As much as we love traveling, it’s definitely not always a breeze. Nowadays, there are so many options and products designed to ‘make your life easier’ while traveling. But how many of these really do? We’ve put together our tried and tested top 5:
Here’s our list of the best travel essentials for women:
1) Suitcase: Tech friendly, durable and lightweight
Behere Recommends: AWAY
Rushing through busy airports and train terminals is something we can’t avoid but having a suitcase that handles it with ease certainly helps. It’s essential to have a bag that’s easy to handle, durable, and equipped with the latest technology, while also being lightweight, sleek and affordable. Away products are lightweight and durable, with a variety of sizes and colors, plus fun accessories. Away makes your travel days a little less stressful.
2) E-reader: Compact, waterproof, long battery life
Behere Recommends: Kobo or Kindle
Bored with all that wait time while traveling? Pick up an e-reader! E-readers have so many advantages over reading e-books on your phone or tablet. Their screens are designed for reading by limiting eyestrain and the glare of the sun, are lightweight, relatively inexpensive and have a battery life of weeks. Kobo products have multiple e-reader choices, including waterproof (yes, you can read in the pool!!), a large selection of titles and are reasonably priced.
3) Travel Wear: Comfortable, chic
Behere Recommends: ADAY
Being comfortable while looking chic in transit is something many women struggle with. Finding the fine line between ‘I’m wearing my yoga pants’ and ‘I’m about to rip through this blazer’ is critical for everyone. ADAY has created a comfortable and chic wardrobe to fit your lifestyle. All while being technical, sustainable and seasonable.
4) Reusable Water Bottle: Eco-friendly and chemical free
Behere Recommends: BKR
Staying hydrated is especially important when traveling. With so many eco-friendly reusable bottle options out there, it’s hard to pick one. As a modern lady, being environmentally conscious is essential but so is looking chic. Glass bottles are great but the fear of smashing them on the way out of your hot yoga class is not. That’s why BKR is our pick. Their bottles are chic, good for the planet and good for us. Plus they donate a portion of proceeds to good causes worldwide.
5) Travel Pillow: A yoga mat (that doubles as a travel pillow!)
Behere Recommends: Om The Go
Having a pillow while traveling can be a hassle, but provides so much comfort (and a chance to get in a quick nap) so we think it’s worth it. Finding the right neck pillow that doesn’t take up too much space, while still being comfortable can be challenging. Further, if you’re a yogi on the move, bringing your yoga mat usually isn’t an option. But with this 2-in-1 neck pillow and travel yoga mat from Om The Go you can have comfort while traveling, and squeeze in some yoga at your destination.
With so many women traveling everyday, we love brands that help make it easier for us! At Behere we’re making it easier for you too, by helping you travel to cities around the world, without the hassles of getting set up.
