Planning your 2024 summer holiday? Whether it's a trip abroad, a staycation or just a weekend away, if you're travelling you'll want to be in the know about the best luggage to take with you.

Your suitcase or holdall is a place to keep your most important possessions, so security and practicality are a must. You likely want something lightweight but sturdy, and if you're anything like us, stylish.

If you're flying and have a suitcase going in the hold, it's also a good idea to invest in an AirTag - from £28 for UK customers and from $27 for US customers - so you can keep track of your things. Make sure your name and phone number are on your case to speed up its return and remember to pack plenty of essentials in your carry-on, too. We'd also recommend investing in some packing cubes to streamline your suitcase and make organising your things so much easier.

From classic suitcases to overnight bags and some very luxe designer luggage, we've found all of the best options with top reviews available to shop now for your next holiday.

    "I couldn't wait to get my hands on this hard-case suitcase for my latest holiday - after using a cabin suitcase without a top handle, this was a lifesaver! Not only does this suitcase look slick and stylish, I was impressed with how little damage it sustained during my journey. Its wheels proved robust even after continuous lugging up and down stairs as well as placing it in the luggage rack. Even when gliding through cobbled streets, I was happy this case didn't make too much noise and easily went over anything bumpy. 

    Thankfully weather wasn't an issue for my escape, but I was revealed I didn't have to worry about it thanks to it's water-resistant exterior. It's all in the detail though with this well-manufactured design - the spinner wheels were perfect and I loved the bespoke comfort-grip handle. Not only that, the expandable case comes with a dust bag for safe storage at home. You can also have the option of buying an adjustable strap to help secure luggage well too." - Sharnaz Shahid, HELLO!'s Deputy Online Editor
