1. Smart Riding Suitcases: Travel in Style and Tech
Smart luggage is a game-changer for travelers. These suitcases come equipped with built-in chargers for your devices, TSA approved locks and the fun part, you can ride them. Stay connected and organized while looking stylish on the go especially as you travel to your next gate.
Also, if you’re traveling with young kids, you can transport them through the airport with ease.
Most smart suitcases are designed to meet airline regulations.
However, it’s always a good idea to check with your specific airline for any additional guidelines or restrictions.
2. Portable Electric Kettles: Boil Water Anytime
Portable water purifiers are great but if you are looking for an alternative way to have water that is safe for consumption, electric portable kettles are awesome! You can find options with auto-shut off and boil-dry protection features for safety.
Some models also offer different temperature settings depending on your beverage of choice.
3. Noise-Canceling Earbuds: Silence the World
Whether you’re on a noisy flight or trying to relax in a bustling city, noise-canceling earbuds are your sanctuary especially for those who are noise sensitive.
Immerse yourself in your own world of music, podcasts, audio book or silence and find your inner peace.
4. Foldable Solar Panels: Capture the Sun’s Power
For eco-conscious travelers, foldable solar panels are a game-changer. Charge your devices using clean, renewable energy wherever you go. It’s a small step towards reducing your carbon footprint.
5. Collapsible Travel Pillow: Comfort on the Go
Long journeys can be tiring, but a collapsible travel pillow with ergonomic support can make all the difference. Not sure about you but I have tried the small “u-shaped” pillows and I find them to be uncomfortable but these larger pillows are a game changer.
Enjoy a comfortable nap during your flight and it easily fits in your bag when not in use.
6. Digital Language Translator: Break Down Language Barriers
Exploring new cultures is fantastic, but language barriers can be a challenge. A digital language translator helps bridge the gap, making communication smoother and more enjoyable.
Check your app store as there many apps available on your smart device.
7. Laundry Detergent Sheets: Because Clean Clothes Smell Good
It’s just a sheet! No need to pack a bulky bottle of detergent because even the small ones take up precious luggage space. Of course, you can buy some at your destination but if you are like me and like to pre-pack the essentials, these are perfect.
p.s. No plastic which also makes this eco-friendly.
8. Mini-Multi Plug Outlet: Never Run Out of Charging Ports
With all the gadgets we carry today, a mini-multi plug is a lifesaver. It allows you to charge multiple devices simultaneously, ensuring you are always powered up. Don’t forget your adapters!
9. Packing Cubes: Organized Packing Made Easy
These are my favorite!
Keep your suitcase neat and tidy with packing cubes. They help maximize space and keep your clothes wrinkle-free. No more digging through a messy suitcase to find what you need.
10. Travel Insurance with COVID-19 Coverage: Peace of Mind
In these uncertain times, having travel insurance with COVID-19 coverage is a must. It provides peace of mind, ensuring you’re financially protected in case of unexpected disruptions.
