Most of us were unable to travel at all for the past year and a half, so if you can finally take a trip in 2021, you want to make the most of it. Getting ready for a trip is always tricky, but if you pack well, you can rest assured that your vacation will be a breeze. No matter if you’re going somewhere tropical or prefer a winter adventure, these 2021 must-have best travel gadgets will come in handy. Make space in your luggage for the following:

Travel Gadgets for Your 2021 Adventure

Packing cubes

Let’s start from the basics: good old packing cubes. If you’re not a very organized traveler, these can save you a lot of time and nerve. Invest in durable, lightweight and thin packing cubes that will save you space in your suitcase or backpack and ensure everything is easy to locate.

Smart suitcase

Smart suitcases are still in their early development days, but we already have a few products on the market that can ensure easy luggage tracking, weight check and safety measures. Many suitcases on the smart side even allow USB charging options. If you’re not ready to invest in something so high-tech, you can simply buy a tracking device for your luggage and step into the world of smart travel.

Outlet adapter

International trips are the best and most exciting since you can get to know cultures that are greatly different from yours. However, many countries use a much different outlet and plugs than yours, so you have to come equipped with adapters so you can use your electrical devices and charge your gadgets. Before, we had to pack a bag full of different adapters and check which one is the right one for your destination, but these days are gone. Now you can rely on an all-in-one adapter with a built-in extender for European plugs. Most of these universal adapters have all options imaginable and are made with durability in mind, so you can always have access to electricity.

Digital luggage scale

Here’s another gadget every traveler needs until smart suitcases become an everyday occurrence—luggage scales. If you tend to overpack, you can grab an affordable and practical luggage scale from the well-equipped Shoppster website and never deal with overweight luggage fees again. If you’re an avid shopper and want to come back home with a suitcase full of souvenirs, you don’t have to worry about overfilling your luggage.

Noise-canceling headphones

Gadgets to take travelling – When you travel, you might be looking for some peace and quiet to take a nap or enjoy your book, but that can be impossible with crying kids on the plane, racket of noisy old-school trains or partying in busy hostels.

Handheld camera stabilizer

We all want crisp footage and photos from our adventures, but if you’re planning to hold your phone in your hand, expect very shaky results. To get the smoothest content, grab a handheld stabilizer for your phone and come back home with professional-looking footage and great photos even when riding on an ATV or jumping out of a plane.

Portable charger

One of the most annoying and dangerous things that can happen while traveling is getting stuck in the middle of nowhere with your phone’s battery rapidly dying. Luckily, if you have a small USB portable power bank in your pocket, you can always keep your gadgets charged. There are very cheap battery chargers, but these are known to fail quickly, so investing in something of quality is worth every cent.

Travel speaker

Every single thing can be made better with music, traveling included, so make sure to pack a small Bluetooth speaker and take it with you on your adventures. Something small yet durable won’t take too much space (some even come with carabiners so you can clip them on your bag) and won’t give up on you after half an hour. If you’re hitting the beach, consider the waterproof option so you don’t have to worry about splashing.

Pocket water filter

If you often exhibit stomach problems when traveling, the first thing you should look into is contaminated drinking water. A small water filter that fits into a bottle is a perfect gadget for every traveler with a sensitive stomach, especially those traveling to a faraway destination like Middle East, Africa or Asia which are known for unsafe tap water. These are also suitable for remote wilderness locations where you don’t have any access to tap water and need to rely on your stocks or stream water. Your water bottle with a filter will provide protection against viruses, bacteria, heavy metals and chemicals, so you can quench your thirst without any issues.

Foot warmers

If you love to explore Northern regions and enjoy cold-weather activities, you can stay warm and comfortable with foot warmers. Gadgets like heated insoles will keep you toasty in snow, frost and low temperatures. These are equipped with high-tech thermal technology designed to keep your toes warm and dry with a thermostat-driven control system and water-resistant fabric.

Travel-sizes iron and steamer

This one is for all business travelers and those looking for love abroad. If you have some business meetings or dates planned on your trip, you need a portable iron and steamer to look put together and fresh.

Sun/Insect protection clothing

This might not be a gadget per se, but high-tech clothing is definitely futuristic and practical. Today, there are companies that make pants, shirts and socks that have built-in protection from sun and insects thanks to their UV protection and EPA-certified insect repellent properties. Besides, this type of clothing is also lightweight and breathable, therefore perfect for all sorts of outdoor activities.

If you’re planning a big 2021 adventure, make space in your luggage for these gadgets and high-tech gear and you’ll have a comfortable trip. Not only that, but you’ll also get to enjoy many comforts of home and come back with memories you will cherish forever!
