  • We have bought a lot of luggage from Zellows and Strandbags and have found them to be good quality and reasonably priced.

  • You need to be careful with buying cheap suit cases, especially for overseas travel. The airlines can be pretty rough with luggage, cheap stuff has a high chance of breaking open

  • Try looking on Ebay, Reject also have good sales.

  • Just check online for sites like Groupon, Catch of the Day, Scoopon, sometimes they have great deals.

  • I would try to buy second hand good quality as otherwise the handles and zips will let you down. Have a great holiday.

  • Maybe you could try the local op shops, followed by GumTree since these places will hold items that are pre-loved and should be cheaper than new. There can be really good bargains if you find what you want. Also have a look on Ebay, since they often have brand new items that you can’t find in the shops for a reasonable price, or people sell items that they no longer want. Don’t forget that you can buy small wheels / trolleys to help you manage larger cases. If your luggage is mainly clothing you could get away with a large backpack / cloth bag which would be light, then put more delicate items in a sturdy suitcase.

  • I googled suitcases and found there were reasonble prices around but in the end we borrowed from family!

  • Interesting question – we were in a luggage shop last week and were wanting a “bigger than cabin and smaller than medium case”.

    We were told that the size we were wanting is no longer made – 3 sizes only CABIN, MEDIUM and LARGE. This is across all brands – everything now super standardised. Perhaps seeking second hand could be possible? Otherwise a combination of sizes across family members might be necessary.
