These are all incredibly good tips. Security is one of the most important issues for me when traveling, so I have to admit I loved these bags. I definitely need one. One tip I haven’t seen here is to make copies of all your relevant documents (like passport, visa, etc.). If worst case scenario you have your stuff stolen, you’ll have copies that will help you get back on your feet.

how to travel with designer bags


Anyone who has traveled a fair amount knows the value of a good tote. The workhorse of the travel bag ensemble, it’s the perfect carry-all for your essentials. You can toss everything in one roomy bag (we’re talking wallet, passport, phone, headphones, tablet, book, scarf, sweater, toiletry bag, water bottle, snacks — don’t forget the snacks!, and even a travel pillow), grab it, and go.
Ok, so immediately after ordering my cinch belt, I broke down and spent $$s on this gorgeous travel bag and even went for broke that I’d love it w/no return option by adding monogram! Even better, it shipped ONE DAY AFTER I ORDERED IT! So I received it today along with my cinch belt and I’m in awe! From the detailed packaging and extras (which I won’t disclose here as it’s nice to be surprised!) to the actual item, all was absolutely outstanding and top-notch. This bag will definitely be used for years to come, will continue to look and wear even better and better, and will become a treasured item to be given to a treasured family member. I absolutely love it. In short, stop reading. and start ordering.
And then there’s the Hong Kong–based Hellolulu, which has two bags that fit the bill. First, the Corbin, which is a thin, square, cross-body that’ll still fit a water bottle and all the necessities. The second is the Kasen, which is a bit bigger and more in the vein of the bum packs and waist packs that have become popular once again. Both are well-designed and built to last.
Get a travel credit card with a limit on it. If it does get lost or stolen, it will prevent a lavish spending spree. Also carry a cc that doesn’t have charge fees associated with use, some cards will charge 3-5% per use. If two of you are travelling together, each person should have a different credit card in the event one gets lost/stolen and you need to cancel it, the other person has a different one for expenses. Do not travel with items you never want to loose, leave them at home.
