The bizarre £11 glasses that holidaymakers swear by to stop travel sickness – but you'll look very odd | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed a very clever £11 gadget for preventing travel sickness – although you'll look very strange.

TikTok user Jersey Kolasa said she swears by motion sickness glasses to stop her feeling ill on long car journeys.


Travel sickness, also known as motion sickness, is thought to be caused by repetitive motions during travel such as waves or bumps which affect the balance in your ear.

While it is most common in children especially those between the age of two and 12, many adults also get travel sickness according to Bupa, especially those prone to nausea, migraines and earaches.

Jersey showed off the very strange-looking glasses in a video and said: "Guys we drove 11 hours – I was passenger – and we went through the West Virginian mountains and everything.

"Not only do you get to look super cool while you're travelling [but] you do not feel one ounce of car sick, you don't feel dizzy, nothing."
