Travelling Soon? Take These Trendy Tech Gadgets With You

We're celebrating the start of spring! And since President Ramaphosa lifted the ban on inter provincial travel, we know people have been itching to get away for a well-deserved springtime break. Who could blame you? If you're setting off on a summer holiday soon, take these cool tech gadgets with you. They're trendy and functional, and will make your trip so much easier...


Trendy tech gadgets to take when you travel



Power bank

These have been around for a while, but they really do come in handy. How many times have you run out of battery on a long car drive? Or mid-flight and you have a day of exploring planned before you reach your hotel? Now, there's no Google Maps to help you get where you're going. And you can forget about posting that perfect seaside lunch on Instagram. If you travel regularly, you won't regret adding a power bank to your backpack.

Portable Wi-Fi

Portable Wi-Fi routers, also known as Mi-Fi routers, have become pretty popular. They're battery-powered mobile devices that deliver an LTE connection to any Wi-Fi connected device. Not only are they handy when you're travelling and can't connect to a public Wi-Fi network, but they'll also get you out of a jam during load shedding.

Polaroid camera

For the old-school travellers among us. These cute cameras are all the rage, and for good reason. While most photographs these days are taken on a cell phone and immediately posted to various social media accounts - thereby digitised forever. There's something really special about capturing a moment and, moments later, holding that joyful image in your hand. And there's a perfect spot in your wallet for that treasured holiday happy snap.

Bluetooth speaker

A must-pack when you're travelling locally or abroad. Phone speakers just don't do music justice. And when you're lazing on the beach in Umhlanga or kicking back by the pool in Camps Bay, good tunes make all the difference. With a nifty portable bluetooth speaker, your favourite tracks are just a connection away.

Noise-cancelling headphones

These are often more for the journey than the destination. Stuck between two gossipy aunts on a long road trip? Don't really want to make conversation with your chatty airoplane neighbour? Or, hear them chewing for that matter. Noise-cancelling headphones will solve all your problems. And, if you've booked an interesting museum tour at your destination, you'll appreciate them there too. The good-quality headphones come with a price tag, but they'll be worth every penny.
