Thanks to the technological advancements we, as consumers, are continually exposed to, travelling has become a lot easier. Technology has certainly made its mark on the travel industry, that’s for sure.

Getting ready for a vacation isn’t always easy, but thankfully our modern world has it covered. Whether you’re searching for the best restaurants in your next holiday destination or reading up on the casinos with class in Las Vegas on a gambling blog, the coverage of various destinations is hugely detailed, alongside the ability to access apps and use different gadgets to enable us to best enjoy a trip. From smart luggage to a powerful and compact camera, travel gadgets help a holiday run that little bit more smoothly. The best ones aren’t always easy to find, though.

So, with that in mind, we thought we’d go through some of the best gadgets of the year to help you and your luggage travel in style, according to the experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute. Hopefully, at least one product on the list comes in handy and enables you to have a memorable vacation.

PowerCore 20100 Power Bank
There is nothing worse than running out of battery while you’re on a bus tour or on the way to meet friends in a location you’ve never been to before, which is why having a portable charger might appeal. When it comes to the PowerCore 20100 Power Bank, not only does it look incredibly slick, and is small and neat, but it also has two USB ports, making it possible to charge two mobile phones at the same time.

Osmo Mobile 2 Handheld Smartphone Gimbal
Capturing the best holiday snaps and videos can be a tough task without something like an Osmo Mobile 2 Handheld Smartphone Gimbal. It holds your phone and has built-in controls which enable it to sweep in one motion, without causing the shakes that a hand potentially would. If you’re keen to capture the best moments from your trip, then using something like the Osmo Mobile 2 Handheld Smartphone Gimbal is a great way to go about it.

Digital Burrito Pouch
Need something to store your loose cables, chargers and pens? That’s where the Digital Burrito Pouch comes in with its compact, smooth design, and its ability to tuck neatly away into your luggage without taking up too much room. Jansport have nailed this, especially for burrito lovers!

Tile Mate with Replaceable Battery
A vital tool for the clumsy traveller among us, the Tile Mate with its replaceable battery will put your mind at ease when it comes to the potential stress of losing a plane ticket or your passport. All you need to do is tuck one of Tile’s tiny Bluetooth devices into your holder, and you can keep track of everything all from your mobile device. This easy to grasp app has proved extremely popular in 2020.

Women’s Bomber 2.0
In need of a travel jacket? Admittedly, we’ve had some horrific products come our way in this space, but Baubax’s Women’s Bomber 2.0 bucks that unfortunate trend. The jacket has detachable gloves, a bottle opener, a whistle keychain, an eye mask, an inflatable neck pillow, and - most importantly of all - loads of pockets to help keep your belongings as close to you as possible. Best of all, though, is that the jacket looks good too. It’s subtle, comfortable and ideal for wearing while on the move.

Other travel gadgets worth checking out are SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker, OVO Travel-Size Iron and Steamer, Rohm Portable White Noise Sound Machine and Jetpack MiFi 8800L.
