Best Travel Gadgets of 2017

Ooh how we love travel gadgets! We can’t wait to show you what’s new and more importantly, what’s handy! Check out our favorite selection of Travel Gadgets 2017!

The Secrid Wallet
Have you heard of paying without entering your pincode? Well, it’s a new paying method introduced in The Netherlands recently which makes your grocery shopping about 5 seconds quicker but that doesn’t always mean it’s safe. When your card has one of those chips, skimmers can easily walk past you and skim your card without even stealing it. Yep, it has happened. The Secrid wallet is made out of a aluminium material which blocks this. And that’s just the safety part. The Secrid Wallet is also ultra thin so easily fits into your pocket and comes in several stylish designs. Bonus: your cards will pop up in an instance and make you look, well, pretty cool if you ask us. (Bond girl 3.0?) www.secrid.com

Smart Padlocks
If you’re bringing a padlock on your travels, you might lose the key (yes, it has happened to us!) The lock tracks who has unlocked it, where and when. Just connect with NFC or Bluetooth and you are the only one that get’s access. Get it at www.egeetouch.com

Solar chargers
Go green is what it’s all about these days and solar chargers are huge in travel land. We own a Waka Waka charger but there are many more chargers to choose from. News site The Independent wrote an article about the 8 best solar chargers on the market. Check it here.

Inflatable bubble tent
OMG, this is something we all want to own! Maybe it’s a good investment for you and your friends. I’m sure you can charge people to sleep here ;-). Buy it from Amazone from eh..900 dollars. (still worth it!)

Blue Ridge Camping Hammock
It’s he best camping hammock out there in our opinion. You can safely sleep here, even if the surface on the ground isn’t suitable to put up a tent, you just tie this hammock in between 2 trees and you’re good. Get yours for 199 dollars at www.lawsonhammock.com

Stylish passport holders
It’s the one thing you can’t travel without. Your passport. You might as well keep it in a stylish looking pasport holder right? We love the one from Rituals (header photo) . but there are soooo many out there. What’s your favorite?

Selfie drone
The selfie stick is soooo 2015. Make way for the selfie drone! It’s tiny, it’s social and it’s cool. BUT (yes, there is a but) it’s not cheap folks. At £399 it’s a pretty high investment but eh, you’re gonna be the coolest traveler on the planet! www.us.yuneec.com

Flexsafe
We’ve all had this issue before..you want to go for a swim but you don’t want to leave your stuff unattended. One of your friends or partner has to stay behind to look after your belongings. Flexsafe is the solution! It’s water resistant and you can attach it to chairs, poles or your bicycle. You can buy it for less than €40,-.

  1. Some great nifty travel gadgets there, Secrit Wallet has become a necessity because as you said I am
    wary of the new technology. I love the inflatable bubble, that’s just so cool, and am planning to invest in a drone real soon – any suggestions? Thanks, my Christmas list just got bigger.
