Best Cabin Luggage for Business Travel

Posted on October 13 2019

When you are travelling on a short business trip, it can be far quicker to pack a carry-on bag, rather than worry about checking in your luggage. This way you avoid waiting around at the baggage carousel after your flight and head straight to your hotel or business meeting instead.

The best cabin luggage for business travel has storage for your laptop, many different compartments, is simple to manoeuvre through the airport and store during the flight, and gives you easy access to your things as you need them — so you do not need to rummage.

The Ciao Under the Seat Carry On is perfect for short trips that require only a couple of outfits. It is small and compact so it fits easily under your seat while you are in the air, plus it has wheels so you can roll it through the airport. It is big enough to fit a laptop, tablet and other necessities, along with a couple of changes of clothes.

However, its small size deems it a personal bag. That means you could bring a second, bigger piece of luggage to store in the overhead compartment if you were going on a longer trip. This bag is the perfect place to keep items you want easy access to during the flight.

If you prefer a carry-on bag that is more of a handbag style, the Delsey Chatelet Soft Air Shoulder Bag is a tote with room for a laptop and other necessities. It also features several internal compartments to allow you to keep your items organised and separate.

The Nomatic Travel Bag features 40 litres of storage, so it is great for a multi-night trip. It was designed with many different compartments to help you pack efficiently and easily locate your items — these include a laptop sleeve, shoe compartment, laundry bag, valuables pocket, an area for storing cords and multiple other sections. Plus, it is a backpack, so it is easy to carry. The material it is made of is very durable, so your belongings will remain dry even if you get caught in the rain 

Sometimes, you need to pack nice clothes, particularly if you are going to an important meeting or conference. The last thing you want is to be forced into wearing wrinkled clothing to such an event, as inevitably happens when you travel. The Travelpro Luggage Crew features a garment bag which is big enough to hold a couple of suits or a few dresses. It also has a lot of space inside, plus many interior pockets. You can also roll it for easy manoeuvrability.

Away’s Bigger Carry-On is for those who need a bit of extra space. The internal compression system and laundry bag provide a great way to keep your outfits separate if you are on a business trip for a few days. It also features an ejectable battery that you can use to charge your phone.

The Travelpro Platinum Magna Spinner Suiter features a magnetic technology that keeps the wheels rolling in the correct direction at all times. The suitcase moves fluidly over different surfaces, such as tiles and pavement. It also features a garment bag, compression system and multiple compartments. It is also great for multi-night travel.

Whenever you travel, it is also important to have a comfortable and versatile pair of shoes with you. This means you do not need to pack as much, giving you smaller and lighter luggage to carry around.

Louise M Shoes are handmade in Italy from high-quality Italian leather and feature inner cushioning. Their classic style means they will never go out of fashion.

Remember to always check the airline cabin baggage allowance for the airline you are travelling on. Allowances can be different for domestic and international flights, and can depend on the level of frequent flyer, and class you are travelling in.
