These are super handy for any traveller to have in their backpack. These daypacks can fold up when not in use, to a compact little package, or pull it out when sightseeing to keep your water, travel guide and any other loose items in one place.

Packing cubes

I don’t even know if many travellers realise they need these – but they do. Take the hassle of having to unpack your entire backpack or suitcase trying to find 1 item. Keep your packing organised with these packing cubes use 1 for tops, 1 for bottoms and 1 for underwear. Everything has its place and is easy to find – perfect.

Flat pack toiletry bag

If you’re picking up a few packing cubes, it might be worthwhile to consider this toiletry pack as well. This bag keeps your toiletries organised and in place. The flat shape makes it easier to pack. There is even a section designed to deal with damp items. It also has a removable hook, so it can be easily hung and kept out of the way. Meaning less clutter around the bathroom sink.
