7 Even Weirder Travel Gadgets You'll Definitely Want to Buy

Here at Airfarewatchdog, we love travel accessories and gadgets. From the coolest travel pillow to luggage trackers, we love anything that can make traveling more comfortable and fun. Not too long ago we gave you some really bizarre items that were somewhat useful. This time, we found some even weirder travel items to add some ease to your next trip. 

Let us know in the comments if you use any of these gadgets.

1. Snapchat Spectacles, $129+


If you’re a millennial, parent, or anyone with a knack for social media, you’ve definitely heard of Snapchat. The disappearing-photo app recently released Spectacles in different cities across America through secretly located vending machines. The sunglasses lenses snap photos and video while they're worn—making them perfect for any vacation or trip.

The only downside is the price: directly they start at $129 and take 2-4 weeks to deliver. If you’re in a hurry, Amazon sells them through various sellers with a steeper price tag. 

2. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera, $59


Have you ever thought about packing an instant camera? The Fujifilm Instax camera is perfect for taking instant vintage-looking photos, without the need of a filter. Just make sure to pack some extra film.

3. Crumpled City Map,  $17


Don’t let the name fool you! This map is perfect for people who like to travel and use a tangible, printed map. It’s pretty easy to store—the map can be balled up, tied to a bike, or easily stowed away in its drawstring bag. Many reviewers on Amazon say it makes a great piece of art to hang on your wall after your trip. 

4. Comix Mini Dino Cell Phone Mount, $9


Aside from being cute, this dinosaur is pretty useful. On the plane, this dino can hold your phone for optimal viewing angles on your tray table. Besides that, it could also be a conversation starter with your neighbor.  

5. Trtl Neck Travel Pillow, $30-$33

The Trtl Neck pillow looks like a scarf, but it's so much more than that. This pillow is scientifically proven for long-haul flight neck support and is half the size of traditional U-shaped travel pillows. Did we mention it also easily attaches to your luggage? 

6. Philips Portable Speaker, $20



This compact speaker looks like a soda can,  but it gives out high-quality sound. If you’re staying at a hotel but unsure if the clock or speaker in the room is compatible with your device, portable speakers like this are a packable must-have.  

7. J-Pillow, $30



We mention this one over and over, but it's still one of our favorite and weirdest travel products to date. Shaped like a J, this pillow offers some of the best comfort while traveling, and easily clips onto your bag or luggage. If you need any more evidence of this pillow’s greatness check out its Amazon reviews—it’s a best seller.
