Many of us are taking our first holidays abroad since the start of the pandemic. And, when dusting off our much-neglected suitcases, thousands of us are finding that they're no longer fit for purpose.
Needless to say, finding good quality, durable luggage that is actually in stock reminds us of the Great Toilet Roll shortage of 2020. But the great news? Although they're selling fast, Amazon's bestselling suitcases are still available.
Even better, some styles have up to 48% off thanks to early Prime Day deals.
The official start of Amazon Prime Day might be July 12-13, but the site is dropping prices on loads of stuff in the lead-up to the big event.
Check out our round-up of top-rated luggage, and why it deserves to be part of your holiday experience.
Keep scrolling for Amazon’s five bestselling suitcases:
Flight Knight Lightweight 4 Wheel ABS Hard Case Suitcases | from £54.99 at Amazon
