Looking for a stylish travel purse? One that’s practical, strong and handy when you’re jet setting? I’ve rounded up the best options out there right now, with my shopping guide to finding the best travel purse. 

If you love travelling, you’ll also know how stressful airports can be. There’s a lot of life admin involved. One moment you’re showing your passport and collecting your boarding passes, the next you’re struggling to find where you put them, while having palpitations that you’ve accidentally left them at security.

When I’m packing I like to organise everything into a travel purse. I pop in my passport, some currency, credit cards, a pen and a few other essentials like a printout of my insurance details and the address of where I’ll be staying.

But why? Well, after one too many frantic moments where I thought I’d lost my passport between security and boarding the plane, I decided to invest in a good travel purse. It’s changed the way I travel, making me way more relaxed. My mum (a very anxious traveller) also has one and swears by it.

So, I wanted to put together a quick Amazon shopping guide for anyone looking to buy a travel purse. There are SO many to choose from, and plenty of different styles, colours and unique selling points.

So, from designer travel purses, to passport wallets that can charge your phone at the same time, and bargain travel organisers for savvy jet setters, here’s my guide to the best travel purses and wallets around right now.

Zoppen Mulit-Purpose Travel Purse

One of the most stylish around right now, this travel purse comes in every colour you could dream of. I adore this rose gold wallet though, and it’s right on trend. It’s got lots of pockets to slide all your important items into, from passports to boarding passes, credit cards, coins and more. It’s also slim and lightweight and there’s even room for your smartphone. It’s also made from RFID blocking material, which prevents data theft via credit cards. 

Happy Jackson ‘Travel Stuff’ Travel Purse

I love this brand! Their products are fun, cheeky and colourful. This travel purse comes in a bright red, and is nice and roomy. Inside are three tabbed sections for ‘Lovely Money’, ‘Tickets & Stuff’ and ‘Passport Etc.’ I love the message on the front too –  ‘Travel Stuff. Note To Self: Foreign Money is Not Pretend Money’!!  It closes with a magnet. They also make this fun ‘Travel Plans’ Travel Wallet if you’re looking for other options by the brand.

Women’s Zip Up Travel Wallet

One of the best travel purses if you have multiple documents to keep organised, and want to choose a colour to match your taste. This one comes in black, brown, blue, grey and red.

It’s on the larger side, fits a passport and some phones, and comes in a smart box.

Marc Jacobs Travel Wallet

One of the best designer travel wallets around, this Marc Jacobs purse comes in a bright shade of pink and is made from pebbled leather. It’s large, and could easily double as a clutch bag when you’re away, so a great multi-purpose wallet for your travels.

Along with  a wraparound zip, it has 4 pockets, 6 card slots, and a main compartment. It oozes quality, with the signature Marc Jacobs logo on the front.

Tuscall Fun Printed Travel Purse

Travelling is fun, so why not buy a travel purse with a vibrant print on it to start your trip in style? I love this one with flamingos on the outside, but there are other prints to choose from too.

I think this one would make a great gift. The wallet is lightweight and waterproof and has several slots to store your passport, boarding pass, credit cards, coins, pens and more.

Busy B Travel Purse

Another super cute travel purse, this one by Busy B comes in three girly versions (pink, aqua and grey) with travel-themed messages on the front. It comes in a smart gift box, so if you’re looking for a travel purse for someone’s birthday or Christmas present, this is one of the best options on the list.

It doesn’t zip up all the way around as some do, so it may be a little less secure for carrying coins. However, it ticks the cute box, and has plenty of slots for passports, tickets and cards.

BAGZY Multi-Purpose Cross Body Travel Purse

Here’s a unique twist! This cross body travel purse by BAGZY sits comfortably over your shoulder, and has lots of functions and ways you can wear it. While it works as a cross body travel purse, you can also attach it to your arm, your waistband or wrist. This makes it perfect not just for travel, but also for active sports like running and cycling.

I also love how it has a built in earphones slot, so you can feed your earphones through the bag to your phone. It has multiple pockets to keep your travel documents, tickets and cards organised too. With its cross body style, this is one of the best anti theft travel purses around.

Unisex Genuine Leather Travel Wallet

This genuine leather travel wallet is smart, and works well for both men and women. It’s minimalist, lightweight and has lots of compartments – more than most on the market right now.

Along with passport, tickets and card slots, I love how this one has tiny pockets that can be used to store camera SD cards and SIM cards. Very practical and smart. It comes in black and brown leather.

Sagebrown Cobalt Travel Case

How chic is this travel purse? If you’re shopping for something high end and want one of the most stylish travel purses around, I’d recommend this minimalistic one by Sagebrown.

It has a few zips to store your vital documents, plus a slot at the back, perfect for storing items you’ll need easy access to, like boarding passes. It’s handmade from a fine calf leather and has a stylish criss cross saffiano texture.

It’s another travel purse which comes in multiple colour options, so you can match it to the person you’re buying for.

Crossbody Travel Bag

Something a bit different from the traditional style of travel wallets, this stylish crossbody travel bag is chic and practical. With a skinny strap, inside are 2 pockets where you can store your money, credit cards, phone, passport and tickets.

I like this one as it’d also be a useful bag for carrying your essentials around when you’re away. It comes in a few cute colours. Cross body bags like these are safer from theft, as you can keep it close at all times.   

Osprey Travel Wallet

Osprey make great backpacks and travel bags, so it’s no wonder they’ve come up with the perfect travel wallet too.

In terms of functionality and layout, I’d say it’s one of the best travel wallets on the market. It has multiple slots for cards, passports, tickets and more. Plus it’s easy to secure with a zip going all the way round the outside. It’s also got a hidden currency sleeve.

Golunski Lockable Leather Travel Purse

Another good travel purse for women – this one by Golunski comes in a stylish blue and red, with a striped interior. It’s got a zipped compartment plus 4 credit card slots and a compartment at the back.

It’s made from super soft leather and has a special lock and key mechanism on the front. I also spotted they have several different colour options online, so if the red/blue combo isn’t doing it for you, check the link to see what else they have.

Phone Charging Travel Purse

Another truly unique travel purse, I love the idea of this one, and think it could be really handy when travelling. It has its very own built in power bank to charge your phone on the go, complete with charging cables.

As well as that added bonus, it’s stylish, comes in multiple colour options, and has pockets and compartments for all your travel documents.

Portico Designs Out Of Office Travel Wallet

Another fun travel purse I’ve discovered! I adore the stylish jungle print on this travel wallet. It’s roomy, with space for a passport, boarding passes, credit cards, currency and more.

It fastens with a popper. I also spotted this cute card holder made by the same brand.

Fjällräven Kånken Travel Purse

Popular Swedish brand, Fjällräven have added to their trendy range of Kånken backpacks and brought out this practical travel bag.

It’s spacious, with a large compartment for notes or tickets and a zipped pocket for coins. It fits passports, has an easy access slot for boarding passes and even a special fleeced-lined pocket for your phone. I also love that it comes in pretty much every colour of the rainbow!

Ted Baker Men’s Travel Organiser

Another great men’s travel wallet, this one by Ted Baker is smart and surprisingly affordable.

It features multiple slots for different sized documents, includes a pen and has a sturdy zip fastening. It’d make a great gift for any travel loving guys out there.

Large Multi-Functional Travel Case

A different style entirely, this travel case is really practical if you travel with a laptop.

The ziparound case has several pockets inside where you can store your laptop, tablet, travel documents, passport, phone, pens and more. It’s really well organised, and once you open it up you can see everything.

It also comes in a range of fun prints, and has handles so you can carry it like a small handbag. There’s an extra zip pocket on one side too, so you can store any quick-access items there.

I hope you’ve found the perfect travel purse for your next adventures! Let me know your faves and if you need more gift inspiration, check out these unique gifts for travel lovers.
