10 Travel Essentials For Any Successful Solo Trip

Hear us out: The solo trip is not something to be feared, it's something to be embraced and celebrated. Aside from not having to deal with someone else's tiresome sight-seeing preferences (you skip that art museum if you want to), you also only have to worry about packing for one (more luggage, more problems). And while we'll leave it to you where on the map to get your wanderlust on, we can equip you with a list of solo trip essentials to help get you there.
Scroll ahead to shop trendy-practical products for any successful single's vacation: compact carry-ons, tech-savvy luggage tags, bad-ass backpacks, fashionable fanny packs, and more. Treat yourself to some one-on-one time with yourself.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
