Back Pack Or Suit Case?

Booking your holiday and arranging what to clothes to bring with you on your vacation would all depend on what type of luggage you intend to take with you on your trip. Generally there are two options, the first would be a suitcase the other a back pack. Some people have strong opinions on both types but neither is right or wrong just personal choice.

Passengers who travel using back packs tend to like them as this type of luggage allows them to use their hands while their luggage is on their backs. No need to watch over the luggage piece on the floor in airport or railway lounges. Also means you can use your free hands to take photos when out and about or if you wish to call someone you can do so without the need to be looking out for your suitcase. One of the big disadvantages would the sheer weight of the pack on your back. One of the main difficulties of carrying around this type of luggage would be that you can not see what is behind you or who and if you hit them with your back pack as you try to go through the gates of London underground for example. Anyone travelling on a bus from the airport into town may have trouble trying to find a seat for them and their luggage.

A suitcase is the most common type of baggage to use when going on holiday. They are perfect to use as they come in different colours and styles to suit your personality. Planes are now equipped to allow passengers to carry their small cabin suitcases onto the plane with them when they are travelling as a small allowance for each passenger is agreed when booking. Carrying your luggage onto the plane is ideal for short breaks or business trips as travellers don’t need to wait around for their luggage coming off the carousel. Another fab thing in its favour is the practical use of the suitcase especially if it is on four wheels as the case will glide easily through the concourse. One major down side to the cases though are they are tricky to carry upstairs or on escalators at airports or train stations.

Passengers have their own theory about back packs and suitcases and which one is the best for travelling. Packs tend to be used by students as opposed to suitcases. Where as families and business tend to use cases and feel they are treated a bit better upon arrival at airports and hotels.

Travellers are unsure during the day what to place their items when on holiday. A shoulder bag could be used as this can be worn either over your shoulder or across your shoulder and front. Some people may find this uncomfortable on their necks if the bag is weighed down with sun lotions, water etc. You may consider a small bag pack which may solve your problem of neck pains as the weight will be distributed over your back and shoulders and also holds a lot.

You decide on what type you prefer and also take into account what type of holiday you have booked. The choice is yours at the end of the day.
