Pianeta Ibiza 100% ABS Trolley Suitcase Review

As you can see from the image, this is a very brightly coloured case. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but some people will love the vibrant colour combination. The wheels are great for easy movement, it is expandable, has a telescopic handle and also a 3  digit combination lock.

How Buyers Rate the Pianeta Ibiza

When spending any money, it is always worth checking the buyer reviews. I like to read and summarise those as it gives me a sense if it is the right product for me. After all these people have bought the product, used it and then taken the time to leave a review.

They use a 5 star rating system with 5 being the highest and best rating, and 1 being the lowest rating. I have summarised these by percentage below.​

72 %
5 STARS
7 %
4 STARS
0 %
3 STARS
0 %
2 STARS
21 %
1 STAR

As you can see just over 7 out of 10 people gave this suitcase the full 5 star treatment. 78% rated it 4 stars or higher. The number of poor ratings is simply far too high for our liking. We will have a look as to why that is the case down below. Normally if the number of poor reviews is low that is not too concerning.  However at over 20% it certainly warrants more investigation.

What Buyers Didn't Like About the ​Pianeta Suitcase

The number of low ratings was very high at 21%, I took a much closer look at those. When I did I found that their complaints were about the state of the case when it arrived. 2 buyers said that it had been poorly packed and slightly damaged. One other buyer said the zip didn't work.

The reason that the percentage looks high is that there are only 15 reviews about this case, and three 1 star reviews. That actually skews the figures. Overall the case gets good reviews aside from 3 unhappy buyers.

What Buyers Liked About the Pianeta Suitcase

Overall the reviews were good and this attracted an average 4.1 out of 5 stars which is a nice solid and consistent rating.

Buyers liked the fact that this could be used as a good sized cabin bag. That was because it was both light and sturdy.

The majority of people who bought those were female, and those who wanted a real "girly type" bag. This certainly ticks that box. 

Buyers also said that the interior was really nice and it had plenty of room. Even the large one has room, and the XL has even more if you need to have more clothes on holidays.

Pianeta Ibiza ABS Specification

Pianeta Ibiza side view

Below we take a look at the more specific details of this type of case. It is available in 2 sizes:

  • Large - 25 inches and holds 60 litres​ - costs around £36
  • XL - 28 inches and holds 95 litres​ - costs around £45

It is made from a tough ABS material. That means the case will be tough, hard wearing and easy to clean. One of the best features of this case, is that it is expandable. There may be the odd time, when you need to squeeze in something extra when going on holiday.

If that is the case, by opening up a zip, the width and capacity of the suitcase can be increased by up to 15%. Pretty handy when you need it.

It has a wheel in each of the four corners and that means it can be easily moved and manoeuvred around the airport and hotels. It also has a telescopic handle when you want to wheel it along, and this handle then slips back inside the case, when not being used.

If all of the above were not enough, it also has a very important combination lock. This means that you can pick three digits of your choice, and safely lock your case up.

What Buyers Say About the Pianeta Ibiza ABS Trolley Suitcase

This is one I think for the younger generation and more aimed at young women, rather than at men. Primarily that is down to the orange and red colours. In effect the red colour is actually more like a pink colour. Overall buyers rate it highly enough and it remains a popular suitcase choice.
