I thought I’d share with you the amazing news of American Tourister’s sale that’s going on from now up until July 21st. They have an amazing amazing range of new bags in various new colors and shapes.
Here are some things I didn’t know about the brand and traveling:
When you purchase a bag, you get a 3 year INTERNATIONAL warranty on all it’s accessories (wheels, lock, handle etc.) If you mess it up yourself IE scratch it and bang it up, it doesn’t count! Neither does it count if the zipper jams. They’re only responsible for manufacturing mistakes, so keep that in mind!
American Tourister has been around since 1930, where the owner wanted to originally sell luggage for 1$ and the brand grew from there.
You get excellent value for the price you pay, and the bags are more or less a reasonable price for everyone!
They are located in various locations, Marina, Muthana, Souq Al Kabir, and other outlets like Debenhams and some hypermarkets as well!
The maximum size for your cabin luggage (carry on) is 55 centimeters. It must also not weigh more that 7 KG. They make their bags extremely lightweight to ensure travelers don’t have to worry about extra weight!
Large suitcases should not be more that 32 KG. I know that sometimes airports let that slide, but 32 is the international limit and that should be abided.
There are 2 types of locks (I honestly had no idea) The TSA lock, that has a red logo on the lock itself, and the regular lock that has digits. The TSA lock basically means that it has a universal key that can be used at different airports. In places that are more strict about checking luggage, they usually have these keys, and instead of breaking your locks, they can use the key and check in a more civilized manner:P
All in all, they’re an amazing invest, both in style and in durability.
