It’s that time of year again and my list of the 20 Best Travel Gadgets for 2020. This year, as travellers, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to connected, smart, well-designed devices and items of luggage.

Superfast 5G networks make the most of our connected devices. Smartwatches are beginning to replace the smartphone and the race for the ultimate foldable device is on! Our luggage can send a text message if it gets lost and headphones can recommend a place to eat when visiting a new city.

  1. I was actually eyeing the Skyroam however, I’m shocked to discover that there are a lot of other things worth buying thanks to your article.

  2. Can you use the K Ring for international destinations? I am American with a US credit card but living in Japan. Is it all cool? And has there been any problems with the ring? I know I have to be careful with my debit or credit card and not let them near my phone or I will not have a card anymore.

    • I agree, just remember to download the content you need before leaving home, something I forgot to do this past weekend!
