You made it through January! We can’t be the only ones who felt like it was one long Monday. With the new month ahead, why not give yourself something to look forward to and book a weekend away? Love a mini break but dread the packing? Worry no more – we’ve got you sorted! Whether you fancy a city break or country escape, take a peek at our top tips below.



1: Use packing cubes. By clearly separating different items, you’ll be able to grab what you need and go.

2: Roll, don’t fold. Believe it or not, you’ll fit more clothes in if you roll them instead of folding them and it helps avoid creasing!

3: Know your limits. Make sure you’re aware of how heavy your bag can be to avoid costly charges at check-in.



1: Heading for far-flung shores? Skip the luggage carousel completely and pack your belongings in a carry-on case like our four wheel cabin bag. It’ll save you time when you land (and you’re far less likely to lose your bag!).

2: There’s nothing worse than running out of battery! Ensure your gadgets always have juice with a portable power pack. Make sure it comes complete with lightning cable and mirror for the perfect multi-tasking must-have.

3: Just off for the weekend? Make a frame holdall your go-to bag – with sturdy straps and a structured shape, it’s easy to carry on your shoulder and light enough to lift to that luggage rack!
