A History of Innovation with Travelpro®

Over thirty years ago, a professional pilot created the first upright rolling luggage for himself and his fellow crew members. This was the original Rollaboard® - the premier product of Travelpro® Luggage.

With his invention, the travel industry was transformed forever.

At Travelpro®, innovation continues to be a driving force behind every product we develop, and we will always explore ways to enhance the travel experience.

Innovation is the heart of what we do
