Best Travel Accessories For Family Vacations

Updated on June 24, 2013

Travel Products To Bring On The Your Trip

When we are ready to go on our trip we want to be prepared with the best travel accessories for our family vacation that will make our days comfortable. As packing usually starts days before, my favorite thing to do is make lists of all the things that I need and then all the things my family will need. Each of us will have our own list of things but I always try to remember the travel products to bring on the trip that no one else will think of. Depending on where you're headed, your list will be affected. Will you need warm clothes or cool clothing, dressy clothes or casual?

Will you camp, stay in a bed and breakfast, a hotel, friends or families home? All of these will help determine what to bring on your trip.

Making a list of Travel Accessories Necessary For The Trip

The travel accessories necessary will depend on several things. Who is going, how long will you be gone, where are you going?...etc...etc...

Here's my suggestions. Go from room to room in your house first trying to decide what you need to bring that you use on a daily basis. Start in the bathroom and get the list going with all the travel products you will need to include that are used in the bathroom. Shampoo, soap, brushes, curling iron, shaving cream and razors. Making a list of travel accessories necessary for the trip will be very important. Whatever it is that you will need to bring on the trip, put it on the list. I always pack a separate bag with just bathroom travel products because if we stay over somewhere, I don't want to have to dig through everything just to find those travel products when they could all be at my fingertips in the one bag.

The second room I go to to make my list is the bedroom. On that list of travel accessories, I put these things: I usually want jewelry, shoes, clothing, pillows, anything that I can't live without from the bedroom.

Next room is the kitchen. Do I want to bring any supplies from the kitchen like water bottles, can opener, plastic cups, forks, spoons or knives. Of course depending on what type of trip we are taking, I may need to bring more kitchen type supplies as travel products if it is a camping trip. Snacks and drinks may be necessary for the car ride. Certain types of food and drink may be necessary depending on who will be going with you on the trip such as small children, babies or older adults.

After I have been through all the rooms and finalized my travel accessories list, I need to make sure I know where and how these things can be packed.

Time To Figure Out How To Pack Your Travel Accessories

When it's time to go, you will need to figure out how to pack your travel accessories and most likely it will be time to cut the list down a bit. A variety of small bags and larger bags usually workout best. Small bags for things you may want to get to easily, larger bags for the travel accessories that you won't need as much.

Packing like this has worked very well for me.

Small bags - Bathroom products and toiletries


Snacks, food and drinks for the car

business items

purse - filled with mints, gum, extra batteries, bandaids, pens, this type of thing

Large bags - clothing

extra coats

recreational equipment - basketball, frisbee, tennis rackets etc



There are several places to buy travel bags that are just perfect for small and large trips. Sometimes having the right bags can make a huge difference. So take a few of these tips if you like them and be prepared with travel products for your family vacation.

The best and easiest way to pack is by using one bag if possible however if not one bag and one smaller bag such as a carry-on type bag is ideal.

The best travel accessories are bags that serve the purpose of your trip. The other accessories that will be important to not forget are things like cell phones, Ipads or laptop computers and possibly a GPS so you can get to your destination.

Shopping before your trip for the best possible travel bags may be a good idea to help keep yourself organized and comfortable.
