Whether you’re off to Fiji, Samoa, Rarotonga or venturing a little further out to Hawaii, we’ve got you covered!

We’ve picked our top 10 travel items for a successful Island Getaway:

Luggage:

When it comes to choosing luggage to take with you on your Island Getaway, weight and size are definitely two key features to look into.

1 . For a softside option, the Nomad Elite Air Softside Suitcase Range is a must-have! The medium checked 69cm size is ideal for a week long Island Getaway. Weighing in at only 2.6kg, this lightweight option ensures plenty of room for your swimsuits and summer clothes! The matching carry-on 55cm case is also a great addition to your luggage family!

2. Our second luggage option is hardside, and one of our absolute favourites here at luggage.co.nz! The Explorer Luna-Air Hardside Suitcase Range is a lightweight option with plenty of fun colours – at an incredible price point too! The medium checked 65cm size would be the perfect size for an Island Getaway, especially in our newest Seafoam colour!

Backpack:

3. When travelling on shorter trips, a casual backpack is definitely the way to go. Herschel’s range of backpacks are always a great choice – they’re lightweight, simple and we have them in some super cool designs! My favourite being the Herschel Heritage Mid-Volume Backpack in this fun tropical print! Inside you’ll find a 13″ MacBook sleeve and a handy exterior pocket which is perfect for stashing your passport and wallet in!

Wallet:

4. Obviously taking a wallet is a must, especially one with RFID blocking material and a specific passport slot. Two top picks for me would be the Pacsafe RFIDsafe TEC Passport Wallet or the Pacsafe Citysafe CX Wristlet Wallet.

They’re both RFID blocking, fit a passport and have designated card slots. With the Pacsafe Citysafe CX you’ll also find an interior zippered coin pocket. This option is ideal for those who want to transition between travel and everyday life, while keeping the same wallet.
