Having a flashlight can be useful on long plane rides, or in hostels, so that you can read and work without disturbing your fellow travelers. It can also be handy to have one around in case of a power outage. And don’t forget to use it to check that you didn’t forget anything under the bed at the hotel!

14. Trash Bag
A simple trash bag can be used for so many different things while you’re traveling. If you’re caught without a raincoat in a storm, use it as quick poncho. Tie it over your bag to ensure that it’s waterproof. If you have to sit outside for a long time, make sure that your pants stay clean by putting down the bag to sit on first.
15. Pill Container
Although a travel pill container makes most people think of their grandparents, your Granny may be the smartest traveler out there. Packing a travel pill container gives you space to tuck tiny things that can easily get lost, like earrings, hair ties, painkillers, or memory cards. You can also easily switch it between your suitcase and other travel bags, which is an ideal way to ensure that you have all the necessities on you for a day of hiking or sightseeing.
