We’ve all earned a break after this past winter’s long, miserable season of short days and freezing temperatures. This may involve traveling to a faraway, stunningly gorgeous location or taking a trip to a more local, relaxing venue.

Nevertheless, if you experience any of the following situations in a foreign airport, none of this will seem nearly as paradise-like: misplacing your passport, struggling with damaged luggage, or losing your luggage entirely. Avoiding these problems requires forward planning, thorough research, and, of course, buying useful travel gear.

While packing for a trip, it can be difficult to determine what is truly important and what is just something you want to bring along for the ride. But what if we told you that you don’t need to compromise convenience for style or vice versa?

Here are some must-have travel accessories that will make your life easier and make a statement wherever your next adventure takes you, be it across the nation or down the road:

Passport cover

One of the best ways to prevent your passport from getting misplaced or falling into the wrong hands is to store it in a secure and organized place. This is where passport covers become a must-have travel accessory. Passport holders or covers are as useful as a reliable wallet for travelers. Plus, these covers come in various designs and materials. You can choose a design that reflects your style or gives a message about the type of traveler you are.

A passport cover is like a book jacket. Generally, there will be pockets on both sides of the cover for you to tuck your passport’s first and last pages into. It’s a practical way of keeping the document in pristine condition. The Pop Art Passport Cover above is a great option if you need a sturdy yet stylish holder for your passport that won’t add too much bulk to your luggage. Protect your passport in style and ease with this case manufactured from premium PU leather and featuring a trendy, retro design.

Luggage tag

Luggage gets misplaced more often than you think, but if you have a baggage tag on it, it will be much easier for the airline to return your lost item to you. If an airline misplaces your suitcase, they may easily find you thanks to the information you provide on the tag.

Baggage tags are external accessories, often fastened to the bag’s handle or strap. Of course, you can attach it anywhere on the bag as long as it is visible and noticeable. This Cool Cat  Luggage Tag by Serenity Trends will ensure that your bags are easily identifiable in a crowded baggage claim. This stylish baggage tag is crafted from long-lasting polyester and accented with a grey canvas clasp.

Everyone has her own must-haves when it comes to personal care products to bring on a trip. Some people prepare for skincare emergencies by packing an arsenal of anti-aging creams, sunblock, and serums.

Others bring a ton of cosmetics. And then there are those who only pack the bare essentials like shampoo, toothbrushes, and toothpaste.  No matter what your must-haves may be, having the correct makeup bag is essential for preventing spillage in your baggage and keeping your belongings neat and tidy while you’re on the road.

This drawstring Makeup Organizer Pouch is perfect if you’re in need of a space-saving solution to carry and store your various cosmetics and skincare products. This compact cosmetics case is available in three different designs: bright pink flamingos, navy blue with white feathers, or a classic pink and white striped pattern.

Makeup bags are usually rectangular, but this one opens up to a wide circular compartment where you can keep your moisturizers, eyeliners, lipsticks, bath products, and other beauty essentials. To close the bag, simply draw the string and fold the Velcro flap closure.

Glasses case

Are you going to a destination with sunny skies for days? Perhaps you plan on lunging at a beach? No matter where you’re going, you need to make sure your shades or prescription glasses are safe and protected from scratches. A glasses case is perfect for keeping your glasses scratchless while they hang out in your bag.  It’s a lightweight accessory that won’t take up much room in your suitcase but will make sure your glasses are always handy while you’re out and about.

Lightweight and stylish, the Plants PU Leather Hard Glasses Caseabove features a daffodil design and is perfect for protecting your sunglasses on the go. If you’re transitioning to prescription eyewear, it can also store your reading glasses. This case’s magnetic snap latch and premium PU leather construction make it a breeze to open and close. Moreover, it folds flat when you take your glasses out, so it won’t take up much space in your suitcase.
