Travel Gadgets, Accessories and Tips

An organised and well packed suitcase is the perfect start to making sure that  wasted time remains at the bare minimum. Here’s a great list of small but mighty gadgets and accessories that can ease the stress of travel to a level which allows you to be free from disruptions.

Travel Wallet

Avoid the scramble for passports and tickets at the airport by getting a travel wallet, where travel money, tickets and passports can all be stored safely. Keep all your documents in this neatly organised Travel Wallet from Selfridges £18

5 Quick Travel Tips

It’s not just having everything you need that’s essential, it’s also having everything in order that’s just as important.

1.Don’t forget the plug adapters

Whilst cheap to buy here at home, travel adaptors bought at the airport or on holiday can be at extortionate prices… so it’s best to grab one in advance.

2.All Valuables in hand luggage

Whilst a rarity that airlines misplace luggage, it’s still best to keep your valuables on you at all times, even if it’s just for peace of mind!

3.The most necessary things go on top

Getting your tactics right when packing is essential, as there’s nothing more frustrating than having to dig around your suitcase for something, which then displaces everything in it!

4.Save your bag space for all your holiday purchases

An obvious tip, however you just never know what holiday mementoes you’ll be coming back with!

5.Roll your clothes for extra space

Rolling clothes will reduce wrinkles from appearing in the process of being folded! This is our top tip, as packing more in less space is the key to a stress free holiday 🙂
