How to choose carry on luggage?
When choosing the best carry on luggage to take on your next trip, there are many factors to consider. Do you want a hardside suitcase or a softside suitcase, wheels or a carry-bag or combination of both, and how big do you want your carry-on bag to be? You’ll also need to decide on what features you require such as compartments, zippered pockets, external pockets, built-in locks, and other anti-theft features. Whether you prefer a backpack, a duffle bag, a cabin bag, or a suitcase, you’ll also need to decide on the style of bag you want to buy. The carry-on luggage you choose will depend on where you are going, what you’ll be doing, and how much you need to take, as well as your tastes and preferences. Our carry on luggage comes in a range of colours from black or grey to more stand out colours such as turquoise, ivory gold, peacock blue, or chilli red.
Wheels don’t travel well on cobbled roads and dirt tracks, so if you are planning an adventurous holiday where you’ll need to take your luggage off the beaten track you might be better off with a backpack that comes with comfortable, adjustable shoulder straps and a waist strap so that it is easier to carry over long distances. Or if you’ll need to fit your bag in small spaces, travel backpacks, or duffle bags can be easier than a large carry on suitcase to stow in overhead bins, lockers, or luggage racks on planes, trains, or buses. If you travel a lot for work, you can get carry-on luggage that has a padded laptop compartment or a laptop bag, and if you are going to be doing a lot of wheeling through airports you might want to consider a 4 wheel or even an 8 wheel carry-on bag so that it is easier to manoeuvre around. For those who do a lot of flying, it’s a good idea to choose a lightweight bag so that the weight of the bag doesn’t eat into your overall weight allowance, not to mention that a lighter bag will be easier to carry.
If you’re travelling with kids, we also sell some super-cute kid’s carry-on luggage. Trunki, who specialise in luggage for little people, have a range of ride-on suitcases that come with two webbed grip handles, four smooth-rolling wheels, and lockable easy-opening clips. From Flora the Fairy or Una the Unicorn to Pedro The Pirate Ship or Percy the Police Car, your kids will love travelling through the airport on these colourful creations. Samsonite also has some fun carry on kid’s suitcases that come with a spacious and fully-lined main compartment, a sleeve pocket, and elastic cross-ribbons. Whether you choose the butterfly, chick, or turtle design, with their two smooth-rolling wheels and telescopic handles, your child can enjoy carrying their bag independently.
What is the best carry on luggage size?
If you are planning on taking your carry-on luggage with you on the plane, the weight and size allowances will vary between airlines, so it’s best to check with your particular carrier before flying so that you don’t arrive at the airport and discover that you can’t actually take your bag as carry-on luggage with you on the plane but that you’ll need to check it in. As a general rule, bags that are 55cm and below are generally used as carry-on luggage but there is no set standard carry on size as airlines are free to set their restrictions.
What can you pack in a carry on luggage?
These days, there are many rules and restrictions around what you can and can’t take in your carry on luggage, and it will vary between countries and airlines. Depending on where you are traveling and what airline you are travelling on, you’ll need to check the specific rules so you can avoid getting something confiscated in the security line! As a general rule, you should avoid large quantities of liquids and gels, as well as sharp objects and anything that can be used as a weapon. Some people opt to take carry-on luggage only. If you can pack lightly, this can be a great option and it will save you having to lug a heavy suitcase around. You’ll also save time waiting for your bag in the baggage claim area when you arrive at your destination. Some airlines charge extra for check-in luggage so you may save money too, and there’s no risk of your airline losing your luggage!
