Think about what you bring with you when you travel. Your travel bag contains all of the clothes you need, tech, reading material, etc. But there are certain things that can make travel smoother and they come in the form of accessories, such as an ID tag, specialized locks, and many others. After a whole lot of travel, these are the three travel accessories every traveler should have on hand.
Adapters and Surge Protectors
Have you ever gotten to a country and realized that the electrical sockets are completely different than those of your home country? Some people forget to do this very basic research which can lead to frustration when it comes time to charge your smartphone or laptop. You have to go to the front desk or your hotel and ask to borrow an adapter which they may not have. Always check to see that you know what kind of plugs will be at your destination such as European ones, and if there is a variation in voltage as you will need a surge protector then. The Epicka Universal Travel Adapter takes care of both.
Nowadays most luggage has a name tag built-in but adding a name tag to your luggage in a bright color or fun pattern can make your bag easy to pick out as it comes down the conveyor belt for collection. As well, if you are unlucky enough for your luggage to be lost in transit then you can tell the baggage claim to keep an eye out for it as they try to locate your bag. Some luggage tags are now GPS enabled which means you can locate your bag anywhere in the world. ReturnMe’s GPS tags are some of the best in the industry if you are heading off on a long journey.
If you have never used packing cubes to organize the innards of your luggage or backpack then you will never look at packing the same. They come in a variety of sizes and are geared towards all different things that need to be packed from toiletries to socks. You can pack and stack them within your backpack or suitcase which organizes and maximizes all of the space on offer. It also makes it easy to redistribute weight if you find your bag does not quite meet the maximum weight limit and you need to quickly remove something. The Zero Grid Packing Cubes travel organizer set will get you started.
