What Type Of Traveller Are You? (And How To Pack Accordingly)

Today’s travel scene is overflowing with possibilities so settling on the getaway that is right for you – be it beach, city, ski, or countryside escape – can take time.

Once you’ve decided on a destination, it’s time to choose the right travel companion. Whether you’re heading to sunnier climes, or flying somewhere snow-capped, discover RIMOWA’s range of expert travel pieces tailor-made to any type of trip.

In partnership with RIMOWA


Travel Type: Beach

Jet off somewhere sunny with the tropic-inspired RIMOWA Essential Collection in Mango. Offering optimum capacity, the Essential Trunk Plus, is a polycarbonate hard-shell case that accommodates journeys of two weeks or more. That means ample space for wide-brim hats, sun cream, swimsuits, and infinite amounts of linen. Complete the look with its cabin-sized counterpart, a lightweight and durable carry-on case that’s ideal for smaller pieces. While lounging at the beach, add the RIMOWA Never Still Round Mini Pouch to your ensemble, either by attaching to your belt loops or fastening to a bag.


Travel Type: City

Touch down in your city of choice with the Essential Lite, RIMOWA’s lightest suitcase ever. Designed to provide room for up to 10 days of travel, the RIMOWA Essential Lite Check-In L is crafted from durable grooved polycarbonate. Once you’ve mapped out the trendiest neighbourhoods to explore, hit the pavement with the RIMOWA Never Still Backpack. Boasting a large double zipped compartment and an internal 13-inch laptop-sized pocket, there’s ample room for tech and photography equipment to document your travels. If you prefer something smaller, daily essentials fit in the RIMOWA Never Still Phone Bag, which can be worn across the body and comes with an adjustable strap.


Travel Type: Ski

Alpine adventures await in the scenic ski resorts of Chamonix, Verbier, and co. While ski packing lists are known for being extensive – from puffers and cashmere socks, to thermals and ski boots – RIMOWA’s Original Trunk in XL can accommodate it all with ease. On the pistes, invest in practical yet polished pieces. RIMOWA’s Pilot Foldable Sunglasses feature black polarised lenses, while the RIMOWA Never Still Rectangular Mini Pouch is the perfect size to store for loose change, your chalet keys, and a sun-protection stick.


Travel Type: Countryside

A few hours from London will find you in bucolic surrounds. Our luggage of choice for countryside escapes: the RIMOWA Classic Cabin, which effortlessly combines luxury with functionality and is roomy enough to accommodate cosy knits, tweed jackets, and olive-hued wellington boots. Visiting an historic house while away? Sling the RIMOWA Never Still Backpack over your shoulder to accommodate your essentials. If country hikes are more appealing, grab the RIMOWA Personal Sling Clutch, a versatile bag that can be worn multiple ways across the body so that you’re unencumbered on your walk.
