Cool gadgets to make traveling easier, safer and more fun
Taking a trip doesn’t mean you have to leave all the conveniences of your favorite technology at home!
Many gadgets allow you to take tech conveniences with you while making your travel adventures easier, safer, and more enjoyable. Some will even help improve the way you capture all those memorable moments.
Gadgets that make traveling easier
Packing for every trip is a challenge. Space is limited whether by air, rail or road. Compression packing cubes squeeze out all the extra air, allowing you to pack more items in your luggage. Plus, they keep items separate by type, owner, or tag, whichever works best for your needs. With all that extra space, consider a carry-on scale to make sure you’re not paying extra for an overweight bag.
One of the most common headaches when traveling is getting lost. Car mounts keep your phone and GPS map on the dashboard where they are easy to see. GPS watches show you the way when you’re on trails and away from your home base. And for visiting foreign countries where you don’t speak the language, digital translators are a gadget worth the small investment for directions and other travel needs!
Being away from the comforts of home is a challenge. Luckily, with items like travel irons and portable travel coffee makers, you can take some of these conveniences with you. Since many tech devices rely on electricity and WiFi, you can ensure you’re never without by bringing a solar phone charger and WiFi hotspot.
Gadgets that make traveling safer
Protect yourself and your belongings with these handy gadgets. A water purification bottle allows you to safely drink, whether you’re out in the woods or when you’re unsure about the quality of the local tap water. Portable safes are secure bags that lock valuables in your room or in public places like the beach.
Do you want the same sense of security that your home alarm system offers? These portable door alarms warn you of someone trying to break into your hotel room or rental property, and some even act as a door jam.

Gadgets that make traveling more fun
Anyone with children knows the need for entertainment during long car or plane journeys. But these entertainment devices are fun for adults too! Bring the gaming with you with these phone controller devices that turn your phone into a remote control. With portable streaming devices from Roku, Amazon, Apple and more, you don’t have to leave your favorite streaming channels at home either. And tablet holders keep devices secure for backseat viewing and gaming.
For your music entertainment, Bluetooth noise canceling headphones offer high-quality wireless options. Or if you want to share your music with others, Bluetooth speakers bring the music party to the living room, beach or pool. They’re also great for listening to podcasts or boosting volume when streaming on portable devices.
Gadgets to improve your travel photography
Selfie sticks get rid of all those awkward arm’s length photos. Instead, use these extension sticks with remote controls or Bluetooth to capture the perfect shot or video. Go Pros popularized action cameras, but they’re not the only game in town anymore! Are you ready to capture your action-packed holiday on camera? Features to consider include battery life, image quality, stability, and whether it’s waterproof.
Traveling, while fun, takes us out of our comfort zone and objects. New technical devices can make our lives easier and more pleasant. And technology designed specifically for travel helps us feel at home anywhere in the world.
