After more than a year spent at home, it’s clear that people are ready to start traveling again. Americans are flying at the highest rate we’ve seen since the start of the pandemic, with more than 7 million people passing through airport security in the five-day period leading up to Memorial Day. And for anyone who is gearing up to head out on vacation this summer, there are a few essential items you’ll want to have before you book your ticket.
Thankfully, Amazon has you covered. The retailer’s long-awaited Prime Day event will be held June 21 and 22 this year. But before then, you can find a number of already-launched deals across the site, including a ton of impressive discounts on suitcases and travel accessories.
The Amazon Basics Hardside Carry-On is perfect for weekend getaways or short trips. It has three interior zippered pockets to help you stay organized and can be expanded to fit all of the souvenirs you’ll definitely be bringing home. It has an average 4.7-star rating from more than 23,000 reviews and is even a favorite of travel pros. “Currently I’m traveling for the first time with my new suitcase and I LOVE IT!” one flight attendant wrote in a review. “It rolls with complete ease!!! It’s sturdy too!! My arms and back feel absolutely zero stress.”
