We all know that travel luggage is notoriously expensive. Yes, there is a good reason for that, but why should you break your bank account to get highly functional, stylish luggage?
If you’re looking for budget travel luggage, you’ve come to the right place. Below is a list of luggage that is under $200.
There are a couple of underdog brands on this list, and I’m sure that you’ll notice one or two big brand names as well.
As the cheapest luggage on our list, the Sausalito Superlight is fantastic.
The bag is made from micro ballistic nylon fibre in a fly-weight construction and has a wire frame exoskeleton for added support.
Expandable, lightweight and durable, this carry-on ticks off all the most important criteria. Add in the hanger compartment, 360-degree glide-rite spinner wheel system and the curved, multi-stage handle, and the result is a stunning yet highly functional bag.

Created with polished carbon fibre, the Di Carbonio Elite is made to impress.
The carbon fibre is strong, yet lightweight, and the design prevents scratching. The ergonomic gel handle ensures that your hand won’t be constantly slipping due to sweat, while the thin wheels are deceptively strong and have a 360-degree rotation.
For easy packing, there are a couple of internal pockets, as well as tightening straps to keep your clothing in place. And the best part? This case comes with 3 inbuilt TSA combination locks, keeping your belongings safe and secure while you travel.

Choosing what to pack for a trip is usually the most troublesome part, and hopefully finding the right luggage will be one less thing to worry about. Remember to always keep your passport (and visa if applicable) close at hand, to avoid any time wasting at the airport.
I wish you a safe and fun-filled trip. May your adventure be great and troubles small.
