In a perfect world, travel would mean unplugging and enjoying the journey. Of course, in a perfect world, there wouldn’t be armrest hoggers, loud talkers, or anyone enjoying a mid-flight fish plate. Alas, sometimes, enjoying the journey means stuffing your carry-on with an ample supply of comforting distractions. That’s why customers love receiving promotional travel gadgets and accessories. If your industry has a large market of travelers, giving customers the right gifts can create branding opportunities on the way to every destination.
But, which gifts are best? Since there will always be unavoidable hiccups, anything that offers a bit of home on-the-go is a welcome treat for travelers. And with COVID-19 requiring that everyone be more diligent with their safety, protection items are one of the best promotional travel accessories you can hand out. Let’s lay out all the travel promotional items that customers need to pack, and the items that will keep them safe while traveling right now.
Everyone has their one essential travel packing tip. Bring an extra set of clothes in carry-on in case your luggage is lost. Roll your clothes instead of folding to save space. Bring less so you can buy more when you get there. Okay, maybe that last one is just me. But everyone has some kind of strategy when deciding what to pack when traveling. To cover your bases, make sure to check off carry-on flight essentials like:
Looking to hand out great promotional items for travelers? Check out our favorite must-have things to bring on a plane:
A drop of sweet-scented essential oil rubbed just below the nose will be a life-saver when customers run into unpleasant smells while traveling—of course, the added dose of calm won’t hurt either.
Custom phone stands make it easy to watch videos on devices without having to hold them for the entire flight.
There’s nothing worse than a dead phone when you’re traveling. Custom portable chargers and power banks with logo ensure that customers can skip the low-battery panic attacks and just enjoy their trip.
Saying ‘safe travels’ used to be a fun send off for those departing on trips, but now it’s sound advice. By taking a few extra precautions, customers can continue to travel safely.
Top 5 Safety Tips for Traveling During COVID-19:
If your industry relies on travelers, help them follow these recommended safety tips for business travelers by handing out PPE travel accessories, like:
Face masks are required for boarding planes, so every traveling customer will need one. Offer customers logo face masks that are breathable and top quality for added peace of mind.
Pressing elevator buttons and opening doors doesn’t mean having to touch where thousands of others have before. Instead, these no-touch safety tools allow customers to avoid touching the surface altogether.
It’s always a good idea to travel with a pen, but in these times, it’s especially important to carry your own stylus pen, such as our best-selling Mineral Alpha Soft Touch Stylus Pen with Rose Gold Trim. The rubber stylus can be used to select, swipe, and sign on touchpads, so customers don’t have to come in contact with the pad itself.
The idea of spreading all your stuff out on an airplane tray table is less than appealing right now. These custom Airplane Pockets are the perfect solution. They slide on to cover the tray table, and have hanging pockets to store a laptop or tablet, notebook, snacks, and whatever else you’d like easy access to.
If tray table covers aren’t your style, consider custom alcohol wipe cases. Each case of these Britebrand™ Alcohol Wipe Case contains six alcohol wipes and a silicone strap for travel.
