I love traveling. Whether for work or for fun, domestic or international, to explore or to relax, I love being able to explore new places and see (and eat) new things. Since college, I’ve been incredibly fortunate to be able to travel, thanks partly to going to graduate school overseas, and with “travel hacking,” making the most of frequent flyer miles, credit card points, and abnormally low airfare to make travel more affordable.
As I’ve gotten more experience traveling, I’ve started bringing less and less with me on each trip. I’ve gotten more comfortable leaving that extra pair of jeans home, or that third pair of shoes.
However, there are still a few things that I always bring with me on every trip. When it comes down to it, being somewhere different is great, but there are challenges, too. From packing everything in accordance with your airline’s rules, to keeping up with your beauty routine while living out of a small dopp kit, I asked the rest of the Insider Picks team for their must-have items when they hit the road — things that make traveling easier, more comfortable, more efficient, or cheaper.
Take a look below at 25 of our favorite travel essentials.
