We are living in a world of endless possibilities where everything is available from our fingertips. In recent years technology has been created that has revolutionised the way we travel and the time we spend on holiday forever.

Whether you are a big into technology and design, or you just want to make your life easier, there will be an invention that is right up your street! We have compiled a list of our favourite travel gadgets that will change the way you travel forever…

Reading tablets:

Reading tablets have been around for quite a few years now, but continue to grow and transform into these beautiful pieces of technology with every update. If there is nothing you love more than sitting in the sunshine reading a good book, but hate to bring a bag full of holiday books with you, then you are in the right place.

Reading tablets can store thousands of books at one time, meaning that you will never get bored reading the same plot, or annoyed at the progression of the characters… you can simply pick something else and start again. The best part about this is that the battery lasts for ages and the lightweight feel of the tablet means that it’s easy to carry around with you.

Sand free mat:

The beach is the safe haven for many holiday goers and quite rightly so! There is nothing more relaxing that making sandcastles, playing in the sea and playing in the rockpools. This is one of the most time old family pastimes and always makes for a good memory.

One of the biggest issues that people have with the beach is getting sand absolutely everywhere, it’s almost inescapable… we say almost because there is now a new beach mat that doesn’t collect any sand at all. This is made of a very fine mesh material that the sand is able to fall through. Perfect for family days at the beach!

Travel pillows:

Have you ever gone through the motions of bunching up your sweatshirt to lean against the plane window with? Only to become frustrated because it’s so uncomfortable? Now you don’t have to!

Trtl travel have introduced a mechanically engineered travel neck pillow that supports your neck as you sleep. This will prevent you from ever struggling to sleep on a plane again.


It’s quite difficult to think back to a time when smartphones didn’t exist, but surprisingly, it has been only little over 10 years since the first smartphone has been introduced. Smartphones make everything so much easier, information is readily available at our fingertips, which is especially useful for travel.

Not only this, but there are also lots of applications that you can use when you travel, for example language apps, which can help to teach you how to speak a language and can help you out when you are travelling.
