Whether you’re packing for a weekend city break or a two week beach holiday, these are some of the tips you’ll ever need for stress-free packing.
Always start with a packing list
This is such a ‘mom’ tip, but there’s a reason why moms are always right. Especially in the stressful few days before a trip, it’s all too easy to forget items you need.
Know your limits
Baggage allowance varies from airline to airline. Make sure you’re aware of your limits before you reach the airport. Some carriers will allow you to check in two bags, but not all, and the weight allowance can vary. Make sure you understand the hand luggage allowance and avoid costly charges at the gate.
Roll and vacuum pack
To save space and stop creasing, roll your clothes instead of folding them, then place them in vacuum compression bags. To use these bags, put your clothes in, seal the bag, then squeeze the air out. This will leave you with lots more space in your suitcase and will prevent creases.
