4. Small Power Bar
Many times, travelers find themselves jockeying for the only outlet in a gigantic airport lounge or restaurant full of people. Make friends with other desperate travelers by bringing a small power bar, which can be plugged into the single outlet and shared between a few people. This can also save you time by charging all your devices at once, so you don’t have to wait around while everything charges individually.

5. Duct Tape
Although it seems like in everyday life, people use duct tape to solve all their problems, many people don’t think to bring any when they go on vacation. Save yourself from bringing the whole roll by wrapping a few strips around a travel mug, or pill bottle. This way, you can rip off exactly what you need when you need it. Use it to fix broken luggage, or even splint broken fingers or toes. Duct tape can truly be used for anything if you use your imagination!

6. Reusable Water Bottle
In many parts of the world, water fountains are not readily available, and tourists are accustomed to buying multiple bottles of water per day to quench their thirst after walking and sightseeing. Cut down on plastic waste and excess expense by bringing a reusable water bottle from home. Save money all day long by filling it up wherever you find water available.
