Travel accessories help to make every journey more comfortable and seamless. Here are the best Black Friday deals we’ve seen on some of our favorite travel accessories from headphones to storage containers and more.
We love everything about Paravel — from its chic travel products to its sustainable mission. For Black Friday, you can get up to 30% off sitewide. This duffel bag is the perfect weekender bag, made of a durable exterior fabric — and it can even be personalized.
These customizable, leakproof and magnetic Capsules are the perfect travel companion for staying organized. And for Black Friday, you can get the Build Your 6 set for less than $70 — a price we rarely see.
If you need a bundle of AirTags to give to the whole family (or keep for yourself) for upcoming travels, the AirTag four-pack is among the lowest prices yet, nearly getting you a fourth AirTag for free.
Keep everything organized while traveling with this multi-purpose folio kit from Monos. It has space to store a passport, mini tablet, credit cards, cords and much more. Through Nov. 24, you can get up to 40% off sitewide by using the promo code EARLYBF2022.
The AirPods Pro 2 are our favorite Apple earbuds thanks to their stellar noise cancellation and controls, and they’re currently at their lowest-ever price.
Packing cubes are a staple for frequent travelers, and this four-piece set from Monos is a solid deal. You’ll get a set of quality cubes with a mesh top for easy viewing that are sure to last for many trips to come. Use promo code EARLYBF2022 for the discount.
Keeping your passport safe is important when traveling internationally — and even better if you can do so in style. We love this passport case from Paravel, which is a steal at just over $50.
This travel backpack is perfect for all kinds of journeys — from business trips to family vacations, backpack adventures and much more. The bag can fit up to a 15.6-inch laptop and has plenty of pockets and organizational compartments for everything from electronics to clothes, toiletries and more.
Every traveler needs a good piece of luggage for storing all of their belongings. These are the best Black Friday deals we’ve seen on some of our favorite luggage options out there from carry-on bags to checked luggage.
In our testing, we loved the Paravel Aviator Carry-On — in fact, it only lost out on the top spot to the Away Carry-On because it doesn’t carry a lifetime warranty and it doesn’t have smart features. However, it’s incredibly smart-looking and we love that — like all Paravel products — it’s made with sustainability at the top of mind.
The Away Carry-On is our pick for the best carry-on bag out there. It’s got plenty of thoughtful organization spaces for any kind of traveler, smart features, a durable hard-shell exterior — oh, and it looks incredibly sleek. This Black Friday, Away is offering $50 off purchases of two suitcases and $100 off purchases of three suitcases. If you grab The Carry-On and a Medium checked bag, it’ll bring your net cost for a Carry-On down to $225.
State Bags makes one of our favorite kids’ luggage sets. Available in 12 colors and designs, this bag is equivalent in size to most adult carry-on luggage. For Black Friday, snag this suitcase to make your little one an expert traveler for 25% off by using the promo code BF2022. Also, get free initial embroidery using the same code.
We loved the Calpak Ambeur Medium Luggage in our testing for its comfortable handles and smooth roll. Take advantage of 20% off Calpak items — including the Ambeur checked bag — this Black Friday.
