When travelling for work, rolling around a pricey - yet functional - trolley can alleviate some of the stress that comes with flying.

Here are five high-flyers and their favourite bags that go the extra mile.

"My all-time favourite luggage brand is Louis Vuitton and no one can beat it. But the only thing is that when you travel internationally, the airports ruin your bags. So when I'm carrying hand luggage, it's always LV and when I am checking in my luggage, it's always Victorinox because checked in bags are thrown around. They break, tear, everything."

Schauna Chauhan

CEO, Parle Agro


"I don't have a specific luggage brand that I favour. I look for luggage where the suitcase is not very heavy because when you are carrying a lot of stuff, the weight of the suitcase shouldn't also be accounted for. I also look for luggage that has good, sturdy wheels because sometimes when you are pulling the bags, those can get damaged. I like bags with a lot of compartments. I'm practical about my luggage. It shouldn't be a headache when I'm travelling."

Thomas Archer Bata

CMO, Bata Group


"I am actually pretty terrible when it comes to keeping my luggage - I tend to kill the bags (laughs). I have a Samsonite at the moment, but, frankly, I think it's time I got a new one. I always like clothing and shoes, but luggage has always been a utility item for me. However, for my girlfriend it's the opposite. She has a nice Rimowa bag - her favourite. I also have a Brooks Brothers leather bag that's made in England that I love carrying around. I have three in different colours."

Aneesa Dhody Mehta

MD, Creative Co


"I use Hartmann luggage bags while on the go. Funny story about where I picked them up from - borrowed from my in-laws, never to be returned (laughs). I'm very bad with caring for my bags. I use them when I travel and when I'm done, they are stored away till the next trip comes around. I only end up servicing them when the wheels are broken or when the problem areas can't be ignored anymore."

Bibhu Mohapatra

Fashion designer


"I have a Louis Vuitton luggage set, but I rarely use them. I think they will be passed on to my niece and nephews as vintage pieces. They're too showy to be used while travelling as a result of which, I end up using my Samsonite luggage most of the time.".
