10 essential gadgets to pack for budget travel

Budget carriers tend to expect their guests to bring their own form of entertainment (or pay for ridiculously overpriced tablet rentals). Pfft, that's fine. Because you have Apple’s latest tablet. Load it with offline games and banish boredom while others look on with envy at how fast the A8X processor renders Infinity Blade III with amazing details.

Pro tip: forget the 16GB option and go with the 64GB sweet spot or 128GB if you have a little extra cash. The price difference is not very much and you will appreciate having the extra space sooner rather than later when you can squeeze more than a couple of TV sitcoms and movies (which are available from iTunes and not TPB, mind you!), hours of music and e-books into this nifty little device. Trust us, you'll be so engrossed in that gorgeously massive 9.7in Retina Display screen that your flight will pass much faster than you thought it would.
