CHICAGO, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a survey conducted by The GO Group, LLC., provider of  GO Airport Shuttle services,  the "must pack " travel accessory is an electronic charger.  Sixty nine percent of the 374 respondents reported this was their priority item.

Almost eight percent of travelers pack a luggage scale and seven percent bring their own pillow. Just three percent report they bring their own portable exercise equipment and one percent packs a clothes steamer.

Traveling light seems to be important for 24 percent of the survey participants who replied "none of the above" while just under one percent responded with "all of the above."

Write- in responses included flip flops, head phones, a blanket and bathroom scale.

"Travelers appear to rely on their hotels or accommodations to provide most conveniences, but do not want to risk not being able to use their computers, phones and other electronic devices," says John McCarthy, president of The GO Group.
