The importance of dual-purpose clothes
For dual-purpose garments, it means you have less items to pack. These can include things like pants that you fold into shorts, or jackets that are also travel pillows, which reduce your bag weight and baggage fees.
Do not pack essential items in checked bags!
One of the worst mistakes you can commit is to keep the essential and valuable belongings in your checked luggage instead of your carry-on bag. Things like identification cards, passports, money, electronics like phones and laptops, credit cards and jewelry should always be with you on the plane. We are not required to explain why you need your passport and wallet on you, but in case loss or theft of your luggage happens, you will surely regret keeping your insanely expensive Rolex watch in that checked bag.
