How To Choose The Right Luggage For Your Next Trip

by Jessica Wray

If you need new luggage for a trip, do a little bit of research to determine the right size luggage for you. There is no universal airline standard for which bags can be carried on and which must be checked. if you have a favorite airline, use their carry-on and checked baggage policies as a guideline. This one step will go a long way in helping you make an informed decision about which luggage to choose.

Also make sure to take into consideration what you will be bringing with you on your trip. Will you need a lot of space or just a little bit? If you're a visual person, set out everything that you will pack so you can see it all in one place. This will give you a much clearer idea of what you will need.

When looking for a good suitcase, don't forget to take note of its weight. You can save money by keeping under the airline's weight limit and avoiding extra baggage fees. By using lightweight suitcases, you can pack more into them and still avoid the weight limit. Luggage manufacturers produce many different lightweight suitcases. You can usually find weights listed on product pages online.

Now that you know the size and weight you need, what type of material do you want your suitcase made from? Soft luggage is most often made from nylon. Its advantage is that you can usually squeeze it a bit to make it fit into tight spaces. Hardside luggage, molded from Polycarbonate, protects fragile items from the roughness of baggage handling. But if the overhead compartment is a bit smaller than the hard case, you won't be able to shove it in there.

The last thing to remember is to choose a good quality suitcase over a cheap one. A good suitcase will last you for many years. Choose a well-known brand over an obscure one, and note the length and coverage of the manufacturer's warranty. Be careful when looking at designer luggage -- it doesn't necessarily mean it's good quality. It is often made for the label and not made to last. The best way to learn about good luggage brands is to check online luggage reviews or talk to friends who travel frequently.
