This week we will look at the 'Business Traveller' - check back over the next few weeks for casual, adventure and backpacker top picks!
Business travellers demand more from their luggage as they travel more frequently than a casual traveller, they often have more specific requirements such as tech storage or garment carrier inclusions and business travellers require reliability – a wobbly wheel just won’t do when racing from the plane to your meeting. So whilst business travellers are not usually venturing off the beaten path, they do tend to have their bags with them more than a casual traveller so durability is key. Business travellers also look for bags that will last a few years of frequent travel with a solid warranty so repairs are fast and fuss free.
Business travellers include anyone who has one big international conference a year, to those that traverse interstate weekly, they typically have the same basic needs from their luggage. The key factors we tell them to consider are:
The Victorinox WT Werks range –
The Werks collection has long been a favourite of business travellers. It’s tough and reliable, with an excellent warranty (covering airline damage) and the case has been designed with business travel in mind. The range itself is expansive with everything from suitcases to garment carriers and duffel bags, allowing travellers to mix and match exactly what they need. The bags all work together, with straps to hook the handheld bags to the trolley bags for easy coordination when using them together. The suitcases all include integrated and removable garment carriers. And there is a range of business briefcases to match, meaning just about any business travellers needs can be met from this one range.
Victorinox Spectra Range –
Victorinox are known for catering to the business traveller, and their key hard suitcase range is no exception. A wide range when you include the game changing Spectra expandable, the range includes cabin suitcases with removable mobile office capability allowing complete versatility for different types of travel. The Expandable collection allows you to have 2 suitcase sizes in one, meaning you can half the amount of luggage you need for all your different business trips – and Victorinox’s large range of briefcases and soft bags will easily work with the Spectra’s.
