"It's the little things—like, say, that steaming hot cup of coffee—that really make a trip to the airport bearable. That is, unless you're spilling said boiling liquid all over yourself while trying to juggle your bags, your wallet, and your boarding pass at the same time.

On my recent trip, I tested the Tugo drinks holder. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s an ingenious little device that gives you an extra hand when you’re traveling with your laptop, hand luggage, purse or briefcase. If you’ve ever wondered what to do with your coffee while carrying 2 or 3 of these items, then the Tugo is the solution.
In testing, I found it useful not only when on the move in an airport, but also when I was unable to score a seat with a table. I was able to keep my drink right in front of me, instead of having to hold a hot coffee cup while waiting for it to be ready to drink. I’ve got mine stored with my carry-on so it will be ready for my next trip.
