One the easiest ways to save money when you travel is to bring an empty water bottle through security so you can fill it up at a water fountain on the other side. It’s simple, and in the past I’ve recommended just using any old plastic bottle—which I later learned is a big no-no since the plastic has toxins. Last year I recommended the Hydrapak Stash Bottle, which I really liked, but now there’s another product out there that I like even better. It’s called the HYDAWAY travel water bottle.
The HYDAWAY is a unique portable, re-usable, collapsible, and infinitely adaptable water bottle. What I love about it is that when expanded it allows for 21 ounces of liquid. It also fits in most vehicle cup holders and backpack water bottle pockets. The best part—besides being BPA-free, taste-free, odor-free, and dishwasher-safe—is that HYDAWAY bottles can be folded down to just over an inch.
All bottles feature an easy-to-use, flip-up straw for quick sips, a carabiner-friendly carry handle, and a watertight guarantee. They come in a dozen colors including eight bold ones like bamboo, bluebird, tangerine, rose, storm blue, fire, snow, and midnight. Grab one for $19.95.
