After more than a year of lockdown, people are finally traveling again — a lot of people.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced in mid-June that it has screened more than 2 million passengers in one day, a milestone number that the agency hadn't seen since March 2020. The major takeaway: Travel is back, and in a big way.
Whether you have a trip planned or you're just dreaming of the vacation you're about to plan, you know how important reliable luggage is to smooth sailing. While you could just cross your fingers and hope your old suitcase has still got what it takes, here's something to consider: Amazon has slashed prices on select top-tier luggage for Prime Day that's guaranteed to get you to your destination with grace and style.
Samsonite, US Traveler, Vera Bradley luggage and more are marked up to 70 percent off. Whether you're shopping for yourself or the globetrotter in your life, you definitely won't want to miss these deals.
Save big on this bestselling suitcase set on Prime Day. You'll get a 20-inch carry on, along with more sizable 24-inch and 28-inch spinner suitcases. The suitcases are made from micro-diamond polycarbonate which scratch — your bags will look brand new, trip after trip. Side-mounted locks keep out would-be thieves.
"They look really expensive," a happy customer said, noting that they've even gotten compliments on the set. Another fan said the bad "pulled easily in every direction and never got hung up on anything, even in the parking lot." And, just in case you're planning to shop a little during your travels, they points out that "there is a moderate amount of 'give' between the two sides after it's zipped, even without using the third zipper to let things out more."
