Packing Tips

We’ve been travelling full-time with just carry-on luggage for 10 years and believe that packing light is the secret to stress-free travel.

My book The Carry-On Traveller (available on Amazon) features practical tips to help you pack light and never check luggage again. By travelling carry-on only, you’ll save time at airports, save money on checked luggage fees, and reduce the stress of hauling bulky bags.

To get started read our latest carry-on only packing list and how to use packing cubes to save space

See below for more packing tips, gear reviews, and packing lists.
