There are approximately 10,000 good reasons why buying a protective suitcase cover would be a swell idea (give or take). One is to protect your luggage from the inevitable bumps and scratches that happen during traveling — from surrendering your suitcase to a series of trolleys and baggage handlers to shoving your carry-on into a crowded overhead bin. Another reason? You'll easily spot your luggage with its unique suitcase cover on in a sea of similar yet-to-be-claimed bags on the carousel. And the third reason is to keep your suitcase from accumulating dust while in storage between trips. Whatever your reason may be, we've gathered up the very best suitcase cover protectors worth buying, below.

When you're adding to cart, be sure to pay attention to dimensions so the cover is a snug fit for your bag. You'll find patternless covers that are perfect for the minimalist, crazily designed covers for the maximalist (or traveler who just wants to easily recognize their bag from a distance), and even a clear, waterproof cover for those who just care about the protection. The best part is, all of the picks below are under $20 each, so you won't have to break the bank to shield your luggage during its next bumpy journey.
