It’s not quite comparable to going to the dentist or DMV, but while we all love to travel, the process of getting from point A to point B can be quite stressful at times. This is why most major airports have places that offer massages and why almost all airports sell alcohol. Yet many travel-related issues can be avoided if you pack the right products. We’re not just talking about the basics like your phone and passport (but don’t forget them either!), but we also advise packing some of the less obvious things that will make your trip much easier. And no, these things don’t even have to put a serious dent in your wallet.

If you’re looking to save big bucks on things like airfare, hotels, and gas by getting your cabin essentials on the cheap, fret not because we’ve got you covered.

If you’re ready to change the way you travel (for the better), here are 15 popular travel accessories we love that cost under $25.
