We’ve all been there before and forgot to buy that all-important item we need before travelling abroad. Whether it’s more sun cream, a travel adaptor or a travel pillow for the journey, it definitely pays to be organised and to buy your travel accessories from Amazon in advance.
The beauty of online shopping right now is that it’s extremely quick, easy and inexpensive to buy most of the essential travel accessories you will ever need in one place. There are hundreds of choices on line, but if time is short and you still want to have some choice in terms of price range, brands and quality, you could do worse than opting for Amazon and that’s where we’ve focussed in this article. Amazon have a whole dedicated travel accessories section for you to browse and to help inspire you for what you might need on your next trip. To help save you some time going through all the products and categories, we’ve come up with a list of 10 of the most commonly bought and essential Amazon travel accessories that you should consider purchasing for your next trip!
There are plenty of different styles and ranges of travel pillows on Amazon. From a standard travel neck pillow, a blanket style options to technology enhanced pillows with headphones or electronic massagers. One of the highest rated and reviewed Amazon travel pillow is the ‘Power of Nature’ memory foam neck and head support pillow and for £14.99, it’s a great buy! If you’re looking for a kid-friendly travel pillow the BCOZZY is one of the best options to go for and rated very highly.
Having a decent travelling bag is important for many reasons but most importantly it should be sturdy and protect all your clothes and essential travelling items. A good place to find travelling bags is on Amazon as they have plenty of reliable options from well-known brands to reasonably priced alternatives. The Aerolite lightweight suitcase is the perfect choice for maximizing your luggage size allowance and also providing a lightweight option – so you don’t waste your valuable allowance on the luggage itself.
Ensuring your travel money and valuables are safe when travelling should always be a priority. The money belt range offers quite a few good options from a bum bag style to a cross-body strap bag, whatever design or style you want there is definitely an option on Amazon for you. We suggest the Alpha Keeper money belt as it’s one of the highest rated on Amazon with nearly 5,000 positive reviews and because of its versatility and security features.
It’s essential that whenever you go travelling you make sure that your passport is always kept in a safe place. There are lots of great options for passport holders on Amazon. A highly rated and an ‘Amazon choice’ option to go for is the ‘dayday’ passport holder which not only acts as passport holder but also has storage compartments to keep other valuables in.
It’s always better to be safe than sorry when travelling. If your travelling bag ever gets lost it’s always best to have some means of contacting you on it. You can easily do that with a luggage tag from Amazon. The OCTiLUX luggage tag is only £5.99 and with free delivery its also highly reviewed because of the quality, the value for money. Its easy to use and it keeps your privacy protected by only showing your name whilst attached to your luggage. This enables people to get in contact with you if your luggage goes missing, whilst still keeping your contact information confidential.
There’s nothing worse than leaked toiletries or liquids that ruin all your clothes or travelling equipment in your bag. That’s why it’s wise to invest in a decent travelling toiletry bag on Amazon that will keep all your liquids and cosmetics secure, compact and tidy in your luggage. The Hikenture toiletry bag is a strong and flexible option as it can be hanged anywhere and has lots of protected compartments to keep different cosmetics, liquids and toiletries secure.
Keeping your money, travel cards and any valuables safe is a top priority when travelling. There are plenty of great travel wallets on Amazon that have secure compartments to keep all your valuables safe and less likely to fall out. The Vemingo Travel Wallet is rated highly by customers and is Amazon recommended. It also has RFID blocking material which means it makes it extremely hard for scammers to scan your contactless cards to steal money from your card without you even knowing. When going travelling in busy or well-known tourist areas, it’s important that you have the travelling gear that keeps you protected.
Some suitcases come with internal straps to keep all your clothes and travelling gear compact and tidy, but sometimes your suitcase is still too big and bulky which is why an Amazon luggage strap can come in handy! A colourful strap also helps to identify your case in the airport. The BlueCosto luggage strap is a great buy, as for £4.98 (with free delivery) you get 2 straps to secure your bag.
Wherever you’re travelling to, it’s vital that you have a quality Amazon travel adaptor that works for that country or region so you can charge vital electronics such as your smartphone, power bank supply, camera and speakers. The Lencent USB charger is perfect for those looking for a versatile adaptor that can be used worldwide, as not only does it have 4 USB ports to change multiple devices, it also has several socket plugs that you can easily switch out for wherever you are travelling in the world, be that Europe, UK, Australia or USA. The Lencent is an ideal option as it’s is classified as Amazon’s recommended choice and has thousands of 5-star reviews.
We all know that suitcases can be flung around a bit when travelling and in airports, so it’s not a bad idea to give it some extra protection with an Amazon suitcase cover. It’s a really handy item to have so you use it to identify your suitcase when collecting it at baggage reclaim. Some covers are easily washable so it means it also gives some protection to your case. The TOGEDI cover is one of the top ones available on Amazon and is anti-scratch, easily washable and super-elastic making it easier to put over your case.
