The Cons Of Travelling With Just One Hand Luggage 

Travelling with just one bag or one suitcase on your vacation can undoubtedly be one of the best feelings ever because you would be avoiding long lines, crowded spaces where you have to collect your suitcases, extra luggage charge and so many more things. But, just like everything in life, there are pros and cons to this as well. In this e plus guide, I will talk about some of the cons of packing too light for your trip.

  • When you are considering packing everything in just one suitcase, you would be trying to fit all of your essentials in just one big bag. That can cause some issues because there will be space constraints no matter what. If you are packing one pair of shoes, there will not be any space for another. I am sure that you see what I am getting at.


  • Especially for long trips, you will not be able to manage with just one bag or one suitcase. Even if you pack extremely carefully, you will miss one or two essentials for sure. You should be considering taking all of it in your cabin luggage and finding a way to wash your clothes when you are away.
  • Most of the airlines do indeed have a baggage allowance for cabin bags and also possibly others. For many airlines, there are actually weight restrictions; it is quite low such 15 kilograms, which means that you will have to keep everything in a bag. A great technique will indeed be to put some heavy items in your pockets or even in your carryon bag. It is also very important you check all of the restrictions before you do leave for the airport. You should also see the maximum dimensions when it comes to your cabin bag and also if there is extra weight. If you also do not check this, you run the risk of having some excessive baggage fees at the airport.
