What to Look for in New Luggage

02/12/2017 04:48
Utility is key. What will you mostly use the luggage for? Long or short trips, airline or car travel? Will you be leaving for an extended amount of time or do you only need a weekend bag that holds a few items? Consider: Size — bigger pieces hold more, but grow heavier — and airlines have...

Take inventory of your luggage before you prepare for your next trip. Is the luggage adequate to your needs, does it meet new airline requirements, and will it suit the length of your next trip?

If not, you may want to supplement what you have with new pieces of luggage. If you haven't bought luggage before or it's been a while, you may be impressed by the style, variety, and improved functionality now available.

If you already own (or can borrow) luggage, you may not have to buy new. Here's help deciding when you're better off buying than using what you have:

Your luggage is too big, too small, or too heavy for your needs

  • Newer pieces have wheels, and yours doesn't
  • It's damaged and not worth the cost of repair
  • More than once, it's been mistaken for someone else's at the airport

On the other hand, if the luggage you have is only dirty or scuffed but otherwise suits your needs, wipe it down with a clean, moist cloth and keep using it: It's only going to get more soiled on subsequent travels.

When Only One Carry-on Bag is Allowed

When all an airline permits you to bring aboard is one carry-on bag, make it the most useful one you can buy. Since some airlines no longer permit passengers to bring both a purse and a carry-on bag or a computer bag and a piece of luggage, you may need to re-think both what you pack and what you carry it in.

Given that security lines are long and presenting an organized bag will hasten you through, consider choosing luggage that a) conforms to carry-on size guidelines, 2) has multiple compartments, and 3) has wheels. These are bags that I recommend when you are allowed to bring only one luggage item onboard.

Think thoroughly, pack smartly when you traveling by air. Check relevant airline guidelineswhile you are about to travel by air.  Consider wgere you will place your valuables inportant files, toiletries, clothes, etc. Generally, there are two kinds of international flights luggage, that is, carry-on luggage and checked luggage.

Smaller than checked luggage, carry-on luggage on international flights is always allowed to be taken along with you all the time while the checked luggage are only permitted to store in cargo section on the plane. Different airlines have different measurement and weight restrictions on carry-on international flight luggage whereas they seldom set rules on checked luggage.
