Top packing priority for a restful holiday: Earplugs
A good pair of earplugs are absolute holiday musts for those hoping to keep fully rested while away, particularly while travelling.

In this way, it is important to invest in a decent pair that will not let you down. The following five pairs are some of the best on the market:

Mighty PlugsMighty plugs are good for blocking out very loud noises. They are good for long-term use and are great for a range of purposes. They are at the higher end of the price range out of the selection, however, and holidaymakers will not necessarily need the level of protection that these fantastically noise reducing plugs provide.
These are excellent earplugs for sleeping, as their manufacturers emphasize the exceptionally soft and comfortable feel of their material. However, recent customer reviews of the product have suggested that snoring can still be heard through the plugs and, as they do not come cheap, holiday makers may be left disappointed.
