We know Peli fans are adventurous, globe-trotting types, but some air-travel luggage disasters can befall even the most seasoned voyager.
In this series of posts, we’re sharing our top solutions to some of the most common flight-related baggage mishaps. Follow these tips to fly in safety and style:
Disaster 1: Surprise hand-luggage fees
Airlines have strict size restrictions for hand luggage, and budget airlines usually only allow passengers to carry on a single piece of hand luggage. Standard low-cost airlines, such as Easyjet allow one case measuring 56 x 45 x 25 cm, while Ryanir only permits a stingy 55 x 40 x 20 cm. Exceed these limits, and you’ll be hit with a €50 fee to check-in your case at the boarding gate.
Solution: Make sure your hand baggage meets airline dimension regulations. Peli offers a variety of cases that are the perfect fit for air travel.
The iM2500 Storm Carry On Case (55.1 x 35.8 x 22.6 cm) is the most durable hand-luggage on the market. It’s versatile design makes it great for carrying clothes, cameras or other equipment, and it’s lockable for extra security. The 1510 Laptop Overnight Case (55.9 x 35.1 x 22.9 cm) includes a removeable accessory case for your laptop.
If you’d prefer to take a Peli ProGear Backpack with you on board, our S105 Sport Elite Tablet Backpack (48.2 x 33 x 25.4 cm) and the U105 Laptop Backpack (52 x 31.7 x 24.1 cm) models are great carry-on options for budget airlines.
The U145 Tablet Backpack (50.1 x 31.7 x 16.5 cm) and U140 Elite Tablet Backpack (49.5 x 34.5 x 29.2 cm) should get you through boarding charge-free on Ryanair (as long as you don’t exceed the 10kg weight limit).
