Quick Drying Travel Towels - Functional & Compact

Travel towels are an absolute necessity when travelling – even if you are staying in a hotel that supplies everything. They come in a range of sizes, colours and materials and are great for everything from camping, gym, at home or for the beach.

Personally I never travel without my small microfiber travel towel, and since it is so compact (folded in its little travel case it is only a little bigger than my phone) it fits easily into even the most over packed bag! With proper care and storage, they can last years making it a cost-effective investment.

Below are just some of the uses of this handy little accessory, if you can think of anymore just add it to the comments below!

Better than a Dedicated Hair Towel

Travelling with a hair dryer is not exactly practical, and more often than not the hotel ones are more noise than actual help, which is where my towel comes in use the most. My hair is a nightmare to dry at the best of times, so even at home I use the small towel to wrap my hair in before finishing it off with the hairdryer.

I’ve purchased dedicated hair towels and turbans before, but none of them have been as effective as my little microfiber towel (and it doesn’t need harsh rubbing against hair).

There are any number of hair towels available…like this Diva Darling Microfiber Hair Towel

For Beach Days

Thanks to advances in fabric technology, there are some amazing sand resistant, fast drying and compact beach towels available. Such as the ECCOSOPHY Microfiber Beach towel.

Last Minute Laundry Solutions

I am sure most people have been in a situation where they have had to turn the hotel sink into an emergency laundry… in fact on our most recent trip, my very clever boyfriend decided to only pack 4 pairs of underwear for a 2-week holiday… the designated laundry stop was midway through the trip.

After wringing through the socks and underwear until water stopped dripping through the towel, we hung the clothes over the shower rail and by the next day everything but the thickest socks were dry!

Simple but Effective

Of course this is all in addition to the actual use of the towel… to replace a standard heavy, thick and slow drying standard bathroom or beach towels. These were originally designed for camping and backpackers, so things like functionality and size are extremely important considerations when choosing the right towel for you. Everything else is just a bonus 🙂
