The Tuff Nano proves perfect for storing or backing up data on longer trips, and there are plans for a 1GB version in addition to the 512GB model currently available. $149.95 for 512GB.

European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
