Best High-End
Best Mid-Range
Best Inexpensive

We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. When planning for a trip out of the country, there are different considerations from when you're flying domestic. Many airlines have weight restrictions, even if you aren't checking a bag, and size requirements for overhead bins vary among carriers. One of these durable and spacious selections will allow you to take what you need while still looking stylish as you strut through the hotel lobby. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best luggage for international travel on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 14, 2018: As someone who has backpacked across Europe and taken many shorter international trips with a suitcase, I can confirm that the giant 80-liter backpack is completely unnecessary. They allow you to take more than you need, are difficult to organize, and hurt to lug around. Unless you're hiking through the mountains, the area between the train station and your lodging will be paved, so get a good carry-on and save yourself the trouble.
