With travel named as the number one activity Aussies like to spend their money on*, ALDI is launching its annual Seasoned Traveller Special Buys sale on Saturday 30th June 2018 – to help Aussies set off on their next journey without breaking the bank.

From suitcases and gadgets to travel guides and other handy accessories, this year’s Special Buys offers a number of holiday essentials to get you set for take-off.

Why we love it…

With millions taking off each year on holidays, research has shown that a huge number of Australians are overspending while on holidays**.

“We know Aussies love to travel but the cost implications can sometimes be restricting. With this in mind, we have developed our Seasoned Traveller Special Buys range to offer great value for money while making your life easier when travelling,” said Shay Stearnes, Buying Director at ALDI Australia.

Why you’ll love it…

This year, ALDI’s Seasoned Traveller Special Buys feature lightweight and durable luggage products with updated designs that reflect the latest trends.

The range includes two hard shell Spinner Suitcases, made from 100% polypropylene to make them extremely lightweight and durable, priced at $79.99 for the 76cm case and $49.99 for the 54cm carry-on size.  Travellers looking to upgrade their suitcase collection can opt for the Ultralight Suitcase Set, priced at $89.99, which includes both a large (79cm) and medium (67cm) suitcase.  These products all feature four versatile double-spinner wheels for ease of mobility when transiting, TSA approved locks for additional security and a two year warranty. There is also a Rolling Duffle Bag ($24.99) and Trolley Backpack ($39.99) available.

To compliment your new set of wheels, we have a number of essential travel accessories such as our Noise Cancelling Headphones ($39.99), useful Travel Adaptor Kit ($19.99) that works in more than 150 countries, and for ultimate comfort anywhere while on holiday, a Mini Memory Foam Pillow priced at $16.99. Keep your treasured belongings safe with our Luggage Straps or Locks ($9.99) and an Anti-Theft Bag ($19.99), and last but not least, make sure your suitcase isn’t over the weight allowance with our Digital Suitcase Scale for $9.99.

How it fits into your life…

We have designed the 2018 Seasoned Traveller Special Buys to suit the needs of everyday Aussie travellers. All products have been expertly crafted to suit any type of holiday, whether that’s a solo travel adventurer or a fun family escape.

When choosing the best luggage options for a trip, while it often comes down to personal preference, there are a few things to consider.

Lightweight bags, such as the ones in this year’s range are ideal for both carry on and check-in baggage on flights. Whether you choose a hard or soft shell suitcase, look for versatile and resilient wheels to avoid your bag tipping when being rolled from place to place. For a bag that will offer stability on most terrains, double spinner wheels are a good option. To help keep things organised while travelling, it’s useful to have segmented compartments for different items, which can make life a lot easier when on holiday.

As with all of ALDI’s Special Buys, our Seasoned Traveller products will be located in the middle aisle of your local store from Saturday 30th June, while stocks last. In the meantime, you can check out all the products on our website or in catalogue.
