Beurer LS06 luggage scales

Everyone knows the painful moment of doubt when you are preparing to put your suitcase on the scales at the check-in counter at the airport. Wasn’t the suitcase lighter when you buttoned it at home? The last thing you want to do now is make an exorbitant fee for overweight or hastily put on extra clothes and sweat in it on the plane. An easy solution to the problem is the baggage scales.

This small and portable gadget is incredibly useful. Weigh your suitcase at home with the Beurer LS06 luggage scales and immediately shift the extra things, instead of transferring everything in a frantic hurry on the cold floor of the airport under the curious looks of others. The price at Amazon is $14.38.

Trtl travel pillow

There are thousands of kinds of various road cushions on the market. The overwhelming majority is simply awful. The rest are either frankly strange, or too bulky to travel with them. The Trtl travel pillow, fortunately, does not belong to either category. It is quite cute, comfortable and folds up to an almost flat state. It was scientifically proven to be much more convenient and useful for your neck than U-shaped pillows. The price of ‎$29.99 is also very affordable. Take my money!

Trakdot luggage tracker

Has your luggage ever end up on a different continent? Such trouble can seriously spoil the beginning of a well-deserved vacation. Sometimes the return journey of baggage takes an extra day, but sometimes its journey can last for weeks.
