Suitcase Smart

Packing begins with the right suitcase. Too little and your belongings can get squashed. Too big and it can be a hassle. Figure out what's right for you and your trip. We've got luggage to suit all kinds of trips at all kinds of savvy prices.



Planning Smart

Planning is key. Whenever possible, being prepared in advance will help you better determine what you really need to take with you – giving you enough time to cut and add things as you go rather than packing too much or forgetting something important. Closer to your trip, you can also check the weather forecast for your destination which can help even more with finalising your requirements. It's always a good idea to stick to the 'if in doubt, leave it out' rule.

  • Notebook and Pen

Be a step ahead for flights and have a pen handy so you can fill any documents required on the plane. You may also find it's a time you can get creative!

  • The mini essential bag

From mani-care and tissues to toiletries, you'll always be thankful to have a little carry pouch filled with these handy essentials:


Finally, don't forget to lock your bag to keep your belongings safe!
