Wednesday is the second and final day of the fall version of Amazon Prime Day, which means we've had even more time to find you the best deals for your travels.

It can be tough to sort through the tens of thousands of products on sale across all categories, so we’ve done that work for you. We've compiled a list of 25 of our favorite discounted Amazon Prime Day travel-related items.

From portable power banks and affordable snow boots to backpacks, headphones, AirTag holders (to track those checked bags) and more, we’ve got you covered. You can quickly scan for what you need to “add to cart” for your next trip.

Also, check to see if you're eligible to save even more by using Amex points toward your cart. Just remember, the fall Amazon Prime Early Access sale only runs until Wednesday night, so don’t miss out on the chance to save if you see something you need.

Best headphone deals

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones — $269 (normally $379)

AMAZON

With more than 28,000 (mostly very positive) reviews on Amazon, it’s fair to say that these are some popular headphones.

Featuring impressive noise cancellation and high-fidelity audio with an adjustable equalizer, these Bose 700 headphones provide a world-class listening experience.

The headphones have a 20-hour battery life and a 30-foot Bluetooth range, so you can keep your hands free while enjoying one of the best-in-class microphones for calls. Normally priced around $379, pick up a pair during this sale for just $269.

Bose SoundSport Wireless Earbuds — $89 (normally $129)

These popular wireless headphones have garnered more than 37,000 (mostly positive) reviews on Amazon.

They feature impressive noise cancellation and high-fidelity audio. They’re also sweat- and weather-resistant, making them a popular choice for running, workouts and other outdoor activities.

The structure of the earbud tips helps keep the headphones in place. Other features include easy connectivity to Bluetooth and near-field communication with voice commands and up to a six-hour battery life per full charge.

Sony LinkBuds Noise Canceling Earbud Headphones — $128 (normally $199.99)

AMAZON

These Alexa-enabled earbud headphones provide up to six hours of battery life (20 hours with a charging case). They have some handy tech features such as automatically pausing music when you speak to someone and seamlessly switching between noise canceling and ambient sound. The discounted price is $128 (about 36% off the retail price).

Apple AirPods (2nd Generation) — $89.99 (normally $159)

AMAZON

This is not the newest version of AirPods. However, if you want to spend less than $100 on AirPods since they are pretty easy to lose, this may be your best bet. These come with a charging case and advertise 24 hours of battery life.

Best luggage deals

Samsonite Winfield 2 Hardside Luggage with Spinner Wheels, Carry-On 20-Inch — $135.99 (normally $152.99)

If you want spinner wheels, Transportation Security Administration locks, full-zip interior dividers and a relatively lightweight bag without the higher price tag of some of the big-name competitors, this Samsonite bag is a worthy discounted option.

This bag’s dimensions are 20 by 13 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches; it weighs in at 6 1/2 pounds with a 10-year limited warranty. For reference, this is about 1 pound lighter than Away’s Larger Carry-On, which has similar dimensions.

Samsonite Winfield 2 Hardside Luggage with Spinner Wheels — $129.94 (normally $178.25)

Snag this sleek white hard-side luggage from Samsonite at a discounted price. The 11 1/2-pound bag measures 31 by 20 by 12 3/4 inches. The case features spinner wheels and side-mounted TSA locks; it expands 1 1/2 inches if you find yourself packing more than you intended. Not to mention, it comes with a 10-year limited warranty.

Matein Travel Laptop Backpack — $23.99 (normally $45.99)

AMAZON

This backpack has more than 72,000 mostly positive reviews on Amazon, and it's built for holding and organizing your tech on the go. It has a pouch for up to a 15.6-inch laptop, as well as pockets and holders for your other belongings. It has a luggage strap to slide over your luggage's handle and a built-in USB charger so you can walk and charge.

Ruvalino Diaper Bag Backpack — $31.99 (normally $89.99)

AMAZON

This backpack is described as a diaper bag backpack (which it is), but that doesn't mean only parents can use it.

It's cute and functional whether you need to use the changing pad, insulated bottle pockets and waterproof design for your baby's needs or you want to use it for your own non-baby-related purposes.

Best travel tech and accessories

Belkin Portable Power Bank Charger — $25.44 (normally $29.99)

AMAZON

There’s no such thing as too much power when you’re on a trip. Everything from a day at Disney World to keeping yourself entertained on the plane can drain your phone’s battery in no time.

This Belkin charger boosts the ability to charge multiple devices at once, and it provides 36 hours of additional battery life for your phone via a USB-C port and two USB-A ports.

FuelRods, pack of 2 — $26.24 (normally $40)

AMAZON

Travel can be draining — on your phone's battery. For full days on the go at places like theme parks, you need some backup power. A more powerful charging bank is a good plan, but some people have trouble remembering to keep those charged. Instead, FuelRods are an on-the-go solution you can exchange in places like Disney World (for free).

The price in the parks is $30 per rod, but via the Prime Day sale, you can get a pack of two for just more than $26, making this a must-buy for parkgoers who are always running low on battery power.

Sony SRS-XB43 Extra Bass Wireless Bluetooth Powerful Portable Speaker — $148 (normally $279.99)

AMAZON

Whether going to the beach or camping, a portable speaker can be more useful than you might think. This one uses Bluetooth, has a waterproof design and advertises 24 hours of battery life. You can also use it to juice up your phone via a USB connection.

OtterBox Sleek Tracker Case for Apple AirTag — $10.30 (normally $14.95)

AMAZON

If you’re going to use AirTags to track your bags, keys or whatever, you likely need something to put them in. One sturdy — and affordable — option comes from OtterBox and makes it easy to attach your AirTag to almost anything.

Belkin AirTag Case — $16.99 (normally $19.99)

AMAZON

Another AirTag case option (in various colors) comes from Belkin. This is also a great choice if you need an affordable way to put those AirTags to use.

OtterBox for iPhone 13 Pro — $39 (normally $59.95) and for iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro — $27.98 (normally $69.95)

AMAZON

Gravity happens and, eventually, you’re going to drop your super-expensive iPhone … probably more than once. While you should be sure you’re paying for that phone bill with a credit card that will cover some of the cost if it breaks, it’s better to just not break it in the first place.

If you want a pretty tough case for your phone to help protect it when drops happen, an OtterBox is a great option.

Best for active trips

CamelBak Men’s Palisade Hike Hydration Pack — $153.04 (normally $175)

AMAZON

Featuring the largest capacity of CamelBak’s hydration packs, the Palisade pack is perfect for long hikes and even overnight camping trips. Its 32-liter capacity carries three liters of water, and its well-designed exterior pockets — including two convenient hip belt pockets — allow easy access to sundries; they can even store bulky gear, such as tents and poles.

CamelBak’s pioneering bladder systems are easy to fill, don’t leak and provide steady flow rates. There’s an integrated rain cover to protect your gear and a ventilated back panel to keep you cool on the trail.

Columbia Women’s Newton Ridge Plus Waterproof Amped Hiking Shoe — $60-$75 (normally $89.95)

AMAZON

Lightweight, durable and waterproof, Columbia’s Newton Ridge mountaineering-style hiking boot provides stability and comfort in even the most challenging conditions. With a classic leather upper design, cushioned midsole, grippy rubber sole and reinforced toe box, it performs well on snow, ice, gravel and rocks, as well as serious inclines and edges.

Keen Targhee Vent Hiking Boot — $103.04 (normally $155)

AMAZON

An American, family-owned company, Keen has earned a loyal following for its innovative design ethos and eco-friendly practices. The Targhee — an all-terrain, midrise boot that combines comfort and stability — is one of its best-selling hiking boots. The boots are ideal for low-intensity, warm-weather hikes that don’t require a lot of technical edging or scrambling.

The leather upper is water resistant, the rubber outsole provides high traction and mesh panels allow for breathability. Lightweight, with a roomy fit and reliable odor control, the Targhee is an affordable, quality boot that you can wear day after day.

New Balance Men’s 510 V5 Trail Running Shoe — $38.99 (normally $74.99)

If you’ve been hoping to add a sturdy trail running shoe to your sneaker lineup, now’s your chance. New Balance’s 510 V5 shoe provides ankle support and stability on steep inclines and when trails are wet, slippy or covered in snow and ice. The breathable, synthetic mesh upper has a cushioned tongue and the durable, rubber outsole provides traction when scrambling on uneven terrain. It’s available in an array of colors and designs.

Champion Powerblend Hoodie — $25.64 (normally $55)

AMAZON

Whether it’s for Sunday lounging on the sofa or a jog around the park, fall is not complete without a cozy hoodie. This classic-fit Champion sweatshirt ticks all the boxes — it’s comfortable without being sloppy, warm but lightweight, and it has a roomy two-ply hood and hand-warming pouch pocket.

Made from cotton and recycled polyester, the hoodie comes in over 15 colors, nicely finished with a discreet “C” logo.

Columbia Boys Steens Mountain II Fleece Jacket — $29.99 (normally $45)

AMAZON

For an outer layer in spring and fall (or a winter base layer), this super soft Columbia fleece is a versatile wardrobe staple for outdoorsy kids. It’s warm without being bulky and zips up to a soft collar that keeps out the elements without irritating sensitive necks.

Made from polyester and Columbia’s trademark thermal retention fleece lining, it also features zippered pockets to keep items secure — a must for kids on the go. It comes in a variety of bold and muted colors and a range of sizes, from toddlers to teens.

Columbia Travel Cargo Pant — $45 (normally $60)

cargo pants
AMAZON

These classic cargo pants are smart-casual, highly versatile travel pants that have the comfort and maneuverability to take you from the plane to the trail. Six secure pockets (two are zippered) can store a phone, wallet, passports and keys, and they provide easy access to essential hiking gadgets and tools.

The breathable wicking fabric provides plenty of ventilation when the mercury rises, as well as UPF 50 sun protection. Made from nylon, it’s available in a slim (standard) design as well as a roomier (big) fit. It comes in waist sizes 28 to 48, and four inseam lengths, and there are eight neutral colors to choose from.

Garmin Fenix 6, Premium Multisport GPS Watch — $429.99 (normally $599.99)

AMAZON

The Garmin Fenix 6 series has everything you could want in a GPS multisport smartwatch — and a hefty price tag to match.

Designed for extreme, challenging outdoor conditions, it has all the standard smartwatch features you’d expect, including heart rate/pulse oximeter monitor and performance tracking features, as well as a three-axis compass, altimeter, gyroscope and, for avid adventurers, a global navigation satellite system.

The large watch face works in direct sunlight and battery performance runs for as long as 14 days, in smartwatch mode.

Best for family travel

2-in-1 Portable Sound Machine + Nightlight — $19.59 (normally $29.99)

AMAZON

If you want some white noise on the go to help your kiddo snooze in their car seat, stroller or hotel crib, this is a super affordable way to make that happen.

It also has a night light function with three different settings, so you can get the right amount of light you need for those middle-of-the-night feedings or even just to tiptoe past their SlumberPod without turning on the lights.

Safety 1st Step Lite Compact Stroller — $64.99 (normally $99.99)

AMAZON

This isn’t the fanciest stroller on the block, but it is one of the more affordable ones — especially during Prime Day. Also, if you’re looking for an affordable secondary stroller for your trips (where it won’t be the end of the world if something happens to it), this 15-pound option may be a great choice.

Green Toys Seaplane — $10.82 (normally $19.99)

AMAZON

You’re right, this toy isn’t really for travel, but it’s a great toy for kids who love planes and want a toy perfect for the bath or pool. This seaplane is made from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs and is free from BPA and phthalates.

For what it’s worth, it also comes in some cute packaging, in case you’re looking to give it as a gift.
