The benefits of not checking luggage
Why carry-on baggage will transform your travel experience
Imagine an airport experience that is relatively stress-free. While there is no certainty when it comes to delays and turbulence, there is one area where you have complete control: baggage. To avoid the inevitable lengthy check-in process, wait at the carousel, and constant fear of lost or damaged goods, adopt a minimalist approach—it may be more freeing than you think.
Depending on the airline, some check-in bag costs can range from $50 to $100—that might get you a (very cheap) one-way flight! Pick up your favorite duffel, old backpacking bag, or sleek cabin suitcase, and watch as you save time and money.
After hours of air travel, the last thing anyone wants to do is stand around the bleak, fluorescent collection area waiting for their dusty, shaken-up suitcase. Instead, stride out of the airport in style and get right to what you came for.
Packing light is possible! By simplifying outfit choices into classic and trusted pieces, you not only cut down your load, but it makes getting ready a breeze.
When it comes to travel, the minimalist approach reaps many rewards. Try it out and see how quick you can fly through the airport!
