Popular Bags Australia
It is truly a dreadful start for a vacation to arrive and find that your luggage has been damaged. Its also pretty bad to see luggage deteriorate over the course of several trips. But we feel frustrated and powerless to stop it because the damage occurred after it was checked in at the airport.
But we can greatly reduce the chance of damaged luggage by choosing the type of luggage that is less likely to be mishandled. And simply be choosing luggage that is more robust.
It seems that bags with wheels do better with airport baggage handlers. The wheels simply make is easier for the airport staff who have to constantly move the heavy bags. Wheeled luggage can be pushed rather than carried; it is also less likely to be thrown on a stack. This means less wear and tear.
Obviously a strongly built, robust case is going to last much better than a flimsy case, especially if it is heavily loaded.
If you get a 4 wheeled hard case that can be easily stacked with other cases then you do far better by the baggage handlers than a soft heavy case that ends up being thrown around.
If you travel on a regular basis, or even just once per year, then its worth investing in some good quality cases that will last the distance. Look for luggage that has wheel, that is robust, reasonably light and easy to stack. Something that is easy to identify makes it easier when collecting your luggage.
