Make Sure You Have The Right Luggage For The Summer Travel Season

Summer travel season is just around the corner so now is the time to take inventory of your luggage before you prepare for your next trip. Is your luggage adequate for your needs and does it meet the latest airline requirements?

If not, you may want to start looking at purchasing new luggage to supplement your existing pieces or to replace them altogether.  The styles, variety and functionality available in luggage today are astounding!

When to replace your luggage

If you aren’t sure whether it’s time to replace that bright orange vinyl suitcase, here are some tips to help you decide if it’s time to buy some new stuff.

  • Is your existing luggage too big, too small or too heavy for your needs?
  • Do you have to carry your luggage (i.e. no wheels)?
  • Is your luggage torn or ripped?
  • Do you have difficulty identifying your luggage against the thousands of other pieces at the airport carousel?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, it might be time to haul out your wallet and head off to the nearest luggage or department store.

What to look for

When looking for new luggage, utility is key.  Think about what you will use your luggage for. For example, weekend trips, two week vacations, car or air travel.  Also, think about:

  • Weight when empty – if you struggle with the piece when it’s empty – it will be even more difficult when it’s full.
  • Fabrication – durable nylon is light, but less stylish than other fabrics.
  • Size – bigger pieces will hold more, but with size comes increased weight.  Remember that airlines have weight limits.
  • Features – look for smooth rolling wheels, zippered pockets, sturdy handles, dividers etc.

If you aren’t sure of your needs or your needs change often, consider investing in a matched set of four to seven pieces in different sizes so that you have something to that will suit every type of travel you may be doing. Have fun exploring all the fun and functional options available in luggage. Think of your purchase as an investment because you will likely use it for many years to come.  Enjoy all your summer travels with your new luggage!
