What is a Hand Luggage Holiday?
A Hand Luggage Holiday is one where you take everything you need to have a great holiday in your hand luggage. As a naturist or someone prepared to try reducing their clothing by day you are taking the first step in reducing your hold baggage needs and costs! However there are many other things needed just to live comfortably, let alone to make for a great holiday.
Why would we want a Hand Luggage Holiday?
Many airlines now charge for each bag each way .. travelling hand luggage only offers a considerable saving on your cost of flying. Electronic check-in saves time on arrival at the airport, but it works best if you don't have to check any hold baggage. On arrival no waiting at the carousel, no lifting heavy bags, no hurting your back doing it! Just walk straight through to your transfer or car hire.... and off on your holiday. Less to worry about, your hand luggage won't get on a different plane without you. Travelling light means a smaller carbon footprint.
