Travel in Style
When oil prices plummet, it means the price of jet fuel goes down and we get better travel deals. Jet fuel currently costs about a third of what it did two years ago. Airline ticket prices have declined roughly 3 percent per quarter since last year, and granted this decline could be described as modest, but we are eager to plan a getaway.
When planning out the details of your travels, don’t forget to factor in the condition of your luggage. Will it fit everything you want to bring? Is it still functional while traveling from one airline gate to the next? When was the last time you bought luggage? Chances are, it’s probably time for an upgrade.
Not only does your luggage need to be durable, but it also needs to be mobile, offer efficient features, and reflect your style and personality. You may even want to consider airline luggage rules when making a decision. Here we list the top suitcases for travel from Bloomingdale’s, located at Fashion Island. We discover the best luggage brands and tell you why we love them.
Whether you’re a novice traveler or frequent flyer, this list will meet your needs.
