We have nothing against Cheetos and soda, but we prefer our vending machines stocked with wholesome treats and handy products—especially when we’re on the road. Automatic kiosks at airports, which began popping up in hubs around the world in the late 2000s and have since become quite common, offer an array of useful products available at the push of a button. It’s an interesting concept: Travelers can feel less frantic about forgetting to pack some essential thing because they know that a vending machine will readily dispense a phone charger or some mascara. And the kiosks, for the most part, stay open around the clock.

Here are seven awesome airport vending machines that could prove quite convenient on your next trip. 

We hand-pick everything we recommend and select items through testing and reviews. Some products are sent to us free of charge with no incentive to offer a favorable review. We offer our unbiased opinions and do not accept compensation to review products. All items are in stock and prices are accurate at the time of publication. If you buy something through our links, we may earn a commission.
