Why you need an extended warranty for your suitcases

Traveling can be a stressful experience, especially when it comes to packing your bags and making sure everything arrives at your destination in one piece. Suitcases are an essential part of any travel experience, and it's essential to have one that's durable, reliable, and protects your belongings. You might love the look of a vintage suitcase, but you’re better off saving that for more delicate travels, or even just for show.

While most suitcases come with a manufacturer's warranty, it's often limited in both coverage period and scope. In some cases, the warranty may only cover defects in materials or workmanship, and may not cover damage caused by normal wear and tear or accidental incidents. This is where an extended warranty comes in.

Why you need an extended warranty on your suitcases

Protect against accidental damage

Traveling is one of the most unpredictable things you can do, and accidents can happen that are out of your control. An extended warranty can provide coverage for damage caused by unexpected incidents, such as a broken handle, a cracked wheel, or a torn zipper.

Even an aluminum suitcase can wind up damaged. You never know who is handling your luggage, so it’s always beneficial to know you’re covered.

Extend the manufacturer's warranty

An extended warranty extends the manufacturer's warranty and provides additional protection beyond the original coverage period. This means you're protected for a longer period of time, giving you peace of mind and reducing the risk of having to pay for repairs or replacements out of pocket.

Although a brand like TJ Maxx suitcases are great if you want high-end models without the price tag, you likely won’t be entitled to the same type of warranty as you would if you bought direct from the manufacturer, which is where an extended warranty would come in handy.

Cover normal wear and tear

Normal wear and tear is a natural part of any product's life cycle, and it's no different with suitcases. An extended warranty can provide coverage for normal wear and tear, such as scuffs, scratches, and rips, keeping your suitcase in great condition for longer.

Even a small suitcase that you mainly use as a carry-on can benefit from extra protection—you never know when that overhead compartment is going to be too packed, and suddenly your bag is being carried off to another storage area by strangers.

Provide cost savings

Replacing a suitcase can be expensive, especially if you have to do it frequently. An extended warranty can help you save by covering the cost of repairs or replacements, so you don't have to worry about the cost of fixing or replacing your suitcase. Even if you aren’t using a Louis Vuitton suitcase, average brands can still be expensive to repair and/or replace.

Peace of mind

Traveling can be stressful, and the last thing you want to worry about is the condition of your suitcase. An extended warranty can provide peace of mind by giving you the assurance that your suitcase is protected against any unexpected incidents or damage, allowing you to focus on the more important things, like your next adventure.
