Planning what to pack or use on that summer trip just got a little easier. TripAdvisor announced the winners of its 2013 Travelers’ Choice Awards for Travel Favorites, the brands travelers around the world have said they prefer to use on their trips. If you hit the beach in Havaianas flip-flops, keep the bugs at bay with Off! insect repellent and drown out the airplane noise with Bose noise-canceling headphones, you’re in good company – these are just a few of the 21 U.S. winners in categories that range from cameras and carry-on luggage to sunscreen and swimwear.
Nearly 40,000 travelers around the world weighed in, including over 12,000 in the U.S., and here are the final results:
|Backpack:||The North Face|
|Car rental agency:||Hertz|
|Gum & mints:||Orbit|
|Lip balm:||ChapStick® Brand Lip Care|
