We may still be limited by travel restriction, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning for that much-awaited family holiday!
Perhaps you've been dreaming of visiting the Château de Montcaud in France or a tropical getaway in the Bahamas. If you're just about ready to book that flight once it's safe, keep this list of luxury travel essentials handy to make your trip easier and more memorable.
A high-quality camera to capture moments Your smartphone can probably already take great photos, but it's worth investing in a good quality camera to improve your shots even more. Tech Radar’s range of cameras give you options regardless of your photography skills.
For beginners, the Fujifilm X100V is ideal since it has an excellent sensor and autofocus system, resulting in better noise control and image quality. It will help you capture family memories you can cherish for many years to come.
A sleek pushchair to transport your children conveniently
When travelling, sometimes it’s best to experience a destination by foot. Whether you’re strolling along the cobblestoned streets of Italy or the narrow alleyways in Japan — it’s best to bring a good pushchair with sturdy wheels. The double pushchairs on iCandy show how easy it can be to get around and manoeuvre a pushchair even when you have multiple children with you. Tandem pushchairs, in particular, allow you to go down pathways a single pushchair could fit down because you sit one child in front of the other. And because the arrangement can be adjusted to be forward-facing, this allows both kids to enjoy their surrounding environment.
Power banks to charge your gadgets
You don't want to be caught short while you're navigating foreign neighbourhoods or trying to contact a family member. To charge on-the-go, power banks are your best bet. The Anker PowerCore 10000 is compact and lightweight, but supports fast charging and can power three iPhone 6s phones.
Meanwhile, the Solar Charging Hiluckey 25000mAh supports both power and solar charging. It doesn’t need bright sunlight to charge, and can juice up fine indoors as well.
Reliable bags for going around
Aside from your carry-on or duffle bag, you’ll need a separate bag to bring with you as you roam around. For something stylish, the Tumi Hagen Backpack is a versatile pick and can be paired with any polished outfit. It’s roomy and can even fit your gadgets and extra clothes. For your little ones, the Ophidia Printed Coated-Canvas Nappy Bag is an equally fashionable choice — boasting a Gucci-messenger style with many pockets and compartments to fit your baby’s needs.
A tablet to keep kids entertained You're bound to have some waiting time while travelling, such as when you're in transit or in line waiting to go on an attraction. To keep your kids from getting restless, tablets can provide immediate entertainment. You can load it with books, games, and films to keep them occupied. Digital Trends lists some of the tablets you can consider.
For instance, the iPad Air 2020 is lightweight and has a screen that’s perfect for films and games. But if you want your kids to have their own device, the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids provides them access to Amazon’s rich library of child-friendly apps, videos, and even educational content.
