For many years, it seemed like madness to consider weighing yourself down with technology or gadgets when traveling, particularly for the traveler on a budget. It not only meant luggage would weigh more, but it also increased risk in terms of potential damage or being targeted by thieves. However, the travel technology niche has been coming on in leaps and bounds recently, to the point where many travelers simply wouldn’t dream of going on a trip without certain gadgets and accessories. Here are 6 of the best luxury travel gadgets on the market today, which can make your journey a lot easier and more comfortable.
- Universal Plug Adapter
There’s no longer a need to take multiple plug adapters away with you, thanks to the all-in-one universal plug adapter. This single plug will fit a wide number of international outlets, meaning round multi-destination trips are no longer a power problem.
- Portable Charger
A portable USB charger is an absolute essential in the modern world, as it will enable you to recharge your phone or tablet when out and about. If you are going to be renting a car, you could also invest in a car charger, which will keep you topped up as you go. This is particularly useful if you want to use your phone for navigation or music as you drive, or letting kids play games without draining the battery. A solar phone charger is another option if you’re planning on being out in nature for long periods of time, or if access to electric power is unreliable.
- Strong and Weatherproof Phone Protection
Your phone will probably be your most important ally on your travels, storing not only your essential travel information such as hotel bookings, photos of your passport and airline tickets but also for giving you a research tool. To protect your phone from damage while you travel, you should invest in a high-quality phone case and screen protection such as the BodyGuardz iPhone 11 Pro.
- Noise-canceling Headphones
Noise-canceling headphones will be essential on long flights to help you shut out noise from other passengers, so you can relax and enjoy music or films. They may also come in handy if you’re staying in a shared room in a hostel.
- E-book Reader
If reading is something that you enjoy when trying to relax, an e-book reader will be a lifesaver on long trips. There are plenty of e-book reader brands to choose from to suit a range of budgets.
- Smart Luggage
Smart luggage and smart suitcases are still a new idea in terms of technological development, but when they become more widely available, they could completely revolutionize how we travel. They would enable you to use your smartphone to check how heavy your luggage is, its location, and whether or not it has been opened. Some even had USB charge points to power your devices. You can also add smart tracking devices to standard luggage to help you locate lost suitcases.
