Peek into a reliable travel agent’s gear and you’ll likely find a modern survival kit: Spools of cords, pouches of various sizes, bandages, and motion sickness medication. Lucky if you have someone else to lug around things you may have forgotten to pack. But if you're traveling sans a tour guide, these technology and hygiene essentials will prove useful to have on hand.

No one wants to admit it, but bathing in the winter can be a drag. On days that it might be far too cold to wash your hair, or whenever you want to preserve a blowout, use dry shampoo instead. To mattify your scalp and keep your hair smelling fresh, spray on your roots and tousle the hair for volume. As this typically comes in an aerosol spray, make sure to pack the bottle in your check-in baggage.

Having a pair of earphones plugged in will keep a talkative seatmate from engaging you in conversation during a flight. Do this when you are exhausted from work travel. If not, be open to some friendly chat. Sometimes, talking to a stranger on a plane can be better than in-flight entertainment.

Emergency Card


Don’t rely on your mobile phone for everything. When traveling, always keep a card with emergency numbers at your destination as well as contact details of people to call in case anything untoward happens.
