Best trolley suitcases for a trip to Europe

Depending on the type of trip you book to Europe, the luggage you choose can change dramatically. One of the classic ways to see Europe is backpacking around the continent. But if you are in one place for a long time or traveling conveniently by train and/or airplane, you may choose to take more substantial suitcases.

You may do quite a bit of walking around major European cities and international airports. Lugging around a massive suitcase, backpack or duffle bag can become tiresome. A high-quality, durable trolley suitcase can prevent you from being burdened by bags.

After booking your trip to Europe, pick yourself up a trolley suitcase that will withstand airport bagging handling, commuting from airports to your accommodation, and the journey back home.

Samsonite Lite Box Alu Spinner

Although the Samsonite Lite Box Alu Spinner looks basic, it is a top of the range piece of luggage that will keep your possessions safe and sound. The Lite Box comes with an anodized aluminum shell. It is fashionable and functional for the modern traveler. The Lite Box has reinforced corners preventing it from collapsing when being packed on baggage carousels or in airports. The suitcase comes with double wheels and pull handles making it easy to get through airports or the streets of Madrid. Inside the Lite Box you will find small and large pockets to place your valuables. There is also plenty of space to pack away souvenirs.

What the Lite Box lacks in style, the American Tourister Curio Hardside makes up for. Not only is the Curio a great piece of luggage to take on your European trip, but it is small enough to stow in overhead compartments. Now, you don’t have to worry about your luggage being lost between New York City and London. The Curio is made from polycarbonate materials that offer super strength. The suitcase opens book-style, making it quick and easy to locate your belongings. You will find a spacious main compartment and two zippered compartments inside. Four spinner wheels allow you to move through airports with ease. There is also a three-dial lock that comes standard with the Curio that is approved by the TSA.

Full disclosure

I actually own this trolley by American Tourister. My wife gave it as a gift early 2019 and it has been at my side during all my trips. The trolley is light, strong and definately worth its price. Highly recommended.
