Best Travel Safety Products: Top Picks

1. Portable Hotel Safety Lock Portable hotel safety locks locks aren't your everyday key-and-turn systems; they're an inside job giving you an added layer of protection against potential intruders so that you can sleep easily at night.

From sleek metal shields and handy door jams to buzz-worthy noise alarms, there's a style for every preference. Check out our 10 hotel safety tips for solo travelers.

2. Personal Alarm From the moment many of us step into adolescence, a silent threat detection checklist embeds itself in our minds: don't walk alone at night.

A personal safety alarm is the perfect compact device that's both a deterrent and a call for help.

This self-defense siren boasts a staggering 130dB volume and when paired with its flashing light, it's designed not just to deter but to disorient potential aggressors while catching the attention of nearby witnesses.

3. Travel Wallet Keep your ID, credit cards, and cash safe and organized with a travel wallet. Equipped with cutting-edge RFID-blocking capabilities, these sleek wallets for both men and women shield your cards from electronic signals, ensuring your identity remains safe whether you're traveling, shopping, or adventuring.

4. Portable Alarm Door Stop A portable alarm door stop is an incredible lightweight safety tool that can prevent intruders from entering your room.

The door stop alarm comes with an activation switch and when set to "on," any pressure on the door will trigger an alarm. If it's set to "off", the device doubles as a standard rubber door wedge.

5. AirTag

A popular use for AirTags has recently come to light: monitoring your checked-in luggage during trips. Airlines often misplace luggage and then provide misleading information about their whereabouts but you can now track your luggage by attaching an AirTag to it!

For instance, an airline worker in Florida was apprehended with stolen luggage worth over $15,000, all thanks to an AirTag.

Another tale recounts how a couple on their honeymoon used an AirTag to locate their missing luggage.

6. Travel Money Belt

Having your pocket picked during travel will leave a bad taste in your mouth. The best way to avoid pickpockets is to always employ a money belt to protect your personal items.

7. Portable Power Bank Have you ever found yourself navigating an unfamiliar street and then notice that your phone battery is almost out?

Traveling often means long hours away from power outlets - and unfortunately a dead battery can leave you isolated and potentially at risk.

A power bank will keep your iPad, your phone and multiple devices powered for days.

8. Water Purification System Clean drinking water isn't a guarantee everywhere, even if you're hiking within Canada. For Canadians hiking or exploring remote areas, a portable water purification system like a transportable bottle can be a lifesaver.

9. TSA-Approved Locks

When jetting off, most of us get that nagging feeling about our luggage's safety once it vanishes behind the airport's curtains. But for your luggage security, TSA-approved locks are the superheroes you didn't know you needed.

Not only do they stand guard over your precious cargo, but they also have this neat trick – they let the TSA (and only the them) open and inspect your luggage without having to break open your suitcase.

10. First Aid Kit

First aid kits might not be the first item you think of packing, but think of them as the unsung heroes of your luggage.

In an ideal world, you'd never need a first aid kit, but you'll be patting yourself on the back for having it when you get an unexpected cut or a nasty bite.

When charting unknown territories, having the right travel safety products ensures you're not only enjoying your voyage but doing so with peace of mind.

As you plan your next excursion, keep these products at the forefront of your packing list. What travel product have I missed from the list? Let me know in the comments below!
