Your Suitcase Personality

Your packing style says a lot about who you are as a person.

Over-Packer

This packer’s mind is full of what-ifs: what if I go horseriding? What if we go out to fancy dinners eight nights in a row? What if I need a raincoat? Over-packers want options. Even when they think they’ve weeded out every last unnecessary item, they still have to sit on their bag to zip it up.

Carry-On Connoisseur

Checked bags (and their fees) are for the birds – that’s the carry-on connoisseur’s mantra. For this breed, it’s all about planning ahead. Organised, always practical, and very minimalist, they make the most of a small amount of mix-and-match, versatile clothing.

Hacker Packer

This savvy traveller seeks out and uses every trick in the book: plastic wrap over bottles so they won’t leak, socks and underwear stuffed inside shoes, necklaces strung through straws to avoid tangles.

11th-Hour Packer

No organised piles or itemised lists here. This packer is a whirlwind, running around at, well, the 11th hour, throwing almost anything and everything into a suitcase. The end result could be wonderful or utterly disastrous.

Intelligent Luggage

Gone are the days when suitcases just stored your belongings. At the CES Innovation awards in January 2015, Delsey showcased a new range of smart cases called Pluggage. Apart from being able to store your clothes, the cases have an inbuilt phone charger, fingerprint ID security system, auto-weight feature and an app that sends you a notification when your luggage is on the plane.
