Do you have a big trip on the horizon? If so, you’ll want to browse our range of checked luggage bags. If you are off to the airport and have a plane to board, you’ll need to make sure your suitcase is within the airline restrictions. This can differ between airlines, so it is always best to contact the airline you are flying with and double check. Air New Zealand’s guidelines state that a checked bag can have a linear measurement of up to 158cm before an oversized charge is incurred. The linear measurement can be found underneath our product features section on each suitcase product page, and is calculated by adding together the external height, width and depth. In terms of weight, you are allowed to carry up to 23kg before you will be charged extra. That is why it is important to check the weight of cases before you purchase them and opt for the most lightweight case possible.
What Size Checked Case Should I Purchase?
Our range of checked cases come in either a medium or large size. If you are off on a trip that is longer that two weeks, then we would recommend a large checked case with a litre capacity of 100L or more. In terms of size, you are probably looking at something approximately 75cm or larger. A case of this size might also be good if you are heading away to a colder climate, allowing more space for bulkier items of clothing. This size case is also a safer option for over-packers.
If you are going away for 1-2 weeks, then we would recommend a medium checked case with a litre capacity of 70-80 litres. In terms of size, we would suggest something that is around the 65cm-68cm mark. This size is great when you are travelling to warmer climates, and should offer you plenty of space.
