Of course, if you then grab a cup of coffee, the juggling act begins all over again, which is where the tugo ($8.95) drink holder comes in handy. Made of flexible molded plastic, the unit features a cup-sized ring and two keyhole-style straps that can be secured to the handles of most rollaboard bags.

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.

Enter the TuGo Cup Holder, an ingenious little invention that holds your drink snugly between the upright handles on your rolling luggage and effectively gives you a much-needed extra hand.
Why We Like It: Makes good use of a convenient—and otherwise unused—area of your luggage."
