6 Essentials All Travelers Should Bring on the Plane

Whether your flight is two hours long or ten, what you pack in your carry-on is important to ensuring you are comfortable during the duration of your flight. To ensure a pleasurable flight, do not leave home without these six carry-on essentials from Expresso Parking, the best and cheapest long term Oakland Airport parking service.

1.       Neck pillow – No matter how tired you are, it can be difficult to get comfortable enough to fall asleep in an airplane seat. This problem can be averted by bringing along a comfy neck pillow. A neck pillow will also keep you from straining your neck while sleeping on the plane or accidentally falling asleep on the person next to you.

2.       Headphones – Some airlines will provide passengers with headphones on the plane, sometimes for an additional fee. Just to be safe, you should pack your own headphones. Headphones are key to canceling out noise and listening to your favorite music.  

3.       Medicine – Are you prone to headaches, joint pain, nausea or anxiety? If so, you should bring your prescriptions or over-the-counter drugs, such as Aleve or Dramamine, to help you remain comfortable and calm throughout the flight.  

4.       Empty Water Bottle – It's important that you stay hydrated during your travels. While you can’t take a bottle of water through security, you can take an empty water bottle with you, which you can fill up for free after going through security.

5.       E-Reader – Reading is a great way to keep yourself entertained during a long flight. While some books are large and heavy, a Kindle e-reader is small and light, taking up little space. Plus, with an e-reader you have access to tons of books, so once you finish one book you can begin another.

6.       Lotion – The pressurized air inside the plane can cause your skin to become dry. Lotion will keep your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed. Just make sure the lotion is in a container less than 8 oz. and stored in a ziplock bag that meets the airport's security requirements.

Jeffrey N. of Hayward, CA (via Yelp)

First time parking here. Had my car here for a week and I must say it was an easy. transaction. Parked, grabbed some complimentary muffins, hopped into the shuttle and me and my lady were on our way to the Oakland airport.

Note. they have online coupons for cheaper rates. make sure you have hold on that when paying after your trip.

Johnny S. of San Leandro, CA (via Yelp)

After years of economy parking lot and other long term lots, tried this and will never go back. 

Valet service is so clutch here esp since we have a toddler. Just pull up, leave it and jump on the shuttle.  Rates are decent(I always purchase ahead of time online and use coupon), drivers are nice, and it takes a hassle out of parking when you're often rushing to catch a flight.

Allure D. of Walnut Creek, CA (via Yelp)

Fast, easy and convenient. Best parking lot (be sure to print the coupon) and a great value. If you park in valet, you car will be ready to go upon return.

Sylvia L. of Novato, CA (via Yelp)

This is the place to go for reasonable parking if you're going on a trip. We park here whenever we fly out of town. The drivers are polite, the shuttles come by often and you can get a 15% discount if you check in on yelp.

Coral V. of Richmond, CA (via Yelp)

I love parking here whenever I go out of town. They always have coupons online and their prices beats all of the other parking structures. You don't have to wait long for the shuttle either!
