Whether driving, flying or traveling by train, bus or cruise ship, every traveler needs dependable luggage. This is as true for an overnight trip as it is for an around-the-world excursion lasting weeks or months. Knowing that the latches are secure and tight, the wheels are easy to maneuver in tight spaces, and the handles are a comfortable height all contribute to peace of mind when away from home. This is what Samsonite hardside luggage can offer. After all, everything in the suitcase is important or it wouldn't be carried along.
Choosing Samsonite hardside luggage is easy with a few simple tips. Most travelers wonder what size of luggage to buy and what features they really need. There are many sizes and features available, and your usual travel needs dictate the best size and types of features for you. A weekend getaway or long four-day weekend trip usually calls for an upright suitcase of at least 20 inches. This is enough to hold clothes and toiletries for one to four days for the average traveler.
Whether traveling by air or not, it's a great idea to have a rolling suitcase. Not only are rolling cases convenient in large international airports, but they're real back savers when checking in and out of hotels and going from a terminal to a train or ship or any place where lots of walking is involved.
Trips lasting four days to one week require a bag at least 24 inches, while trips lasting between one and two weeks call for at least a 28-inch suitcase. Travel plans lasting two to three weeks require larger 30-inch suitcases. When traveling by air, it's a great idea to look for TSA-friendly suitcase locks. This can really speed up the process of going through airport security. Spinner suitcases are equipped with swivel wheels that move in all directions-perfect for crowded terminals. All these features and more are available in Samsonite hardside luggage selections.
In addition to the primary suitcase, travelers need a separate case for special gear, such as ski equipment, scuba diving gear, a set of golf clubs or other activity-specific equipment. For travel plans that last more than a couple of hours, a carryon bag is ideal for snacks, drinks, books and magazines, games to occupy everyone and other needs for the journey. The carryon bag is also the perfect place to keep tickets, maps, brochures of events and attractions, and other items that might be needed at a moment's notice.
