Milesopedia team’s favorite travel accessories

To the point We asked our team members what they absolutely must bring when traveling. So here are some of our travel essentials!

Getting the right gear sets you up for success when traveling, but it’s often hard to know what to bring until you’ve done some trial and error. After traveling the world, the Milesopedia team has several essentials to share with you. Discover them here.

Travel accessories - Suitcases, bags and airplane luggage

Because, of course, you have to start with a suitcase or a bag, your choice will depend on many factors, such as :

  • the duration of your trip and what you need to bring,
  • your destination and transportation from one place to another,
  • whether or not you wish to travel with checked baggage,
  • what you want to bring back as souvenirs, etc.

Within the team, we tend to favor carry-on luggage, which saves us money on plane tickets as well as precious time at the airport, allowing us to enjoy the VIP lounges for longer or simply get to our destination faster.


  • As a digital nomad, Marie-Ève loves this Osprey 46 L backpack, which is both ergonomic and very roomy, and fits on every flight as carry-on baggage.
  • If you prefer a wheeled option, Alexandrine recommends the Samsonite Outline Pro cabin case, with its integrated lock, USBC port and sturdy construction.
  • As for high-end brands, we recommend Away, Monos or, of course, the timeless Rimowa.

Personal item

As hand luggage, Alexandrine loves this colorful Cotopaxi backpack, which offers enough space for her laptop, headphones and all her electronic cables and accessories. For the same purpose, Marie-Ève loves this durable, spacious and versatile lululemon backpack.

Luggage organizer

Having well-organized luggage makes it easier to get through airport security, avoid losing anything and save time exploring destinations. Here are travel accessories that save us space, time and enhance our experience.

  • Storage cubes to organize your luggage, a suggestion from Aline
  • Airtags to track our suitcases; after the lost luggage fiasco of summer 2022, this solution can help you find your checked luggage faster!

For every day

  • A E-reader to carry your favorite books with you while saving space
  • A Bluetooth transmitter to watch movies on the plane with your own Bluetooth headphones
  • An adapter that includes different USB outlets
  • A portable battery for long days on the road. Our favorites are this one and the Skullcandy brand.
  • A headphone splitter to watch a movie together with your travel partner (approved by Aline)
  • An extension cable, because we know that the power outlet is never where we want it to be.
  • A wireless phone charger, when you have just used it underwater and need to charge it simultaneously.
  • For noise-canceling headphones, we recommend these, and Jean-Maximilien recommends the Beats Fit Pro, which can be worn for work as well as for running.
