There are more than 1 million deals rolling out on Amazon Prime Day. Here are the best travel products we found in the annual sale.
It’s back! Amazon Prime Day, the annual Black Friday–like event in July, starts at 3 p.m. EST on Monday, July 16 and lasts for 36 hours with discounts on everything from noise-canceling headphones to camping gear. Ever since the annual sale for Amazon Prime members started in 2015, it has grown from discounts on 100,000 items to over 1 million deals. To save you from digging through the less than stellar sales, here are 16 of our favorite deals on travel products you’ll want for your next trip.
While the most of the specific discounts won’t be revealed until each sale is rolled out at five-minute intervals over the next two days, you can get a sneak peek of what will be marked down each day and keep tabs on each sale by watching them on the Amazon app or by installing the Amazon assistant to get desktop notifications.
Prices subject to go up—and hopefully down—as sales begin and end throughout the next 36 hours.
