Essential gadgets for safe, secure travel.

We love anything that makes travel more stress-free! Check out these ten must-have safety gadgets for travelers. 

Travel should feel exciting, liberating, and fun – which means when you travel, you don’t want to be preoccupied with safety! While a healthy amount of caution is always a good idea, you want to be able to relax on your vacation. We’ve rounded up 10 must-have items to provide you with peace of mind when you’re traveling the world.

  1. Portable locks: If you’re concerned about the locks in your accommodation, these little beauties can provide you with an extra layer of security in your room. They’re easy to install and easy to pack away when it’s time to head home.

  1. Doorstop alarm: For even more security in your room, pop a doorstop alarm under your door. If any unwanted guests try to visit unexpectedly, you’ll know about it!

  1. Personal alarm: There are a number of options, but we recommend at the very least one with a loud alarm and a light. Be warned – when they say these are loud, they mean it! These little devices will definitely scare off anyone with ill intent.

  1. Portable safe: These mini safes are compact and perfect to hold your valuables while you’re out for the day. Some are even small enough to pop into your backpack, to carry your valuables with you safely. And the attached cable is perfect for locking the safe around your beach chair while you’re in the water. 

  1. Anti-theft bags: Worried about sneaky pickpockets? Fear not – the anti-theft backpack is here to outsmart them. Anti-theft backpags are armed with lockable zippers, hidden pockets, and materials that will thwart any slash-and-grab attempts.

  1. RFID-blocking wallets: If you don’t have an anti-theft bag, at the very least be sure to get one of these. In this age of contactless everything, an RFID-blocking wallet is essential, stopping electronic pickpockets from scanning your cards and passports.

  1. Emergency power banks: Your gadgets are your lifeline, especially when you're off the beaten path. Keep them juiced with an emergency power bank. These portable chargers make sure your phone, GPS, and other essentials stay powered up. 

  1. Water purifier: If you’re heading out into the wild outdoors, a water purifier can ensure you never have to worry about whether water is safe to drink. This also comes in handy if you’re traveling somewhere where the tap water is questionable.

  1. First-aid kit: Bumps, bruises, and blisters – all little things, but capable of ruining a perfectly good day. Arm yourself with a personal medical kit for handling minor hiccups on the road.

  1. Travel insurance: OK, this isn’t a gadget, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t remind you how essential travel insurance is. Travel insurance can cover costs of mishaps, cancelled flights, and emergency medical care, as well as help you replace missing luggage or prescriptions. The extra small cost is well worth it for the peace of mind it provides!

A little bit of preparation provides value beyond measure when it comes to planning for safety while traveling. And the ability to enjoy your vacation without extra worries is priceless! Do you have any must-have safety gadgets you travel with? Drop us a line and let us know!
