Of course, the type of luggage you choose depends entirely on your needs. Are you interested in the ideal carry-on to avoid checked-bag fees? Would you rather a multi-piece set for extended family trips? Are you a business traveler heading overseas or a backpacker heading into the wilds? Answers to such questions will focus your search and point you to either cheap luggage sets or individual pieces.
Buying cheap luggage is fairly easy and can be the best way to travel in style. The article below enlists a couple of ways to buy cheap luggage sets.
Among luggage sets, our research turned up the four-piece (starting at $70) and (starting at $135). Most cheap luggage sets include several upright suitcases of varying sizes in addition to a carry-on tote and possibly a duffel or a small travel bag for toiletries. (Don't worry about storing all this gear. Most discount luggage sets nest; that is, each piece fits into the next largest size, so the only storage space you'll need is for the largest suitcase.)
