Prime Day 2022 is here! July 12th and 13th 2022 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 2022’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. The good deals will sell out early, so be sure to act fast if there’s something you really want.
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.
Best Prime Day deals on Electronics
Is this the hottest deal of Prime Day 2022 for travelers? We think it’s pretty awesome! The fully-loaded Amazon Fire HD10 tablet is 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+ 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 $70. Get on it before it’s gone!
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 the road trippers out there, be sure to bring your own portable jump start pack! Instead of messing with 20′ jumper cables and waiting for a good samaritan to help you out, you just attach the built-in cables (correctly) to your battery and ground, push the button and start your car. I just ordered one for myself! Don’t forget to add the extra $20 coupon.
Best Prime Day deals on Luggage
This spring I had to buy four new suitcases to help a relative move. Thankfully that gave me a chance to do some testing! My favorite by a lot was this one (pictured above). It feels very well-made and has lots of built-in organization including detachable packing cubes! Very easy to pull or push. The sophisticated colors are a refreshing change of pace for both adults and tweens/teens. I chose pink and navy (one to hand off to each kid, which I expect they’ll use throughout high school and maybe beyond). The cheapest options are light blue for 26″, navy for 22″ and navy for a set with both sizes.
There’s a huge range of luggage on sale this week.
–Kenneth Cole chevron carry-on + backpack set – very stylish and functional at the same time!
–American Tourister on sale, including lots of Disney and Star Wars
–Samsonite spinner 40% off
There’s always a Prime Day deal on Osprey backpacks and this year it’ll be for the awesome women’s Fairview travel backpack. The size XS/S in misty grey is a whopping 20% off.
We love our packing cubes! Prime Day always brings many packing cube deals. Here are a few to start you off:
–Gonex compression packing cubes – 20% off
–Nomatic packing cubes – 20% off

If you want something a little more fun, there are great discounts on Vera Bradley bags too! This pretty weekender is half off.
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.
Best Prime Day deals on Camera Gear
Unfortunately deals on high-end camera gear are thin this year, probably due to global supply chain and manufacturing challenges. But there are still some good buys for Prime Day camera gear and accessories.
Prime Day is always a great time to pick up new memory cards. I’m a big fan of Sandisk, and they’ve never failed me through the decades. Right now you can get 33% off their 256 GB Extreme SD card. For a little less, you can grab the 256 GB Extreme micro SD card to fit your smaller devices.
We love snorkeling and always want to capture the cool stuff we see under water. We have a budget-friendly action camera and that it comes with practically every accessory you need. The swankiest version (which is less than what we paid for our lower-end one) adds a touch screen and upgraded image quality.
If you have room in your budget for a real GoPro, check out this great GoPro HERO8 deal at $50 off.
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 $60 off – and then attaching them to a travel journal with crafter’s tape.
Prime Day Deals on Travel Accessories & Travel Toys
We love these binoculars so much that after losing ours last month, I decided to take advantage of the Prime Day sale to buy two more! They offer the perfect balance of magnification and portability, and today’s price is far less than what I originally paid.
Lifestraw water filters are on sale today at half price when you buy a 1-pack! They’re a great way to minimize environmental impact when you’re travel in an area with unclean drinking water.
Want to keep your kids occupied during flights and meals without packing the whole playroom? Snag this deal on Tegu pocket pouches! They’re normally extremely pricey, but right now you can get one for almost half off. Heck, get two at that price.
If you travel with a budding artist, consider grabbing one of these electronic doddle pads. It’s a mess-free way to allow unlimited drawing!
Kids who love puzzles will stay busy with these innovative magnetic tangram set. It includes almost 200 puzzles and the tiles can even be used vertically.
