Glamorous and exotic holiday destinations are once again being researched by those wishing to be seen on the beach, in the airport and at the poolside bar. With this in mind, items such as travel bags for the stylish and fashion conscious are back in vogue.
These days, most flights now charge extra for carry on luggage such as small travel suit cases, so you may as well pay for your old fashioned suit case and let the airport staff take the weight off.
