Top travel tips for you and your kit

If you’re travelling overseas to one of these incredible events, there are a few easy tips you can follow to make your trip as stress-free as possible.

Protect your gaming kit

If you’re taking your gaming gadgets and accessories away with you, you need to make sure that they can withstand every environment they could come into contact with. Our range of Peli and Dave protective gaming cases provide world-class protection, making sure that your gadgets aren’t damaged by water, dust or impacts.

Get insured

Travel insurance is advised for any international trip you make, but did you know that most travel insurance policies don’t cover your gadgets? Make sure to check the small print on your policy documents to see what is covered, and ask your insurer if you can buy an add-on policy for your gadgets.

Contact your airline

If you’re travelling overseas with lots of kit, it’s worth contacting your airline to check their luggage regulations. Although electronics are allowed in hand luggage, you need to make sure that this does not exceed size regulations. If you’re putting your consoles in the hold, make sure they’re marked as being fragile, or put in a specialist hard case to make sure they stay safe.

Take spares

The last thing you want is to be caught out in a foreign country, missing a vital piece of your kit. Make sure to check and double check that you’ve packed everything that you need, and take spares of any vital pieces of kit. Our PS4 cases and Xbox One cases are big enough to fit your console and controllers, along with all the cables and accessories you could need.

These tips will help to make your trip stress-free, and ensure that you and your gadgets arrive safely!
