Do I want soft or hard sided luggage?
Suitcases mainly come in two types; soft sided and hard sided. Choose luggage that suits your trip and the way you like to travel.
Suitcases have a number of features that can make your travelling and packing experience easier and less stressful. Here's some of the key ones to look out for.
- The more wheels a suitcase has, the easier it is to manoeuvre.
- With two wheels, you have to tilt your suitcase to pull it along, but with four or eight wheels, a case is much easier to move as it can be pushed as well.
- Four and eight wheel cases have greater balance and are easier to get across bumpy terrain or curbs.
- Some suitcases feature 360° spinner wheels, for ultimate manoeuvrability.
Cabin and hold luggage
Travel light and take your case with you in the cabin, or choose a larger case for storing in the hold.
It's in the bag
Travelling with children can be stressful, but you can take away some of the hassle by choosing luggage that they'll love. Luggage designed specifically for children can help your little ones beat the boredom of travelling.
