It really would be nice to have a bag just chilling at the door that had items in it we might need if we jumped up from the couch and declared, “I need to travel, and I need to travel now.”

Travel website Hotwire may have answered that conundrum by surveying its users with an #AnytimeBag survey.

Travelers chimed in with what they believed were the necessary travel accoutrement to include into an “anytime” bag.

The following video will give you an idea of the things you might want to have in a tote dedicated to impromptu trips.

Based on its findings, you should have about six items tucked away in this magical bag sitting by your door: camera, noise-canceling headphones, portable charger, selfie stick, travel toiletry bag and disinfectant wipes.

We guess the assumption that the smartphone, your most important item, is on you at all times.

These aren’t a horrible six items and represent perhaps how to best enjoy a trip when it's sudden and without the hint of premeditation. You will have the necessary things to ensure you can archive it and show it off on Instagram.

But, perhaps, and we are just being silly here, you could switch out the selfie stick for one large bottle of water.

Now, what do you take if there is a dearth of time to plan?
