Hence making the list of technical equipment that must be carried with you while traveling, a power bank is one of the items that will help if your battery dies while on the plane or in an area that is without charging points. A pair of headphones, and a universal travel adaptor as not all countries have a similar charging point, so carrying a universal adapter will help you get saved from your phone dying.
Apart from this, a luggage scale is also a necessity now when the flights have a luggage limit you can carry.
Better safe than sorry
You must carry items like medicines and sanitizers that will protect you against germs and other reactions that your body may show. One of the most important items is a medical kit that must include medicine for headaches, stomach aches, vomiting, diarrhea, allergy, and a pain relief spray. The kit should also have some band-aids and bandages that help you in case of an accident and an antiseptic like Dettol.
