Cabin cases have come on leaps and bounds in the past couple of years and have become the perfect travel companion. Now, not only by storing your belongings, but also by protecting your laptop, providing a portable charging station, having GPS tracking built in, and some even include a built-in scale that lets you know its weight via an app!
Foot Rest Hammock
Yes, this really is a thing. Not exactly ground-breaking tech, but many of the best ideas are simple ones!
No longer do you have to uncomfortably rest your feet on the floor in your economy seat. With the footrest hammock you can sit more relaxed, feet (slightly) up, whilst reducing pressure on your back and neck. Not only does this work on planes, you can even install it under your office desk.
Portable Room Lock
When you are staying in a hotel there are, quite literally, hundreds of people who could potentially enter your room if they wanted to.
Protect your room from unwanted entries with a portable travel lock kit. This excellent little piece of kit is easy to fit by inserting the security bracket into the door latch and turning the door knob.
It works on virtually any hinged door that opens inwards.
Do you ever feel like you’re are forever searching through your bag, hunting down pens for your landing card, tugging at tangled cables and generally unable to find anything you really need? Well, that is all about to change.
There are a number of companies who have taken this problem to heart and created some wonderful, organizational masterpieces. Many of these used a solid shape wrapped and woven with elastic, meaning that you can slip in any of your accessories and they will be all held, tidily, in one place.
Another simple, yet necessary invention!

If this is the case, you need to get yourself a portable collar fixer! These nifty little fashion savers are easy to fit. You just lift the collar, pop in a collar fixer to the collar stay pocket, fold it back down and et voila! A perfectly sculpted collar.
Have you ever been assured that there would be free Wi-Fi on your travels, only for that to be a little bit of a lie?
How many times have you connected to the Wi-Fi, with the little Wi-Fi symbol nicely lit up, and still no internet?
You can now rent hotspots that you can take on your travels to make sure that you are always connected. All you have to do a rent a hotspot from one of the multiple options out there, turn it on, activate a pass and off you go!
Unfortunately, there is nothing available yet that stops jet leg, but as soon as there is, you will be the first to know! Fingers crossed…
