Choosing Travel Bags!

by Domenic Muto on 09/23/21

Time To Travel!

The Covid numbers are heading down and travel is heating up!  Are you ready to get out there and travel?  While a trip to Europe might not be on your radar right now, there are still many other opportunities for travel out there.  Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service wants you to be ready to go with your travel bags in hand.  Not sure what type of luggage you need?  Don’t worry, Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service can help!

There are many types of bags to choose from.  Your choice will vary depending on where you plan on using your luggage.  Common types of bags include:

•    Suitcases
•    Backpacks
•    Duffel bags

These bags come in different forms such as rolling, soft-sided, and hard-sided.
Other factors to consider when deciding which is the best bag for your travels are:

•    How long will you be gone? 
•    How will you be traveling?
•    Where will you be staying?
•    What will you be doing?

If you are just traveling for a weekend trip, then consider a carry-on bag if heading out on a plane or use a small suitcase for a road trip.  If you are traveling by plane and have lots of layovers then consider a backpack or light carry-on bag. Bus and train travel means you will be maneuvering your luggage quite a bit.  Consider a rolling suitcase or rolling duffel bag.  Are you planning on camping in a tent or staying at a 5-star hotel?  Different locations require different types of luggage. Finally, what will you be doing when you arrive?  Are you heading to the beach or to a cold climate to ski?  Your clothing and equipment choice also helps determine what types of bags you will need.

For example, sporting events such as football games are back in full swing.  Maybe you want to take a quick weekend getaway to go cheer on your favorite team.  Can you drive there?  Do you need to fly?  What are you bringing in your bags?  Where are you staying?  All of these factors need to be considered when choosing your travel bag.
