Worry Less and Travel On With the #ATCare Antimicrobial Travel Collection

Research carried out by AQUAINT uncovered some disturbing truths about air travel. The study found that luggage can come into contact with up to 80 million bacteria before it's even set down in a hotel room. This is largely due to the number of people and places it comes into contact with throughout each journey - an average of two cab drivers, a member of the airline crew, and two baggage handlers, to name but a few. With the hands of each person potentially carrying up to 10 million bacteria at any one time, it's not surprising that luggage can quickly become a microbial hotspot.

American Tourister® has partnered with Microban International to launch the #ATCare Antimicrobial Travel Collection. This exclusive travel range features lasting product protection against the growth of bacteria and mould, helping to address traveller concerns about the invisible enemies harbouring on their belongings. Treated items currently include zippered mask pouch (interior liner only) and luggage cover (both pictured below).

How Does Microban® Technology Work to Protect American Tourister® Travel Accessories?

Microban® antimicrobial technology is applied to the fabric of each travel product during manufacture. It works by penetrating the cell membrane of contaminating microbes, meaning they cannot grow or reproduce on the treated surface and subsequently die. The result is a travel accessory that stays hygienically cleaner and fresher in-between cleans, allowing travellers to rest easy and focus on the journey ahead.
