For many travelers, sleeping while traveling can be a gruesome experience. Sure, when traveling by plane many airlines provide pillows and blankets as a convenience for their passengers. Yet now, many of us bring along our personal pillows to help make our excursions a little more enjoyable. Some may bring along a travel sized pillow while others bring a standard size pillow for extra comfort. However, one thing we don’t really think about bringing along is a travel pillowcase.
Travel pillowcase? Yes, a travel pillow case.
What exactly is a travel pillowcase? Well, it’s just a pillowcase that you take along with you while you travel. It fits most standard sized pillows that you find in hotels.
Separately, they also make pillowcases for travel sized pillows such as those you use on an airplane.
Reminds You of Home
At first, the thought of bringing along a travel pillowcase seems a little strange. Then as you think about it more, it starts to make sense.
Most world travelers know that the thing that they look forward to the most after taking a long trip is getting back home and sleeping in their own bed. Face it, sometimes we get home sick even while on vacation. Some travelers may also find it difficult to sleep comfortably in hotel beds in unfamiliar places even if the hotels provide the most luxurious linens. As the saying goes, “there’s no place like home”.
Travel pillowcases remind you of home because you can bring a little piece of home with you. There’s just something refreshing about the idea of having something as simple as your very own travel pillowcase with you while you are away from home. A travel pillow case can make a substantial difference on how well your travel plans turn out. Just knowing that your travel pillowcase is with you provides for a more enjoyable travel time and ease of mind.
Simple but Extra
A travel pillowcase is simple but extra. The simplicity of such a small travel item can provide so much extra in your travel life.
- A travel pillowcase is simple to pack and doesn’t take up extra space in either your carry-on or check-in bags.
- A travel pillowcase in your carry-on bag can simply be taken out and stuffed with your coat or other pieces of clothing to be used to lay your head on in a plane, train, or car and even while you are on a lay over between trips.
- A travel pillowcase can provide the familiar feelings and smells of your own home to provide for a much better night’s sleep on your journeys.
- A travel pillowcase can provide extra hygiene when used as an extra layer over hotel pillows.
- A travel pillowcase can have beauty benefits for your skin and hair.

Standard VS Travel Sized
Travel pillowcases are made in both standard and travel pillow sizes.
Standard sized travel pillowcases are made for pillows with the dimensions 20″x26″. These travel pillowcases work well with sleeping pillows in most hotels around the world.
Some travel pillowcases are made for travel sized pillows which have the dimensions 14″x20″. These travel pillowcases work well for young travelers and are also beneficial for using with pillows provided by most airlines.
Make It Your Own
What’s even better than traveling with your own travel pillowcase is that you can “make it your own” by personalizing it.
First, you can choose what type of material works best for you. A travel pillowcase made of silk and satin helps to keep your head cool and is great for your skin and hair. Plus, silk and satin are so luxurious which is how you should feel while traveling.
Secondly, travel pillowcases come in many different colors to suit your personality. Neutrals are always the norm but choosing vibrant colors for your travel pillowcase will make it hard to forget to re-pack for your next trip.
Lastly, you can even personalize your travel pillowcase even more by adding a simple monogram or making an extra special one for your little travelers with their name or a picture of their favorite super-hero or character on it.
