Most frequent travelers have several suitcases in their collection, but they still tend to struggle with picking the perfect one for their trip. If you fall under this category, here are a couple of questions you should answer in order to pick the perfect luggage size for your next journey.
Long or Short Stay?
If your trip lasts for a couple of days, you’ll probably only need a tiny backpack or a carry-on, but should opt for a larger suitcase when it comes to longer trips. Doing laundry will also factor into this important decision.
Rain, Snow, or Sun?
Packing everything you need into a tiny suitcase during summer and spring is super-easy, but things tend to get a little bit tricky once it gets cold outside. Check the weather forecast before your trip, and opt for a bigger suitcase if it’s going to be chilly outside, since you’ll have to pack bulkier items that take much longer to dry even if you’re doing laundry during your trip.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to the rules of the airline you’re traveling with. If your baggage is included in the price, feel free to carry whatever you want. If that’s not the case, and you have to pay an extra fee for every piece of luggage – including a carry-on – see if you can scale down and travel with your tiniest suitcase.
