Selecting Sturdy International Travel Luggage

August 1st, 2010 No comments

Overseas travel is hard on the body, mind and belongings – yes, that was not a mistake, you read it right: belongings. That is why it is so important to have sturdy international travel luggage. It might be overkill to purchase metal case, air tight roller bags; then again, it might not. And unless you are traveling from Los Angeles to Japan or New York to London, chances are, you will have a number of transfers before coming to your final destination. That means more stress on you and your luggage and more stress on you if you are worried about that luggage making it safely to the same place you do. Keeping in mind the many challenges of international travel will help you to find good luggage for the trip.

The first challenge is indeed, the physical wear of long travel. Being sure that your luggage is not crushed will bring you a peace of mind that is worth the price tag. Titan manufactures a number of Polycarbonate suitcases that can take a beating and not be crushed. Whether you choose plastic or metal, do the right thing and find a case that can endure a round in the bumper car rink.

The second challenge is selecting international travel luggage that can be safely, securely labelled. Everyone would be happier if they could count on the mental prowess of the people around them, but that is simply not the case. It is too easy for your luggage to end up on the wrong flight even if it has a neon sign flashing the destination at the airport loading crew. To reduce the chances of your bag going to Reno while you fly to Bangkok, finding luggage that is made to be clearly labelled is ideal. You will want to look for clear sleeve label slots such as those found on most Samsonite luggage.
