Checking your baggage allowance
When planning your summer travels and booking the cheapest tickets possible, something that can escape memory is the additional charges we tend to accumulate.
One of the most common charges is for baggage allowances — and as some airlines now charge your fee depending on cargo and your personal weight, a digital scale may be a good investment.
The "No More Excess" digital scale weighs in both kg and lb, and has a lightweight design to fit into your luggage. To use, you lift your suitcase — which can be up to 40kg — and simply set it down. The scales now only cost £7.99.
An action camera
For those of us who enjoy extreme sports, being able to record your experiences is a must. One option is to buy a camera which you can strap on as a headband, but if you prefer handheld options, Sony's Action Cam is worth considering.
The Action Cam comes with casing that protects the gadget from water, sand and grime, and records in HD at up to 120 frames per second. Built-in Wi-Fi lets you share your footage on the go, and it comes with a hands-free option.
The camcorder comes with a price tag of £259 ($397)
Apple's MacBook Air
As a lightweight, powerful laptop, Apple's MacBook Air has remained a solid player for those on the move, whether on holiday or a business trip.
An aluminium body protects the laptop — which is available as 11 inch or 13 inch models — from damage, and can be tailored to include a dual-core processor up to 2Ghz, 8GB memory, and an Intel Graphics 4000 card. At the highest specifications, the battery can last up to 7 hours without Wi-Fi.
