Before you hit the road, or get on a plane, you need a travel pillow. Sleeping well on a long journey can be the key to arriving refreshed and ready to go. But getting some shut-eye on an overnight flight, train, or car ride can be a challenge without the proper neck pillow. If you’ve ever had your nap interrupted because you’ve turned into a human bobblehead, you know exactly what we’re talking about.

A solid travel pillow should offer the right amount of support, be comfortable, portable and easily washable, and at least attempt to look somewhat cool so as to avoid inflight embarrassment.

From neck pillows that look like elegant scarves to others that inflate in under a minute, there are plenty of options on the market that will allow you to rest your weary head. These travel pillows are your best bet at a restful journey.
