Avoid any extra baggage charges on cheap flights to Australia by taking the advice of celebrity stylist Brix Start-Smith.
To make a case lighter, checking the weather forecast before jetting off is essential to avoid packing unnecessary items, she said, as is taking things which can double or triple-up – like a sarong that could be a scarf or skirt too.
A piece of statement jewellery could help mix up several different outfits and will not weigh much in a case, travellers are advised. And while it may not be relevant to those jetting off on cheap flights to Australia, a country known for its fabulous weather, some travellers may find it useful to carry a light umbrella in their handbag.
Her comments follow a survey from Thomson – as part of its Holiday Forever campaign – which found on average, only 16 per cent people wear and use everything they have packed for a break.
