Bose QuietComfort 45 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Bose makes some of the best noise-canceling headphones for frequent travelers in the world. Prices on one of their best Bluetooth headsets don't get much cheaper than this.
You can currently buy a pair of Bose QuietComfort 45 noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones for as low as $199. That's more than $100 off list price for one of Bose's top products with unbeatable noise cancelation, and one of the lowest prices we've ever seen.
Only the color White Smoke is currently available at $199 – other models are sold out or available at $229, which is still a decent price. No matter which color you choose, these are a step up from the QuietComfort 35 headphones, which had been the gold standard for travel headphones for many years.
Act fast if you want these headphones: They're sure to sell out soon!
Buy them on Amazon from $199 (was $329)
Bose 700 Noise Canceling Headphones
Want to splurge for Bose's flagship headphones? You're in luck there, too.
Bose 700 noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones are also on sale for just $299. That's not quite the cheapest price we've ever seen on these headphones, but it's $80 off the normal price for a 21% discount.
These newer headphones take Bose products to the next level. In our experience, they're just as comfortable but offer even better sound quality, noise cancelation, and have a much better built-in microphone to eliminate background noise on phone calls.
Both the black and silver luxe colors are available at this price.

Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)
It’s not just Bose headphones on sale today. You can also score a pair of Apple's brand new, second-generation AirPod Pros for just $199. That’s the best price we’ve seen for Apple’s newest and best Bluetooth wireless headphones that promise better noise cancelation and longer battery life.

Just like the Bose 700s are a step up, so are these AirPod Pros. Unlike the standard Apple AirPods (which are also on sale for just $89), the Pros are noise-canceling, they’re water-resistant, and come with custom ear tips. Our team swears by them: They’re well worth the additional money over the standard AirPods if you ask us.
4 Pack of Apple AirTags for $88
Concerned about your luggage getting lost? Apple AirTags are a must-have travel accessory, and they're on sale for Amazon Prime Day.
You can buy a four-pack of AirTags for $88.49 – down from the $100 list price. It's one of the better deals we've seen on this location-tracking technology.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
Amazon almost always has Prime Day deals on their own products. If you don't already own a Kindle but are in the market for an e-reader, this is a great opportunity to pick one up at a discount.
The Kindle Paperwhite has a larger, higher-resolution display with a built-in adjustable light. Even better is that this generation is now fully waterproof, with a bigger display and 2x the storage as older models. It's normally $139.99, so you can save $50 by picking this up today!
Even if you swear you need a physical copy to read, travelers should give this deal a long, hard look. I'm a Kindle Paperwhite convert, and this $89.99 price is one of the best deals we've seen.

TRTL Travel Pillow for $48
It may look goofy, but travelers swear by the TRTL travel pillow. And it's on sale for Amazon Prime Day: $47.99.
That's not the lowest price that we've seen on these go-to travel pillows, but it's a 25% discount from the usual $59.99 price tag. Several members of the Thrifty Traveler team use this pillow during long-haul flights and will never use another travel pillow again.

Huge Savings on Samsonite Luggage
You can always find deals on luggage for Amazon Prime Day, and Amazon's Prime Day for 2023 is no exception – especially for solid Samsonite gear.
It's tough to beat some of these Samsonite luggage sets from $150, as that's more than 50% off list price. Same goes for some carry-on bags starting around $120.

Rain-Mate Compact Travel Umbrella
Having an umbrella with you during your travels can save you a lot of headaches should the weather take a turn for the worse.
This Rain-Mate compact travel umbrella is a great addition to any carry-on bag for your next trip, and it's discounted by nearly 50% for Amazon Prime Day. Some colors are cheaper than others, but it's a great deal no matter which design you choose.
It comes in a multitude of colors and weighs less than one pound. It's also windproof with a reinforced canopy.

Yes, really. A portable carbon monoxide detector is the travel accessory you hope you'll never need, but should consider throwing in your bag for your next trip. Better safe than sorry, right?
This handy Kidde Carbon Monoxide Detector is just a few inches long and wide, making it easy to pack in your bag. It's battery powered, with a warning system so you'll know when it's time to replace those AA batteries. And best of all, you can buy it for just $15.34 – nearly 50% off the normal price.
Buy it on Amazon for $15.34 (was $27.99)
Don't wait on any of these deals as they are only good through the end of Wednesday, July 12 – but they could disappear even sooner as items sell out. Make sure to check the Amazon Prime Day deals page throughout the day as new offers are constantly being added.
We will be updating this page as more deals come and go.
