Insuremytrip™, a company specializing in customized travel insurance, has some very helpful travel advice and tips for long haul flights. Long haul flights, more than 2200 nautical miles (4100km) can be killers to your travel comfort.
Probably the most vital of these travel tips is to pack a travel pillow, sleep mask and earplugs. Sleep masks and ear plugs are pretty generic but there are hundreds of varieties of travel pillows. If you leave yourself at the mercy of the complementary “pillows” provided free by the airline you have just inflicted a major injury on yourself, akin to shooting yourself in the foot but without the humour.
