+1 ... I travel without a brush, and just lather up cream by hand. Neither my whiskers nor my razor can tell the difference.

Another thing I do when I travel is to lower my standards. I normally try for a DFS+ shave when I'm home, and if I get BBS from it, that's a bonus. But when I'm traveling, I'm not that obsessed with it, and just want to be presentable. So I lower the bar and try for CCS, and anything above that is gravy.
If it hasn't been mentioned yet, don't take anything on the road that you can't afford to lose. Whether it goes astray via theft, your own carelessness, or the bumblings of an over-eager TSA clerk, you don't want to have anything that is irreplaceable.
I Came. I Shaved. I Conquered.
