PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - December 14, 2016) - DELSEY, the iconic French luggage brand known for seventy years of timeless quality and audacious design, is making family travel easier by revealing tips for holiday trips:
1) Travel light
Sometimes less is more. And choosing the correct carry-on is one of those times. Lightweight luggage means you can take more of what you want, whether it is clothes, toys, or souvenirs. DELSEY has reinvented the lightweight game with the BASTILLE LITE hard-side and CHATILLON soft-side collections. These carry-ons weight only 6 pounds each, which means travelers have weight for their belongings when flying on most domestic carriers.
2) Stay on schedule
Planning ahead for both sleep and activity is always worthwhile! And if sleep is the goal, whether on the road or on the plane, make sure favorite blankets, pillows and other necessary items are easily accessible. A variety of toys, coloring books, candy, snacks and medication may all be necessary even on the shortest trips! And it is important to pack accordingly.
DELSEY SKY 2.0 and DELSEY CHATILLON collections each offer an underseater designed for this purpose. These bags fit under the front seat of the car, or under the seat of the plane so travelers don't have to reach into the overhead compartment or pull the car over to access carry-on luggage in the trunk. And with the smart band that slides over the tube of the bigger case, the underseater attaches to any other upright luggage and can be conveniently pulled with one hand, leaving the other hand free for hand holding.
3) A busy child is a happy child
While monitoring screen time is part of parenting, parents may want to be a little lax on this during travel. Tablets, mobile devices and headphones usually top the entertainment list for both adults and kids. Come prepared with fully charged devices and back-up batteries.
Most DELSEY soft-side cases have several exterior pockets to carry laptops, tablets and other electronics. DELSEY has also designed a 19 inch hard side bag, SHADOW 3.0, which features an exterior pocket, perfect for all these indiscernible items!
4) Attitude goes a long way!
No matter how well prepared you may be for your trip, expect the unexpected. Flights can be delayed, road conditions can be bad, and things simply don't go as planned. Sometimes the best moments happen on the journey and not at the destination. As with everything in life, your good time is what you make it! Attitudes can be contagious and if you are having a good time, chances are your kids will be too. Keep things light, upbeat and positive, and enjoy every minute (or almost every minute!) of your trip.
