10 Best Travel Humidifiers
for December 2022

Humidity isn't always a concern when heading out of town, but on long flights, road trips and camping trips, it can become uncomfortable. Humidity can also have a negative impact on your skin, hair, and clothes, so a travel humidifier is one of the easiest things to bring on your trip.

Humidifiers can help combat dry skin, frizzy hair, and static electricity. They also help regulate your body temperature, which is especially important on long flights or road trips. Humidifiers work by releasing water vapor into the air, which cools the air by evaporating the moisture.

Our testing Lab has tested humidifiers for years, evaluating performance, ease of use, and energy efficiency. Our top pick is the Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier, which emits warm, moisture-filled vapor and is easy to operate. We also like the Honeywell HCM-250, which emits cool, moisture-filled vapor.
