It’s shaping up to be a very strange year for weather. It doesn’t seem to matter which part of the country you live in, it’s already been a really long winter.

A great way to get away from the arctic blasts is to fly away to a warm-weather destination. That’s why many people plan vacations this time of year.

Are you ready for the big trip? If not, don’t worry Amazon can help.

Hit the road with great travel gear from Amazon

Stop criminals in their tracks

Whenever you travel, security is always a concern. With innovative technology, criminals can rip you off without ever touching your credit or debit cards.

But not if you have RFID blocking technology built-into your wallet or purse. This Zoppen multi-purpose RFID blocking travel passport wallet will do the trick.

Keep identity thieves away and protect your personal information with its RFID blocking shield material. It has a passport pocket, room for a boarding pass, three credit card slots, an ID slot, a sim card pouch, a cellphone pouch and more.

You can order one from Amazon for under $14. It could end up saving you big time.


Stay comfortable on that long plane ride

The last thing you want when you finally reach your destination is a sore neck. Let’s face it, airplanes aren’t the most comfortable places to spend huge chunks of time.

You can make it a little more comfortable though with this Everlasting Comfort memory foam neck pillow and travel kit.

The pillow is ergonomically designed with orthopedic raised lobe contouring on either side that allows your neck and head to lean comfortably. It even has a small elastic pocket that fits your smartphone so you can listen to your favorite music or podcasts.

The kit includes a padded adjustable sleep mask and memory foam earplugs, so you can rest in full comfort.

Get yours from Amazon for under $25. Order now while you’re thinking about it so you’re ready for your next awesome vacation.

You’ve got the tablet, the laptop and the phone, check. You’re all set to hit the road.

But wait, what happens when they all run out of juice? You won’t have to worry about that ever again with this Power Packer tech accessory organizer bag.

Easily store all your power cables, USB chargers, extension cords, adapters, plugs, flash drives and more when you’re on the move.

This sturdy travel case keeps your valuable electronic accessories safe while optimizing your bag space.


Be prepared for emergencies

Vacations are the perfect time to explore nature. There’s no better time to be adventurous and get out of your comfort zone to check out all the beauty Mother Nature has to offer.

But that might lead you off the beaten path a little and find yourself in the middle of nowhere, without enough supplies to make it through the night.

This LifeStraw personal water filter is a way to make sure you have water that’s safe to drink, no matter the source. It removes bacteria and parasites.
