Each of the products in our HI Travel Tales Amazon Influencer shop is there because we think a travel item is so cool, so good, so useful, or so great looking and wearing that we use it ourselves. Why should you trust the recommendation? We have more than six decades of testing and evaluating experience between us and test everything we recommend to the point of breaking. We rely on expert experience, research and established testing protocol and, we love the brands we recommend. We believe the prices are some of the best you will find, though of course, if you find it cheaper, by all means buy there. Your purchase, any purchase, via a link on our website or through our Amazon Influencer page will provide us with a small commission at no extra cost to you, which helps us keep the lights on … and is greatly appreciated.
