If you’re a passionate traveler, chances are you have an extensive suitcase collection with pieces in all shapes and sizes. Here’s a couple of things you should take into consideration when picking the one you’re going to carry to your next trip.

Extra Fees

Feel free to indulge if your ticket allows you to carry a lot of luggage, but be ready to scale down if that’s not the case. Budget airlines will ask you to pay extra if you want to travel with more than a carry-on, so check for yourself if it pays off.

Trip’s Duration

If you’re embarking on a short trip, you probably won’t need more than a tiny backpack, but that’s certainly not enough for a longer journey. That’s why the duration of your trip will be one of the main factors determining the size of the suitcase you’re going to pick.

Weather Forecast

It’s easy to pack all your things inside a tiny carry-on during hot summer days, especially if you intend to do your laundry while traveling. Things tend to get a little bit trickier in the winter when your clothes are much bulkier and it takes more time to dry them.
