Guide for buying luggage from suitcase set.
Here’s a simple fact: A good piece of luggage makes traveling easier. This is because you can organize your suitcase the way you want and everything is neat and in order. An organized suitcase helps you feel like your life is in order, even if you are far away from home. Having the perfect set of luggage for you and your needs helps trips go smoother and be less stressful, so you can focus on why you are traveling instead of worrying about your things. There are lots of different luggage choices out there, so finding the one that works for you and your travel needs is extra important.
There are several different kinds of travelers and each come with their own specific needs when it comes to luggage:
Weekend travelers are the first type. If you are only going on short trips that last 2 or 3 days, you probably do not want a large, cumbersome suitcase. A small, very mobile piece of luggage is probably your best bet. Being able to pack quickly is a bonus. Also, you will be able to check out some of the local sites wherever you travel without having to check into your hotel first if you have a small, easily carried piece of luggage. Backpacks and duffel bags are, in my opinion, your best choice. Also, if you are flying to your destination, stick with carry-on luggage so you don’t have to wait for your bags when you land at your destination.
Another type of traveler is the business traveler. If you are one of these travelers, you know that business traveling is all about efficiency and organization. You do not want to spend a lot of time in the airport when you land, so carrying big bags that need to be checked would be rather inconvenient. Also, you want to be able to find exactly what you are looking for in your luggage so that you can be completely prepared and look your best for your meetings or conventions. My recommendation would be to stick with a great piece of carry-on luggage and a laptop case for your business travels.
The family traveler is another type of common traveler. When you are traveling together, it is rather important to have everything that everyone is going to need packed and secure. This is a lot of stuff and is generally not going to fit in a small bag or two. The best solution for family travelers is to purchase a large luggage set. This way, you can fit in everything that you need to take with you, but will allow you to leave some room to bring back souvenirs. I would recommending a matched set rather than individually purchased pieces so that you will not accidently forget one of the bags in the confusion after you land.
Finally, there is the international traveler. Picking luggage for this kind of travel can sometimes be a little tricky. You need to find that delicate balance between ease of carrying and the ability to hold all of the things you are going to need for an extended trip. If you are planning on staying with friends or family during your travel, a large suitcase is rather convenient, as it will hold all of the things that you will need. However, if you are planning on wandering around, or staying in hotels, I recommend purchasing a travel backpack. These allow you to store lots of clothing and belongings but are not cumbersome. You can take them with you from the plane to a bus or train when moving around.
Suitcases come in all shapes and sizes these days. There is a ton of choice out there. Before you spend money on any piece of luggage though, think about your specific needs. If you are only making small trips, why buy a huge piece of luggage? If you are planning on spending a month overseas, a small duffel bag will not hold everything that you could possibly want or need during your trip. Planning ahead will make any trip you take much easier and relatively stress free. Oh, one added tip. If you are like me, and like to buy lots of souvenirs on your travels, I recommend carrying along an extra, empty duffle bag that you can easily stuff into your other luggage so that you will have plenty of room to carry back all of the things you purchase. Enjoy your travels!
