Travel experts reveal the 6 things you should NEVER pack in your carry-on luggage

PACKING for a vacation is never an easy thing to do, especially if you have to fit all your luggage into one carry-on suitcase.

There are items that people stuff in their carry-on bags that end up taking up too much space.

Go Dan River travel experts have compiled a list of six items you should never try to pack in your carry-on luggage.

High heels

Those of you who are trying to stuff your heels into your suitcases are advised not to.

Not only are heels heavy, but they can also have an awkward shape.

It is recommended that you try to avoid packing them unless they are essential for your trip.

thick raincoat

If you’re traveling in the winter or going somewhere cold and damp, a heavy coat might seem like a great addition to the suitcase.

However, they are large and bulky, so a light raincoat, poncho or umbrella are all listed as items to pack instead, as they will take up less space.

It is recommended that anyone who needs a durable raincoat take it on trips, so that it does not have to go in the suitcase.

neck pillow

Some travelers insist on bringing a neck pillow for their comfort.

However, they can be quite bulky and for short trips they are not really essential.

Unless you have a very long trip, the advice is to leave the pillow at home.

Incorrect adapters

Surprisingly, people often take more than one adapter with them when they go on vacation, just to make sure they have the correct one.

It’s worth doing some research before the holiday and only bringing the correct adapter, or if in doubt, getting a universal adapter.

Dry clean only clothes

Packing versatile clothes is useful when you only have a small baggage allowance.

Therefore, bringing clothes that need to be dry cleaned can be a hassle.

One stain and those clothes can’t be worn for the rest of the trip and will end up taking up valuable space in the pack.

Too many skincare products

It can be tempting to pack all your skincare products to help you look your best over the holidays.

However, these can also take up a vital luggage load.

The advice is to only pack essential skincare products, which are cleanser, moisturizer and SPF.
