Apple Airtags

 

Readers have been raving about Apple Airtags for travel for a long time, and many took advantage of the Amazon Prime Day Sale to snag some of these handy little trackers! Apple Airtags work with the Find My iPhone app to track your valuables and are amazing for keeping track of or finding lost luggage in an airport, though they can also be used for anything from your keys, wallet, or even your parked car! 

For non-iPhone users, readers recommend the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag and the TilePro, which are compatible with Android devices, and the TilePro also works for iOS.
