Printers have come a long way over the years, and this is especially evident in travel printers.
I had one travel printer years ago that, to be blunt, sucked. Now they are full-on inkjet printers capable of doing color and multiple pages per minute.
If you’re wondering why you would need one, there are a plethora of reasons.
- Airlines have discontinued pre-printed tickets, opting for people to do e-tickets, and print their own boarding passes. Hotels don’t always have printers for you to do this, and if it’s a long trip, this would come in handy to print those off.
- On a long road trip? Wouldn’t it be nice to print out updated route maps as you go along?
- If you’re on a business trip, or a traveling salesman, I see these as essential as any other piece of equipment so that you can print off documents or reports for your meetings.
Some of the printers even come with a battery now so that you don’t even have to plug in to an outlet, really handy if you are just running completely behind in your work.
It’s up to each person if they need such a thing, but with our supposed “paperless society” never quite emerging, we at StarterTech do highly recommend buying one if you travel a lot.
