American Tourister Brand Luggage Sets Review
American Touristerer Luggage Repair
Should your luggage set need to be repaired, it needs to be done at one of the company’s Authorized Repair Centers. To locate one of these centers, call 1-800-262-8282 or log on to the American Touristerer website (www.americantourister.com) where you can then use their repair center locater system.
Alternatively, you can return the product to one of Samsonite’s company stores who will send it to the repair centre for a small shipping fee. At the repair centre, they will determine if the product is repairable under warranty or not (if it’s not they will contact you to discuss whether you want it repaired at your own expense or not).
The Forester and Tribute Collections
Owned by luggage giant Samsonite, American Touristerer luggage is marketed as being quality luggage at a moderate price. Acquired by Samsonite back in 1993, this brand is a cheaper option for people who are looking for the quality that the parent company is renowned for, but at an affordable price.
Being a huge company, American Touristerer is able to offer a wide range of luggage to suit all the tastes of travelers worldwide. From traditional, serious black to bright colors through to multi-toned luggage, everyone has been catered for. This luggage brand is best suited to moderate use i.e. occasional business trips combined with vacation use.
For business trips, the Prelude and Tribute collections are recommended, as they have a more serious tone to them. Whereas the Forester II and III sets are more relaxed collections and are great for vacation use where you will be staying in hotels. The E.volve series is geared towards a younger market with features such as specially designed pockets to hold an MP3/CD player. The two Kenya series are again more casual collections, which suit a more relaxed setting. For the supposedly style conscious, there is the Ocean Drive collection – it’s one of those designs which is supposed to be funky – but in saying that this is one design that you’ll either love or hate. Overnight or sports travel is the key to the Gear 4 series. These duffel bags are available in a variety of sizes, with or without wheels.
To go with any American Touristerer luggage set, there is a wide range of travel accessories that are also produced by this company. Irons, locks, pillows, luggage tags and much more feature in this line of products.
