Luggage Frequently Asked Questions

Question: I am taking a break from the cool weather in exchange for a vacation in the southern sun. What type of clothing should I pack in my luggage?
Answer: Anytime you travel, it's essential that you pack according to both the location you are in and the one in which you will be arriving. The reason is because you will need to dress according to the climate you are leaving because you will also be returning at the conclusion of your trip. Afterall, you won't want to arrive back from your sunny vacation in shorts and a tank if the temperature at home is near freezing. It's a good idea to check the local forecast for all locations of your trip and pack something to wear that will fit each area. You may want to pack pants, shorts, t-shirts and a light jacket. If in doubt, a combination of clothing will keep you cool or warm according to the weather.

Question: I don't want to have to worry about losing my luggage through the airlines, so how can I make sure that my carry-on suitcase will meet the size requirements?
Answer: The best way to make sure that your luggage meets all restrictions, including size, is to visit the airline's website prior to leaving for your trip. If you are aware of the various requirements, you can pack accordingly and your trip will be a smooth ride.

Question: What is the best way to properly tag my luggage so that it can easily be found if lost?
Answer: Every piece of luggage should feature a tag containing your name, address, telephone number and destination. This not only applies to traveling by air or rail, but also when traveling by car. If your luggage is lost in a hotel or anywhere along the way, it can easily be located with the tag. Most luggage tags are placed on the handle of the bag and should be clearly visible. A notation of your contact information should also be placed inside of your bag incase the luggage tag should become detached for any reason.

Question: Is it necessary to lock my luggage?
Answer: Yes, regardless of how you travel, locking your luggage is essential to keeping your possessions safe. You should keep the keys in your purse or somewhere separate than an outside compartment on your luggage.

Question: How can I clean my luggage?
Answer: Most luggage can be spot cleaned using mild soap and water. Make sure that you rinse thoroughly and allow to dry before placing anything inside. If the manufacturer provides care instructions, they should be followed in accordance with their recommendations.

Question: How can I prevent clothing from becoming wrinkled while in my suitcase?
Answer: You can roll your clothing, which will not only prevent wrinkles and creasing, but will also save space.

Question: What is the difference between a softside and hardside suitcase?
Answer: A hardside suitcase features a hard frame and is sturdier than a softside suitcase, which contains no frame but offers the maximum in expandable luggage. If you tend to pack a lot, softside luggage will give you the flexibility that you need. Hardside luggage, on the other hand, is designed to help protect fragile items and offers more strength than other types.
