2. Medical kit - Whether at home or travelling, a first aid kit or kit has been one of the most useful yet underrated items in many cases. Usually, people do not realize its significance until they experience a medical emergency. So, it's a good idea to carry some pain killers along with basic first-aid essentials including bandages, antiseptic disinfectant liquid, antibacterial creams, small scissors etc. Don't forget inhalers, allergy medicine and insulin, if needed/prescribed by your doctor. ( Towfiqu barbhuiya) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

3. Germ protection wipes - While travelling via road or air, you come in contact with multiple surfaces that will be handled by others too. Also, there are instances where one does not have access to water. A germ protection wipe will come in super handy for this. Get one which is easy to carry and is re-sealable. A travel pack of germ protection wipes would be perfect to clean away the germs from your mobile phone, wallet, chair arms and any other surface. The best part? The wipes are truly multi-purpose: safe to use on hands, body and surface (glass, marble, wood, plastic, and stainless steel) even gadgets. Germ protection wipes have a skin-friendly pH. They are soft and gentle on skin. (Pexels) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

4. Comfortable car seats or cushions - Depending on your child (and age), some parents are more comfortable with the child in their car seat during the flight. Being in their car seat can bring them a level of familiarity and can even be comfortable enough to fall asleep. (Reuters Photo) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout
