From the Samsonite Canada family
The holiday season is upon us, and for many, that includes travelling to visit family. We have a lot of experience travelling here at Samsonite Canada, and as such, we thought we’d share our list of holiday travel tips with you!
Nick – from our Sales team
To maximize on space in your luggage do not fold your clothing, always roll it into neat rolls instead. Not only do you maximize on space, but you also minimize on wrinkles. Don’t try this with your leather shoes or sneakers! 😊
Anisa – from our Ecommerce team
Buy a couple of $20 generic gift cards to bring with you to your family gathering – you never know who is going to be there that you weren’t accounting for!
Jeroen – from our Product team
For car travel, use cardboard boxes when transporting presents – it protects the presents, is more convenient for carrying the presents AND they can be used again to carry presents home after the party!
Tires work better if they are properly inflated – check them before travelling in cold weather as the tire pressure can drop. Also keep some blankets and a shovel in the car in case you get storm-stayed on the side of the road.
Lisa – from our Sales team
If staying at a hotel, check their website to see if the rooms include slippers and a robe, so you can cut down on packing. And don’t forget to pack small activity gifts for the kids to open and play along the way!
Richard – from our Design team
Bring a battery pack for extra juice during long journeys, and use packing cubes when sharing a suitcase, to keep everyone’s belongings separate and neatly packed!
Most importantly, don’t stress over a hectic travelling season – take a couple of minutes to calm your mind with some meditation.
