With holidays abroad looking firmly like they might be on the agenda for summer 2022, we’re already looking at ways to cut travel costs so we can get ourselves on that lilo with a bag of Lays crsisps ASAP.
And one hack that we’ve never considered is proving so popular over on TikTok that it’s amassed a whopping 1.3million likes. All you need? An empty pillowcase.
TikTok user Anya Lakovlieva (@nolimitua) recommends filling an empty pillowcase with extra items that won’t fit inside your suitcase as a way to bring more items (specifically clothes) on holiday with you. In her video, she crams additional soft garments into a zipped pillowcase and then takes the ‘pillow’ to the airport and onto the plane with her and uses it for extra comfort on her flight. It’s an interesting way to beat the hand luggage only fee, that’s for sure. And we’d absolutely never say no to something that might aid a sneaky plane nap to pass the time.
And, whilst the pillow packing hack might be an idea worth a go if you’re desperate to throw a few extra beach dresses and swimming cossies in your holiday holdall but can’t quite squeeze them in, it’s worth noting that not all airlines will allow you to bring a full-size bedroom pillow on board with you. Best to check before you commit.
Get. Us. On. That. Plane.
