Investing in good luggage is part of being a good traveller these days isn’t it? No one wants to see another tattered old Sports Direct suitcase come round on the baggage carousel with the wheel missing do they? By the time you keep replacing it, you may just want to invest in some of our luggage picks we’re lusting after.

Globe Trotter isn’t any ordinary luggage 

Globe Trotter luggage is the kind of luggage you hand down to the next generation and they do get better with age, much like a fine wine. And after a few glasses, you may just want to whip out the credit card and explore your travel options with these…


Not your ordinary American Tourister

Brightly coloured luggage is easy to spot on the baggage carousel and the hard shell casing means it will withstand being knocked about (thank you baggage handlers). For those transporting fragile items, hard shell casing is going to be your best bet and more and more lightweight options are becoming available.

We’re loving the new American Tourister Soundbox luggage series available in new eye-catching colours – Golden Yellow, Spicy Peach, Deep Mint and Denim Blue. The campaign is fronted by none other than eye-catching footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and encourages you to #BringBackMore from your travels.


Louis Vuitton… the don? 

Louis Vuitton is known for their monogrammed pieces, remember when it was all the rage in the early 2000s? These days, the brand has gone back to basics focusing on more minimal designs but still keeping luxe at its core.

This is the kind of luggage that goes well with flying private. We can only dream about that, but for those wanting a slice of the high-life, why not start small with a hand luggage option? We’ll see you in the private lounge… 

When you find out you get checked luggage…

A reality check-in?

All these suitcases do look amazing, but let’s be real, they can cost more city break, luggage  handlers throw them around like an old football and if they get lost… well you’re screwed (for a little while). This is why you should always carry a spare outfit in your hand luggage as well as the essentials.

It’s important to match your luggage to the way you travel.

If you’re a backpacker, then of course you will need a sturdy backpacker but if you’re someone who is a frequent city-breaker, you will need a sturdy cabin case. Of course, the way you travel changes with age and destination, so think about your lifestyle, your future travel plans and just how much you want your luggage to reflect your personality.

You can check out our Fashion section for airport outfit inspo on that note. 

We’ll see you at Heathrow Terminal 3 by the champagne bar. Toodles!
