Specialty: Just about everything.[Rating: 4/5]
You can rarely beat Amazon for selection or price on most things you’ll need for travel. From clothing and travel gear, to electronics and books, Amazon always comes through. We estimate that we buy almost 60% of what we need for travel from Amazon.
Upside: Prime Shipping. For $79 a year you get free second day shipping on every item or one-day shipping for $4. There have been many a trip when we’ve needed something at the last minute and it’s paid for itself time and time again. Has a high number of user reviews for most products.
Downside: Need to watch for items sold by 3rd parties via Amazon. Sometimes it takes longer to receive them and shipping rates can be unusually high.
