Commuting to work? Taking the family on a globe-spanning getaway
? However far you're traveling from home
, the right type of luggage will be large enough to fit everything, yet also lightweight and easy to transport. Groupon stocks a wide variety of travel bags so that you can easily find the one that matches your trip, along with helpful accessories
such as document wallets, TSA-compatible locks, toiletry bags, and makeup cases.
Headed to School?
For decades, the backpack
has been the agreed-upon "it" bag for students. No mystery there: they're spacious and can accommodate lots of books and papers, with just enough space left to slide in a laptop. Also, the design distributes the burden of all that stuff evenly across your body, sparing your arms and freeing up your hands to carry more. Kids' travel bags
are an effective substitute for backpacks, however, pairing the spacious storage with convenient roller wheels and sometimes even a Star Wars
character on the outside.
Headed to Work?
The travel bag of choice for office workers, a briefcase (and increasingly, a laptop bag)
is tailormade for containing and neatly compartmentalizing all your important papers and electronics. Your choice of materials and design also lend themselves to professional contexts (think leather instead of polyester). Crossbody messenger straps and drop handles make for comfortable commuting whether you're biking to work or heading there on foot. And if you typically hit the gym after work, don't forget a duffel bag
with all your fitness gear.
Headed to the Airport?
The travel luggage you choose will depend on the type of trip you're taking. Just a quick business or weekend trip? Avoid the baggage fees and pack just the essentials in a small carry-on
. An extended European vacation? A large hardside spinner case
can stand up to abuse from being loaded and unloaded repeatedly, and is designed to be lightweight and maneuverable in a crowd. If you travel frequently, a luggage set
with bags in different shapes and sizes offers maximum versatility. If you like to travel quickly, however, rolling luggage
ensures that nothing you bring with you will slow you down.
