Our Favorite Gear

Don't Leave Home Without These Items

Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet

Our favorite is the 10" sized unit, but the 8" is worth considering if compactness is essential. Stunning value, and great for videos, music and books while traveling.

Briggs & Riley Suitcase

If you've ever had a suitcase break on a journey, you know how vital reliable luggage is and what a false economy cheap bags can be..
Luggage doesn't get any better than Briggs & Riley.

8-port USB Charger

For office, home, and traveling, this gets all your devices charged simultaneously and quickly.

Free Weekly Emailed Newsletter

Usually weekly, since 2001, we publish a roundup of travel and travel related technology developments, and often a feature article too.

You’ll stay up to date with the latest and greatest (and cautioned about the worst) developments.  You’ll get information to help you choose and become a better informed traveler and consumer, how to best use new technologies, and at times, will learn of things that might entertain, amuse, annoy or even outrage you.

We’re very politically incorrect and love to point out the unrebutted hypocrisies and unfairnesses out there.

This is all entirely free (but you’re welcome to voluntarily contribute!), and should you wish to, easy to cancel.

We’re not about to spam you any which way and as you can see, we don’t ask for any information except your email address and how often you want to receive our newsletters.

Newsletter Signup - Welcome!

Thanks for choosing to receive our newsletters.  We hope you’ll enjoy them and become a long-term reader, and maybe on occasion, add comments and thoughts of your own to the newsletters and articles we publish.

We’ll send you a confirmation email some time in the next few days to confirm your email address, and when you reply to that, you’ll then be on the list.

All the very best for now, and welcome to the growing “Travel Insider family”.
