The Quick Guide To Travelling In Style (And Comfort)

They say, ‘it’s not the destination, it’s the journey.’ But when you’re packed on a £20 budget airline flight with a screaming child kicking your seat on your way to your chosen summer holiday destination, it’s safe to say you probably won’t be enjoying the journey. 

While there’s not much that can be done about your aisle neighbours, there are things you can do to help make travelling a lot more comfortable, while still maintaining your impeccable style. Get ready to enhance your travel comfort with the help of the following tips.

Plan your travel outfit carefully

Whether you’re facing a 2-hour or 24-hour round trip, plane journeys can be uncomfortable. There’s going to be little movement during this time, and you’ll want to make sure that you’re comfortable throughout the flight – otherwise, your flight will feel like the longest journey in the world. 

Dress for comfort, but remember to layer up too. Some men’s wide leg trousers are perfect for travelling, giving you plenty of room to breathe during your flight. If they have a tie waistband, even better. You might want to wear some of your heavier items (jackets, hoodies, etc.) for your flight to help save you some luggage space, just make sure they’re easy to remove.

Put plenty of essentials in your hand luggage

It’s nice to feel fresh on a flight, and taking some hand luggage essentials will help you stay feeling clean and cool, so that when you arrive at your destination, you’re ready to start enjoying yourself. Pack items like your toothbrush and some toothpaste, deodorant, cleansing wipes and maybe some moisturiser and face wash if you want to refresh yourself during your flight.

Distract yourself from the noise

Aeroplanes can have a lot of distractions, especially if you’re on a busy flight. Finding ways to distract from the noise can help make your flight more enjoyable, so that you can enjoy a more pleasant flight. Noise-cancelling headphones are a great idea to help you tune out the surrounding noise, and an eye mask is also a worthwhile investment for any flight. Keep the noise out for a stress-free flight.

Be sensible with your footwear choice

Travelling requires sensible footwear. You’re probably going to want to avoid flip-flops and other impractical shoes when you’re rushing around an airport. Stick with something practical like a pair of trainers and make sure you wear socks – other passengers will not take kindly to smelling your feet!

The key to travelling in style is to prepare in advance and pack wisely. A decent travel bag also helps. Dressing for comfort doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your look, so choose items you know are easy to wear but still look great. The journey may be the least enjoyable part of your trip, but at least you know you’ll look good when you arrive at your destination.
