With zero countries currently on the UK's green list, staycations are synonymous with summer 2021. But it's not all bad - when the sun comes out, a beach holiday or city break right here can be just as fun as going abroad and a great excuse to splash out on some new luggage.

Not just a place to keep your most important possessions, you probably want something lightweight but sturdy and definitely on-trend so you can travel in style.
