Travel Bags and Hand Luggage
Choosing the right travel bag and hand luggage can be a daunting task. You want it to look good, to be durable, to have sufficient capacity for your varied needs and to be easy to move around.
Travel bags can be bought by capacity, ranging from small 40l options to large 100l plus. Other features may include the bag being lightweight, durable and wheels for added mobility.
What you need to take on the plane with you, how often you travel and how busy the airport will be can all impact the materials you choose for your travel luggage. Aerolite bags, for example, are made with hard-wearing, rip-resistant polyester, which might be a good choice for frequent travellers.
If you will be carrying your luggage on your back you may want to consider padding for added comfort or, if you prefer a bag with wheels, you might choose a hard-plastic finish or hard-wearing canvas to protect your belongings in busy airports. For casual travel, a lightweight cotton shoulder bag is a popular choice.
Options such as the Cabin1 BP Casual Daypack allow you to take the maximum allowance on any flight due to a range of expandable pockets that change the size and capacity of the bag to meet your needs.
Bags for Children
Brands such as Trunki and Disney design travel luggage especially for children. Small cases that are easy to manoeuvre, decorated with favourite characters or bright colours and have a range of child-friendly accessories to make travel easier.
Keep children safe and comfortable with a travel style booster seat, like the Trunki BoostApak, that folds into easy and convenient hand luggage.
As well as allowing the child the freedom to pack their own things and feel grown up, some children's luggage has a ride-on option, with a pull along strap for adults, making them an easy choice for parents in busy airports.
