Now you have six good choices for a travel tote. There are others that might be suitable.

Remember that you might need a bag that fits over your luggage handles, sometimes called a “trolley bag.” Or you might need a tote that is lightweight and suitable to take to the beach or gym.

A good travel tote will hold up to wear and is sturdy. Zippers should be strong, as a broken zipper on a bag could cause loss of valuables or important papers.

Some people want their bag to be waterproof; this will depend on where you are traveling – the climate and the weather.

Some totes have compartments for shoes, and others are made for your little furry friend.

There are bags that might seem small when first unpacked; however, once they are filled with your items, you might find them very roomy.

Choose the best travel tote, from our suggestions, that works for your needs. And have a great trip!
