Prime Day 2021 is here! June 20th and 21st 2021 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 2021’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 2021 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+ 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 (that’s $10 less than last year). 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.
Best Prime Day deals on Luggage
If you’re shopping for the best travel backpack for women be sure to check out our reviews to help you decide.
One of my favorite backpack lines is running a site-wide sale, which is a rare treat! As a petite woman, I love my Tortuga Setout – you can read the full review here. Right now you can score up to 30% off the entire Tortuga Setout line, which now comes in two capacities each for men and women. We also love our Setout Packable Daypack, which has more structure than cheapy packable options we’ve tried.
Look out for a nice discount on the Hynes Eagle 40L travel backpack. It’s a popular budget-friendly option for travelers committed to carrying on their luggage.
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 rainforest green is a whopping 45% 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
–pack all compression packing cubes (half price!!!)
–Hynes Eagle 3 piece compression set
If you want something a little more fun, there are great discounts on Vera Bradley bags too! This gorgeous weekender is more than 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 20% 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 bundle – it includes the GoPro, short handy and more.
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 $20 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 about half of what I originally paid.
Lifestraw water filters are on sale today at half price when you buy a 2-pack! They’re a great way to minimize environmental impact when you’re travel in an area with unclean drinking water.
If you’re traveling with a young kid, don’t miss this amazing deal on the gb Pockit! It folds small enough to fit in the overhead bin or a backpack, so you’ll never be without your trusty steed.
Is your kiddo beyond “stroller age” but still can’t hang for the whole day? The innovative Liki Trike by Doona folds up small enough to take in the overhead bin and offers the option for everything from parent push to more independent riding. It’ll take you through the airport, to city streets, to the playground and back again. This is a Lightning Deal starting around noon eastern, so better be quick!
If you’re worried about you (or your young companions) getting a good night’s sleep on the road, bring these portable blackout curtains with you. Lots of families in our Facebook group swear by them! I just wish I’d had them when our kids were younger.
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 just $12. 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.
