Fall is one of the best times of the year to travel. Summer crowds have come and gone, the weather is mild in most locations, and you’ll get cheaper rates for hotels and flights than during peak travel seasons like summer or around the holidays.
If you have fall travel plans this year, here’s some good news: Amazon is having a massive sale on luggage right now. There are discounts up to 60% off (!) on carry-on luggage, full-size checked bags, and complete suitcase sets. Plus, some of the top luggage brands like Samsonite and Delsey Paris are included in the sale.
Even if you aren’t traveling this fall, the discounts are still worth your attention. After all, your luggage has most likely been collecting dust for the past two years, so it’s probably time for a refresh.
Ahead, shop the best of the best deals from the Amazon luggage sale. Note: we prefer hardside luggage versus softshell luggage, because it’s more durable and protective, so most of the options featured here are of the hardside variety. Bon voyage!
The right carry-on bag is a traveler’s best friend. What carry-ons lack in space, they more than make up for in convenience. If you limit yourself to packing only a carry-on bag, you’ll cut down time spent at the airport by skipping the bag check line and proceeding straight to the TSA security line as soon as you arrive. The same goes for landing—after slowly but surely shuffling off the plane, you’ll be well on your way to your destination instead of waiting at baggage claim for your checked bag (or, even worse, risk the airline losing your luggage).
For a bag that won’t cramp your airport style, the Chatelet Hardside Carry-On from Delsey Paris, a fashion-forward luggage brand, is 26% off. The Chatelet bag has form and function, featuring design details like vintage-inspired faux leather straps and practical interior zippered compartments. Another stylish option that offers maximum protection for your belongings, this aluminum hardshell carry-on is well-reviewed and much more affordable than other aluminum luggage from name brands (an Away aluminum carry-on will run you $625). If you’re shopping for the best deal, the Rockland Melbourne 20-inch hardside carry-on is a massive 58% off for only $50 right now.
Then again, for certain trips, a carry-on bag just won’t cut it. Whether you’re packing for multiple people, jetting off for a lengthy adventure, or need to bring multiple outfit options, a checked bag is, sometimes, a necessity. The Delsey Paris large checked bag is currently 50% off, which translates to $125, the cheapest price we’ve seen since Black Friday last year. Classic luggage brands are also offering great discounts on their full-sized bags: 24-inch checked luggage from both Samsonite and London Fog is 30% off.
Finally, to get the most bang for your buck, shop for a luggage set. As it goes when shopping, if you buy multiple pieces in a set you’ll get a better deal than purchasing them individually. Whether you travel for long periods of time or you simply want to buy luggage for the whole family in one fell swoop, a luggage set is the way to go.
Our top-choice luggage set is the 3-Piece Samsonite Omni PC Hardside Expandable Luggage Set, and it is on sale for $414 (almost $200 off). It includes three bags: a 20-inch carry-on, a medium 24-inch checked bag, and a large 28-inch checked bag. All three suitcases feature oversized spinner wheels, TSA locks, and expandable zippers for when you inevitably overpack. Plus, Samsonite’s super-strong polycarbonate shell is dent and scratch-resistant to withstand years of wear and tear at the airport (not to mention, the set has a near-perfect 4.7-star rating and almost 20,000 reviews). Or, for a super-affordable luggage set, Rockland’s 2-piece carry-on luggage set is only $48 right now.
