Products of the Month –
EPIC Reflex (Special Edition)
Flint- a revolutionary Lint Roller
This month we are featuring TWO NEW products to our store to make your traveling experience even more stress free!
Though many of us would love to bring our pets on trips with us, we don’t always want to bring their hair along with us too. New to the store this month is a new lint roller that comes with refills to make sure you look sharp at all times. Perfect size for traveling, this stylish roller comes in assorted colors, as well as a sophisticated metallic case! Just whip it out and roll away the lint!
Last month we featured some of EPIC’s new 4.0 GTO suitcases and this month we would like to share the same love for this awesome Swedish company and present to you their new REFLEX line, a special edition suitcase with an elegant and unique look. ----In store we carry the three standard sizes of 22”, 26”, and 30” in two different eye-catching colors, sparkly white and sparkly champagne. Both are fun and flashy, just what you need to keep track of your bag or claim it when you land. They are sooped up with all the same features as before, such as four wheels for easy cruising, a hard-protective shell casing, and a built-in TSA approved lock to assure your goods stay your goods.

Travel Tip of the Month
REAL ID ACT
Starting January 22, of 2018, flying within the United States may just get a little more complicated. A new Act has been put into place requiring travelers to bring along with them more than just the standard driver’s license. Not all states will be RealID compliant, so this is a heads up. To figure out what states are and are not compliant, a complete list can be found on dhs.gov/real-id.
Here is a partial list of acceptable forms of ID that can be used other than your driver’s license; a passport, a border ID card, a trusted traveler’s card, a RealID compliant driver’s license, or a permanent resident card. A complete list of options one may use as a substitute for their standard driver’s license can be found by visiting tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification.
