Amazon Australia just launched a whole new travel supply shopping experience bringing over 40 local and international luggage and travel brands with more than 50,000 products to its Australian store.

The move was prompted by the staggering number of Aussies (2.3 million, according to Amazon) expected to travel abroad before the end of the year. Not to mention the rapid growth of domestic travel, which the online shopping platform said is growing 14 per cent year-on-year.

Launching on “The Travel Store” are premium luggage brands Qantas, Antler, Delsey, Victorinox, Wenger, and Samsonite; outdoor and clothing retailers The North Face, Kathmandu and Eagle Creek; travel essentials from Case Logic, Go Travel, Amazon Basics and Kipling, as well as travel accessories for the family from favourites such as Disney, Trunki and RipCurl, among others.

“Whilst there is nothing better than a good holiday and many Aussies will be planning their next adventure, travelling can be stressful, whether its packing for a large family, a long trip or a last minute business meeting,” Angela Langmann, Head of Amazon Fashion Australia said.

“At Amazon, we want to make shopping for travel essentials as seamless and easy as possible and we hope to do just that for a nation of travel fanatics by introducing The Travel Store with more than 500,000 products being added to the more than 60 million products available on Amazon.”

With over half a million products in the travel category alone, the Amazon Travel Store brings together travel essentials for the whole journey, with Kindles, print books and Audible audiobooks featuring alongside sunglasses, travel-size cosmetics, luggage tags, passport wallets and more.

For added convenience, shoppers can view travel products by the type of trip they are taking, be it a beach or adventure holiday, hiking or skiing, or city breaks.

Among the leading local and international brands, Amazon is also releasing its Amazon Basics range, which will feature a series of travel accessories, backpacks and luggage.
