5.    Clothes (Formal & Informal)

It is not necessary to pack your entire wardrobe when going on a cruise. Instead, try to plan what you are going to wear each day and depending on the dress code and the events, you can keep an adequate number of clothing items.

6.    Sea Sickness Remedies

Many people are unaware of the fact that they suffer from sea sickness which ends up ruining their trip altogether. There are many remedies to help prevent seasickness. You may want to look into options and ask your doctor for suggestions. 

7.    Other Items

Other than all the items mentioned above, it is also essential to keep a bottle of sunscreen, rubber slippers, swimsuit, and a sun hat in your luggage since you never know when you might need them.

Understanding the Differences between Hardside & Softside Luggage

Understanding the Differences between Hardside & Softside Luggage

Add some style to your business travel! #travelwithaleonModern-day travelers have easier access to destinations around the world. Using the internet, they can reserve their seats on an airplane, book their hotels, and even purchase local train tickets online. Once the trip has been planned from start to finish, passengers are left with questions about how they will carry their luggage during the journey.

A big question is whether to use Hardside or Softside luggage during their journey. Each type of luggage has its pros and cons, but one is better than the other if you choose the right kind. Mentioned below are some essential aspects of Hardside and Softside luggage that can help you in deciding on the type of luggage you want to use on your next trip.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Hardside Luggage

1.    Safety

By choosing Hardside luggage, you can free yourself from worrying about any expensive items that can break in case of rough use. Hardside luggage has an outer case which is stronger than fabric, however when choosing between polycarbonate and aluminum the more dribble option is Aluminum. Polycarbonate can crack while aluminum will not puncture or tear. 

2.    Extra Protection

ALEON has designed aluminum frame and body luggage that is built to last and protect your luggage from dirt and water.  ALEON's cases are airtight and water-resistant keeping in view the nature of air travel today. Each case is equipped with TSA combination locks to keep your items safe and secure. Aleon cases are sealed with a frame closure for extra security. With a frame closure, you can be assured that your case won't break open as often occurs with zippered closures. Likewise, frame closures cannot be overpacked because the rigid closure will not break down and expand as fabric will. 

3.    Colors

Another significant advantage that hardside luggage has over softside is that their colors look more prominent and vibrant on the Polycarbonate or Aluminum surfaces. Due to this advantage, Hardside luggage comes in a variety of stunning colors.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Softside Luggage

1.    Flexibility

Softside luggage is less rigid on the outer side making it easier for passengers to squeeze them into tight spots. However, you should be careful if you have an expensive or breakable object which can be damaged if too much pressure is applied to your luggage. The downside to flexible materials is thy will deteriorate and tear over time. 

2.    Less Vulnerable To Dings or Scratches

The material used in Softside luggage is soft and therefore it is not easy to put dents or marks on it due to rough use, but it can tear. If something gets on them, it will likely stain. The soft side can handle the impact but can also easily be damaged. 

3.    Outer Storage Pockets

Softside luggage usually comes with exterior pockets which can be used to store last minute items that you do not want to carry in hand. However, if these items are expensive, you might not want to give your bag in checked luggage rather keep it in the overhead compartment or below the seat.

Conclusion

Both, the Softside and Hardside luggage have their pros and cons; However, Hardside luggage seems to be a clear winner when it comes to added protection and safety of your items. The latest designs introduced by ALEON are strong enough to endure rough conditions and come in carry-on sizes as well which are easy to fit in the overhead bins or underneath your seats.

1.     Apparel That Covers Your Basic Needs

You would love to bring an ideal wardrobe for your snaps, but you should keep in mind that you want to spend most of your time enjoying rather than carrying and unpacking your dirty clothes. Choose apparel that is a must-have rather than nice-to-have in your bag. If one pair of durable sneakers and a pair of dress shoes will be enough, then don’t pack more as shoes take the most space in your luggage. Prefer clothing that is light and gives you more convenience over the ones that are trendy and make you look good in pictures.

2.     Wear Items That Are the Bulkiest

If your travel requires heavy items such as jackets and hiking shoes then wearing them while traveling will save you space and make your luggage light and convenient to carry. This is a great way to bring more while carrying less in your bag.

3.     Toiletries

Bring basic toiletries that will help in your trips, such as shaving kit, sewing kit, mouthwash, cologne, mini mirror, and laundry detergent. All this will help your prevent facing a difficult situation that you have not prepared for.

Efficient Ways to Pack Your Stuff

Now that you are ready with your list of stuff to take, the next part is to pack them to perfection. ALEON’s carry-on and checked baggage will keep your items safe and wrinkle-free in all conditions as long as you use the right techniques to pack them.

1.     Efficient Use of Space

If you are using an ALEON carry-on bag, then space should be the least of your worries as it includes a compression packing system that keeps your clothing wrinkle-free and the rigid compression boards hold everything in place using the Velcro straps. It also includes removable and padded interior organizer that can hold your laptop, tablet or any other portable device.

2.     Plan To Do Your Laundry

Being prepared for laundry during your travel is a great idea when you want to carry less. If you don't want to spend your budget on housekeeping, then you can keep a detergent to do your laundry yourself.

3.     Carry a Toiletry Bag

Having all your toiletries in a single bag adds great convenience. You can lay it flat on top of your stuff so that it doesn’t take much space and makes it easy to keep things together during the entire trip.

Traveling is a great way to gain new life experiences and enjoy a break after putting in busy hours at work and getting caught up in daily routine. Great luggage planning adds the much-needed convenience in your vacation and allows you to gain maximum enjoyment out of your trip!
