After you’ve booked your trip, shopping around for all the travel stuff you need can be fun. Or… it can be a headache. It’s not that much fun hunting for the travel essentials like luggage locks and neck pillows, amiright?
Armchair shoppers will be happy to know you can hunt for many of your travel accessories online and have it delivered right to your door. No legwork, lots more options in one place, and a range from cheap-to-branded to ensure you only get what fits in your travel budget. Plus, if you don’t like your travel gear to look exactly like everyone else’s when it comes rolling out on the baggage belt, you can also score some unique finds online that are uncommon in Singapore stores.
We’ve teamed up with online store Lazada, where the month-long Online Revolution Campaign means some fleshy discounts this month including the travel range of luggages, accessories and packing organizers. Use our Expedia code ‘OREXP16’ at checkout for an extra $10 off — see details at the end of the post.
So what’s really available on Lazada that can help you with your pre-trip shopping for travel accessories? We’ve scoured through and found some good stuff to get you started.

Carrying a luggage scale with you is something I couldn’t recommend more.

These newer digital versions are compact, light and easy to use.
