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. Alternatively, you could go really economical and be like Kim’s daughter North West; she was recently seen clinging to her favorite suitcase decorated with a picture of — what else? — Disney’s Frozen.

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. This family travels commercial so infrequently, however, that in 2013, Kim and Kanye inadvertently caused a security breach when they accepted VIP treatment from commercial flight gate agents who were shepherding them past check points. Avoid embarrassing situations like this one by chartering your own plane, starting at around $6,000 per hour.

What if you want to bring your pet on vacation with you? The Kardashians have tons of pets, mainly (but not limited to) cats and dogs. Your pet can fly with you on certain commercial flights, with large pets in the cargo hold and very small ones in your carryon. Virgin America airlines even offer water bottles and pet hoodies for your companion.
