The right travel pillow can mean the difference between a wonderfully relaxed trip on a plane or train, and a woefully uncomfortable ride that starts your trip off on the wrong foot. Airplane neck pillows used to all be about the same, but designs have come a long way in recent years. Here, we’ve rounded up the best and most comfortable airplane neck pillows you can buy.

Best Traditional Neck Pillow

BCOZZY’s Chin Supporting Travel Pillow uses the traditional neck pillow design that most people will recognize, but it adds a unique twist. Instead of being shaped like a horseshoe, the BCOZZY travel pillow continues to wrap around your neck in the front to add chin support. This prevents your head from falling forward, and it’s far more comfortable than the old standard design.

Best Compact Neck Pillow

The Travelrest Ultimate Inflatable Travel Pillow is the largest neck pillow on the market when you use it, but it’s one of the most compact options out there when it’s time to pack it away again. That’s because it’s inflatable, so you can deflate it and roll it up once you arrive at your destination. When inflated, it goes across your whole body and places a nice comfortable pillow on your shoulder.

Best Alternative Design Neck Pillow

The Trtl Pillow Neck Support Travel Pillow has what is by far the most novel design we’ve come across, and many people prefer it to the traditional travel pillow design. It looks like a bent cloth envelope when stowed, but it wraps around your neck like a scarf and hides a wonderfully supportive interior structure that’s very comfortable to sleep on.
