’s nothing like being trapped in economy for eight hours to make you feel in serious need of rehydration. A quick mist on your face is all you need. Check the latest price now.
3. Foldable Ballet Flats
I can’t travel without my foldable ballet flats. They’re super comfortable, they match with everything and they make it breeze to get through airport security.
Since these flats come with a carrying pouch, I often throw them into my purse if I’m wearing heels because really, I can only wear heels for so long. Check the latest price now.
4. Airport-Friendly No-Tie Shoelaces
Breeze through airport security with no-tie shoelaces. I’ve long seen Lock Laces marketed to triathletes, but they’re a perfect fit for the airport security line too.
It’s easy to switch out the standard laces on your sneakers with elastic no-tie laces to make them slip-on shoes. Everyone in line behind you will thank you. Check the latest price now.
5. Portable Speaker
There will be times when you’re traveling (or even just making dinner at home) and are eager for more than the tinny sound emanating from your iPad or iPhone.
Enter the portable mini speaker system from AYL. It’s small (mini), rechargeable, compatible with all audio players, and the sound quality is fantastic. Check the latest price now.
6. Travel Door Alarm
For peace of mind when you travel, the portable door alarm from Doberman Security is a real find. Hang the travel alarm over the doorknob and insert the clip between the door and doorjamb.
If the door opens, the alarm will sound. It’s as simple as that. As a bonus, it even has a flashlight. Check the latest price now.
7. Rollaboard Bag Stacker
It’s not easy to roll more than one rollaboard suitcase through the airport, but the multi-bag stacker from Travelon definitely makes it much easier.
The bag stacker is especially useful for moms with kids who aren’t quite ready (or interested) in pulling their own bags. Pull up to four suitcases at once. Check the latest price now.
8. Hanging Luggage Scale
There’s nothing worse than finding out your luggage weighs more than the max allowed by the airline. Pay the overweight baggage fees or step out of line to reallocate your belongings.
That’s where the hanging luggage scale comes in to play. It’s ideal for those coming home with loads of souvenirs. Check the latest price now.
9. Multi-Purpose Travel Passport Wallet
Everything has its place inside this travel passport wallet from Zoppen, making it easy to access your travel documents, a real plus when you’re in the security and customs lines.
No need to dig around for your passport, credit cards, boarding passes and phone. It’s all right there. As a bonus, this passport wallet comes in nearly 20 colors. Check the latest price now.
10. Waterproof Hanging Travel Organizer
There is never enough room on the hotel bathroom counter for all my toiletries. Not that I travel with a lot, but I would like room for more than my toothbrush and toothpaste.
Enter the hanging travel organizer from Mr. Pro. It’s easy to transport in your luggage and has lots of pockets, as well as a hook to hang from a shower rod. Check the latest price now.
11. Travel Packing Cubes (+ Bonus Laundry Pouches)
Travel packing cubes are a great way to organize your clothes in your suitcase, as well as separate your work out gear from your dress-up clothes from your unmentionables.
As a bonus, this six-piece set comes with laundry pouches perfect for keeping dirty clothes separate from clean clothes in your luggage. Check the latest price now.
12. TSA-Approved Clear Toiletry Bag
I still don’t understand how you’re supposed to fit all your toiletries into a quart-size storage bag, but at least this TSA-approved toiletry bag is more durable than a Ziploc bag.
