Our Top Tech For Travel – What We Never Travel Without

Before we started this family travel blog, we have always taken tech for travel especially away with us on a family holiday. Even now we still have a number of must haves that we take away with us. As kids the most we ever took away with us was a CD player or games console…oh how times have changed!

Our Top Tech For Travel

Toshiba Netbook


We all have tablets…yes even the boys. Saves them both fighting over them. On the boys tablets they both have games, educational apps, and videos (Amazon Prime is a life saver!). I use my tablet mostly for emails, internet and checking the blog. We try not to take away any laptops, however if we do then we take my trusty Toshiba Netbook.

mobile phone


I’m the only one who takes a phone with us on holiday. Luckily with Vodafone I get my UK price plan in most European countries for £3 a day. Which is useful for during the day when I might have work emails coming through. No such thing as a holiday without work when you run your own businesses.

I love my Olympus Camera. I don’t go anywhere without it. I tend to take a small tripod with us too which fits in our day bag, for any photo opportunities. It is also great as I can send pictures straight to my phone which I can then upload to social media channels if needed.

Go Pro Hero 4

Go Pro

New for this year, we have bought ourselves a Go Pro. So watch out for some of our adventures. I just need to get better at editing videos.

Wifi Dongle

Huawei Dongle

Our trusty Wifi! We found it so useful on previous trips, that we now have a monthly contract. This is great for when we have work to do in the evenings. No need to buy slow Wifi from the hotel or campsite.

Lastly, not so much tech but we don’t go anywhere without our Gro Clock. If we do go away and forget it, then our boys just wake up in the night and think it is morning. So Mr Sun as we call him, works wonders for our family…even when on holiday.

  1. Thanks for the great article. I was wondering what Olympus Camera do you use? I’m looking for one and love that you can send pics to your phone. That seems like a huge time saver!

    1. Hi April, My Olympus is called the Olympus Stylus Traveller SH-2. I don’t know if it is still available to buy. I find the transferring of pictures to my phone so handy. Means I can take pictures and then choose which ones I want to transfer before uploading to social media.

  2. I’ve just been looking at the Huawei dongle but couldn’t decide whether to get it! Think I will now, we struggled to get good wifi on our last trip. 🙂

    1. Ours is great, so glad we got it. Saves slow hotel wifi or trying to get onto the campsite Wifi. We use a Three data sim, which is good for some European countries. You could get a local data sim while on holiday.
