The horror of an overweight suitcase and the pain of wheeling it along on your travels is enough to scare sense into many of us. With everyone from Star Alliance to budget airlines strictly implementing their maximum weight limits for checked-in and carry on baggage, it is no wonder we tend to think twice before packing an item. We at Siddysays have compiled a list of essentials that you should pack in your travel bag, ranging from the most to the least important items. So whether it is a short, touch-and-go business trip halfway across the world or a two week vacation in Machu Pichu, these tips will help you travel light and fuss-free.
Many people are defeated by the sheer weight of their travel bag, so even if you pack just a few days worth of clothes, the bag still seems heavy. If you don’t have a light weight travel bag, then you should definitely invest in one. There are many lightweight and sturdy bags available on the market. These look like hard cases but weigh just fraction of what a traditional hard case would weigh. Make sure your travel bag (a) is lightweight and (b) durable. If you travel frequently for work, then you should consider investing in a lightweight carry on as this will allow you to carry more weight.
