Buying Rimowa and Samsonite from Germany, Good Idea?
I am planning a big trip to Europe in Oct for the first time and one of the things that I wanted to buy is a luggage.
Some of the key cities that I will be visiting and will probably be doing some shoppings are Paris, Munich, Prague, Florence, Barcelona (not sure if this city is good for shopping at all).
Depends on how much cheaper it is, I want to buy a large suitcase 75-82cm and a 55cm carry on.
I would appreciate if any of you can shed some lights on the following questions:
1) Samsonite are usually quite heavily discounted in Australia ie up to 50% off. Is it still worth while to wait and buy in Europe?
2) If it is, how much cheaper am I looking if I buy in Europe?
3) Depend on the price, I may want to buy a Rimowa carry on luggage. How much discount can I generally get from the retailer in Europe comparing to the Germany official RRP?
4) Within the cities that I will be visiting, where can I get them cheapest and from which retailer?
Lots of questions and any info will be appreciated!!
