Preference for Brand Name Luggage

Jan 12, 2008
Many people might wonder why vacationers would travel across the Atlantic Ocean just to buy brand name luggage. Some people back home might think it is because the name brand luggage bears a gorgeous tag with the designer's name imprinted on it. Other rumors will fly that the brand name luggage is made from the skin of alligators, ostrich, or rattlesnake. What the people back home were not told is that the brand name luggage was sold with free shipping back to the United States.

Some travelers will be compelled to buy name brand luggage at the airport. Most travelers might raise an eyebrow or two because most people simply enter an airport and check luggage in for the flight they are taking. Those that choose to buy luggage while at an airport are the ones who are taking advantage of duty free shopping and were able to buy brand name designer luggage at a terrific discount. Duty free shops will often ship any luggage back to the United States at no charge.

An even discounted price on brand name luggage does not take away from the prestige of owning luggage branded with a name. The colorful fabrics in certain sets would seem to some travelers to make perfect gifts for happy couples who are being married soon. The discounted prices allow travelers to buy many sets and when the holidays roll around they decide to present them to friends as Christmas gifts. Brand name luggage pieces have a way of impressing people without moving or rolling.

Some men are perplexed when the ladies in their life tell them that they are going shopping for name brand luggage. They might be further perplexed when the ladies walk through the door with bags filled with marvelous purses that are equipped with luxurious accessories. These women probably received the best service that day and were persuaded to buy all carry-on luggage they could handle. Name brand luggage is a matter best left up to women on some days because luggage perceptions differ.

The great prices on name brand luggage that bears a designers name which are found on auction house listings might differ greatly from the prices for the same product that can be found on Rodeo Drive or in New York City. Name branded luggage has become so popular that many entrepreneurs are selling knock-offs of the pristine and beautiful name brand luggage items bought through auctions.

Some people buy luggage and personalize it with engraved pieces of metal. Others might choose to place a rough edge label on it that was sewn by a friend. Even if the luggage bears a designer name, travelers always have extra time on their hands at some point in the travel to spend a little time putting their own designer brand on the pieces of luggage that they own. Some travelers think that these name brands on luggage will make them easier to spot as they tumble onto the moving turnstiles at an international airport, and some are disappointed when they are asked to show a baggage claim to prove that they truly own it.
