Tips for Buying a Luggage Set that will make You Happy

Samsonite Winfield Three Piece Nest Hardside Spinner Luggage Set in Red

Whether you travel for business or pleasure frequently, regularly three to four times a year or take a once-in-a-lifetime trip, either throughout North America or overseas, you will need a luggage set that will get your belongings to their destination safely and in one piece. If you are a regular traveler, then you will have some idea as to how the right luggage set can prepare your for your adventure. On the other hand, if you’re not in the habit of traveling or you have never been in an airplane before, you may not know what to expect or to for in a luggage set. This brief guide outlines things to for when purchasing a luggage, no matter what type of trip you’re planning.

Size and Number


Take into account what type of trip you’re taking and how long you will be traveling. A general rule of thumb is the longer the trip, the more luggage or travel bags you will need. Luggage sets by manufacturers like Delsey and Samsonite offer luggage sets that include a number of suitcases in different sizes. Buying a 6-piece luggage set might be perfect for that dream cruise you’ve always wanted to go one, but if you’re visiting family two states over for a week in the summer, a two-piece luggage set may be just the right size.


Types of Luggage Sets


Typically, luggage sets fall into three general categories: hard-sided luggage sets; semi soft-sided luggage sets and soft-sided luggage sets. In addition to suitcases of varying sizes, manufacturers may also offer different types of travel bags like a carry-on, garment bag, cosmetic travel case, sports bag or duffel bag. Most luggage sets are designed to nest – fit one inside the other – while others aren’t. Decide what type of luggage set will best suit your needs.


Luggage Sets Construction


Especially for new travelers, it’s important that the luggage set you select for your journey is well-constructed, made of quality materials and is strong and durable. The features that a luggage set offers will make a significant difference in the comfort and ease of your trip. Ensure that the luggage set you choose has features like inline wheels, retractable handles, removable and/or adjustable straps and organizational pockets that will be practical and functional. Ensure that the hardware is easy to use and that features like handles and wheels operate smoothly.
