Whether this is your first trip away or you’re a seasoned globetrotter, it’s always helpful to have something to refer to when it comes to packing your suitcase. Here, we’ll be taking a closer look at the best kind of luggage for your next international trip.
Step 1: Choosing your main luggage
Wherever you’re planning on travelling to, make sure o puck luggage that is both versatile and lightweight. The most important decision you will have to make is buying a bag that comes with all-important warranty. Travelling with a suitcase that has a broken wheel is not fun and a bag with a busted zipper is the worst! Brands that offer warranty for their gear is great as it promises durability.
Let’s face it – we can all agree that wheels are nice. There is no need to worry about having to carry a heavy backpack with this option. Rolling luggage is a great choice if you are travelling to a city where there will be paved roads and paths.
As you fill up a wheeled suitcase, you can find that weight quickly becomes restrictive – particularly if you have to walk long distances. Opting for wheeled luggage that has 4 wheels can help to keep the weight off your wrist and you will find that your bag can effortlessly roll along by your side.
These bags are simple and lightweight and are typically extremely durable. You can easily sling it across your shoulders or add some wheels to it and head off on your next trip.
If you’re planning on visiting multiple countries that have different types of terrain, or switching airports for cobblestones, then a bag that can be either carried or rolled is extremely helpful.
If you know you don’t like wheeling a case or don’t want to worry about the added weight of any wheels, then a wheel-free travel backpack offers ultimate versatility. There’s a reason why backpacks are the chosen luggage option for seasoned travellers!
Whenever possible, make sure to travel with just carry-on luggage. This will help to save time at the airport and also means you can save money. It also ensures your bag won’t get lost…the list really does go on and on.
