Traveling is fun…once you arrive at your destination. But as far as I’m concerned, getting from point A to point B is an uncomfortable situation that I just try to get through the best I can. That means having all the right travel accessories to make the trip go by with less stress.

Clearly, you don’t have to get married to understand the benefits of good travel gear, but you can use your upcoming wedding to your advantage if you’re a couple that enjoys exploring the world together. Whether you’re looking for some tech assistance or just want to travel more comfortably, we’ve got you covered.

As a light sleeper who is absolutely desperate for even a few solid minutes of in-flight shuteye, I can say with confidence that a good sleep mask can make sleeping on planes possible. The trick is finding a mask that blocks out all the light — including the pesky light that sneaks in around your nose. This cotton sleep mask is ultra comfortable and has an adjustable nose wire to ensure total darkness.

I love this simple but ultra-functional space saving option that has a spot for every single thing you’re packing.

If you haven’t jumped on the packing cube bandwagon, please trust me when I say they are worth every penny. You may think that they’re a cute way to organize your suitcase at best, but they can actually help you save a ton of space when you’re packing. Compression packing cubes take it to the next level, giving you even more room in your bags, whether you’re traveling light with a carry-on or packing for a month-long adventure.

Honeymooning somewhere cold? Planning to ski with the in-laws every winter? Say it with me: Vacuum bags are non-negotiable. No, really. While the compression packing cubes can save room with everyday garments, vacuum bags literally flatten even your bulkiest coats and cold weather clothes. If you want a truly easy option, you can remove the air from these vacuum bags with an electric pump that plugs into a USB adapter.
