Travel accessories have been designed by many companies to make our trips anywhere more comfortable and enjoyable. For comfort, there are wonderful travel pillows and blankets. The pillows are available in foam or with micro beading. There are also inflatable models that will take up little or no room in your lightweight luggage. The inflatable models come in assorted styles with all types of different outside covering. The blankets designed for travel are small, taking up little room but will afford you much comfort on the trip. Inflatable back pillows will also give those with bad backs more comfort. And you never know when those airline blankets were cleaned last! For children, there are blankets in their own soft backpack case, which can also be used as a pillow!
