Luxury travel accessories: 15 of the best to shop now

Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, luxury travel accessories elevate every trip, making the journey more enjoyable and the destination dreamier.

It doesn’t matter if you’re flying in First or Business class, no one enjoys being sequestered inside a less-than-spacious cabin for hours on end. However, such accommodations are easily endured when armed with a selection of luxurious travel accessories. Similarly, a hotel, residence, resort or villa is made more homely when furnished with a curated collection of personalised commodities.

Watch case

Whether you prefer a classic or statement timepiece, there’s no denying that a watch can elevate any outfit, taking you from day to night with one accessory. Try the Specialty watch case, $3360, from Rimowa.

Slippers & eye mask

Toasty toes and soothing darkness are required for catching z’s on a plane. Invest in a delightful comfort set to ensure your mile-high experience is a restful one. Our top pick is the comfort kit travel pouch set, $1500, from Dolce & Gabbana.

Sunglass chain

Keep your sunglasses on you at all times with a snazzy chain that looks and feels like jewellery. The Sunset Pearls chain in Yellow Gold, $600, from Frame Chain, is a fantastic choice.

Fedora

Tina M Copenhagen’s Paris Fedora is the ultimate in sophistication. It will take its wearer from a lazy lunch, to an afternoon beach party and beyond. Crafted with Ivory Flexibrand, the Paris Fedora is lightweight, breathable, crush-resistant, packable, travel-friendly, and resistant to rain and colour fading. It is also SPF50+ for maximum sun protection. $120.

Keep a close eye on your luggage without compromising style by adding an Apple AirTag in Hermès bag charm, $479, from Hermès, to your luxury travel accessories list.

Inflatable ring

Fun in the sun is a requirement when holidaying in tropical locales. Be sure to bring along an inflatable ring for floating in the pool, such as the Crete de Fleur inflatable float, $340, from Versace.

Portable closet

Luggage with an interior designed to emulate a closet makes getting dressed and staying organised a breeze, no matter how busy your holiday is. Pick up the 19 Degree aluminum rolling trunk, $2,850, from Tumi.

Neck pillow

Silk is durable, thermoregulating, hypoallergenic and gentle on the delicate skin of the face and neck. Naturally, a Slip silk neck pillow is the luxury travel accessory of choice for skincare-conscious jet setters. Our favourite is the Bon Voyage Jet Setter travel pillow, $139, from Slip.

Garment bag

Should you be travelling for an event or special occasion, a garment bag is usually in tow. Add a little something extra to the ordinary with a reusable garment bag, such as the La Greca travel garment bag, $1180, from Versace.

Travel jewellery box

Ensure earrings, necklaces, bracelets and bangles all remain in pristine condition while on the road by storing them safely inside a luxury travel accessories jewellery box, such as this box in Panama pink, $745, from Smythson.

Travel size cosmetics

Travelling with a full cosmetic spread is cumbersome. Downsize your kit to the bare essentials, and invest in a miniature makeup brush set, such as the magnetic Rae Morris travel set, $489, from Mecca, sure to be one of your prettiest luxury travel accessories yet.

Passport cover

Frequent flyers will know all too well how much damage a well-used passport can acquire in a 10-year lifespan. Protect your travel documents with a quietly luxurious travel accessory such as Bottega Veneta’s passport case in black, $630.

Phone bag

When gallivanting around a foreign city, it’s undesirable to be weighed down by heavy handbags or backpacks. All anyone really needs is their phone and wallet. Fortunately, Prada has the perfect luxury travel accessory for such adventures, the leather shoulder bag with pouch in black, $4300.

Noise-cancelling headphones

Immerse yourself in your favourite music or atmospheric sounds without the drone of the plane interrupting the aural ambience with noise-cancelling headphones that look as good as they perform. We love the white and gold combination of the Beoplay H95 Ultimate over-ear headphones, $1650, from Bang & Olufsen.

Airpods case

No one likes to hold their phone while talking on it. Ensure your holiday is hands-free by keeping your AirPods within easy reach with a clip-on-anything case. This press stud AirPods case in pink, $275, from Mulberry, is just the ticket.
