While an ergonomic pillow, eyeshades and compression socks may help you have a restful flight, there are other travel accessories that are designed to make you feel even better while traveling for hours or days at a time. But let’s face it, sometimes, regardless of which class we’re sitting in, comfort is always in our minds which is why these travel accessories can be the best ones you’ve ever invested in. So what are they?

Airplane blankets can be itchy, small and paper thin, even in business class on some airlines, which is why bringing your own may be the best option. But lugging around a large blanket is not only inefficient but can also take up a lot of room. Comfort Plus has designed a fleece blanket measuring 60 by 48 inches, large enough to keep anyone warm. The blanket can be rolled up and placed inside its carrying case which has a strap to place over your carry-on handle or inside your bag. Once rolled up, the blanket measures 15 by 5 by 5 inches. Aside from being a blanket, this best travel accessory can also be used as a pillow or neck roll.
