The 23 Best Travel Accessories for Type-A Personalities


If you’re like me and have a small panic attack at the thought of packing for a trip, then these travel accessories are for you. Not only do they keep your suitcase and items organized, they’ll make packing easier for every trip.

The Best Travel Accessories for Stress-Free Packing

Packing Cubes


Packing cubes are an overwhelmed traveler’s best friend. They help with outfit organization, folding, and fitting everything in your suitcase. Plus, once at your accommodations, all you have to do is unzip the packing cubes and neatly place their contents in the dresser.

I recommend these two from Amazon:



Like packing cubes, organizational pouches are great packing hacks for folding and organizing clothes.

Undergarment Organizer


Undergarments can take up precious packing space, and just throwing them in your suitcase risks damaging or tearing the delicate material.

Here are two travel organizers specifically made for packing undergarments:

Toiletry Bag


If you travel with lots of travel-sized beauty and toiletry products, you might want to make sure they stay organized and don’t spill out.

These three travel organizers are ideal for storing and traveling with toiletries:

Electronic Cord Organizer 


Every time I take a trip it seems like I’m packing more and more electronics.

To help manage your devices and chargers, I recommend traveling with a cord organizer like these:

Pill Organizers


If you’re traveling with medication, a pill organizer can save space and help keep your medications organized.

These two travel accessories are great for both prescription medication or for a traveler’s first-aid kit:

Passport Wallet


Keep your boarding pass, passport, money, cards, and identification all in one place to streamline your time at the airport.

I love these three travel organizer options:

Car Seatback Organizer


For busy families and those who take frequent road trips, a seatback organizer is one of the best travel accessories out there:

Laptop Case


Help organize business travel items with a travel organizer laptop case.

These two bags fit everything in one compact space:

Bags and Luggage


These bags and luggage make packing and organizing a breeze:
