It’s that time of year again. Winter is in full swing here in Australia which means people are ditching the cool weather to enjoy warmer days on the other side of the world. And whilst there are SO many things to get excited about when it comes to international travel, for most of us, the long-haul flight is not one of them. The good news is that with a little planning and the right in-flight travel essentials, you’d be surprised at how much of a difference it can make to your overall experience. Here, we round up some of our non-negotiables in the way of health, wellness, fashion and beauty that’ll have you feeling like you’ve upgraded to business class (ahem, minus the leg room). Oh, and we promise they’ll make it past security! 

Hydroflask Water Bottle

Designed to keep your cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot, you can even use it to enjoy tea for extra hydration points.

The Daily Bar

the daily bar snacks
What we love most about The Daily Bar’s range of organic snacks is that unlike many snacks on the market, they aren’t made with dates which makes them a great low-sugar snack option. They’re full of only good-for-you ingredients such as flax meal for digestive health (very important when you’re on a plane), nuts, seeds, hemp as well as essential vitamins and minerals. Choose from a variety of delicious flavours including our favourites, salted caramel and mango coconut.
