Must-Have Travel Technology to Elevate Your Flying Experience

Whether you’re planning a family trip or preparing to jet set abroad for work, there’s no doubt that a comfortable flight is key. And no matter if you’re flying business class or coach, these high-technology, modern carry-on items can help give you a first-class travel experience with convenience, comfort and style at the forefront.

Staying Comfy

Between cramped quarters, turbulence and stuffy air, it can be tough to get comfortable — let alone get some sleep — on an airplane. However, the ostrich pillow has made that easier. Designed to keep you relaxed and restful in your very own mini sleep station, this pillow is a must for anyone who wants to nap in-flight. The interesting plush design may make heads turn, but it won’t matter … you’ll be fast asleep in your own private, noiseless, lightless sanctuary. And to keep your tootsies warm and comfortable, the ThermaCELL Heated Insoles are a must have. Instilled with cutting-edge technology and remote controlled, these new age foot warmers also keep feet free of moisture with its temperature control system and water-resistant lining.

Staying Connected

Aside from in-flight TV and movies, the latest tablets are both entertaining and efficient. Now thinner and lighter than ever, tablets like the iPad Pro let you do everything you can do on a laptop as well as catch up on all of those books and magazines on your to-read list with a powerful battery life. With the ability to connect anywhere, even in the air, it’s important to have a premier smart phone and cell phone plan that can go the distance. T-Mobile offers both, with family plans that include unlimited international calling in over 30 countries, unlimited 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot, Unlimited HD video streaming and unlimited in-flight Wi-Fi on Gogo-enabled flights, there really is no better cell phone carrier that can handle your smartphone needs during travel.

And, in addition to your smart phone, how about smart luggage? Yes, even your luggage has gotten smarter, and smart luggage is a hot ticket item in luxury travel technology. With built-in tech like charging stations, location tracking and its very own luggage scale to ensure your bag meets the weight requirement, smart luggage can save you time and headaches in a variety of ways along your travels.

Recovering from Travel

Travel of any kind can be exhausting. But the key is to plan ahead on the recovery. Luckily, this jet lag calculator provides you with tips to get back to 100 percent with a plan customized just for you. The free tool is particularly useful for those who need a vacation after the vacation. And for a boost of energy and rejuvenation during and after the flight, Boost Oxygen and Evian Facial Spray are a must. With the abundance of stale air circulating in planes, your body and face can feel the effects of a long flight. Boost Oxygen revives your cells with a blast of 95 percent pure oxygen that you can inhale whenever you need a pick-me- up. And Evian Facial Spray gives your face a dose of mineral water essential for supple, hydrated skin. Both come in convenient travel sizes.

At the end of the day, the type of modern carry-on items that work for you is up to you. But knowing the latest “it” trends can certainly help you to figure out how to make your travel more relaxing and enjoyable.
