What Buyers Didn't Like About the Travelhouse Hard shell

Even though the number of low ratings was 7%, we always like to have a look at those. When we did we found that their complaints were about the quality of the case. 

A few said it was plastic and flimsy, and a couple said the key for the lock was missing. One or two buyers also said that the colour was not what they thought it would be. Some of those reviews are a tad suspect as about 6 of them all had the same headline.

What Buyers Liked About the Travelhouse Hard shell

Overall the reviews are excellent, and the suitcase has attracted an average 4.4 out of 5 stars which is an excellent rating by any standards.

At an average retail price of around £40, this case also seems good value for money. Many sellers will sell at a cheaper price than this RRP, so be on the look out for those type of bargains.
