It can be difficult to find a cheap carry-on that is also the best value for money. There are many considerations you have to make in terms of carrying capacity, style, wheeled or not, airline dimensions and of course price. While most carry-ons will be suitable for traveling with, it is important to know that there are minor differences in regards to size. As not all airlines adhere to the same guidelines, especially when you are traveling internationally, you need to make sure that you choose one that suits your needs. While wheeled hard-shell carry-ons generally provide both security and versatility, there are some downsides to take into considerations. When traveling light, it is sometimes easier to take a rolling duffle bag with you as it can easily be folded into the right dimensions. Furthermore, when flying on a busy flight, you risk being asked for your carry-on luggage to go in hold due to space limitations in the plane.
There are several different types of carry-ons and the price range can differ greatly. While most will offer what you need, it might be worthwhile to consider choosing one that is backed by good reviews next to a favorable price. Buying cheap carry-on sounds like a good idea but in reality, it is a product that will last for many years and should be chosen with this in mind. As such, choosing quality is often the way to go as cheaper carry-ons often end up having faulty zippers, effectively making the item worthless, or poor materials that are not waterproof or show wear and tear really easily.
