Travel Noire Quarterly Subscription Box Review #TNQ01
Travel Noire is one of the latest curators to join Quarterly, and this is their first box.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Travel Noire Quarterly Box
The Cost: $75 a box (ships quarterly) plus shipping
The Products: “Travel Noire mailings will help you travel farther, faster, and smarter than you ever thought imaginable.”
Ships to US and Worldwide
Each Quarterly box includes a letter from the curator describing the items included and why they were selected. The theme for this first box is “No Excuses Necessary” – everything you need to ban excuses that keep you from traveling more.
Fluxmob Bolt Battery Backup & Wall Charger – Value $59.99 (On sale for $49.99)
This Bolt Battery charger is awesome – I am keeping it in my purse at all times! It works as both a wall charger, and then is also a backup battery whenever you need it.
Glitch Fare Guide – Value ?
I’m not sure if it’s fair to put a value on this item since all the info can be found with doing some googling, but it is nice to have it all in one little guide.
Anywhere Travel Guide – Value $12.95
Point It Traveller’s Language Kit – Value $9.95
Both of these items were included as a way to encourage you to drop the fears of traveling by yourself:
The Anywhere Travel Guide is a deck of cards meant to give you different ways to take in a city or destination.
And the Point It book is a pocket book to use to get past language barriers:
Yes to Cucumbers Facial Wipes – 10 pack Value $3
Yes to Coconut Lip Balm – Value $3
I love this brand, and these are both items I can always use!
XCOM Global Free Wifi for 3 Days – Value $75
Etihad Airways 15% Coupon Code
This XCOM Global offer is a unique coupon code for 3 days of unlimited international wifi, and the Etihad coupon is good for 15% off a flight, now through June 30th 2015, for travel until March 6th 2016.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $79 – or $154 if you count the free 3 days of international wifi. I think the value in this box is definitely for international travellers. I’m not sure if that will always be the case with every box, but for now that’s my recommendation if you’re considering subscribing.
What do you think of the first Travel Noire Quarterly Box?
