Travel – nourishing for the soul but not without its pitfalls.
Whether it’s cramming your worldly essentials into a small suitcase, getting around the 100ml hand luggage limits or even just getting comfortable on the plane, it’s pretty easy to lose your temper en-route to your destination.
Thankfully, this year has seen an explosion of new gadgets and gizmos designed to make your voyages easier – from portable pillows and theft-proof bags to multi-functioning chargers and a device which means you’ll never lose your passport again. MailOnline Travel rounds up the best of them.
1. The neck-supporting scarf
Bog standard neck pillows may be better than nothing on a long-haul flight, but they’re not the first word in comfort.
Enter the Trtl Travel Pillow – a neck support hidden inside a snuggly fleece scarf. Its designers claim that its flexible ‘hammock effect’ structure is scientifically proven to hold the head and neck in a better ergonomic position than a traditional U-shaped pillow.
Having taken it on a 30-hour flight, this writer can confirm that it’s a game-changer.
Cost: £19.95 ($26.75) from Trtl London.
