This holiday season, travel accessories will be in high demand. That’s because 115 million people will be hitting the road (and the sky) in the next few weeks — two million more people than last year and the second highest since 2000, when AAA began tracking.

And since more Americans are investing in travel, despite the cost, to make memories with loved ones and experience new places, we’ve got some portable and easy travel accessories to make the trip more palatable. Immerse yourself in music, massage your pedal-weary foot, moisturize dehydrated skin, and beef up your laptop so you can get some work done on holiday. Check these products — some have a special promo for amNY readers — before you get in the car or on the plane.  


Earbuds of the future

Say hello to our new little friend — the Wilbur Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds. The science is secret agent-like: you can be fully immersed in Taylor Swift and then use the pass-through transparency mode to  amplify outside sound so you can hear people without removing the earbuds. Takes your eavesdropping to the next level!
