Tips on Reducing Luggage Weight

1) Upgrade your luggage. There is a lot of luggage on the market that was specifically designed to be light. You can often find full size bags for around 10 pounds.

1) Upgrade your luggage. There is a lot of luggage on the market that was specifically designed to be light. You can often find full size bags for around 10 pounds. If you go with a smaller bag, you can lighten the weight even more.

2) Choose outfits wisely. Bring clothes that are neutral, lightweight, breathable, and versatile. Also select clothing that is easy to wash and dry so you can clean your clothes while you're on the road. Having clothes that match with each other is also important. The more you can mix and match your clothes, the fewer items you'll need to bring.

3) Buy toiletries at your destination. There is no sense lugging around toilets if you can buy them for cheap at your destination. Do some research in advance and find out what items are cheap to get, and then leave those at home without you need them on your trip. Keep in mind that many hotels offer free toiletries so you might be able to skip the purchase alike.

4) Use small bottles. If you can not wait until your arrival to buy your toiletries, use small bottles to transport them. The cheapest way is to take liquids from your full size bottles and put them in smaller containers. This way you do not pay the “travel size” premium for buying those miniature disposable bottles.

5) Wear your heaviest items. To take a huge chunk of weight out of your luggage, wear your heviest items with you on the plane. You might look a little goofy in a winter coat and hiking boots on your way to somewhere tropical, but if it keeps your checked luggage light, it might be worth the hassle.

6) Make use of your carry-on item. Some items are just too heavy or fragile to put in your checked luggage. The perfect place for the items is in your carry-on bag.

7) Choose your personal item wisely. Most airlines allow you to have both a carry-on bag and a personal item. A purse or laptop case qualify as a personal item, which gives you additional room. Instead of bringing a small purse, use a larger tote and put your purse inside it. There are also many laptop cases that include extra storage.

8) Use packing cubes. Packing cubes help you separate and organize your luggage. While this alone does not help you reduce the weight of your bag, it can help you identify unneeded items.

9) Share with your company. If you're traveling with someone else, coordinate in advance so you do not duplicate items. You might be able to get by without bringing multiples of certain things. Instead, share an electrical converter, bottle of shampoo, maps, books, or magazines.

10) Learn about your destination. Some of your “must-have” travel items might not be necessary where you are going. Do some advance research and see if you really need to bring them. You might be able to ditch the umbrella, spring coat, or hiking gear. Pack to match your itinerary.

Airplanes and Airports – Delights and Frights

How do you feel when you see an airplane fly over head? I immediately think 'Ah when my next next holiday I can not wait to be going on a plane again!' Yesterday on the way home from a weekend break my boyfriend and I were dropped at Heathrow airport by friends traveling further on…

How do you feel when you see an airplane fly over head? I immediately think 'Ah when my next next holiday I can not wait to be going on a plane again!' Yesterday on the way home from a weekend break my boyfriend and I were dropped at Heathrow airport by friends traveling further on to Cambridge – we were to get the tube in to London. Driving up to the drop off zone, going in to Departures just to use the loo, we were both overcome with the possibilities! Especial considering that it was payday, we could literally have just booked a flight and ended up in South Africa, where my boyfriend's family live.

Alas, it was not to be, we are clearly more sensible than I am proud of! Nonetheless, it got me thinking about holidays, and airplanes, and airports, and wondering why airplanes and airports are so thrilling?

Is it unusual that when I'm planning my clothes and packing for a holiday, that I always specifically plan my airport outfits? A couple of summers ago I went on my own to Australia for 3 weeks to visit my boyfriend who was working out there. The journey to get to Australia involved an extremely hot & sunny drive to Heathrow, transfers through 4 airports, 3 flights, an hour bus journey in Melbourne and a 15 minute walk at the other end. All in all, leaving home on the Thursday at 1pm, and arriving in Melbourne on the Saturday at 11am, even taking off the 11 hour time difference that's like arriving at midnight on Friday – that's a pretty long journey, about 35 hours! Plenty of time to see all the pros and cons of life on a plane or in an airport!

Cons

We probably already know most of the cons of international jetsetter lifestyles! Whether it's the preparation for no-liquid hand luggage, Ie spending as much on miniature toiletries as you would have for hold luggage, or sometimes it's booking a 7am flight thinking that's great for maximizing your time away, forgetting that this realistically means getting out of bed in time to leave the house at 4am, and so being exhausted by the time you get to your destination even if it's only a 2 hour flight!

Then there's always the possibility of arriving at your destination without your hold luggage (something I both dread and wish for – funding from the insurance for a whole new wardrobe just to tide you through until you receive your own possessions back is very appealing!), missing a connecting flight, or being so close to missing it that you arrive on the plane in a sweaty crumpled heap ready to sit there uncomfortable for a 12 hour flight! Getting cold feet can be a pain, so I always take thick socks for an overnight flight. I also get 'restless leg syndrome' on long flights and have to wriggle around, and it sometimes stops me from sleeping. I prefer an aisle seat so that I can stand up and walk around as often as I like without having to trapped in by someone sleeping next to me if I'm in the window seat.

The cost of spending time in different airports and on multiple planes can really add up, and when you add in the different rules in different countries you can waste a lot of money! I bought two bottles of water in the airport in Abu Dhabi once I was through security, only to be told I could not take them on to the plane – as Australia does not allow any food or drink to arrive in the country, whilst in the UK as long as you bought the food or drink after security, you can stock up for your in-flight needs! And all of this was after I had been told on landing in Abu Dhabi that due to it being Ramadan no one was allowed to eat or drink in the airport, which takes some of the fun out of a 3 hour wait for connecting flights. It was alright as once the plane took off to Australia, they were very generous with handing out bottled water – which often is not the case on other airlines / flights, where I end up dehydrated, which leads me to another of the worst factors of flying.

Being dehydrated feet uncomfortable when you're thirsty, but it also affects your skin on long flights too, and I always feel the need for a good scrub and moisturize session in the loos! It can be difficult to arrive after 35 hours travel, seeing your boyfriend for the first time in a few months, and feeling groggy, exhausted, dehydrated with dull & dry skin! So always prepare your hand luggage accordingly with mini face washes and moisturizing creams, as well as deodorant, toothpaste and your tooth brush!

It just pays to prepare yourself buy buying well, with essentials in case you should lose your luggage for the first couple of days (Ie hair straighteners and phone charger for me!), Refreshing toiletries as above, and a pair of underwear and t -shirt if you fancy getting changed prior to arrival.

Pros

Of course not all aspects of air travel are negative, far from it! There's so much fun to be had! Take books or a kindle on to the plane, take an iPod with lectures or music that you've never had time to really get to before. Buy magazines if you never normally have time to yourself to indulge. As a treat to myself on my trip to Australia, I bought the last season of my favorite box set at the time (it's so uncool but was perfect watching for me, One Tree Hill!) And used my laptop for hours on the long flight when I could not sleep. There's always loads of cool films on the plane's in-flight entertainment systems, often they're not even out yet in the UK and you can see them first!

People are not always keen on airplane food but I love it to break up the flight, I especially love to treat myself to something like cheese and wine, or beer and pretzels, again to pass the time. The views are amazing at times. One flight to South Africa a few years ago the sky was gorgeous & bright above the clouds, and we could see planes all around us above, below, and level with us. It was like being on a futuristic airplane highway, absolutely fascinating to see!

Of course, one of the best of all parts of traveling is the duty free. I do not think this requires any explanation, although it's always worth checking allowances before purchasing! On my boyfriend's orders I bought a pack of tobacco, and ended up throwing of of it in the bin on arrival as Australia's customs did not allow anywhere near as much as we'd thought in!

Of course the absolute main pro of air travel is that you pretty quickly get to where you're going, so whether you're visiting new lands or cultures, or going home to visit family after a few years abroad, or hopping over to Mallorca for a friend's 30th, air travel means that we can achieve so much more travel than we could have in centuries gone by – so although there are some negatives of air travel, we really are lucky to live in a world where this is so accessible to all of us!

Is it worth it?

We had an amazing holiday, spent the first week in my boyfriend's flat before he moved out, spent some time with friends in Tasmania, then in short-stay apartments in Sydney for a few nights, and finally a luxury night in a hotel in the Dandenong Ranges, attending a wedding of friends we'd made in England. I was guided to have made it over, but less guided the morning after the wedding to be on countdown for my flight home, leaving the Dandenong hotel at 9am to make it to Melbourne airport for a 12 o'clock flight. And so commenced the day and a half's flight home, just in time for my Granddad's 80th birthday party luncheon. The time difference worked in my favor this time so I made it by Sunday morning ready for lunch – by 4pm though I was able to keep my eyes open anymore, but I think Granddad was feeling the same way!

In a 3 week period I had visited friends, my boyfriend, been to a wedding in the Southern Hemisphere, visited Sydney, Melbourne, and Tasmania, had a brief insight in to Abu Dhabi (only in the airport), been to my Granddad's 80th on the English South Coast, and generally had a delightful time. I would say to all of that, it was absolutely worth it! Also – if I had a bigger budget I could have reduced my travel time to more like 24 hours, than 35, but I do not think I could bear being cooped up for one long flight so for me, airport fatigue marginally airplane discomfort !

5 Reasons You Need A Luggage Travel Strap

Travel straps are a simple and often underutilized travel accessory. Learn about how they can make your travels much more convenient and less stressful.

Travel straps are a simple and often underutilized travel accessory. Learn about how they can make your travels much more convenient and less stressful. Check out these 5 reasons you need a luggage travel strap.

1) Keep Your Bags Closed – Sometimes you have heard or seen how rough baggage handlers are on luggage. While most bags make it through just fine, missing some of your stuff could throw a huge wrench in your travel plans. Having a luggage strap can help keep your contents inside if your luggage zipper breaks or if your bag gets cut open. I use a luggage strap on my collapsible duffel when I've stuffed it so full the seams are pulling apart!

2) Make Your Bag Smaller – If you have a soft bag such as a duffel or canvas bag, having a travel strap can compress the bag and make it smaller. This is especially handy if your bag is near the size limits and you need to save a little space. Every inch counts! It may also save you money by avoiding over sized luggage fees.

3) Make Your Bag Stand Out – Having a colorful travel strap can make your bag stand out. This is convenient when it comes time to get your bag from the baggage carousel. If you have a typical looking bag (ie black or blue) adding a strap can make it easier to identify. This prevails you, or someone else from accidentably grabbing the wrong bag.

4) Keep Your Luggage Secure – Many travel straps have built in TSA locks to add in an additional layer of protection. These locks are often harder to get through that tiny zipper locks. Even though they may not be completely “theft proof,” having a locking travel strap on your bag might be enough to deter a thief or at least slow them down long enough for someone to step in.

5) Strap Your Bags Together – After I gather my luggage, I usually put my carry on luggage on top of my roller. This makes it much easier to transport, but it can also be a security issue. It would be easy for someone to grab the carry on off the top, or equally easy for it to fall off. Extend the travel strap and strap the smaller bag right to the top. Now you only have one bag to keep track of!

Tips for Sleeping on an Airplane

1) Chose the right seat. Window seats are best for sleeping because you have a place to lean against. Equally important is that you do not have to move to allow other passengers past. Aisle seats allow a little more room, but you'll need to keep yourself out of the aisle to allow people and…

1) Chose the right seat. Window seats are best for sleeping because you have a place to lean against. Equally important is that you do not have to move to allow other passengers past. Aisle seats allow a little more room, but you'll need to keep yourself out of the aisle to allow people and the beverage cart to pass by.

2) Get a good travel pillow. There are lots of different travel pillows on the market; each with their own pros and cons. I prefer inflatable pillows because they do not take up a lot of space and are easy to transport. You might benefit from a “J” shaped pillow. Unlike a traditional U-shaped pillow J pillows support your chin and the side of your head.

3) Buckle your belt. Make sure your seat belt is fastened on the outside of your clothing and blankets. This allows the flight attendants to see your seat belt is secured so they will not have to wake you if there is turbulence.

4) Cover your eyes. Lights on the airplane can be turned off and on numerous times. To prevent yourself from being woken up by sudden light changes, invest in an eye mask.

5) Keep noise out. Use ear plugs or ear buds with music to keep the noise out. This will help you fall sleep and stay asleep through the hum of the aircraft and the noise of your neighbors.

6) Wear comfortable clothes. Dress in loose clothing that is breathable and flexible. Wearing clothing that is constricting makes it hard to get and stay comfortable when you're in tight spaces.

7) Medication. Some people are strongly opposed using medication to fall sleep while traveling. I say, it's up to each person to determine if this is the route they want to take. For me, taking a Tylenol PM is enough to get me to fall sleep and stay sleep. For others, they need something stronger like a sleeping pill or muscle relaxant. I warn against stronger medication because it can make you really out of it. When you're traveling you need to be able to react quickly to uncertain circumstances. That can be easier said than done to do when you're medicated!

8) Fly at the right times. Personally, I love red-eye flights. I try to make sure that my longest journey leaves in the late evening so I can fall sleep on the plane at a time when I'm naturally sleepy. Of course, it's not always possible to do this. If you find yourself on a long flight during the day, you might need to employ some other tricks to catch some zzz's.

9) Make yourself sleepy. When you're at home, what makes you tired? For me, watching television or reading make me tired. So when I'm on a plane, even if I do not feel like it, I try to make myself stay awake for the in-flight movie or to read a few chapters in a book. Makes my eye lids heavy!

10) Free your feet. Move your carry-ons to the overhead bin to give yourself some more room to stretch out. I also bring along travel slippers so my feet are comfortable and not constricted. You can also wear compression socks to keep the blood in your legs flowing. This is especially important if you are sleeping on a long flight and not getting up to walk around and stretch.

Smart Tips to Pack Well for Planning An Air Travel

Traveling is a fun experience for anyone but packing for an air travel is simply tiresome. Whether you want to believe it or not, packing is a tricky and tiresome task as you can not just throw all your desired things into a baggage or suitcase and take it to the airport. All airlines or air-carrier, whether it's domestic or international has some special rules and regulations for luggage like, what all you can pack in your checked luggage and carry-on bag or bags. And, if you exceed the limits or do not obey the luggage rules of the relevant airline, then you may need to pay an extra fee to check even a single extra bag (weight wise as well). In the following write-up, we have mentioned some of the smart tips which you can follow while planning an air travel.

Be Prepared for Lost Baggage
While doing the packing, you must keep in mind the status of lost baggage at the airport! Therefore, you should pack 2 days' worth of clothes along with a toothbrush / toothpaste and any other daily usable item in your carry-on bag. The bag should also be including a comb or brush, travel-sized contact lens solution and makeup. And, of course, carry your passport and other identification documents or copy of the same bag.

Do Light Packing
Packing light is the best way to travel anywhere in the country or across the world. So, before packing, always select clothes depending upon the onward country and keep the quantity of the same according to the travel duration. If it is a long trip, you might not get laundry facilities at nearby places, so in that case you must pack smartly and play around with clothes by a mix & match trick. For instance, you can take 3 denims and different T-shirts / tops & shirts, which you can wear through your trip. Leave some room in a suitcase that will be good to take souvenirs in the same bag.

Do Well Research About Luggage Policy of Airline
As it is said earlier, many air carriers (both domestic & international) have some strict limits relating to the size, weight and number of pieces of luggage that you are allowed to check-in and bring on as carry-on the plane. Most airlines allow you to have two carry-on items: one piece of carry-on luggage of a particular size and one personal item (like a purse or laptop case). However, this policy may vary from airline to airline. In addition, the policies for checking bags differ even more broadly. Moreover, the size and weight specifications vary from airline to airline and even, particular route to route. Therefore, before doing the packing, visit the website of the airline through which you are traveling and check out about the luggage policies to avoid any hassle at the airport.

Checkout Forbidden Items
Last but not the least; you must note that the Transportation Security Administration forbids few items in your checked baggage, in your carry-on bags or both. For instance, you are allowed to include box cutters, drills and golf clubs in your checked luggage, but these items are not allowed in carry-on bags. Similarly, you are allowed to carry a lighter carry-on bag. So, while packing keeps the tips in mind and enjoy happy air traveling.

Fliers can get a number of options when it comes to traveling across continents. A number of international carriers are present for this purpose that provides a seamless travel experience over time zones. Whether travelers want to opt for any popular rout or any other parts of the world, plenty of options are always available. Frequent fliers may have noticed that sometimes a carrier offers trips even to those locations, which are actually not connected by them. A flight of a particular carrier might not travel to New York, however, it may allow booking to that location. This is due to a term called codeshare, which is an agreement between global airlines around the world.

Most airlines around the world have a number of codeshare agreements with others. This is actually a business arrangement in aviation, wherein two different airlines share an aircraft. Travelers may book tickets with a particular airline, but in reality the aircraft might be actually blown by another. The flight number or code can be different depending on a variety of factors. Typically the code is the airline designator provided by International Air Transport Association (IATA) followed by the unique flight identification number.

Advantages of Alliance

This agreement has a welcomed a remarkable change in the way air travel agencies operates in modern days. It is beneficial for both, travelers as well as airlines. Codeshare agreements help carriers to increase their network of connectivity over a large number of destinations without having additional aircraft. Serving to a wider network without spending extra money on buying extra flights or maintenance is beneficial. In regard to travelers, one of the largest perks of these agreements among airlines is that booking tickets becomes easier. They can make reservations for air travel across multiple flights in a single transaction. Almost all constant carriers have these partnership agreements with others and this deal is amongst key features of significant airline alliances.

Codeshare enables a unique alliance among carriers and makes connectivity and accessibility easier. For example, KLM airlines ticket booking can be made for more than 130 destinations in approximately 170 countries all over the world. This wide network of destinations across continents is possible to serve due to the codeshare agreements that KLM has with almost all members of SkyTeam. Beside, it also has such agreements with other airlines, such as Air Lingus, Air Baltic, Etihad Airways, Jet Airways and Flybe. Alliances, which operate in different parts of the world, widen the spectrum of connectivity and reach.

If you travel enough, it's bound to happen to you ever. Lost luggage is extremely inconvenient, frustrating, and sometimes costly. Here are some methods on how to decrease your chances of lost luggage.

Fly Direct: My # 1 advice on how to decrease your changes of lost luggage is to fly direct. By having a direct flight, you reduce the number of times your luggage is handled. Not having your luggage transferred from plane to plane greatly reduces the chances that your luggage heads in the wrong direction.

Arrive Early: When you narrowly make your flight, there is a good chance your luggage will not make it at all. Arrive in plenty of time so that if your luggage has to make a few pit-stops on the way to the plane, there's plenty of time for it to do so.

Use the Main Counter: Tempting as it may be to use the curve-side check-in, you are better off using the main ticket counter. Instead of being moved from the curve to the main counter, your luggage goes straight on the conveyor. Just one less opportunity for it not to go to the right place!

Label Your Bags: Make sure your bags are labeled with your name, address, and phone number. If the stickers / tags are ripped off, this may be the only way for the airline to identify who the bag belongs to.

Remove Old Labels: Remove all old airline stickers and any tags with old information on them. Having dated information on your bag causes confusion and can cause your bag to be mis-routed.

Include Your Itinerary: If your exterior tags are removed, having a printed copy of your itinerary inside can help the airline identify your bags.

Check the Stickers: After the counter agent prints and labels your luggage, ask them if you can take a look. Make sure that they've put the correct stickers on them and that the destination is correct. These agents are often multi-tasking and it's easy for them to grab the wrong ones.

Make Your Bag Unique: Many “lost” bags are not really lost, they're just grabbed by the wrong person. Make your luggage unique so that someone does not take it by accident. If you do not want to replace your luggage with a wild pattern, use colorful luggage straps or handle wraps to make it stand apart from the rest!

Fly the Right Airlines: Some airlines have more of a history of losing luggage than others. Do your research and fly airlines with a better track record of getting your luggage to the right place.
