If you haven’t been traveling in a couple of years now is a good time to take stock of your luggage. Is it in good shape? Do you have the right size carry-on bag for your next trip? And if you’re planning a longer adventure – do you have a sturdy check-through bag that can stand-up to the rigors of today’s travel? Now – more than ever – it’s vital to be ready to go on that trip of a lifetime – with the right luggage.
Luggage technology – as with everything – changes every few years. Some great new tech features that make travel and packing easier include: 4 wheel spinners to make long airport terminals a breeze and lighter more durable luggage materials to help save money on excess baggage fees. In addition, improved gusseted front compartments provide hassle-free access to items like electronics and jackets and outside battery pockets keep charging your phone while waiting at the airport – all features designed to make travel a lot smoother.

And… if after checking out your bags you find it’s time to replace your rolling luggage, there’s no better time. Instead of tossing your bag away, consider donating it to a great cause: Briggs and Riley’s A Case for Giving. You will save money on a new bag and your old bag goes to a good cause: children in need.
Now through August 31st, you can donate your gently used rolling suitcases to ‘A Case for Giving’ luggage trade-in event at any AAA OR/ID Service center. Donations can be rolling bags of any size, from any brand, as long as they are in working condition. As a thank you, Briggs and Riley will give you a $100 credit toward a new Briggs and Riley rolling bag (if donating a used Briggs and Riley rolling bag), or a $50 credit (if donating a rolling bag from another brand). And Briggs and Riley bags are backed by their ‘Simple as That’ Lifetime Guarantee.
Stock is limited – please contact your local AAA Service Center for availability AAA.COM/locations
