Amazon Prime Day, Amazon’s annual Black Friday–like event, took place last year between July 15 and 16, 2019. Amazon has yet to announce the dates for Prime Day 2020, but the sale could be postponed "until at least August" due to coronavirus, Reuters reports. Since the annual sale—held exclusively for Amazon Prime members—started in 2015, it has grown from a one-day event with discounts on 100,000 items to a two-day event with over 1 million deals. 

Before you can shop the event later this summer, you’ll need to sign up for an Amazon Prime free 30-day trial account if you’re not already a member. (After the 30-day trial, Amazon Prime costs $119 per year or $12.99 per month.) In addition to qualifying for Prime Day deals, your membership also gets you free two-day shipping year-round, plus ongoing access to Prime Video and unlimited photo storage.

While you wait for the 2020 dates to be announced, here are some of last year's best Amazon Prime Day travel deals on everything from noise-canceling headphones to luggage and travel-size toiletries.
