Bluesmart Smart Suitcase

Before you hit the airport, take care of your packing with the mindblowing Bluesmart Smart Suitcase – a secure, connected case that we think is the future of baggage.

First and foremost, it’s an amply-sized case for all your family’s packing. But it’s what’s inside that really counts – and we’re not talking about your undies. A built-in GPS tracker helps you locate your case if it gets lost, or track your trips with pinpoint accuracy. With digital locking, you can open and close your case remotely from your smartphone. And with handy connection ports, you can plug your phone, tablet and even your laptop into your case for charging. This luggage bag is a life saver making it one of our favourite Essential Travel Gadgets.

The Airport Jacket

Taking useful travel accessories to the next level. Still, in development, the Airport Jacket is one of those seemingly insane ideas that just might catch on. As the clever name suggests, it’s a jacket for wearing through the airport. The twist? It’s packed with pockets and sleeves to help you carry up to 30 pounds of possessions right onto the plane.

From your laptop to a handful of different outfits, it all slips effortlessly into the jacket’s numerous pockets. Then, once you’re on-board, the jacket transforms into a compact duffle bag. This useful travel accessory doesn’t look like the most comfortable way to start your trip but, if it helps us avoid those excess baggage fees, we’re very interested!

Hammacher Schlemmer Sandless Beach Mat

We all love the sight of clean, warm sand as it edges towards the calm blue sea. But let’s be honest – sand in all the wrong places is a fast road to beach irritability and family fall-outs!

That’s where the Sandless Beach Mat comes in. Using military technology, it’s a light, comfortable beach mat that instantly filters sand the moment it lands on top. Meanwhile, the woven mesh means that, while sand filters down, it never comes up through the bottom of the mat.

It’s a simple yet effective way to stay comfortable on a long beach day. We’re never going back to a sandy towel again.

Since you’re only using one SIM card, you can share your connection with the entire family – and only pay one charge as opposed to individual fees for every device. It’s the ideal addition to your luggage whether you’re looking for ways to keep the kids entertained or making sure you don’t miss out on the latest updates from your favourite travel blog.
