Carry on Vs Checked

Jump to last reply

My Friday and I are traveling to Dublin, London, Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam in September 2015!

We are toying with the idea between Carry on vs Checked bag?

Pros to Carry On's
* carry on everything is with us at all times
*Airlines won't loose your luggage
* you dont have to wait for your luggage arrive

Cons
*you wont be able to fit all of your souvenirs in your bag
*you have to carry it through all of the airports with you

Pros to Checking
*you dont have to carry a bag with you through the airport and on the flights (including the connecting flights)
*its one bag with plenty of room within the bag for souvenirs

Cons
*Its big to transport on public transportation
*It could get lost with the airline

Cost is not a factor, its free on all of our flights.

Does anyone have any tips? also on brands of luggage that you seem to like more than the other.

Thanks in advance!
