HuffPost asked people who work in the travel industry to share the one item they’re always sure to take when they go on a trip. Here are their picks:Scarf“One thing I always make sure to bring with me, no matter the destination or flight time, is a scarf. The right scarf can be a top, a head wrap, a blanket, a neck pillow, an eye mask and so many more things. It always comes in handy on long flights, and I always regret it if I forget it.” ― Gabby Beckford, travel expert and founder of Packs Light.Turkish Towel“My Turkish towel has served multiple purposes during my travels ― from a blanket on a chilly bus to a towel at the beach, and even as a pillow when I’m camping. It has saved me countless times and I never travel without it.” ― Sean Lau, travel blogger.Protein Bars“Always pack snacks ― you may not have time to grab something before it’s time to start boarding, especially if lines for food and drink are long. Protein bars or meal replacement bars don’t take up much space, and they are a simple, healthy way to prevent hunger while on the go.” ― Nick Motlagh, Delta Air Lines pilot.Advertisement

You never know when you might need one of these items, and its easier to grab this from your carry-on.” ― Diane Martin, Delta Air Lines flight attendant.Rain Jacket“I pack my rain jacket on every trip I take, and it has saved me on numerous occasions. I recommend purchasing a lightweight rain jacket with a hood. Make sure it has deep pockets with a zipper so you can safely store all of your valuables. Even if rain is not on the forecast, I pack it anyway because I have found forecasts are often inaccurate!” ― Phil Dengler, co-founder of The Vacationer.Portable Charger“Airports are so crowded, and everybody is trying to charge their phones. Having a power bank means I don’t have to sit in crowded areas just for my phone to charge.” ― Jessica van Dop DeJesus, founder and editor at The Dining Traveler.“Cordless smartphone chargers that plug directly into your device are my new favorite travel accessory. No more tangled wires to deal with inside your carry-on or purse.” ― Laura Motta, digital editorial director at Lonely Planet.Advertisement

Medications“One essential item I always make sure to pack when I travel is my medications. These medications are crucial for my health, and unlike toiletries or clothes, …
