Howdy Michele,
I love to travel. I’ve read so many posts about travel gadgets, but you are the best one. Your article was beneficial in finding the necessary devices. I personally like an anti-theft shockproof backpack, which is ScanSmart TSA friendly and water-resistant. It is useful for everyone.

Michele December 6, 2019 - 11:53

Thank you so much, Kim :)

Collins Masimba October 7, 2019 - 10:18

Hello, I have gone through your guide and seems to be interesting though I have one more concern on the WiFi devices. Can you recommend me on the best Pocket Device that will work well on anywhere I travel. I have using AllDayWifi but its very slow on their international data plan. I have been considering RentnConnect though I know very little about it

Michele October 15, 2019 - 10:43

Hi Collins, have you considered this Skyroam device? It one of the leaders in the market and very compact.

Helen Austin July 30, 2018 - 11:07

What about this Trackimo 3G Travel Tracker device this has Light Exposure Sensor – detect/alerts when package or luggage is opened. I am currently using this tracker and i found this very useful to me every time i go travel around the world :)

Michele July 30, 2018 - 12:28

Excellent addition Helen, thank you :)

Aestherielle j. July 26, 2018 - 09:58

A tracking device would be a great addition to this list.

Stace July 2, 2018 - 04:57

Amazing! This makes traveling easier.

lea June 28, 2018 - 04:24

Definitely brilliant ideas worth sharing

Travel With Trang February 12, 2018 - 23:19

This IS such a cool list! I thought I had everything, but then I found out the door travel alarm (never would’ve thought of it)!. And I wonder how good the neck support (#33) is because there were PLENTY of times I could have used something like that on my trips.

Michele February 12, 2018 - 23:30

Hey Trang, the door alarm is such a great idea especially for those times when you just don’t feel safe :) Is there anything you’d add to the list?

Gerry October 27, 2019 - 20:35

I just carry a small rubber door stop wedge.

Mike Lee October 27, 2017 - 16:23

WOW! This is one extensive list of all things travel and certainly one that I will be using to give hints to my friends and family round the holiday season. The new ScanSmart backpack along with the waterproof phone case and solar charger are on top of my list. However my top two purchases are going to be the smart suitcase and the backpack which are absolutely brilliant. Thanks for such a cool list.

Susan Izzo August 7, 2017 - 18:45

Hi Michele,
There are all great ideas. I have one more suggestion for you. Smart Blanket! I used it when flying to Zurich to see my son and his family. The plane was freezing, and there were no blankets to be had. I was the only one that was warm and cozy for the whole 8 hours. I love mine. Got it on Amazon http://amzn.to/2hTYlOP I paid $49.00 for mine. Think they are having a sale on them now. Hope you like my suggestion.

Emily Wills July 6, 2017 - 22:21

The door alarm and aeroplane pillow are a great idea to stay comfy and safe! I always take an extension lead when I travel; so that I have more plug sockets in a hotel room, and it also means you don’t need as many adapters when you travel. You also can’t go wrong with baby wipes and small-ish plastic bags in case a seat is wet, a bottle is leaking or you’ve got a mark on your clothes! ✈️?

Michele July 6, 2017 - 22:41

All brilliant ideas Emily :) Thanks for sharing. I love the baby wipes idea!
