It'll help keep everything organized on trips, thanks to four roomy compartments and a hook that you can hang behind a door *or* on a closet rod. The best part? You can quickly find whatever you need and you won't have to repack it all when it's time to leave.

    Promising reviews: "I saw this on TikTok and purchased it for my trip! Got back home and use it in my own bathroom. I love it that much! Best Amazon purchase I’ve ever made!" —Amazon Customer

    "I bought this bag specifically for when I travelled across the country with my two small children. One of whom is a medically complex child. I put ALL of my toiletries, ALL their toiletries, and ALL of my son's medications in this bag. Everything fit perfectly, and nothing was broken. The hanger is durable and carried lots of weight when it hanged on the back of the bathroom door. I bought the largest size, and it was 100% worth what I paid for. If you are traveling by yourself, I would recommend the smaller size. But if you are packing for others or just pack heavy, definitely buy the larger size. I absolutely loved it! And it was very compact in my suitcase. Very sturdy as I carried it. I HIGHLY recommend buying." —Hannah Funderburk

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in two sizes and six colors). 

    2. A luggage-mounted cup caddy that'll make it so easy to travel through a terminal with drinks and snacks. Two slots fit water bottles, paper cups, and wrapped up food, so you can wheel your luggage and check texts without spilling anything. 

    Check it out on TikTok here.

    Promising review: "This cup holder is perfect! It helps me a lot! Last time I took a plane with a suitcase and a cup of coffee, I dropped and spilled my drink everywhere when it was my turn to check my passport and ticket. It was a nightmare! This time, I bought this cup holder to do me a favor! I don't have to worry about where my cup and phone are! I can free my hands to do other things. I love it so much! Hope you love it too." —Philip

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in 23 colors and patterns). 

    3. A Trtl neck pillow because you can finally rest in a plane seat without feeling uncomfortable. This cozy cocoon is adjustable, gently wraps around your neck, and prevents your head from bobbing side-to-side. Plus, it's space-saving, lightweight, and attaches to any luggage handle.

    BuzzFeed editor Ciera Velarde owns this comfy pillow and said: "I've used this for the past few years and swear by it! Before this, I always found traditional neck pillows uncomfortable and would end up ditching them halfway through the flight and getting frustrated. The Trtl pillow is adjustable — you wrap the pillow around your neck and secure it with Velcro, and if you find it's too loose, just make it a bit tighter! I've truly never slept better on a plane than with this pillow.

    Promising review: "Used it for a 14-hour flight to Japan last week, and it helped tremendously. This was the first time I was able to sleep on the plane so this helped tremendously. Definitely a must have for travel. It is very light so I was able to easily pack it in my under-the-seat wheeled trolley. I want to emphasize how much the light warmth of the fleece (and I don't like being hot) was just right to help me nod off to sleep. Since this is primarily for sitting upright in the seat or someone in the middle or the aisle seat, this was ideal for me. I just got back yesterday. Again I used it — this time for a 12-hour flight." —Ambience

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99 (available in three colors).

    4. And a pair of Mack's Earplugs that'll help you say, "buh-bye noise" if you're trying to catch up on some sleep. These little babies comfortably contour to the shape of your ear and help block out sounds, plus they stay in place. Even if the plane is taking off and your seat buddy is talking a little too loud, you'll still drift off to dreamland.

    Check them out on TikTok here.

    BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord swears by these and raves: "The moldable silicone of Mack's Earplugs contours easily to the shape of your ear to block out noise much more effectively than other foam or plastic varieties, and the noise reduction is so good that if I pair them with a white noise machine (or just like a white noise loop on Spotify) I genuinely don't hear noises from outside my room. Not only that, but once they're in place, they stay locked there until you decide to pull them out.

    Granted, I can still hear my alarm and like, if the fire alarm went off or something, I'd definitely wake right up. But noises that are distant and loud are pretty easily canceled out by these.

    I've also *loved* these for traveling — if you put these babies in on a plane not only does it help reduce some of the YIKES factor when the plane takes off (it's loud!!), but it cancels out the murmuring noises of passengers on the flight and makes it easier to get some shuteye."

    5. hands-free (rotating!) phone mount to turn your phone into a mini TV while you're traveling. It can mount on multiple surfaces, including tray tables, the arms of terminal seats, and luggage handles. Now you can stream Netflix or view videos whenever and wherever you want.

    Promising review: "I bought this nifty gadget about six months ago for a multi-leg, ultra-long-haul trip, and it more than held up the entire duration. I was able to finagle it to fit the tray tables on different planes, and like others, I find the height just nice when clamped onto a stowed tray table. It also works on my roller carry-on handle during layovers. However, I find myself using it a lot outside of travel too! Work-wise, I've clamped it onto my office desk shelving to hold my phone at eye level beside my computer. At home, I simply clamped it to a deck of cards, and it turns into a versatile stand that I can place on any flat surface. Heck, I've been using it to hold my phone comfortably at eye level while watching videos in bed. It's extremely well built, and I find myself fidgeting with it all the time. Thus far it still feels solid, and I don't anticipate breaking it any time soon. Even if it does break, I'll be happy to buy another one or two of it!" —Earendil

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    6. And an AirFly Pro wireless transmitter so you can watch movies and TV shows with your AirPods on flights. Plug it into the seat TV screen, connect your earbuds, and you'll be good to go. No more packing flimsy headphones or having to pay extra for a pair while you're on board.

    It also comes with a USB-C charging cable, travel pouch, keychain holder, quick-start guide, and a manual. Traveling with a family member or friend? They can also sync their earbuds to this gadget!

    See one TikTok user using it with their AirPod Pros here

    Promising review: "Ever since I purchased my wireless Bose earbuds, I always hated having to use another set when I was on an airplane with the seat-back entertainment system. I tried many different models to connect the system to my Bluetooth headsets until I came across this one, and it is amazing! It seamlessly connects to my headset, very clear and reliable audio, and it takes the stress away from having to carry multiple headsets! Thank you!!!" —Ryan Malloy

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in three styles).

    7. Tide To-Go stain removing pen that'll come to the rescue if you accidentally spill ketchup on your shoe or wine on a shirt. This pen is basically the definition of magic, because it'll help make stubborn stains *poof* disappear. Plus, it fits right in a jacket pocket or bag thanks to its small size!

    Promising review: "These were a lifesaver. I was walking to the bus and decided it was a great decision to drink coffee while walking. Like a scene from an infomercial, I spilled coffee all over my white shirt. Yes, the classic coffee on the white shirt. Luckily I had one of these in my bag (I put one in each of my most-used purses in anticipation of my clumsiness). I went into a store bathroom and quickly scrubbed the Tide To-Go on my shirt. All of the coffee blobs went away and once the awkward wet splotches dried up, my shirt was perfectly white again. You've got yourself a big fan, Tide." —NAD

    Get a 3-pack from Amazon for $7.74.

    8. An international power converter because with it, you can juice up your devices and plug them in without outlet issues. This handy essential, which works in 150+ countries, comes with four different sockets, a 5-foot detachable power cable, and voltage converters.

    See it in action on TikTok here

    Promising review: "Prior to this purchase, we've killed an appliance or two in overseas travel. We bought the Sokoo Power Converter for a trip to the Philippines. It worked like a champ! We charged our iPhones and other high-end devices with peace of mind. My wife used her flat iron with this just fine. I like that it has plug adapters for outlets around the world, so I know wherever we go we can use this. I recommend this to anyone doing international travel." —David Aiken

    Get it from Amazon for $41.98

    9. A genius backpack that's not your typical carryall, because it comes with cool features like a main compartment that fully unzips, a laptop sleeve, zippered pouches that'll easily fit toiletries, a roomy main compartment for four to five outfits, compression straps, and a trolley passthrough (a thick strap that loops around your suitcase handle) to make luggage transport a breeze.

    Béis is a woman-owned travel accessories brand founded by actress and entrepreneur Shay Mitchell. You'll find carry-on rollers, weekender bags, packing cubes, and more practical goods for your next trip!

    Check it out on TikTok here.

    BuzzFeed editor Chelsea Stuart owns this backpack and said: "I just bought this bag for a five-day cross-country road trip and it came in so clutch. First, I flew with it and was able to stow it under my seat so not only did I not have to check a bag, but I didn't even have to deal with overhead storage. Then, it traveled through 10+ states and various hotels with me. My absolute favorite parts of the bag are the compression straps and the fact that it fully unzips. This makes it *SO* easy to pack, unpack, and take through airport security. I was able to fit ~four pairs of leggings, four T-shirts, two sets of pajamas, two pairs of shorts, two bathing suits, a sweatshirt, a week's worth of undergarments, travel toiletries, an iPad, my wallet, and more odds and ends."

    Get it from Béis or Nordstrom for $78 (also available in black). 

    10. Or a nylon anti-theft backpack with a hidden storage compartment and versatile design. It has plenty of room for tech devices and snacks, and keeps them concealed thanks to zipper access from the back. You can also wear it two ways: as a backpack *or* shoulder bag, thanks to comfy straps.

    Promising review: "A must-have for traveling! This backpack is lightweight, has multiple pockets on the inside and outside for small items, and was so awesome for an eight-day vacation to Hawaii! Felt safe with my items in it and it was a great small personal item on the plane. Highly recommend!" —Marianne :]

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in two sizes and 15 colors).

    11. A luggage scale because it can easily weigh your suitcase (up to 110 pounds) to make sure it doesn't go over the limit. This handy gadget fits in a bag or pocket, so you can pull it out and check your luggage on the spot. You'll be relieved you didn't have to pay an overweight baggage fee at the airport.

    Check it out on TikTok here.

    Promising review: "This was a great buy! It’s saved me and my family time and money when we travel! I’ve even given it to friends to borrow so they don’t have to worry about the weight of their luggage when they get to the airport. It can be tricky to be accurate if you don’t hold it properly and stay still but even so, it’s possibly a pound or a few ounces off if you can’t hold it upright for too long. Definitely recommend this tool especially for the low price!" —Annette M.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (originally $16.99, available in six colors).

    12. A lightweight stroller designed to make traveling with tiny humans a breeze: It easily folds up into a portable handbag-shaped package and fits in plane overhead bins, meaning you can just carry it on and go. Other features include an adjustable seat for comfort, a UPF50+ sun canopy, and a roomy shopping basket area to hold belongings.

    This stroller only weighs 9.5 pounds and is designed for kids who are 6 months+ and weigh up to 55 pounds.

    Promising review: "The best stroller for traveling! We bought this on a whim for our last-minute trip to Houston. Our toddler is 2-years-old, and what a breeze this was to stroll through the airport and fold up so it can stow away under our seats on the plane. It is so compact, so easy, and my husband enjoys entertaining everyone and showing them how small it gets. If you have a little jet setter and fly frequently with a little one, I highly recommend!!" —Kimmie Paulo

    Get it from Amazon for $223.96 (originally $279.95+, available in two colors and three styles).

    13. A set of scrunchies with a discreet zipper that'll safely stash keys, lip balm, money, and other small essentials. You'll probably feel so much better knowing that they won't slip out of a pocket and get lost while you're traveling from the terminal, to your flight, and to the hotel.

    Promising reviews: "I bought this because of someone on TikTok who had purchased this. Extremely convenient and cute! They’re very soft, and I’ve been using mine to hold cash and lip balm. I wish there were more colors!" —Michaela

    "I bought these since I was going on a long vacation by myself. I rolled my money and was able to fit it inside the scrunchie. It’s soft, very stretchy and fits my wrist! I didn’t have any issues with the zipper. I wore it on my wrist all the time and put money/lip balm inside it. It worked great during my vacation. This would be perfect to stash some things inside!" —Jessica Sandoval

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $11.99 (available in two color combinations).

    14. A three-piece luggage set because you'll be prepared to pack for any type of trip, including weekend adventures *or* week-long vacations. You'll get a 28-inch large suitcase, a 24-inch medium suitcase, and a carry-on 20-inch suitcase for your travel needs. Each piece of luggage has a secure TSA lock and 360-degree wheels that'll make moving through the airport so darn easy.

    Promising review: "My family travels internationally which means lots of airplane transfers, rail, ferry loading and unloading. Each member has their own set. Only one cosmetic scuff has appeared. About to order another set for my mother as we are taking her to London, Scotland and Ireland for the holidays. We rarely use the middle size. The small size we carry on and the largest size we check. Very pleased with maneuvering and durability of wheels on various rough surfaces. The retractable handle makes for easy storage on ferries and railway. We’ve had zero issues with locking mechanism. We are a family of four with kids age 8 and 12." —ChiefLaughALot

    Get it from Amazon for $189.99+ (originally $299.99, available in 18 variations).

    15. And a stylish and durable travel belt that'll securely attach a large tote to your suitcase handle and keep it in place while you move through the airport. It'll be so nice to not have to stop, readjust your bags, and worry about anything falling out if you're already pressed for time.

    Promising review: "Such a simple yet brilliant solution for the ever falling bag when trying to juggle all your luggage. It definitely made traveling less stressful." —Samantha

    Get it from Cincha for $40 (available in 13 colors).

    16. A portable door lock for additional security if you're traveling alone. This tool stays in place and works with multiple doors, whether you're staying at an Airbnb or a hotel room. It's also easy to install and remove (no nails required).

    To install, put the metal part into the hole on the door jam, close the door, and place the handle into the lock. That's it!

    See it in action on TikTok here

    Promising review: "I brought this because I saw it on TikTok! I trust this more than the lock on my door (that my super has access to). I would recommend you buy this for traveling solo also and even for your bedroom door. I use this with a security bar also." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95.

    17. And a doorstop alarm that'll likely spook out anyone who tries to wiggle the handle open. Solo travelers swear by it for hotel stays and say it's loud (up to 120db). Set the alarm level (low, high, and medium sounds are available), place it in the gap between the bottom of the door and the floor, and that's it.

    Check it out on TikTok here.

    Promising review: "Loud little dude! Good for home and travel for hotel room doors. Sensitivity control and on/off switch. Be sure to measure from floor to bottom of door to make sure it will engage the alarm. After demonstrating it, my sister-in-law, niece, and mom wanted them. A little peace of mind for very little money." —Jim Walker

    Get a two pack from Amazon for $13.99 (originally $17.99, available in multiple packs).

    18. set of packing cubes to help you organize everything you packed in your suitcase. Pants, shirts, dresses...whatever you're wearing, these compact containers will hold them all without taking up a ton of space. 

    the set of packing cubes with different-sized cubes
    same packing cubes neatly stacked in a blue suitcase

    This set comes with an extra large cube, large cube, medium cube, small cube, roomy shoe bag, and a laundry bag for dirty clothes!

    Promising review: "I found out about the packing cubes on TikTok from a woman that travels all over and she mentioned these travel cubes and knew I had to get them. I travel and usually stay in one spot for more than a month so packing gets tricky. I can now pack more neatly and have more room for all the clothes I travel with." —Magen Vaughn

    Get a 6-piece set from Amazon for $20.99 (originally $25.99, available in 12 colors).

    19. A portable charger you'll probably sing praises for, because it doesn't require any cords. When your phone battery is running low, plug it into the dock and it'll instantly charge it up. The dock also powers up while it charges your phone, so both will be ready whenever you need them on a flight or vacation stay.

    Note: This small gadget can charge an iPhone 8 1.5 times and an iPhone X one full time on a single charge.

    Check it out on TikTok here

    Promising review: "The holy grail of portable chargers!!! I was traveling to Disney for vacation, and knowing me I would drain my battery with just taking pictures alone. I wanted a portable battery but didn’t want to carry a cord either, so I was excited when I found this little baby! It does exactly as described, pretty color, and I get one full charge of battery for my phone. Get it you will not be disappointed!" —Meghan Doble

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in six colors).

    20. A 16-piece travel toiletries set with all the bottles you'll need for hair, makeup, and skincare products. Instead of buying disposable travel-sized containers, you can fill these up with your go-to beauty goods. Each one is also TSA-friendly, so you won't have to second guess liquid amounts.

    You'll get four bottles, two jars, two spray bottles, two scoopers (to help transfer creams), one funnel (to help transfer liquids), one cleaning brush, a page of labels, and a bag that fits all the containers.  

    Check it out on TikTok here

    Promising review: "I’ve purchased a lot of different travel sets for my toiletries over the years. Inevitably, they are hard to fill and tend to leak. This set was magic! The wide mouth made it easy to fill from a larger bottle, and the little scoops made transferring creams to the jar containers very easy and with much less mess. The only con (hardly worth mentioning) is that once you squeeze the bottle, it takes a few minutes to expand with air again, so the sides are a bit sunken. I solved that by unscrewing the top just a bit for a quick release of the vacuum pressure. I had no leaks, and plenty of containers for every toiletry." —MDC

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (originally $22.58).

    21. And leakproof travel capsules for anyone who needs to bring lil' essentials on their next trip. These small, TSA-compliant vessels securely hold face creams, dainty jewelry, and vitamins and they have a cool, colorful design. They're also magnetic, so they'll stay together in a cosmetics bag or suitcase compartment.

    Cadence is a woman-owned small business specializing in personal care travel solutions. Each mini capsule is created from recycled ocean-bound plastic and is refillable and reusable!

    Check them out on TikTok here.

    BuzzFeed writer Jasmin Sandal uses these travel capsules and said: "I love my little containers that allow me to downsize but still carry my necessities while I'm traveling. They're not only cute to look at but they're pretty practical. I have used mine to store my vitamins, earrings, face cream and have not run into any issues. They have tight, screw-on tops so you know everything is secure *and* you can customize their labels so you know exactly what's in what. Oh, and the fact that they're magnetic? Genius. This way, they stay tightly together in your case or can be conveniently stored in a makeup bag." 

    Promising review: "This is my go to for all my travel, gym, camping trips. I can keep enough for four to five days of skincare. The best set I've had for carry-on toiletries." —Cadence Customer

    Get a set of six from Cadence for $76 (originally $84; available in individual capsules, bundles of three or six, and seven colors).
