If you’re unsure what you should take with you, let us point you in the right direction when it comes to your 2019 travel gadgets.

1. E-Reader

It’s not just tourism that’s booming this year, but the sales in books at the airport have surged too. This was discovered after WH Smith reported a 16% sales increase in the firm’s travel arm, which can only be down to people realising they have nothing to read while waiting at the terminal.
