Let us help you choose the perfect luggage to match your holiday
You wouldn't pack ski gear for a beach holiday, so why should your luggage be any different? Whether it's a European city break, a pacific island paradise or adventure in the outback, let your bags make the first impression. Be it suitcase, backpack, carry on or duffle bag - here are our top five picks to complement your next trip:
Flounce around Florence with Samsonite
Florence is, in a word, divine. Steeped in history and filled with romance you can indulge your every pleasure, be it the arts, architecture, fashion or food.

The Samsonite Lite Cube Dlx Trolley Case is the perfect match for your next European city break. With a metallic colour palette and toffee leather accents, this sleek bag from Samsonite oozes style and elegance. Its 360° multidirectional spinner wheels and bottom grip means you’ll navigate the cobblestones with ease. This deluxe Samsonite suitcase would give any traveller the confidence to sashay up the Via dei Calzaiuoli towards Florence’s famous Duomo, looking completely fabulous. Paparazzo, we are ready for our close up.
Canadian adventure made easy with Caribee
Land in Vancouver, head north and hit Whistler, one of the world’s most famous ski fields. And even if the ski season is well and truly dying down, a Summer mission to this spectacular part of British Columbia is well worth the effort. During the warmer months, Whistler is a hive of activity… skiers need something to do in the off season after all. From hiking to biking, horse riding to white water rafting or just head out to spot a few bears – a trip to Whistler in Summer would surely mean packing multiple backpacks? No worries, Australian made Caribee have designed their Global Explorer bag with your adventure in mind. Designed to be your home away from home, this bag is massive with a huge 125L capacity. So pack everything and get out there!
Learn Melbourne's every twist and turn with Qantas Longreach
Melbourne really is our nation’s capital… of culture (don’t tell Sydney we said that). It’s a city where Michelin stars meets food trucks, where hidden laneways house secret speakeasies, where cult fashion is as important as iconic football clubs. Who doesn’t want to while away a long weekend in Melbourne? But what case to bring to our endlessly cosmopolitan friend in the south? Encapsulating the fun and imagination of travel, the Qantas Longreach two-piece luggage set is a fresh addition to your collection. Modern and eyecatching, the Longreach will undoubtedly ensure an impeccably stylish transit, which one always needs in impeccably stylish Melbourne.
Nothing says tropical vacay like American Tourister
Are you dreaming of Fiji? White sand, blue waters, palm trees swaying gently in the breeze, cocktail in hand, a villa with private pool… And imagine the diving – the coral reefs teeming with incredible marine life? It’s a lush, green, exotic paradise. Now picture your luggage. Does a black suitcase really scream “tropical island getaway”? Probably not. Coming in acid brights like pink and yellow, American Tourister’s Curio luggage is the best way to get in the island spirit from the moment you check into your flight. We’ve timed this perfectly; April to November is the best time to visit Fiji as the weather is at its finest. Uniquely designed with a durable hard shell and an expander zip for additional packing capacity, this suitcase by American Tourister will let you take on the world, one beach at a time.
Explore the Red Centre with Blackwolf
We still call Australia home to some of the world’s most remote holiday destinations, and it doesn’t get more remote than our very own Red Centre.
