Time spent on an airplane, train, bus, or other vehicle is usually not the best part of a trip. Sleeping while you travel helps the time go faster and allows you to reach your destination well-rested and ready to go, but it's difficult for some to get comfortable. One of these pillows can help you get to sleep, get better quality sleep, and wake up without a crick in your neck.

Cabeau Evolution Classic

Best overall

This tall and extremely comfortable pillow is constructed from memory foam and has a media pocket in its machine-washable cover. An adjustable toggle clasp holds the pillow snugly closed in front, so you're surrounded in comfort from all sides. Plus, you can squish it down and fold it up into the included bag, so it takes up less space in your carry-on

VISCO LOVE ProComf Travel Mate

Rectangular shape

If you don't need or like the type of pillow that goes around the neck, check out this small memory foam pillow. It has ventilation ducts to keep you cool as you sleep. Roll it up into the provided bag for easy travel. Use it against the window in a moving vehicle or use it as a traditional pillow in bed.

This magical little device is more brace than pillow. While it's not cushy, its inner core is adjustable to your neck height, and it is certainly well-padded. This allows you to sleep comfortably, even when sitting upright. It doesn't sound or look like a comfortable pillow, but it is.

This memory foam pillow has millions of microbeads inside. The sweat-resistant cover is machine-washable. You can adjust the tightness, and turn it around, so the higher part is where you need the most support. Compress the pillow into the included travel bag to save space. A sleep mask and a pair of earplugs are included for your dreaming pleasure.

Sunany Inflatable Neck Pillow

Personal space

Much more than a pillow, this inflatable number creates your own personal sleeping cave right on your tray table or lap. Lean forward, stick your arms in the sides and your face into the designated hole for a different way to sleep. There are two different angles you can use, simply flip it over to switch between them. Earplugs and a sleep mask are included.
