Travel Accessories - American Tourister - and some fun videos

American Tourister took over as my main brand of luggage carrier when they gifted me with a set of two Bon Air suitcases – big enough for my family travels – and I’ve been using them on my travels since then.

In case you didn’t know, American Tourister is owned by Samsonite and is available in over 90 countries. It is one of the leading luggage brands in the world and its vibrant, colourful style is aimed at younger travelers.

Whereas my old set had a soft case, the American Tourister has a hard shell and is made from 100% polypropylene – which is extremely strong yet quite lightweight.

The four wheels at the bottom make it easy to pull them along at airports and in hotels without porters.

They also have lots of compartments and pockets which is something I always look for in all my baggage – from handbags to suitcases. This helps to keep my clothes neatly packed.

Inside the bag

Since I’m more of a classic kind of girl, I chose the staid Midnight Navy colour however there are many more funky colours available – like Lime Green, Hot Pink and Flame Orange.

The suitcases come with a built-in TSA combination lock – which I love – because I’m usually always hunting for locks before I travel.

My husband says that they fit much better in our car trunk than our previous bags.

The bags come with a two-year warranty, and there’s bound to be a distributor near you that will send your bag in for repairs should you need it.

American Tourister created these fun videos about how different types of travellers pack their luggage.

“Everybody has a different way of discovering the world. Some of us just want to maximise every second abroad by cramming in as many experiences as possible. Others will only discover what language is spoken at their destination when they read the signs at the arrival airport. While foodie types take tasting cultures literally, and hop from one local restaurant to another, barely paying any attention to the sights other tourists are flocking to. “

Have a look and let me know which one describes you. (I think that I identify most with The Prepper)

Although the bags were sponsored by American Tourister, the views expressed as always, are my own.
