Two Must Have Travel Gadgets

Periodically the Fighting Travel Couple reviews helpful travel  gadgets and gizmos.  This installment features two items that make couple travel easier!  We are even going to give you one of our lucky 1000 Fighters one of them!  Sweet huh?


The Travalo

Problem:  Fancy perfume and cologne  is extremely expensive, comes in fancy glass vessels, and is heavy!  On top of that, try to get that much liquid on an airplane.  Not gonna happen.  So what to do?

Problem Solved:  The Travalo is one of the most unique  travel products we have come across.  It is a great solution for the chic traveler.  So heres how it works, take the Travalo, uncap your fave fragrance place the little Travalo over the straw of the fragrance and gently pump it full of the elixir.  Its just that easy.

The nice people at Travalo have given us one to give away to one of our loyal readers.  That could be you.  All we ask is that you leave a comment below with your fave fragrance and where would you love to take your Travalo (Milan, Tokyo, or Paris).  We will pick a random reader and send them one of these!  So, who are you wearing?  Our lucky winner will also be entered to win a $400 travel voucher from Travalo.  YES!

Problem:  You, like us and 99% of the traveling world bought a black piece of luggege.  Why do we do it?  We own three large black roller bags.  Occasionally we place bets on how many other colored bags show up on the baggage claim.  So black baggers, what do you do?   Tie string onto the bag and hope that it stays put?  Spray paint your bag pink?  NO!

Problem Solved: With a bag tag or bag strap from our friends at you will never again take the wrong bag.  we we love about IDmyBag is that they use really great materials and craftsmanship.  What good is a bag strap if it rips or tears?

The real value in these tags is preventing theft.  How likely is it that a thief is going to snatch a bag with a tag like this off the carousel?  Very unlikely.    The good folks at offers custom stitching and colors!  Cool!  Want to avoid couple fights?  Buy one, better yet buy two.

Disclaimer:  We are not paid for our reviews.  That wouldn’t be very fair?  We do receive sample products to review.   We will do our best to give you candid and honest reviews.  We always put reviewed products to the test in the field.

    Oh wow that Travalo looks a-maz-ing!!! My husband and I are leaving in 5 months for a one-year RTW and this would be the perfect addition for our backpacks!

    I would fill one with Euphoria by Calvin Klein, my husband would fill one with Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme.

    We would love to take a Travalo to Boracay, Hong Kong, Hanoi, Luang Prabang, Borneo, Bali, Sydney, the Cook Islands, Buenos Aires, Patagonia, Easter Island and the Galapagos Islands!!! :)

    Perfect! The Tavalo is really a great tool. Galapogos sounds amazing!

    I’d take the Travalo anywhere! My favorite is Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue and Chris fancies Jean Paul Gaultier (Le Male). Honestly, I would’ve LOVED to have it when we were in Ecuador. I didn’t think I’d need it but everyone there smells AMAZING!

    The travelo is a really good idea! I always hate feeling “un pretty” when I am travelling.

    At the moment I am using Ralph Lauren’s Lauren Style perfume. I would use the travelo on our trip to Tonga and Samoa, although im not sure when exactly we will go there.

    Thank you for sharing this one, I actually never heard about this travalo perfume. I am wondering where I can find that one.
