Travel is back, and we’re not wasting any time! Whether you’re heading out for a bachelorette party weekend, a quick business trip, a family reunion or some relaxing time on the beach in the sun, we want to make sure you’re all set!

Suitcases and luggage in general can be very expensive, but you obviously want something high-quality to protect your belongings and to stay in one piece as you travel. That’s why we picked out five affordable suitcases for your next short trip that give you more bang for your buck. These picks range from $40 to $112 — and they’re all carry-on size!

This Amazon Basics Suitcase


If you’re looking for something durable to protect more delicate items, a hardside suitcase is a great choice. This Amazon-made one has four spinner wheels, a telescoping handle and three zipper pockets inside as well. You can expand it up to 15% for bringing home souvenirs!

This Skyline Suitcase


This softer style suitcase is part duffel bag, but it has wheels and a telescopic handle so you can roll it through the airport without straining yourself. A soft suitcase is nice because it’s more flexible, and shoppers even say this has the “best price with high quality”!
