Finding a travel steamer that you can reply on is an absolute necessity if you’re going to be traveling for more than a few days for business. Here are our 5 expert recommended top picks for the best travel steamers.
Measuring only 4 x 7 inches (about the size of an ostrich egg, hence it’s name Ovo, Italian for “egg”) the Ovo 150 GT is a compact 2-in-1 steamer and iron that can fit into your backpack or dresser drawer. It’s patent-pending heating technology delivers impressive steam volume without the worry of spitting or leaking (tested and proven) and comes complete with a water measuring cup, removable fabric/lint brush and 2-in-1 travel pouch and heat pad to rest the iron on.
Continuous steam is delivered for up to 10 minutes and ready for use within a minute or less, with a power indicator light that stops flashing when steam and heat are ready for your clothes.

This new travel steamer (just introduced in November) features a lightweight, compact design and is perfect for the frequent traveler. These workhorse devices quickly and easily take the wrinkles out of fabrics -- even many fabrics not traditionally suitable for traditional ironing, including silk, wool, polyester, nylon and velvet.
Their extremely portable size makes them perfect not only for home use but on the road as well. Travelers will appreciate that they can also be used to sanitize virtually every item or surface in their hotel room, killing 99.9% of all germs and bacteria.
Vela Garment Steamers offer a unique stainless steel faceplate that is especially useful for taming the toughest wrinkles. Few garment steamers provide this feature and the ones that do are almost double the retail price of Vela. And best of all, Vela uses no caustic chemicals of any kind - only steam.

Recommendation from Orion Brown, of The Black Travel Box.
"I recently attended a gala and needed my dress steamed. Since I was staying at a JW Marriott, I assumed they had an in house steaming/cleaning service. And when I asked they said they would bring one up to my room. Lo and behold, this little guy showed up:
I was a bit miffed thinking it wasn't much to look at - but tried it anyway. This sucker is amazing! Its got a small water well that holds enough to steam several garments. The Conair gets super hot in under a minute and doesn't leak or leave drips on the fabric. It deodorizes, steams, and fits perfectly in my carry on bag. I bought one as soon as I got home and take it with me on all my trips."
The Steamer heats up in 30 seconds, doesn't leak, and is safe on all fabrics. It's really great. One drawback is that you must unplug everything nearby before you use it or you may need to reset your electrical circuits. The first time we used it, we lost our power in the house but the circuit breaker restored it. This could be a hassle if you are in a hurry to get our the door.
