Travel Essentials: Electronics

We’ve rounded up the most common electronics you’ll need to enjoy your vacation – and capture every moment of it.

Foreign Adapter

Be sure you have the proper type of adapter for the country you are visiting.

Cell Phone

Your cell phone will not work outside the US unless international service has been activated through your provider. Keep in mind that international fees can be quite costly. If you need to make a call, consider downloading Skype on one of your devices and use it to make calls when a Wi-Fi connection is available. We are pleased to offer complimentary Wi-Fi service on-board our touring motor coaches.

Phone Charger

Your phone won’t do you much good if the battery is dead. Always make sure you have your phone charger, as well as the appropriate adapter for your destination.

Digital Camera

Many cell phones today have high quality cameras. If you decide to bring another camera along on your vacation, be sure you’ll be comfortable carrying it around with you all day. Pack a carrying case and be sure to keep it on you at all times while sightseeing.

Memory Card

Make sure your camera has a SIM card to store photos – otherwise you memorable vacation photos will not be saved!

Camera Charger

This is one of the most important things to bring yet one of the easiest to forget. Even if your camera is new, its battery may not last more than a few days.

Kindle or Tablet

Many people enjoy reading books on a Kindle while traveling. And tablets such as the iPad are great alternatives to laptop computers, allowing you to do everything from browsing the internet (when a Wi-Fi connection is available) to reading a book and even calling family back home from Skype.   If you decide to bring one on your vacation, make sure it’s protected by a carrying case.

Kindle or Tablet Charger

The last thing you want is for your Kindle to die halfway through a great page-turner. Remember to pack your charger and you’ll be able to enjoy a good read at your hotel, on your motor coach, or river cruise ship – whenever the mood strikes.


If you decide to bring a laptop on your vacation, make you’re you’ll be comfortable carrying it around during your trip. To avoid damage to your computer, avoid packing it in your suitcase during long flights. Make sure it’s protected and keep airline carry-on restrictions in mind.

Laptop Charger

Again, don’t forget your charger!
