Picture the scene. You’ve spent the day admiring Barcelona’s magical architecture and are about to grab a San Miguel to watch the sunset. Sounds like heaven? But when you ask for la carta your wallet is nowhere to be seen. Damn it! A pickpocket must have nabbed your cash whilst you were busy gawping at the Sagrada Familia…
Do you want to be a naive traveller? No, thought not. None of the above would have happened with the simple addition of a security belt. One of the savviest travel accessories you can own, a security belt, or money belt, makes you feel like James Bond… as well as making it virtually impossible for people with slippery fingers to steal from you.
The above Go Travel Money Minder, for example, is ultra discreet and designed to hide underneath your clothing so no one knows you’re wearing it, apart from you. A zipped pocket offers further security and two compartments are handy for stashing money, tickets and even a passport.
This nifty travel accessory totally eradicates the need to persistently guard your pockets or handbag when travelling, allowing you to enjoy and relax on your next mission… or holiday. Whatever, your secret’s safe with us…
Locks and Straps
So, your cash and passports are safely secured underneath your clothing, but what about your luggage? Suitcases can be like unruly children when travelling. Take your eye off them for one second and you could have a missing case on your hands.
Unlike naughty children, you can tie your suitcases up. A cable lock is brilliant for this. Ideal for when you’re travelling with several suitcases, a cable lock secures all your luggage together so there’s no chance of one of them getting lost in the airport crowd. Alternatively, the cable can be tied to any permanent fixture, preventing it from going walkabout the minute you turn your head.
We love this Combination Cable Lock by Go Travel. Firstly its bright purple – who said travel accessories had to be boring? Secondly, it features a combination lock, which is easy to set using a code of your choosing, meaning you don’t have to faff about with a set of keys that could easily be lost. And finally, the steel cable is ultra tough and can be easily wrapped around tricky shaped items. Cool!
Don’t be the traveller that keeps his ticket crumpled up inside his back pocket. Don’t be the traveller that freaks out she’s lost her passport every five minutes only to find it at the bottom of her bag. Instead, be that enviable traveller who is blissfully organised and effortlessly stylish thanks to the simple addition of a luxurious travel wallet.
This exquisite design by Jekyll & Hide is sure to make your jet-setting mates turn green with jealousy. Beautifully handcrafted from the finest leather, the Woodstock Travel Wallet is designed to age elegantly. Even after years of globetrotting, the leather will mature like a fine wine and ooze that desirable distressed vibe.
Internally, the wallet is decked out with 22 card slots, a pen loop, and space for all your travel accessories, such as cash, tickets and a passport. Sporting a slim design, the Woodstock can easily slip inside your handbag or luggage pocket for safekeeping. Too good-looking for just travel purposes, use the chic wallet on your daily commute or for weekend activities. This smart fellow deserves to be seen.
Uh oh. You’re unpacking on the first day of your holiday and a shampoo explosion has ruined your brand new shirt. This could have been avoided by the simple investment of a wash bag. Perfect for keeping all your toiletries organised and contained in case of leakages and said explosion, wash bags should be a staple piece of every serious traveller’s arsenal.
We have some pretty sweet designs available for you to choose from, in particular, the above Express Toiletry Kit from Briggs & Riley’s BRX range. Boasting a sporty aesthetic and unique cylindrical design, the bag catches your eye with its bold, two-tone styling and subtle, electric orange accent. Wear, moisture, dirt and abrasion resistant, the kit’s 420D nylon, 600D polyester and water-resistant tarpaulin fabrication is designed for durability and longevity.
The Express unzips to reveal two compartments handy for keeping your toiletries separated. Wet items and liquids, such as face cloths, shampoo and cologne are safe inside the gusseted u-zip wet pocket, which features a water-resistant lining to minimize leaks, whilst the second gusseted u-zip pocket is perfect for dry items.
Designed for swift and efficient use, this iconic wash bag can be whipped out of your luggage and hung instantly thanks to its webbing Velcro® strap. If you want your belongings to arrive in pristine condition, the sharp-looking Express Toilet Kit will keep your lotions and potions safely and stylishly stored away.

Who wants to unpack their entire suitcase for one night just to find that floral dress? Not us!
Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, no one wants to rock up to their destination with shoe dirt all over their clothes. On the other end of the spectrum, an oil spillage on those new leather brogues equals nightmare travel scenario. What’s the solution? Shoe Bags. Not only do these travel accessories protect your clothing from dirty footwear, but they also keep your shoes safe, shiny and scratch-free.
