Choosing the right suitcase for your destination

Every time you have to go somewhere, it's the same old story : packing can be a real headache ! Invest in a suitcase that is adapted for the way you travel !

Choosing your luggage depending on your destination means optimising how your belongings are packed and travelling with peace of mind.  Cabin suitcase, wheeled bag, or travel bag ? Tell us where you're going, we'll tell you what type of luggage you need !

You’re going on holiday to France

France has no shortage of beautiful beaches ! This summer, you have plenty of choice, from the brown pebbles and rocky shores of Brittany to the sunny coves of the French Riviera or the long, fine sandy beaches of Corsica. Depending on the length of your stay, follow our guide to help you pack your swimming costume, summer clothes and sun cream !

For a weekend or short break

For a short getaway, you don’t need to pack too much.  A travel bag or small carry-on case is much more suitable. You can easily slip them into the boot of your car or the luggage compartment on the train.

The Boston bag is divided into several internal compartments, making it ideal for a romantic weekend away. Its denim lining takes care of your clothes, while its leather exterior finish is a guarantee of elegance. The multiple pockets keep your toiletries separate from your clothes and accessories. This bag is also ideal for a day at the beach!

The Sondo expandable suitcase has an expandable compartment and a capacity of up to 38 litres.  It is ideal for a shopping trip to Cannes or Deauville: even if you come home with twice as many clothes, you’ll find a way to fit them in!  Available in champagne, orange, red or silver, to match your holiday mood.  Or there’s also the more discreet blue or black.

For a longer trip

Are you going away for a week or two to recharge your batteries in the beautiful Verdon Gorge or visit the châteaux of the Loire Valley? Then you’re going to need a bigger bag!

The 68 cm Uppsala wheeled bag is ideal. Rain or shine, this coated canvas case with leather trim will follow you everywhere, protecting your clothes from unpredictable weather.  It is easy to carry, with carry handles and a telescopic handle for pulling along.

Choose clay grey, black or navy for a trip to the seaside or chocolate, curry or terracotta for a gastronomy tour of Burgundy or Normandy!

You’re travelling to Europe

Have you planned a mini-break in one of Europe's capital cities ? Or are you going on a business trip to Rome or Berlin?  Or have you booked a villa on a Greek island or Spanish Costa for your summer holidays? If you are on a Mediterranean cruise, travelling to Italy by train, or flying to Portugal or Finland, choose the Moorea cabin bag. It has several advantages:

  • With dimensions 48 x 30 x 20 cm, it complies with the cabin luggage requirements of most airline companies.
  • It can be hand-held or worn over the shoulder, so that you are completely free to move around.
  • Its double front or top opening gives you to access to its contents at any time.  
  • It can be locked with a padlock to keep your belongings safe. 
  • If required, you can pull it along, with the telescopic handle of a wheeled suitcase. 
  • Choose your colour to suit the theme of your trip: blue like the sky, bronze like museum treasures, or black like an evening dress!

Going further afield

Travelling abroad often means flying. For your clothes and shoes, opt for an XL suitcase and check it into the hold.  Ideally, you should pick a hardshell suitcase with wheels, such as the Tanoma “Jumbo” 4-wheeled suitcase, which offers the added advantage of being expandable. Are you bringing back tea from London  or olive oil from Morocco for all your friends ? Don't worry, there will be space for all your souvenirs !

To keep your essentials with you in the cabin when you travel by plane, opt for a backpack that leaves your hands free.  This 40 cm – 50 cm solution is ideal for business trips, as you can fit your laptop inside.

Alternatively, consider a vanity case that fits over the handle of your suitcase when you leave the plane. Their size is suitable for carry-on luggage and their shape and compartments will be very useful for storing everything you need on your flight.

When flying, don't forget that liquids must be placed in a transparent, re-sealable plastic bag that holds no more than 1 litre !

In summary...

Wherever you go, for business or leisure, we have a durable luggage solution at the right price so you don’t have to worry about the logistics. Whether you're travelling by car on the roads of France, by train on the railways of Europe, by plane in the global skies, or by boat on the world's seas... you won't find a more reliable travel companion than a bag, a suitcase or a vanity case!
