Getting a Travel Humidifier has saved me much pain and discomfort. Spending my time between Massachusetts in the United States and Nakhon Ratchisima in Thailand I have racked up more air and road travel than I care to admit. I have been around the world many times and have the scars to prove it.
The major problems I have when traveling are the dry desert-like airplane air and frequent cabin pressure changes. These things combined make travel painful for myself and many others.
Something that can really help with this widespread problem and something I have recently discovered are personal travel humidifiers.
These small humidifiers can help to keep your sinuses and skin from drying out while traveling and are a godsend for someone like me who gets bad sinus headaches while traveling.
Some of the smallest humidifiers attach to the top of a water bottle and can even be used on the airplane while some of the larger types can be carried in a suitcase and used in your hotel room or wherever else you end up on your travels.
Mini Travel Humidifiers
The 1st type of travel humidifiers and the kind that are most useful on long flights are the mini personal humidifiers. These typically attach to the top of a normal water bottle or just sit in the top of a water bottle and are USB powered.
These little gadgets are cool!
What you do is get yourself a bottle of water after you go through security at the airport or ask for a bottle of water once on the plane. You just have to attach it to the top of the bottle and plug it into a USB port on a notebook, plane seat back, USB battery pack, or any other USB power source you can find.
What I do once on the plane is make a little tent with a blanket so that I have a nice small area for the humidifier to work and not disturb the other passengers. You can also go to the restroom, plug it into an outlet, and use it in there. Whenever your sinuses start to get dry just spend some time in the restroom or in your makeshift tent with your portable USB powered mini travel humidifier.

Portable Travel Humidifiers
The 2nd type of travel humidifiers which are also very useful are the larger more powerful but still portable small room humidifiers.
These are great for use in a hotel room or wherever you find yourself once you get to where you are going.
Like I said these humidifiers are usually larger and more powerful than the mini travel humidifiers and will work much better in a larger room and for more than just keeping you comfortable.
These travel humidifiers also use a regular water bottle but some have their own water reservoir. They can be USB or mains powered depending on the model.
I can’t tell you how many times I have spent the night in a hotel room with the air conditioner blasting away drying out the air only to wake up the next morning with a major sinus headache and spent the rest of the day in misery. If I had known about these travel humidifiers I could have avoided so much pain and lost vacation and work time.
