Travel Girl Fashion help! A reader asks:
My husband and I always get a bottle of wine and there’s nothing I can’t stand more than when I get stuck with the little plastic cups in hotel rooms. I usually get one from the bar but one time when didn’t have access to one I thought, “I bet there are travel glasses.” Recommendations?
Chances are travel wine glasses aren’t on the top of your packing list, but when you end up late at night in a hotel room stuck with flimsy plastic glasses you might be wanting them.
Luckily for you, there are a ton of packable wine glass sets that you can bring along to enjoy a bottle at your destination. With that in mind, we asked TFG readers to share their favorite ones so you can be prepared for your next trip.
The Best Wine Glasses for Travel
Travel Wine Glasses With Stems
If you want a traditional wine glass look and feel for your next trip, but need something unbreakable, shatterproof, and most importantly—packable, then a set of OPUX glasses could be perfect for you.
One TFG reader shares, “They are pretty robust and will tuck into a walking shoe for packing. I borrow or am given an opener by bar staff or a wine seller. Alternatively, I choose a wine with a screw top.”
Besides being collapsible, the top of the glass pops off so it can be easily packed and it pops back on with a magnetic lock. When packed, the stem sits right into the cup. These glasses are durable and ideal for your next trip!

Constructible Travel Wine Glasses
If you’re not in love with the idea of the magnetic lock, Kikkerland has plastic travel wine glasses that might work for you. Much like the OPUX glasses, the stem of the glass comes off and stores in the cup but the pieces are locked together with a twist.
Travel wine glasses set of 2, anyone? These will have you traveling in faux style. One reader shares, “I’m a bit bourgeois and I needed a stemmed glass.”
They’re easy to assemble, easy to pack, and perfect for not only your next international vacation, but also picnics, road trips, and glamping.

Collapsible Travel Wine Glasses
While the Summit X Cup was built to be a measuring cup that can store away comfortably, they also make great collapsible travel wine glasses. They are made with food-grade silicone and pack tiny so you’ll definitely have room for them.
One TFG reader shares, “The Sea to Summit collapsible silicone cups are fantastic for wine and for coffee. I use mine for backpacking as well—they’re space-saving and give me the ability to drink other beverages.”
If you’re trying to keep your weight down and have limited room but still want to bring a glass for your wine on the road with you, then these are a great choice!
Here’s how to use packing cubes!
Travel Wine Glass Tumbler
Govino produces a terrific travel wine glass tumbler. Their benefits are endless! They are shatterproof, reusable, and recyclable.
A TFG reader says these “wine glasses are the best” and always travels with two, stuffing things in them to double as extra storage.
These polymer wine glasses are not only thin and flexible but show the color of your wine and project its aroma well. Readers love that they are BPA free and dishwasher friendly, too!

Travel Wine Glasses With Lid
If you’re comfortable giving up the traditional wine glass look, then consider a BBTO Insulated Stainless Steel tumbler which makes a superb alternative for travel wine glasses.
This travel mug is made of stainless steel and has a removable lid which includes a drinking straw. The lid helps to reduce possible spills and the stainless steel material means you can use it for hot or cold drinks—a multipurpose, TFG must-have for packable items.
A travel wine glass set of these is perfect because they’re small, packable, and multi-use. Bring them along on your next overseas trip or throw them in your backpack for a night by the fire during a campout.
Be prepared with this list of unexpected items to pack for a trip!
Silicone Wine Glasses
Kindga makes awesome travelable wine glasses and is suitable for a variety of liquids, including wine. They are FDA approved, BPA-free, and non-toxic— plus they’re eco-friendly and reusable.
What we really love about these silicone glasses is that they’re flexible and bendable, which makes them incredibly easy to pack. These ones are made of soft silicone, so they’re foldable and can even fit right into your pocket.
Also, they’re easy-to-clean and can be put into the dishwasher. And even the freezer if you want to keep your drink extra-cold!

Actual Wine Glasses
Not everyone is a fan of travel wine glasses, some of us need to have real glass to enjoy our wine. In that case, Schott Zwiesel fulfills that desire nicely.
One TFG reader shares, “My one thing that I take everywhere. It is one of my favorite wine glasses. I love the way it feels in my hand and no matter where I am in the world and how great or crappy the wine is it makes me happy to sit outside and sip at night after a long day.”

Travel Wine Cooler Set
This sleek and stylish travel wine cooler set by Reduce regulates the temperature of your wine bottle so that you can enjoy it how you like it, without having to deal with melted ice or the like. Plus, it comes with two handy insulated tumblers.
One reader shares, “I always pack a wine opener and both a large glass and small wine glass. I always take my wine with me to save time and energy looking for a wine or liquor store. You can get a small wine cooler to hold it all.”
You simply chill your favorite bottle of wine and put it inside the cooler (which fits most 750 ml bottles of wine), and your wine will stay the same temperature for hours. Perfect for you to enjoy it on a hot summer evening.

Travel Wine Corkscrew
It’s pretty difficult to drink your wine without having a corkscrew on hand—unless, of course, it’s a twist top. A great travel wine corkscrew is something small and packable like this one from MBW.
One reader echoes this sentiment, saying, “We both carry wine openers in our toiletry kits.” And something like this would definitely fit in there!

Wine Stopper for Travel
It’s possible, though it might be rare for some of us, that you might not finish your bottle of wine one night. And you’re not going to want to just leave the bottle open and out. Given that logic, it makes sense to bring a wine stopper on your travels, something small like the Joie’s bottle stopper.
One reader backs this up, saying, “I always pack bottle tops for those bottles of wine you might not finish. Weird, I know.”
These travel wine stoppers are easy to use, provide an airtight seal, and don’t have to be used with just wine but also for things like mineral water, beer, champagne, oils, and more!
Here are the travel experts’ top suitcase recommendations!
Travel Wine Corker
Combos can be handy and this Haley’s Corker set comes with a corkscrew and three corkers. The included corkers are not only stoppers to keep your wine fresh but also help with aerating and pouring the wine.
A TFG reader who “likes wine” always keeps a corkscrew and Haley’s corker in her bath kit. She also points out a cool positive, saying, “The corker also works on other types of bottles.”
Plus, these items are tiny so they’re super easy to pack!

Wine Glass Travel Case
Perhaps the best way to cart around your wine glasses is to transport them in something. The Riedel wine glass travel case is perfect if you want to bring your good glasses along.
It’s a lightweight travel wine glass case that comfortably fits three glasses, but it can also hold two stemmed glasses and two bottles of wine.
The dividers inside protect the glasses from each other and the lock on the bag protects the contents from being taken. If you’re splurging for the case, consider getting some Riedel travel wine glasses to make a perfect set!
Here are some budget travel essentials that won’t break the bank!

How to Pack Wine Glasses
Though wine glasses are made from different materials, it’s still wise to pack them securely, which is where slim packing cubes can be a life-saver. If you don’t have a special travel case, pad individual glasses in items of clothing and slide them into your packing cubes.
We put together a five-part YouTube series showing the different methods to use packing cubes for travel. If you use this specific packing strategy, packing cubes can also compress your belongings. This is the secret to traveling carry-on only!
