Cabin Basics: Travelling in Comfort

We all love jetting off to exotic destinations around the world- but the thought of spending hours on a plane often feels us with dread, especially if it's a long-haul flight. Discover how to travel in style and comfort with our round up of cabin bag essentials for every sophisticated traveller.

It’s All About the Bag

[Midi Marylebone Tech Tote in Scarlet Saffiano from Aspinal of London] When organising your cabin essentials, you'll need to choose the perfect bag to store them. Size will be important due to airline restrictions but you may want to consider other things too such as how comfortable it is to carry and whether it has any handy internal pockets. Our new Midi Marylebone Tech in vibrant scarlet is a chic option for ladies who want to travel in style. With plenty of space for everything you'll need on a short or long haul flight, it also features a portable charger so you can keep your tablet or phone fully charged for listening to music, watching films or catching up on some work.

It’s All About 'his' Bag

For the men, our Aspinal of London Small Harrison Weekender Bag is perfectly proportioned as both an overnight bag and cabin baggage. Available in rich chocolate or smooth tan Italian calf leather, it features an adjustable padded strap, built in feet and a matching luggage tag that can be personalised with up to four initials.

Stay Organised

The easiest way to ensure stress-free travelling is to stay organised. From printing off all your travel documents to remembering to label your luggage, there are plenty of things to keep on top of in your holiday preparations. Luckily, our luxury leather Travel Collection is the perfect accessories set to keep you organised. Featuring our exceptional travel wallet, two luggage labels and a stunning passport cover, it comes in a variety of shades and each item can be monogrammed with your initials.

Beauty in the Clouds

Feeling fresh in the air is often difficult to achieve. There are a few things you can do though to keep your skin and hair looking and feeling healthy. Your skin will dry out much quicker at higher altitudes so it's essential that you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and moisturising your face, hands and lips regularly. Keep all your cabin beauty essentials at hand (in mini travel sizes, of course) with our Aspinal of London Large Essential Pouch that's amazingly spacious and comes in an array of gorgeous colours.

Home Comforts

When you're sat on a plane for hours, you'll probably start to crave the comforts of home. Airline seats are notoriously uncomfortable but you can make having a nap a little easier by investing in a good neck pillow to help support your head as you sleep. When the air temperature on the plane starts to drop as you climb higher into the clouds, our Aspinal Lightweight Cashmere Scarf, pictured here in Blue Moon, is ideal for wrapping around your shoulders for a little extra warmth.

Inflight Entertainment

Make sure you avoid boredom on the plane by having plenty of entertainment options. While diving into a book is always a great choice, and some screen-based entertainment may be provided in-flight; you can't beat a good board game. Fun for almost all ages, our Travel Backgammon Set comes in a range of colours and is beautifully finished. It's perfectly sized for your tray table, and is easily rolled away into its case, taking up minimal space in your cabin bag.
