When packing for travel, there are a lot of decisions to make on what’s essential to take versus what you may not need. Space is precious, and even small items can take up a lot of room. So don’t let packing get in the way of what travel is intended to be – time away from your day-to-day life.
Alternatively, if you are traveling for work, you might need all those electronic odds and ends to be productive. Cords, accessories, and other items have to be considered.
While the mad dash of travel can be a journey unto itself, this list is designed to help you focus on the important items for travel for both pleasure and work.
1. Travel Bundle / Power Kit
These come in a variety of sizes and styles, so you’ll want to shop around for the one that best fits your needs. Cords and cables essentials, when all in one package, are unbeatable when traveling.
2. Universal Travel Power Adapter
Going to a country where the electrical plug might be an issue? Always check before you go. If voltage is different, then a handy power cord adapter is what you are looking for.
Noisy crowds can really affect your mood. Music and movies are the key to keeping calm. Get a great pair of noise-cancelling headphones to make your trip more about you than the people around you. You can get buds, full ear coverage, or just about anything in between. Go cordless for an even better experience (but make sure your in-flight entertainment supports wireless headphones).
4. Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Whether it’s in your hotel room or poolside, a portable speaker makes travelling more fun. There are many options in a variety of sizes and price points.
5. Back-up Charger
You never know when you might lose your charger. Honestly, it’s happened to the best of folks, and when you are without one and can’t get a replacement quickly, you’ll be glad you brought an extra one.
6. Portable Power Pack
Power banks are excellent for road trips, especially if you’re traveling in a group. You’ll have your very own source of power for your phone and other smart accessories on you. It’s a must-have for those on the go, go, go.
