The best sleep masks for plane travel are a simple yet clever part of your essential travel accessories and, along with a decent travel pillow, will help you drift off if you're trying to get some shut-eye in unfamiliar places, such as on planes or in hotels. There are many different kinds of sleep masks designed to block out ambient light, with a wide variety of shapes, styles, and textures to suit your needs. From luxury silken options to modern memory foam designs, here are some of the best.

A sleep mask is an integral part of getting to sleep at night. Which mask you choose depends entirely on your personal taste and what you find comfortable. We like the lightweight simplicity of the Sipwell Jersey Slumber Silk Sleep Mask (opens in new tab).

Eye masks that don't touch your eyes are a popular choice for people that wear mascara. You have several to chose from, including the affordable three-pack of masks from YIVIEW (opens in new tab).

If you really need help sleeping, then consider a solution that also includes earplugs, like the MZOO Sleep Mask (opens in new tab). It's made of ultra-comfy memory foam so should help you get some sleep.
