Prime Day 2020 is finally here! October 13th and 14th 2020 you’ll find some of the best Amazon deals ever. Over the last few years we picked up some awesome Prime Day deals (including our sweet bike trailer at $400 off retail) and I’m expecting this year’s deals to be just as good.
So without further ado, here are 2020’s best Prime Day deals for travel gear (including Prime Day deals on cameras, because no trip is complete without the photographic evidence). We’ll be updating this page as new deals come up, so bookmark it and make sure to check back often.
Before you start shopping, make sure you’re a Prime member! You can grab a free trial of Amazon Prime here to get you through the sales.
This year, Target Deal Days and the Walmart Big Save Event are being scheduled for the same days. I’ll be sure to include those below too!
Best Prime Day deals on Electronics
Is this the hottest deal of Prime Day 2020 for travelers? We think it’s pretty awesome! The fully-loaded Amazon Fire HD10 tablet is almost half off during Prime Days. You can stream Prime video and music for free and even download them to take on your flight. We have a slew of Fire tablets for our family travels and we love them.
Our daughter loves her Fire Kids Edition, and this one is even better! the Fire HD 8 Kids comes loaded with an 8″ HD screen, 32GB of storage (expandable via mirco SD card), a kid-proof case, a 1 year subscription to Amazon Kids+ (formerly Amazon Freetime Unlimited) and a 2 year no-questions-asked warranty. The regular price is $140 but for Prime Day the Fire Kids Edition is marked down to just $80. Get on it before it’s gone!
For those with more money in the budget, there are also some wonderful deals on iPads – especially the latest iPad mini. It can be hard to find legitimate discounts on current Apple products, so we’ll take what we can get! Even the brand new 10.2″ iPad is on sale.
If you need awesome headphones for your next flight this deal on beats is great – 33% off retail! My favorite feature is the amazing 22 hours of battery life, which you can extend to 40 by turning off some advanced features. That’s enough to get you through even the worst travel day. For a more compact option, you can get almost 20% off these beats ear buds.
Make sure to pick up this universal power adapter with built-in USB charging ports. It’ll save you so much hassle because it consolidates allllll the different plugs around the world and allows you to leave the USB adapters at home.

For travelers on a tighter budget, the Amazon Basics hard-sided spinner luggage is really hard to beat. Right now you can get up to 40% off. This carry-on is extremely popular and comes highly recommended by my friends.
Best Prime Day deals on Travel Accessories
In the era of increasing baggage fees, you have to know how much your bag weighs before you get to the airport. This little gizmo takes the guess works out – without having to lug your over-packed suitcase to the nearest scale and precariously balance it on your feet.
The best inexpensive gift for the traveler in your life (or for yourself, we won’t tell) is a new bag tag. These are beautifully designed and capture the excitement we all feel on the cusp of the next trip.

If you want something you can slip in your pocket, toss in a lake and then drop down the side of a ravine don’t miss this deal on the Olympus TG-6 Tough.

The upgraded version is also on sale for Prime Day and might be a great choice if you plan on heavy use.
The swankiest version adds a touch screen and upgraded image quality. Yes, it’ll be on sale this Prime Day too.
If you have room in your budget for a real GoPro, check out this great GoPro HERO8 bundle – it includes the GoPro, floating handle and sleeve with lanyard.
One of our favorite projects during our gap year was our son’s travel journal. You can easily make your own by printing photos as you go with this tiny printer – now $15 off – and then attaching them to a travel journal with crafter’s tape.
