American Tourister, part of the Samsonite International S.A., will together with the Erasmus Student Network offer Erasmus students access to quality, travel-inspiring luggage and suitcase solutions.

With student mobility steadily increasing, young people find themselves today frequently in need of travelling solutions such as transportation, accommodation, insurance, and more. American Tourister and the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) have decided to cooperate to assist students with one of these solutions: the safe, comfortable and easy transportation of personal belongings – luggage!

Most of us having done an exchange period abroad know the challenges that student will for certain encounter: everything from finding accommodation to surviving language barriers." said Stefan Jahnke, President of ESN. "It is ESN’s core goal to assist students and facilitate this international process in any way we can. I am therefore extremely happy about our cooperation with American Tourister, through which we will be able to assist international students even further.
