13 Travel Gadgets you Need to Have This Year

Safe travel is paramount whether on the open road or taking a flight.

Many travel gadgets on the market are designed to increase your safety. Others are simply there for a bit of fun or to make your journey more comfortable. Here are 13 gadgets you need to have in 2023.

1. Fingerprint Lock

Security is everything when you travel. Just because you have insurance doesn't mean you want to deal with stolen items or burst cases. An airport security-friendly fingerprint lock is the perfect solution. 

It responds to your fingerprint, and you can store as many as five, and the battery can last half the year. You can sit back and enjoy your trip, knowing that the only person who can access your luggage is you. 

2. Noise-Cancelling Headphones 

One of the worst parts of traveling is dealing with other people. Whether they chew loudly or insist on loudly speaking on the phone, you won't hear any of it if you invest in a high-quality set of noise-canceling headphones. They're a must. 

3. Power Bank 

Most people travel with their phone, an e-reader, a tablet, or a laptop. So, a power bank will ensure your devices are fully charged as you travel. Everyone knows that airport charging stations are always busy, so remove the stress of finding an open outlet and invest in a powerful power bank. In addition, there are wireless options; some fully charge in as little as three hours. 

4.  Camera Detector 

There are risks when you travel, and hidden spy cams are one of those risks. It isn't just the idea that someone might be spying on you; someone could be recording your moves to use as blackmail. 

But you can avoid all of that by purchasing a hidden camera detector. A physical product offers wireless detection, a solid battery life, long-range detection, and infrared scanning. So, whether you're staying at an Airbnb or a hotel, you can ensure it's safe. You can also download an app on your phone to check for hidden cameras. 

5. Portable Espresso Machine

Not every gadget has to have a "practical" use. Sometimes it's a handy treat that will save you a fortune as you travel. A portable espresso machine is a handheld, grind your beans and churn out piping hot, delicious espresso. 

6. Electric Brake Controller

If you love camping and are traveling with a caravan, an electric brake controller is a must-have because it makes it safer to drive while also helping to avoid jackknifing.

7. Travel Pillow 

Everyone needs a travel pillow that offers comfort in every direction and is breathable. Even better if you pick up a fully adjustable pillow that also offers Bluetooth connection and will hold or accommodate your headphones. 

8. All-in-one Charging Cable 

What if you could travel with just one charging cable? One cable to charge them all! Yes, Lighting, USB, micro USB, USB-C, and beyond. You can mix and match to charge whatever you need to and avoid the mess of cables you usually deal with when you travel. 

9. Binoculars 

It's not just trainspotters and bird watchers that pack binoculars on their travels. If you love hiking, want to take super-zoom photos, or want to get a better view, HD binoculars are a must for every traveler. Opting for HD reduces glare intensity, improves light transmission, and provides unmatched resolution and contrast. 

10. Travel Shaver 

A mini shaver is an excellent investment if you are a frequent traveler. Unlike bulky shavers, a small version is super portable and uses a USB-C to charge, so it is easy to pack. They offer a pretty close shave as well. And when you're at home, you can pop it in your briefcase or backpack or keep it in your glovebox for emergency shaves. 

11. Smart Luggage


Smart luggage is a total game changer. They offer built-in power banks so you can charge your devices on the go and fingerprint sensors for extra security. With cutting-edge technology and excellent storage, you won't want just one.

12. Wireless Audio Connector 

Believe it or not, this handy connector will connect your wireless earbuds or headphones to the airplane TV. It has solved a problem that a lot of people have yet to realize they have. 

13. Smartphone Mount 

If you want to take mind-blowing photos, a smartphone mount is a great way to get started. A motorized mount turns your phone into your own camera person. 

You can use a remote to control it or a phone app. It will help you take stunning panoramics, capture incredible time lapses, and even track objects. It provides fully automatic, smooth 360° rotation. It's also tripod friendly, which means your social media game is about to take several giant leaps. 

Travel gadgets can make your life more organized, manageable, and memorable. So grab some of those mentioned above for your next adventure, and you're sure to have a great time.
