Find your family's perfect case

It might not seem like an important decision, but choosing the right luggage can help get your holiday off on the right foot. Equally, get it wrong, and you could end up cursing a bag that is too small for all your gear, too big to take as hand luggage, uncomfortable, flimsy or just plain impractical.

To help you find luggage that will make your trip go smoothly, the Family Traveller team set out to put various cases and bags through their paces. We took bags to luxury hotels, lugged them up mountains and even hoofed one on a round-the-world trip. To find your perfect travelling companion, browse the gallery, or jump straight to the type of luggage you're looking for.
