It’s not often I get to travel in first class or business class, but when I do, I am in heaven because it means I might actually get a decent night’s sleep on a long-haul flight., something that’s rare when I’m more typically flying in economy.
The odds of actually getting some shut-eye increase drastically if I’m using a travel pillow. If you have the same problem sleeping on planes as I do, then I recommend you invest in a good-quality travel pillow. You can buy one of those horseshoe-shaped ones at your local drugstore for a few bucks, but there are better travel pillows that will do a better job of supporting your head so that you can fall asleep comfortably. Here are three examples that are highly-rated by travellers for you to consider and, as usual, I’ve given you a cheap, mid-price and top-end option. The choice is yours.
BLOW THE BUDGET
trtl Pillow Plus, Fully Adjustable Travel Pillow
Trtl has several styles and models of pillows and accessories designed to help you sleep in comfort in an uncomfortable location. It’s essentially an improved version of their original Trtl pillow which is designed for taking on an airplane, car or bus ride, the train or even for using at home. It began as a Kickstarter project that was fully funded in just six hours. It’s differentiating feature is an adjustable strap that gives your neck perfect support.
MIDDLE OF THE PACK
Huzi Infinity Travel Pillow
Sleeping on an airplane involves a lot of shifting to get comfortable. This infinity pillow comes in a loop shape that lets you configure it in an infinite number of ways so that you can find that sweet spot without having to contort yourself to do it.
MLVOC Pure Memory Foam Travel Pillow
The horseshoe-shaped travel pillow is a standard, but the most inexpensive ones use cheap filler which might seem nice when you touch them in the store, but in the real world get crushed by the weight of your head, rendering them less than useful. This product uses memory foam that fits to the shape of your head and retains its shape so that you remain comfortable through the night.
