While buying individual suitcases certainly has its benefits, there's something to be said for having a full luggage set on hand — especially if you're embarking on a long trip or traveling with others. In order to get the best bang for your buck, we've sorted out the best cheap luggage sets, so you can pack all of your necessities into a few matching bags of varying sizes and shapes.
Whether you're looking for a whole set to use just on your own, or you're in need of one suitable for a family vacation, traveling with a full luggage set makes getting from point A to point B that much smoother. Plus, it's super easy to spot your luggage at the baggage claim when it all looks the same.
But remember, while nearly every set will come with a smaller size that can easily be carried-on to a flight, the remaining pieces of the set can vary greatly in size. Some will come with wheels while others will be over-the-shoulder duffels.
From matching sets of two — a duffel and a roller — to full five-piece luggage sets, there's something on this list for every type of traveler. And every one of these bags have received favorable reviews from satisfied Amazon customers. Below, you'll find hardside rollers, soft spinners, duffels, small carry-ons, and more — all made from durable material and TSA-approved. And the best part? You'll be packing on a serious budget, with prices as low as $32.
1. A Luggage Set Perfect For Long-Term And Family Travel
Perfect for long-term travel, a big move, or hitting the road with your family, this five-piece luggage set has two rollers with smooth inline skate wheels and and easy-to-maneuver locking handle system. The remaining three bags make great carry-ons, and leave plenty of space for all of your travel necessities. Choose from red, navy, and black.
Samsonite has a long history of producing durable, long-lasting suitcases. This set is no different. The exterior is made of strong polyester that can hold up to the wear and tear of repeated travel, and tough aluminum hardware won’t snag or break if you have to zip your bag in a hurry. Best of all, this set of five can nestle inside each other. That makes it easy to store this set of five within itself, and quickly slide it underneath a bed, or roll it into the back of a closet.
2. A Lightweight Two-Piece Spinner Set In Tons Of Cute Colors
If you don't need a full set of luggage, this two-piece set of hardshell rollers is a great option. Made of a lightweight and protective material called ABS, both suitcases feature telescoping handles and 360-degree rotating spinner wheels for ultimate ease when it comes to maneuvering through the airport. Plus, it's available in over 15 colors, in cute, two-tone combinations.
This set of two comes in two heights, 28 and 20 inches tall, both 17 inches wide, and 12 inches deep. While the larger size when fully packed can sometimes be too large for the weight limit, the smaller size is perfect for the overhead bin on a short flight. Fans of this set rave that the wheels are easy to spin, and that the bright colors make this set super easy to spot in a baggage carousel.
3. A Simplistic And Versatile Carry-On And Duffel Set
Complete with one soft expandable roller suitcase and one soft duffel, this highly-rated two-piece set is made of durable polyester and available in three different colors ('salmon,' 'navy,' and 'forest'). The best part? The price can't get much better at under $35, and both pieces are FAA carry-on-size approved.
The roller suitcase has two inline wheels, and handles on both the side and bottom of the suitcase that make it easy to snag off a baggage carousel. The larger-sized rolling luggage measures 21 inches in height, whereas the horizontal duffel is 17 inches long. Within the rolling suitcase, there is a mesh side pocket perfect for separating dirty or wet clothing while you travel.
4. A Three-Piece Luggage Set For The Couple Who Loves to Travel
With an average Amazon rating of four stars, this three-piece set features two rolling suitcases and one soft carry-on. Each roller piece has two protected, durable wheels, and the medium suitcase is carry-on sized. The small bag fits on top of the medium roller luggage, making it super easy to maneuver through a busy airport. Besides red, this set also comes in bright purple and neutral black.
The corners of all three suitcases are reinforced to prevent wear and tear where you most often see it on suitcases. That also means this set will last longer than your previous one, as it won’t be susceptible to damage from baggage handlers, or airplane or train-ride turbulence. They each have an exterior pocket perfect for storing anything you might need easily accessible while you travel: passports, driver’s licenses, or plane or train tickets.
5. A Four-Piece Set For The Traveler Who Loves Everything On Wheels
For anyone who loves to roll with luggage on wheels, this four-piece set is ideal because three of the four suitcases are rollers. Each one is expandable and fully lined, and they come in seven diverse colors and patterns, including camouflage. Amazon reviewers rave about the heavy-duty material and the convenience of having all travel necessities in one matching set. Plus, you simply can't beat the price.
One fan raves about how durable these suitcases are: “Provides you with a lot of room for your clothes and other items as well as anything you want to bring back! It protected my glass souvenirs very well!”
6. The Best Of Both Worlds On A Budget
Olympia's high-quality two-piece luggage set features one expandable roller and one soft carry-on that slings easily over a shoulder. This set provides ample room for one person to pack enough clothing for a week to 10 days, and comes in five different color and pattern options.
At just $40 for a set of two, this suitcase duo is a steal. One fan raves, “Not only is this luggage cute it's durable and very easy to iden(ti)fy mine from the rest when looking for it at baggage claim at the airport.”
