Contour Travel Pillows

Find out more about Contour Travel Pillows

There are many types of pillows that are designed specifically for use when traveling by car, plane or coach. However, memory foam contour pillows are one of the most ideal for using for this purpose, even though they are not necessarily exclusively a travel pillow.

The therapeutic qualities of the foam material that a contour travel pillow is manufactured from makes them ideal for effective neck and head support when traveling, whether for sleeping or just simply providing support whilst driving.

The special foam that these pillows are made from reacts to your body heat and causes the material to be able to change shape, moulding to support the head and neck. This technology means that the most comfortable shape for a supportive pillow is developed and remains until the pillow stops being used. As the material loses heat, it returns to its original shape ready to be re-molded for the next use.
