Are you looking for advice on how to get a better night's sleep while travelling? You are not alone. For many there's no place like home when it comes to sleep.
According to surveys, most frequent travellers prefer their bedroom even over a quality hotel room, with the majority saying their home pillows are better.
Getting some rest on planes can be even more of a challenge, with the noise, light and cramped seating. Especially when flying long-haul. To avoid spending the first 36 hours to recover after your flight, you should really get some quality sleep onboard the plane.
Taking into consideration that the ideal sleep environment is cool, quiet, and dark, a new and unfamiliar environment can be a challenge. It is also what you are used to, like the firmness and comfort of your pillow, that can play into how much sleep you will get.
With all of this in mind we thought we would share our best advice on how to get better sleep while travelling.
