Haven’t you heard? Packing light is the new rage amongst smart travelers who know that you don’t have to carry your home with you to enjoy the ultimate vacation. The following technology and apps are about to become your new best friends on your way to your next trendy destination.


Huawei P20 Pro Cell Phone

If you’re interested in the Huawei P20 Pro, there’s a good chance it’s because of the camera. This new smartphone has the ultimate camera, combining a panoply of hardware and software features. There are three cameras on the rear of the Huawei P20 Pro: two are combined into a raised unit, comprising 40-megapixel colour and 20-megapixel monochrome cameras. These operate much in the same way as previous dual camera Huawei systems, as developed with Leica collaboration. Basically, it means that you don’t have to over-pack your carry-on anymore and simply leave home with this smartphone that will allow you to snap the best Instagram-worthy photos like a real pro.

The new Huawei P Series is available to purchase in Canada through Rogers, Bell, TELUS, Videotron, Fido, and Koodo.


AsYouStay App

Most hotels have standard check-in and check-out times. These hours can be frustrating to work around if you just arrived in a new city and feel like crashing as soon as you can in your hotel room. AsYouStay is a free app that works with hotels, so you can book for hours at a time. For now, they already have partnered up with more than 50 hotels across major cities in the USA, such as New York, Miami, and San Francisco.

For iOS and Android.



Turo App


This lifesaver app lets you rent cars directly from their owner. Available to users in the U.S. and Canada, Turo allows you to search for exactly the type of vehicle you want—often at prices lower than what the big rental agencies charge. The company also recently expanded into Europe, allowing you to book the car of your dream at cheap cost on your next stay in the UK or Germany.

For iOS and Android.



Smartphone Charging Clutch

This chic, sleek, black clutch comes with a slim, recharging battery already tucked inside. It allows you to fully charge your smartphone without having to carry a charger that will stop you from dancing all night to celebrate the start of your vacation. It also features storage compartments for credit cards, coins, a slot to hide cables, and an LED indicator that shows how much power is left in the purse.

Available at uncommongoods.com for $80.
