From a scarf that doubles up as a neck cushion to a laptop charger the size of a lipstick: The innovative new travel gadgets you need this summer

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.

2. The theft-proof drawstring bag

The Flak Sack - which is crafted from slash resistant fabric and secured with a steel lock - can be attached to your chair by a near indestructible cable and protects again contactless credit card theft
