1. Passport Holder Wallet, RFID Blocking
First things first, a trusty passport wallet with multiple sleeves is what every traveller needs. Sturdy and slim, PASCACOO’s black faux-leather passport holder has a magnetic clasp and slots for cash, cards, boarding pass, flight ticket and two SIM cards. What’s more, the wallet blocks Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), keeping your credit cards safe and secure. You also get a metal pin for the SIM slot on your phone.
2. Summer Silicone Luggage Tags (4-Pack)
These cheeky luggage tags brighten up your luggage, but also have another neat advantage - you’ll easily be able to pick out your bag from the rest, thanks to their unique design. The tags come with four luggage belts that you can use to secure your bags and give them another identifier. The tags are perfect for summer, and help set the mood for your vacation.
3. Tzowla Travel Laptop Backpack
The ideal hand luggage comes with compartments for every single thing you might need on the flight. Laptop, books, power bank, wallet, sunglasses and so much more can fit into Tzowla’s water-resistant backpack. There is a wide strap at the bottom for securing the bag to your suitcase handle, as well. With more than 20 compartments, the travel bag can fit anything, from 17-inch laptops to clothes. It comes with a USB charging port on the outside that you can link to your power bank inside.
4. Loop Experience Pro Earplugs
Ditch foam earplugs - they usually do not biodegrade and are terrible for the environment. Instead, invest in a pair of reusable, high-fidelity Loop Experience earplugs. They allow you to customise how much noise you want to filter down (so you can still hear the stewardess when she comes around to ask if you want a meal). The earplugs come in four different sizes so you can find the perfect fit, and their handy carry case ensures you can pack them away when you’re ready to stop wearing them.
5. NISHEL 4-Section Hanging Cosmetics Case
This spacious bag is ideal for toiletries or makeup essentials. Its water-resistant compartments have mesh pouches and elastic bands to hold your lotions, shampoo bottles or foundations upright.

Get organised and add this to your list of must-haves on your next trip!
