10 Cool Travel Essentials for Your Next Trip

Travel must-haves that put some punch in your packing!


(SPOT.ph) Yes, flight tickets and hotel reservations are important, but you must never overlook what’s in your bag. It’s easy to forget things, especially when you’re preparing for longer trips. Even a quick overnight trip can be a headache when you realize you forgot to pack an essential item. Here are 10 travel must-haves, perfect for your next getaway.



1. Balanzza Digital Scale (P1,850)

If you have a tendency to overpack (or overshop), a scale will save you from exceeding your baggage allowance. Trust us, no one wants to pay expensive additional baggage fees. Gone are the days when you had to get on a body weight scale with your bags then do the math. Invest in this lightweight digital scale that can carry as much as 100 pounds worth of baggage. Just lift your suitcase, wait for the beep, set it back down, and read the weight.

2. 3-pc Luggage Organizer (P1,810)

After finally perfecting your travel wardrobe, here comes the hard part: getting them all to fit in your bag. A luggage organizer will maximize valuable space and make the task of unpacking and re-packing a breeze. There are dozens of choices out there, but we love these cute organizers in Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella designs. The back is made of mesh material for quick identification.
