Top tech for the next time you travel

Picture this: You’re in Paris. You’re at the base of the Eiffel Tower. You look up and see how tall it stands, how massive it actually is and impressive it would look on your Instagram. You go to grab your phone to take a quick photo, but the battery’s dead and you won’t be home for hours. If you can figure out how to get there without Google Maps…

Not fun!

We’ve all been there. Which is why, if you don’t know that you don’t go anywhere on any holiday without at least one power bank, an iPad, or at very least a laptop, you’re kind of asking for trouble.

But worry not; thankfully there are brands and people out there whose sole purpose it is to make your travelling experience less stressful and more techy than ever before.

We’ve done a round-up of some favourite tech for your travel, and here it is.
