Just looking into getting some proper suitcases for honeymoon, can anyone recommend some? Ideally, would like hard cased luggage, with 4 wheels. Any wollies that travel alot that could tell me a good brand?

I think that Samonite are supposed to be the very best but they'd be pricey. Another wollie recommended this site for something else and I have just ordered some sheets on it. Have a look at the suitcases - everything is vastly reduced [url:2i27ooov]http://www.overstock.com/Luggage-Bags/33/store.html[/url:2i27ooov]

Samsonite have excellent suitcases, MrsSG, they have ones that are hard-cased, 4-wheels and have a lock on them that is suitable for a spot check at US immigration (so there!!) They have an outlet in Kildare Village, thats where we've got ours recently! :wv

Checked out the Kildare Village website, but it just direct you to the Samsonite homepage so it's hard to know what sort of discount the outlet offers.

We paid about €150 for a large suitcase, DH is a divil for negotiating with staff in Kildare Village too, he's always managed to knock a few € off everything he buys, if you hit KV at the right time, you can get a good bargain HTH :wv

We got two large Samsonite cases last year in the shop in Kildare Village. They were either €100 or €120 each. Ours have four wheels, but they're not hard cases.
