As you are gathering all of the travel needs you think you may need, it is wise to be sure you actually grab the true essentials. Not only should these items be packed they should be easily accessible. It is wise to bring a first aid kit with you on any travel but it is a necessity when taking a long trip, whether it be one in the car, train, bus, or plane. One can never be to prepared in the event of a mishap.
The next few items are going to be pretty obvious if they are something you will need for your trip or not. Earplugs for swimming, having swimmers ear on vacation is a sure fire way to ruin a wonderful time. For the ones that are going on an air plane some Jet Lag pills. Even if you have not had jet lag in the past, you may end up with it this time. Wouldnt you rather be safe than sorry? For those that maybe taking a cruise, you might want to get some motion sickness pills. Again, even if you have not been sea sick in the past it is completely possible to get it in the future.
Travel hand sanitizer. Think about it for just a minute, yes you agree. Hand sanitizer is an excellent product to have on hand all of the time. Wet naps or baby wipes are also great for those little mishaps you can have especially if you have any children.
By far the absolute most important items to keep in your carry on if going on a plane toothbrush, toothpaste, and deodorant. You may be thinking why, I have it packed in my luggage? Well, there is your answer. On occasion the airlines do lose luggage, and you would want to have back up hygiene products just in case.
