With the weather heating up, and the tantalising promise of sun-kissed beaches and new adventures just over the horizon, it’s time to turn away from your hot water bottle and electric blanket and start planning your next trip.

To help you get the most out of your getaway, we have introduced “The Travel Store”, bringing over 40 local and international luggage and travel brands and more than 500,000 travel products to our store.

With recent research revealing Aussies are increasing the number of both their international and domestic jaunts, our Travel Store will simplify preparation for busy jet-setters. Over 2.3 million Australians are expected to travel abroad before the end of the year,[1] and domestic travel is growing by 14 per cent year-on-year as Aussies choose to holiday in their own backyard.[2] Whether you’re off on a family holiday, business trip, or globe trotting to an exotic, far-flung location, our Travel Store has curated lists of all your essential travel items housed in one location.

The store features premium luggage brands like Qantas, Antler, Delsey, Victorinox, Wenger, and Samsonite; outdoor and clothing retailers The North Face, Kathmandu, and Eagle Creek; travel essentials from Case Logic, Go Travel, Amazon Basics, and Kipling; as well as travel accessories for the whole family from favourites such as Disney, Trunki, and RipCurl.

With over half a million products in the travel category alone, the Amazon Travel Store brings together travel essentials for the whole journey, with Kindles, print books and Audible audio books featured alongside sunglasses, travel-size cosmetics, luggage tags, passport wallets, and more. For added convenience, Aussies can view travel products by the type of trip they’re taking, be it a beach or adventure holiday, hiking, skiing, or city breaks. Among the leading local and international brands, we are also releasing our Amazon Basics range, which will feature a series of travel accessories, backpacks, and luggage.

The launch of luggage is in addition to the 25 categories already available on Amazon Australia. By giving Aussie customers access to a total of over 60 million products, we have you covered for the best summer ever, whether you’re journeying to the ends of the earth or just relaxing up the coast.
