If the issue is having "white noise" and not necessarily the moving air from the fan, you can purchase small electronic items which emit some kind of gentle noise, and will be much easier to pack than a fan (and take up way less space!) We have one we bought from Sharper Image, but I have seen others in other catalogues - try Travelsmith or Magellan's, or a travel store if you have one nearby. You usually get a choice of sounds - a stream, rain, ocean waves, etc. (Ours has about 15 choices, ranging from city traffic (!) to nighttime crickets.) We have taken it practically everywhere and like it so much we even use it every night at home.
