Travel Essentials Woman edition for 2024: Packing for the Caribbean

21 Best Travel Essentials Woman Edition For Easy Travel (2024)

Unless you have unlimited luggage space or are heading directly to a one-stop destination for your travels, you might want to be smart about the packing and priorities of Travel Essentials Woman Edition for this next year of travel!

I have traveled full-time for over three years (through the pandemic and all, not a great time to start a traveler’s life). But! It worked out, and I learned a lot! So here I would like to share some of my cleverest clever travel essentials in this “woman edition” list for this travel season!

Having a travel kit of smart gadgets and accessories, organized and tailored to what you need, is critical (no less) for easy-peasy travels!

Here are gadgets and accessories I recommend, things you need to travel safely, comfortably, and smartly, control your luggage size, and bring a touch of your homey facilities while on the road.

Accessories & Travel Essentials Woman Travelers

1. Amazon Basics is a top-rated, 4-wheeled, hard-cased carry-on bestseller that will protect your belongings and is easy to roll along.

The inside is divided into 50/50 packing spaces on either side, it is spacious, the size is airline-approved and fits on all shelves, and you can skip past all the people waiting for luggage when you arrive at your destination!

2. A few months ago (spring 2023) I bought this BAGSMART Travel Duffle Bag as my carry-on medium bag completely disintegrated.

And I love this one! It is spacious and has dedicated space for a laptop and kit, room for my make-up, toiletries, 1-2 outfits (two for summer 😉 ) – and a book, magazine, chargers, and stuff! Great for an overnight and the flight!

No products found.

3. This delicate soft set Bagail travel packing cube set bestseller keeps your items organized in categories and fits any type of luggage.

As a long-term solo traveler, I have realized how much easier my life gets with this packing set! Makes both packing and unpacking easy, and coupled with the laundry bag below, both your clean and dirty clothes are in great hands!

Air Travel Essentials

4. A super compact thing when packed, this inflatable pillow kit with an eye mask and ear plugs is perfect! Works for long flights, train trips, waiting in a bus station somewhere in South America, or whenever you need to relax comfortably in an uncomfortable place.

No products found.

5. The Bose noise-canceling headphones are simply amazing!

I got mine via my 9-5 work (so not “sponsored”), but I am such a fan I still want to recommend these for your journeys (or even listening to things at home).

No products found.

6. For long flights, you might want to consider wearing compression stockings, if you are anything like me, after a 10-plus hour flight, my calves and feet simply blow up to twice the size!

These are cheap, thin, and comfy, good for your blood flow, and also prevent a couple of days’ worth of swollen long-haul feet!

No products found.

Eco-Travel Essentials

7. A filtered water bottle will make sure you have access to clean water wherever you are. It is convenient for travel in remote areas and also environmentally friendly.

I have the Life Straw that I use every day when traveling to avoid buying expensive and disposable plastic bottles!

No products found.

8. Eco-friendly toothbrush set! This might seem like a small thing, but just think about how many plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every day!

This toothbrush is eco-friendly in itself and also provides no harmful waste when it is time to throw it away!

No products found.

9. Clever, reusable, washable, and durable shopping bags for groceries at home or holiday shopping on the road.

These will ensure that you don’t need to use harmful plastic bags on your journeys. It takes up no space when empty and can carry a lot!

Travel Essentials Skin Care

10. A hydrating face mist is super both on long flights and also for a refresher during the day.

I use this one from Clinique; it is super hydrating and not irritating for the skin, and it also comes in travel-friendly sizes!

No products found.

11. When you spend holidays outdoors exploring, often in water, you need a really good face SPF!

I use this one from Shiseido, which is lightweight yet water-resistant, dries quickly, and covers perfectly (hardly any tan!). It also gets loads of great reviews, so apparently, it is not just me!

No products found.

12. If you want to avoid checking in luggage but still want to bring along your favorite skincare products, this travel kit with empty refillable bottles is great.

Approved for carry-on luggage in a neat see-through bag, squeezable and leakproof – and affordable!

No products found.

Travel Pharmacy Essentials

13. When visiting unknown places, bringing a small pharmacy emergency kit can be a lifesaver. You need stuff like painkillers, plasters, stomach pills, and a bit of handy first aid stuff that you cannot bring from your home drawers.

This travel pharmacy is compact, easy to organize (and see-through), contains the most necessary products, and can be refilled or adjusted to your needs!

No products found.

Long Journeys Essentials

14. For longer journeys, it can be smart with luggage that you can pick up and carry.

I have used the Osprey Farpoint 80 for over three years, and I love the design, quality, and space! If that is too big for you, Osprey Farpoint comes in smaller versions with the same smart design and great quality!

No products found.

15. Bring laundry bags instead of lots of luggage on long journeys!

These are washable, lightweight, and expandable laundry bags with drawstrings and zippers, take no space when empty, and delicately keep your clean stuff protected from dirties!

No products found.

Solo Travel Safety Essentials

16. For personal safety, the Alphahom Care Go Personal Alarm has been rated one of the top 5 personal alarms. It is not a traditional sounding alarm but a device you can connect to a number of emergency contacts via your phone.

Their alarm will sound immediately if you activate the SOS function on your device, which means it will call assistance if you are in a remote area where a sounding alarm would not do you any good. It also details your location in real-time!

Beach & Summer Travel Essentials

17. A waterproof pouch for phones and valuables is incredibly handy if you are heading for warmer destinations. I cannot live without this one when I am traveling the world solo with no one to watch my stuff!

You never need to leave your phone, money, or valuables on the beach or poolside. Also great for fresh adventures like rafting, tubing, or canyoning!

No products found.

18. For any journey, a compact travel-size microfiber towel is incredibly clever to bring! I love it, it dries in a flash, takes no space, and is great for the beach, mountains, or for a quick fresh-up on the road (like when your flight is delayed and you do your thing in an airport bathroom).

No products found.

Sun visor for women that is neat and easily packable, and you can attach it to your handbag when you are out and about. This protects you from the sun on the heaviest days or hours of the day!

Must-Have Tech Travel Essentials

19. I don’t know if you are an Android person, but I love my iPhone 14 PRO (an upgrade from the 13 PRO)!

The main reason is the incredible photos it takes; most of the photos in my articles here are taken with the iPhone 14 PRO. Several extensive reviews agree with me, luckily!

20. If you know, you will have long transport periods or without electricity, a power bank will come in very handy.

The Mophie Powerstation is a bit big but will recharge your phone around four times! An excellent travel companion for our gadget-filled adventures.

No products found.

21. Consider buying a VPN service before some journeys. For any travel when you will use unsecured networks, a VPN is smart to install.

For Cuba, it is more like a necessity. While in Cuba, you will be blocked from a range of pages and services without a good VPN, so I highly recommend you get one! I use the Express VPN, which puts me where I want to be and helps me access the services I need.

In Cuba in 2022, there are a lot of things that are simply not available for purchase for domestic and external reasons.
