6 Classic Travel-Themed Halloween Costumes

Even if you aren't traveling this upcoming Halloween weekend, you can pretend you are with a travel inspired costume.

Short on ideas? Don't fret, here are six classic travel-themed costumes sure to make you a hit this Halloween.

Flight Attendant

This one is typically reserved for women, but anyone can make it work. Plus, the flight attendant outfit works for just about any type of costume party. 

Need to look scary? Just add some makeup.

If you're going out with a friend or partner, an airline pilot costume will complement this one nicely.


The best part of this costume is that you might end up earning a few tips before the night is over.

What's more, if you wear it right, this costume doubles as a Pharrell impression.

Airport Ground Crew

With the help of a few props, the airport marshall costume is super easy to pull off. You'll just need a bright orange or yellow vest and a pair of headphones. 

But in order to distinguish yourself from a construction worker, you'll need a pair of bright-colored wands (or ping pong paddles). Empty paper towel rolls should work well and won't cost you anything. 


If you want to guarantee your costume will be unique to wherever you're headed this Halloween, consider being a tourist attraction.

The Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower are two of the most recognizable landmarks on the planet and therefore, if you go those routes, you won't have to worry about explaining your costume to anyone.


It's stereotypical, but funny nonetheless. Throw a clunky camera around your neck, slip on socks and sandals and find a goofy hat and your ugliest Hawaiian shirt. Boom, you're in business.


For this costume, you'll need to get your hands on some cardboard or poster board and a permanent marker. From there you can personalize the passport to include your own information or have some fun and pretend you're a celebrity passport.
