First Off: Let’s Talk Luggage.

If you want to travel Kardashian style, you’re going to need some stylish luggage — and lots of it. You could buy your set from the Kardashian Kollection, a line of travel bags, wallets and accessories that the family has produced, but let’s be honest: you’re going to need fancier goods than that. After all, these people are usually seen strolling through the airport with stacks of Louis Vuitton suitcases.

Flying First Class or Private Jet?

The Kardashians usually use a private jet to get around, but occasionally they will stoop to flying with the peons in first class.

Avoid embarrassing situations like this one by chartering your own plane, starting at around $6,000 per hour.

Virgin America airlines even offer water bottles and pet hoodies for your companion.
