Traveling with kids and just one carry-on can seem like a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be! Follow these tips to make it easier:
1. Prioritize: Before packing, make a list of what items are absolute necessities and which could be left behind or replaced easily at the destination if needed. This will help you narrow down what needs to make it into your bag.
2. Invest in quality: Choose a bag that is well-made, comfortable to carry and has plenty of pockets and compartments so that everything fits snugly inside. It should also meet airline requirements for size and weight, so make sure to double-check these before traveling!
3. Pack smartly: Maximize space by rolling clothes rather than folding them, choosing lightweight fabrics like nylon over heavier items like denim or leather. Don’t forget the accessories too – a good travel scarf can double as an evening wrap or beach coverup, while sunglasses are essential for sunny days! Pack light, utilize technology, stick to one color scheme for clothing/accessories and use packing cubes for organization.
4. Keep liquids contained: To comply with standard regulations about hand luggage liquids, keep them all in containers no bigger than 3oz/100 ml each – even cosmetics like deodorant must fit in here! Once bagged up in clear plastic zip lock bags they can be stored away safely in any corner of your carry-on without taking up much room at all!
5. Know how to beat excess baggage fees: If you’re still not convinced that you can travel with just a carry-on, using digital check-in services before arriving at the airport may help you avoid these extra charges altogether – some airlines even offer special deals on digital check-ins such as discounts on flights or priority boarding perks!
By following these simple guidelines and having a streamlined packing process, you’ll find it easier than ever before to stay organized. So start planning that next trip today with just one helpful companion: your trusty carry-on bag!
