Every Cool-Girl worth the stamps in her passport will have packed the bare essentials – headphones, selfie stick, bikini/bomber jacket (depending on whether the sun is shining at her destination). But here’s some more travel gear you don’t realise you need (yet) when you set out on your next journey.

Luggage TagLuggage tag

Before the airline slaps a fugly tag on your bag, mark your own territory with this funky addition. This Alice in Wonderland-inspired luggage tag will also help you identify you suitcase on a carousel full of look-alike bags.  

Passport Cover

Converter Plug

Secret Money Holder

Carrying a secret fanny pack is very 1990s; instead upgrade to this cuff/secret money holder. It’s definitely pickpocket-proof.  

Handy Crumpled Map

No need to use it with caution, just squash or crush it and throw it in your bag. These crumpled maps are indestructible, soft, water-proof (in case you get caught in a downpour, maybe?) and can withstand rough usage.
