Travelling is something we get so excited for and are always counting down the days until take off. But once our adventure has begun, things can go wrong that can taint some of our vacation days. And who wants that? Many people have gone through the same experiences and have decided to create the smartest little accessories to carry with them on their trips. We’ve compiled a list of items you won’t believe exist, and once you buy them, you’ll wonder how you survived without them.

5. Bluesmart One

Bluesmart One is truly the most secure bag we have seen. It is secured and controlled by an app on your phone. It will notify you if you have walked too far away from your suitcase, and it will automatically lock as well. USB ports are one of the coolest features for this piece of luggage so you can charge your phone anywhere. Just remember to charge your suitcase the night before you travel.
