1 Lay out ev­ery­thing you think you need on the floor or bed and then cut it in half. Be re­al­is­tic about what you’ll ac­tu­ally wear vs what you think you’ll wear.

2 Roll your clothes in­stead of fold­ing them. Fill dead space by rolling undies and socks and stuff­ing them into shoes.

3 Throw an over­sized scarf into your carry-on – it will dou­ble as a blan­ket in the sub-zero plane air-con or can be rolled into a lit­tle pil­low. Pack a pair of track­ies to change into on flight, and a silk eye mask so the cabin crew know not to dis­turb.

4 Travel with re­ally cheap sun­nies as well as a more luxe pair. Go to the beach and hike through wilder­ness (or cob­ble­stoned streets) in the $10 pair, and save your posh ones for af­ter­noon san­grias by the pool.

5 If you’re close to the bag­gage weight limit, wear some of your heav­ier pieces on your jour­ney back.

6 Pack a spare set of clothes into your carry-on so that if your bags get lost, you’ll have some­thing fresh on hand. At the very least, have a fresh pair of socks and undies to change into af­ter a long­haul flight. You’ll feel bet­ter for it.

7 Wear a sports bra on long flights (or go without!) for max­i­mum com­fort.
