Your primary luggage

Irrespective of where you are planning to travel, ensure the primary luggage you choose is light. Also, make sure its large enough to accommodate all your basic requirements. The most significant choice you will need to make is getting a good quality bag that is versatile and tough. Don’t travel with a delicate bag or one with damaged parts such as wheels, zippers or handles. Get a bag that can accommodate all your stuff and offer you versatility in accordance with your needs.

Bag selection should be onĀ  your packing lists

Wheels offer a nicer experience with luggage, we all agree to that. You don’t have to struggle and carry all the luggage on your back, head or hang it down your shoulder. However, this only works if you are traveling to a region whose roads are paved. It is also important to consider bags with 4 wheels as they offer greater versatility. If you have lots of things to carry, weight is likely to become a major issue. Especially if the distances you will need to walk are longer. 4 wheels handle weight better and everything shifts from you lifting half or the bag to just pulling it on the ground. In the event that you need to juggle between walking on pavements, hopping on flights and walking through cobblestones, carrying a bag that can act as a backpack and same time having an option to be rolled becomes advantageous.


As much as possible, always have a smaller carry-on bag that can accommodate fewer and lighter stuff. This guarantees you that you will not lose any of your stuff and you can check in and out of places faster with less of a hustle. Carry-on bags also mean that you have all your items within easy reach in case you need to retrieve anything quickly. In cases where you have to maintain a piece of heavier and bigger luggage, having the smaller carry-on with the most important stuff is wise as it keeps them within your reach at all times.
