On a recent perusal through the TravelSmith website, one of their products caught my eye. It’s called TravelStix, and it is basically a credit-card shaped USB flash drive designed to hold all of your travel documents. I think it’s a very clever idea! Keep one in your wallet, and you’ve got everything you need–itinerary, emergency contacts, medical info….. However, the $30 price tag seems steep. You can get the same size flash drive (4gb) from Staples for half the price, and download forms for all of your travel info from a variety of places, including Microsoft Office. Or make up your own. You could even keep this information on your phone or in the cloud. I think the fact that it is designed to fit inside a credit card slot in your wallet is pretty cool, but other than that it seems expensive.
Readers, what do you think? Is the TravelStix worth it?
