If you’re planning to travel at some stage this year, you may be considering which accessories are the best to ensure you have everything you need while you’re on the go. Luckily, we’ve done the research for you, so here are the best accessories for your next trip:
A good wallet
One of the best things you need while travelling is a good wallet. Ideally, you want it to have multiple compartments- especially if you’re visiting multiple destinations with different currencies and know you’re the type to have extra money left over.
Another good option is an . This keeps your iPhone and your wallet together so you don’t need to continually be patting your pockets to check you have both your phone and your money safe, and an also makes it much easier to travel light- without the need for a purse or backpack.
A passport case
A stylish passport case is one of those things you never think you need, until you finally buy one and realise your life is so much easier with one. You’ll find them invaluable when you have multiple boarding passes, and some also include handy pockets for credit cards or even space for international sim cards so you can keep your most important things handy.
There’s little doubt that all travellers need noise cancelling headphones, and these are another accessory that you won’t realise is critical until you’ve got a pair on your head. Whether it’s the toddler causing havoc mid-flight, or your overly-chatty seat mate, consider the QuietComfort 25 from Bose. You’ll be able to shut out the world and easily let your inner introvert out to play.
There are so many different types of luggage on the market that it can be easy to get a little overwhelmed and spend hours trying to find the perfect type. For hand luggage, you want something that can be easily wheeled through airports and onto the plane, is small enough to meet even low-cost European airline’s standards, and light enough that you can fill it with all your essentials and still be able to lift it into the overhead bin by yourself.
Check out the Rimowa Limbo Cabin Multiwheel, which only weighs 8.4 pounds and is incredibly easy to manoeuvre (plus it looks incredibly sleek as well). Not to mention, if you push the handle down you can even use this luggage as a seat.
If you’re going to drop your phone, you’re probably going to do it when you can least afford to be without it- usually when you’re travelling and really need Google Maps and to connect with friends and family. The worst thing you can do is leave your phone without a case and completely unprotected, so consider a cute which will allow you to keep your phone safe without making it also look bulky and ugly.
