luggageSummer is officially here, and I don’t know about you, but all I can think about is getting away for some sun and relaxation. But with the fun of a holiday comes the annoying bits: packing … and buying all of the stuff you need to actually go on that holiday.

In the first part of our series on prepping for your holiday, we’re focusing on luggage. We all have old luggage sitting around the house that’s seen better days. But when you’re a proper adult, maybe it’s time you didn’t use the same travel bag you used on your gap year, no? The problem with luggage and other travel gear is it can get quite pricey, and for something you might use a few times a year, who wants to spend loads of money on it?

We’ve rounded up some of the best deals on luggage so you can pack everything you need to have an amazing holiday for less!

Luggage Superstore have a 10% off promo code, on top of some already great deals on their site. If you’re looking for a really sturdy wheeled hardside case, the Delsey Belfort 4 wheel spinning case ticks all the boxes, with a 92L capacity, a 3-point locking system, a TSA fixed combination lock and many more features, it’s going to last you for years – plus it comes in six colours, and at £138.95 it won’t break your holiday budget. Looking for something smaller so you don’t have to check a bag? You can search for cabin luggage by airline on the Luggage Superstore site to make sure it fits the size restrictions of your particular flight. My favourite: the American Tourister Pasadena 2 wheel upright cabin case. It’s the perfect size to pack for a short break, includes a TSA fixed combination lock, and comes in four colours, all for £71.10.

Bags Direct are another fantastic resource for all of your luggage and travel gear. If you’re travelling for business (or just can’t leave the laptop at home on holiday – no judgment here!), a sturdy, stylish laptop bag is a necessity. The i-stay ladies laptop bag has loads of compartments to organize your stuff, and includes an innovative non-slip bag strap that helps improve body alignment and avoid aches and pains you usually get carrying a heavy shoulder bag. It’s currently on sale for 20% off at £35.99. Don’t need a new bag but just want the strap? You can buy it separately for £10.39 on sale. If you’re more of a backpack carrier, this CabinZero ultra light massive capacity backpack (£36.99) is cabin-sized, lined with nylon like a suitcase, and fits enough for you to forget about check-in luggage. Plus, sign up to their newsletter and you’ll receive a 10% off code for your first order!

Nothing’s worse than your kid screaming and trying to run away from you in an airport when your hands are full and stress levels are already high. Trunki have the perfect solution: a wheeling bag that kids can ride on! Just pull the strap and your kids can ride along on their very own bag through the airport. You can choose from loads of options, from solid blue (£34.99) to Hello Kitty (£44.99), animal designs (£39.99) and more. With a 5-year guarantee and free UK delivery, it’s pretty much a no-brainer to order one of these for your next holiday.
