Luggage tags

A good luggage tag should be durable, simple to use, and discreet. Ultimately, a tag should allow someone to get your luggage back to you quickly and easily, and it should withstand the wear and tear of being thrown onto conveyor belts time and again.

Almost everyone travels at some point, and with so many suitcases and travel bags looking the same, people are often on the lookout for a good quality luggage tag that helps them identify their bags in a busy airport, train station or bus station.

Promotional Luggage Tags are a great marketing opportunity for many businesses – from travel supply companies through to coffee shops and apparel designers. They are also a great promotional product if your staff travel a lot; give a branded luggage tag to your staff members and they will be carrying your brand with them wherever they go.

We have a large range of Luggage Tags, perfect for everything from a laptop bag through to a large suitcase, in a range of materials and designs. Our Elite Aluminium Luggage Tags are great for those who travel a lot; the high quality stainless steel faster with brass screw make these tags almost indestructible making them perfect for going from plane to plane or from plane to train.

Our Shiny PVC Self-Locking Luggage Tags are great if you are travelling with a sports team or school group. These bright luggage tags will ensure you won’t misplace any bags, and the self-locking aspect ensures any children travelling with you won’t be able to easily un-tag their bag.

While luggage tags are a promotional product that isn’t often used, there are many companies out there who are in the travel game who have latched onto the great branding options that luggage tags bring. Whether you are in the travel business or in the apparel business making and marketing clothing for travel, a promotional luggage tag is a great addition to your current marketing products.


Clothing is an important part of travel gear. There is only so much space for clothes in a persons luggage so it is import to take the right things. We often don’t think about apparel as promotional items other than the general promotional T-shirts that might get sold at festivals and events, but there is a wide range of promotional apparel options that will help spread your branding and message and it starts with your staff members.

Your customers are your best form of marketing, so getting them into custom branded apparel helps keep the image you work for and provides a modest form of marketing – a logo on a business shirt or on workwear is often the first thing that catches the eye.

Travel apparel options available include:

  • Bathrobes
  • Business Shirts
  • Jackets
  • Hoodies
  • Ponchos
  • Singlets
  • T-shirts
  • Vests

But what about for clothing for business travel? For your staff you want a shirt that will provide ease of movement such as our business shirts or polos, and for your customers, our promotional bathrobes are a popular choice. So when you think of the The Best Gear for Travel then clothing should be at the top of your list.

A good pair of travel flip-flops should be lightweight, cheap, and flat. That way they’re easy to take wherever and it won’t matter if you lose them. We have a great choice which can be custom branded with your logo. These high-density PVC classics are world-renowned for their durability, affordability, and reliable traction, even when wet. While other flip flops can get squeaky when wet, these stay mostly silent, which is why they’re so popular in beach towns all over the world.

Face Masks

With travel both domestic and international face masks have become a staple item.

Airlines have cottoned onto to this and are providing branded re-usable masks. Others are also seeing the benefit in providing an inexpensive item which customers will embrace and use time and again.

The “best” cloth face mask is the one you’ll wear and not have to fuss with. Based on our research and testing, however, we do have a few recommendations for adjustable masks that we think will cover most faces comfortably and work well when worn properly. To help slow the spread of the coronavirus, any mask is better than no mask. So whilst a surgical mask or KN95 mask provides the best protect a cloth mask offers protection especially if it has a built in filter. Something like our 3-ply face mask should do the trick. The full colour branding option makes it even better.

Toiletry Bags

When your are on the road there are a lot of toiletry supplies that you need if you want to stay looking clean and fresh.

Airlines use them in business class and first class, and many more corporations are using them too. Even people who travel frequently and are given personal travel toiletry bags use them for gifts if they already have some from previous travels. So as you can see they are a great corporate travel gift if there ever way one.
