airline luggage restrictions can lead to unexpected additional costs for holidaymakers. However, packing strategically can ensure that you fit everything you need in your suitcase, without the risk of paying a fee.
According to Adam Ewart, CEO and founder of Send my bagpoints out that while rolling is a popular packaging method, there is another way that can save space and reduce the risk of clothes wrinkling.
Mr Ewart told Express.co.uk: “Rolling is a space saver and rolling in order of use makes a lot of sense.
“But if you want to save space, pack items in order and avoid creases, you can also try the bundling technique.
Mr Ewart added: “Don’t let items such as shoes take up space, put socks in shoes and make sure other items with cavities are not left empty.
“Always roll. You can even use your socks on both ends to save space and keep the rolls together.”
When traveling with the family, although it can be tempting to pack all your belongings in one bag, Mr Ewart recommends making use of the baggage allowance.
He explained: “If you are traveling with very young children, airlines will usually allow you to travel with extra items, traveling with children is difficult and you do not have to pay extra baggage fees, check what extra allowed baby bags are offered and make sure make sure you use those to the max before paying for extra pounds.
“If your child is over two years old, buy them their own seat.
“If that seat comes with a free standard carry-on bag, don’t waste it with a backpack for a small child, bring a large carry-on bag and if your child also wants a small bag it can be placed under the front seat. “
