March Break is one of the busiest travel times of the year for Canadians. If you’re one of the lucky ones leaving winter behind for the week, check out these March Break must-haves. These items will add convenience, ease and comfort to your travels so you can spend more time focused on some well-deserved relaxation!
Samsonite is the biggest name in luggage and has been known for their quality products for over a hundred years! Their luggage is durable, functional and stylish. We particularly love their Canadian and Stryde Collections.
Bring your Canadian spirit all over the world with the Canadian Collection featuring Canada-themed prints. The Stryde Collection is sleek with a unique shape and larger handle, designed to offer a greater and more controlled range of motion. Both collections feature multi-directional wheels, TSA approved locks, interior compartments and compression straps.
Travelling with children? Little ones will love the new Dream Riders Collection which features a variety of adorable, animal designs. Those long walks to your airport gate will be much more entertaining as children can ride on the luggage while being pulled. There is also an additional strap that makes it easy for children to pull their suitcase on their own.
Samsonite also offers many items to make packing for travel easier. Their Compression Bags, Packing Cube and Travel Kits are just a few of many convenient packing items they carry.
The Samsonite Pack-N-Go Duffle is especially handy for those who love to bring home souvenirs. The duffle packs away into a toiletry pouch but opens up into a 24 inch duffle that doubles as a back pack. Need something smaller? The Root’s Pack & Go Daypack can be stored in a pouch not much bigger than your own hand!
Add some comfort to your flight with a travel pillow and sleep masks. Samsonite’s Magic 2 in 1 pillow offers two different shapes so you can customize it to your liking. Ardene’s travel pillows and sleep masks come in fun prints and styles so you can look cute while you nap.
Airplane cabin temperatures can get chilly. Instead of packing a bulky blanket, bring a lightweight, woven scarf from Ardene, Roots Ricki’s or Reitmans. This saves space and doubles as a fashionable wrap for late-night walks on the beach.
Flying to somewhere warm in the middle of winter can cause some concern about what to wear for your flight. Instead of changing in a tiny airplane bathroom, you wear a convertible from Columbia. They offer men’s and women’s apparel with easy to roll-up pant legs and sleeves with attachments to keep them secure. They also include sun protection in the material. Get on the plane in pants and a long sleeve shirt and walk off in cargo shorts and a tee without having to change your outfit!
The Roots Hybrid coat and Columbia’s selection of packable jackets are great for March Break travel. These jackets easily fit in your carry-on so you don’t have to worry about carrying a heavy winter coat around when you arrive at your destination.
Travelling with a baby can present some challenges but the Skip Hop Greenwich Simply Chic Backpack solves a few. This fashionable backpack is actually a diaper bag that comes with a changing pad. With a large main compartment, multiple pockets for organization and room for a 15 inch tablet or laptop, you may not even need a separate bag for your own carry-on. Wear it on your back or use the stroller attachment – perfect for theme parks or doing activities around the cruise ship.
Don’t pay for overpriced water bottles at the airport. Bring one of these bottles from Samsonite and Stokes and fill it up after going through security. The Samsonite bottle collapses for easy storage and the Stokes bottles are made from stainless steel which helps keep your water cooler, longer.
Avoid the luggage carousel struggle! Locate your bag easily with these flashy keychain tags from Ardene.
Make sure you stop by the Windsor Crossing Customer Service office or go to windsorcrossing.ca/coupons when you come to shop for your travel items. Our Samsonite coupon offers a free Yacht Tote with a purchase of $150 or more – perfect to take to the beach!
