50 Examples of Essential Travel Accessories

From Trackable Luggage Concepts to Retro Amenity Kits

— May 26, 2015 — World
Travel accessories are becoming more sophisticated with every passing day thanks to the incorporation of technology. Yet there are still some classic essentials such as neck pillows, eye masks and toiletries that remain as analog as ever. Of course, that doesn't mean they aren't given the innovative treatment. Neck pillows in particular have been reimagined over the years in the hopes of creating a more comfortable cushioned rest for the user.

That said, some of the more exciting travel accessories involve luggage in particular. Bags have been redesigned to accommodate a range of tech devices. Other similar travel accessories have been embedded with sensors to help people avoid losing their luggage -- which is a common occurrence, unfortunately. By embracing technology, brands and designers have found ways to make the journey itself more enjoyable and stress-free.
