What is the best size suitcase for 1 week trip? Do you need a checked baggage? Will a carry on bag fit all your clothes?
Packing for a few days or a weekend getaway is easy, but when you plan a one week vacation, things get tough. Tempting thoughts for checked luggage cross your mind. What about the huge luggage fees? Sometimes these fees are higher than the price of your ticket, especially if you travel with a low-cost airline.
No matter how big suitcase you get, you will always stuff it. If you have more room, you will get a lot of stuff that you won’t need at all. The bad part is that you have to drag it with you from the airport to your hotel and back. It gets even worse when your one week trip covers few cities. Believe me, you only need a carry on luggage. I travelled a lot and I have never checked a bag.
You can pack all your stuff in a 21-22″ (50 -55cm) bag. This is the best size suitcase for 1 week trip. If you pack smart you can take different clothes for each day plus a pair of ballet flats. The best part is that you can take such suitcase as a carry on luggage.
