Hand luggage: Top experts reveal the one clothing item that’s vital for ‘travel mishaps’

Hand luggage is a vital part of packing for a flight abroad especially with the numerous restrictions in place. It’s important that you not only pack what you need but also adhere to the cabin luggage allowance and follow the liquid rules in place. But sometimes it’s hard to know exactly what you need until a travel emergency occurs on your holiday, or even worse, on your flight.

Catie also revealed the key items she simply can’t travel without, which includes an innovative clothing hack.

Some of her favourite tips include the ‘Me Makeover Essentials Travel Makeup Kits’ and always bringing a dark coloured scarf with her on flights.

She added: “The dark colour helps if you have any travel mishaps and the scarf can double as a blanket in flight.”

She revealed that she always brings her pillow from home so she can be comfortable wherever she travels.

But she explained that when you bring your own pillow, there is always one thing you have to remember.

She added: “Make sure to use a brightly coloured pillow case so you don’t get it mixed up with the hotel pillows!”

And in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, one top tip that the sisters shared for travelling in the future is thinking about the health of yourself and your travel companions.

They said: “Take yours and your travelling companion’s health and age into consideration.

“Any time you travel abroad, there are more risks than travelling domestically.

“You’ll likely have a longer flight, be in unfamiliar territory, and be investing more money.”

They added: “Also, be sure to bring any medications (even aspirin or allergy medicine) with you as they can be hard to get abroad.”
