As a unit they represent the ambitious travellers of today’s generation who are always on the hunt for travel luggage/ necessities that truly reflect their personalities. The duo will certainly help strengthen the brand as contemporary, fashionable, reliable and everyone’s first choice for holiday travel. With this endorsement, we are confident that we will sharply position the brand as the country’s best and leading 'holiday' luggage brand. If it’s Holiday it has to be VIP”.
