Suitcase style

Jump to last reply

I know a lot of you travel light, and can make do with carry on, but that is not going to work for us.

From beginning of December we will be heading to Europe for 3 weeks - London, Paris , Italy - so will need plenty of clothes to keep us warm, dry, and slightly stylish!

In Austalia I usually travel with a hard shell suitcase, but am wondering about current security practices, / expectations in Europe.

When I was in the USA a couple of years ago, I used a soft-sided case with zippers that I secured with TSA approved padlocks.

I am wondering if I need to do this again, or whether the internally-locked hard-shell cases are OK for Europe?

(The difference to me is almost entirely financial - if I can't use the hardshells, I need to buy 2 or 3 new cases for the family!)

Thanks,

Rob
