Falling asleep on a plane is a talent that eludes even the most seasoned of travelers. But before you go splurging on a first-class ticket or resorting to booze or sleeping pills, try investing in a great travel pillow. There are endless options out there to provide the comfort and alignment you need to for successful in-flight snoozing. Below, seven of our favorites.
Travelrest Memory Foam Travel and Neck Pillow
This memory foam pillow was originally developed by NASA, so you can bet it’s built to travel.
Cabeau Evolution Memory Foam Travel PIllow
Yes, this travel pillow looks strange. But it offers head, chin, and neck support like nothing we’ve ever tried before. Writes one happy customer, “It’s the first pillow I have found comfortable on long-haul flights.”
Bcozzy Chin Supporting Travel Pillow
This travel pillow wraps comfortably around your neck to support your chin and keep your head in the correct alignment.
Push-Button Inflatable Daydreamer Neck Pillow
If you don’t want to have to carry around a bulky travel pillow, put this compact option on your radar. It inflates in less than 60 seconds via a built-in pump and comes with a satin-lined packsack and luggage clip, so you can easily clip it onto the outside of your suitcase.
