Practice makes perfect. The more you travel, the better you get at bringing exactly what you need and, more importantly, not bringing what you don’t need. Sure, you can buy something on your trip if you forget it, but it is always more expensive! To save yourself the headache, pack accordingly. If you don’t have the experience of being a seasoned traveler though, don’t worry. Here are the 10 best travel accessories for frequent travelers!
10. Glocalme G3 Mobile Hotspot
My wife loves the Amazon, and this year we decided that we would travel to Brazil to see it. It was a great trip and I loved it; however, planning the trip for July of a World Cup year was probably poor planning. If I had had the GlocalMe G3 Mobile Hotspot I wouldn’t have had to miss out on amazing soccer/football matches.
The GlocalMe G3 Mobile Hotspot gives you the chance to connect to the internet no matter where you are, and without roaming charges from your phone provider. The 4G LTE high speed network has a 50mbps max upload and 150mbps max download speed. Don’t worry about sharing either, as 5 devices can be connected to the hotspot. The battery lasts up to 15 hours and the device can also function as a traditional power bank.Check Price keyboard_arrow_right

8. Samsonite Electronic Luggage Scale
The villain of every travel experience is the airline. First, they take away our peanuts. Now, they are upping the fees for checked baggage. The heavier the bag, the more you will pay. Don’t let them win! The Samsonite Electronic Luggage Scale will tell you exactly how heavy your bag is before you get to the airport.
The scale registers up to 80 pounds, and includes a tape measure to ensure you carry-on luggage will fit in the overhead compartment. If your checked bag is getting a little heavy, and you can, transfer something to the carry-on bag. This is one of the best travel accessories to own for frequent travelers and your bank account will thank you.Check Price keyboard_arrow_right
7. Hearos Ear Plugs
Hostels can be great. They are cheap, clean, and usually found right in the city center. The one downside is that you never know who could be sleeping in the same room. With my luck, it is usually the world’s loudest snorer.
No worries with Hearos Ear Plugs. Their contoured shape is designed for a perfect fit, and the silky skin makes wearing them highly comfortable. So put them in, start counting those sheep, and challenge your bunkmates to snore their heart out.Check Price keyboard_arrow_right
