Summer is a pretty awesome time. It’s full of perfect weather, barbeques, and days at the beach or pool! With any summer comes the inevitable vacation with your friends or family. Maybe you’re taking a road trip across the United States, or flying to an awesome island! (That would be pretty awesome)

It’s all about the perfect getaway, but the fun isn’t just in the vacation or trip, it’s also in the planning process! There’s so many tips and tricks out there, so here’s a few from Yogibo to you!

  1. Set up an awesome music playlist. It’s not a vacation without some jams in the background. Whether it’s blasting in your headphones or through the car speakers, it guarantees the start of a good time.
  2. Stop forgetting things! Make a list of stuff you’ll need and keep it in front of you at all times while you pack. This way you’re not running to a store once you unpack and realize you don’t have that phone charger you left as you ran out the door!
  3. Bring a trash bag for dirty clothes. This way it helps empty your suitcase throughout the trip as you put dirty clothes into a separate trash bag.
  4. Sunscreen is very important. No matter who you are, you need to protect yourself from the Sun’s harmful rays. Be sure to pack the right SPF!
  5. Pack some chewing gum for any flights. It helps relieve the “popping” sensation in your ears brought on by the air pressure!
  6. Take naps. Vacation is a time to relax, and even if you want to spend it going crazy at theme parks or resorts, you do need to rest for a bit. We recommending using the Yogibo Nap, an awesome travel pillow with a removable, washable cover. Our Mini Rolls are perfect for this as well. Perhaps you want to sleep on the plane? Our Yogibo Nap X is perfect for that, featuring an eye mask!
  7. Make road trips comfortable. Odds are if you’re a passenger in a road trip, you’re going to be sitting in the same spot for many hours. There’s no reason you have to be uncomfortable! Our ZippaRoll is a versatile, multifunctional travel pillow. You can zip it around your seat belt (as a passenger, of course) and relax a bit. You can even zip it flat and use it for some added back support.
  8. Make sure you have the right pillows, gadgets and accessories to make the miles fly by. Of course, our Travel Accessories offer the ultimate in creating a comfortable, enjoyable experience. Whether you’re travelling by plane, train or automobile, Yogibo is there to make your trip more awesome. Need more incentive?

The winter was tough, so you deserve to make this summer as great as possible. Follow these steps and you’re well on your way to a road trip you’ll never forget!
