European Vegan Zine
Shop at supermarkets anywhere in Europe with confidence with this booklet, which has translations of ingredients in most European languages. It lists translations for the non-vegan ingredients that most often lurk in products, like whey, gelatin and casein. So you can scan ingredients lists with ease.
This pocket-sized book contains translations in 79 languages, explaining what vegan means. You can show it to your waiter at any restaurant anywhere in the world to request vegan word.
Is it Vegan? iOS ($4.99) Android ($4.99) Scan the barcode of any product and it will tell you if the product is vegan (works best in the US).
Lush Eco-friendly shampoos, soaps, toothpaste and more, with vegan products clearly marked (over half their products are vegan). Lots of dry products, like shampoo bars and toothpaste tabs, which are good for packing in your carry-on for a plane, so you don't have to worry about exceeding the TSA liquid limit. They now have shops around the world.
Refillable, BPA-free toothpaste tubes
Pack your favourite vegan toothpaste in this eco-friendly, refillable tubes. They're small enough to fit within the TSA liquid limit for carry-ons on the plane.
EarPlanes Do you experience discomfort in your ears when flying? EarPlanes can help; these specialized earplugs normalize pressure in your ears.
Deva Probiotic Capusules Make sure you stay regular and your gut healthy with these vegan probiotic capsules. Plane travel can be dehydrating and upset your digestive system, so make sure you get plenty of water, fiber and probiotics (whether with fermented foods or probiotic capsules).
Resistance Band Kit You don't have to skip your workout just because you're on the road. Use your own body weight and resistance to work out. This resistance band kit is lightweight and fits into a small bag, so it's perfect for exercise on the road.
SteriPen An easy way to sterilize water anywhere, using this UV light.
Doodle A scheduling app, which is surprisingly useful for vegan travel. I use it to discover which restaurants are open for specific meals, like breakfast, or particular days, e.g. Sundays. I describe my Doodle hack in The Essential Vegan Travel Guide.
Hand blender (UK)
Here's a hand blender available in the UK. Hand blenders are perfect for packing because they take up little room and allow you to make things you'd make in your blender at home. Don't forget to check if the blender's voltage is compatible with your destination!
Cuisinart mini food processor Cuisinart makes great food processors, and this mini one (just $39!) is a good size for packing. It does take up more room than a hand blender, so just take it if you absolutely can't live without homemade pesto and hummus, or you're going somewhere for awhile. As with the hand blender, check the voltage of your destination and if your food processor will work there.
