10 Products To Take The Pain Out Of Travel

Summer is almost upon us and that can only mean one thing - holiday time!

With endless airport queues and shrinking plane seats, it's safe to say travelling is all about the destination and not the journey.

Luckily, there are a few great items that can make your next holiday start from the moment you step out the front door.

Amazon's travel section has launched, so we've put together our picks for making the whole experience a little more enjoyable.

No one wants to be fighting for the last power socket at the departure lounge. Rely on your own power source with this ultra-high capacity power bank, which can charge an iPhone 7 almost seven times.

Amazon Kindle

Price: From $179

You can't always rely on the in-flight entertainment. Make the trip go faster and travel lighter with a Kindle Paperwhite E-reader. It holds thousands of books, reads like real paper and includes a gentle backlight - perfect for when the cabin lights have been dimmed.
