I’m a travel expert and these are four rules I always follow when packing for a trip – they save space and money

A TRAVEL expert has revealed his top tips when it comes to packing for a trip. 

His way will save you space and money.


A travel expert, who goes by Maxmilespoints on TikTok, shared his four tips on his popular page. 

First, he said to keep luggage on the floor. 

“Don’t put your luggage on your bed. 

“You roll them through dirty airports including bathrooms,” he noted.

Next, he suggested rolling clothes to save space.

“Use packing cubes to stay organized and compress your clothes,” he added.

Finally, the man said to invest in a sturdy suitcase because airports are known for not handling luggage with care. 

This should prevent you from having to buy new suitcases, even if they're handled harshly.

However, many airports do have policies that can potentially replace damaged luggage.

If you're in this situation, check with a representative to see if you can file a claim while at the airport.

Several users were excited about these travel tips, and one travel blogger offered a storage hack of her own.

"If you want to get crazy, roll your clothes and compress in two-gallon Ziploc bags to get all the air out," she advised.

Other people confirmed that rolling clothes is the way to go – but that’s not the only way to get the best use out of luggage space.

Another person previously revealed on Reddit that they don’t fold or roll their clothes. 

"I stopped rolling and folding and my clothes are less wrinkled when I arrive and I can carry more in the same space,” they wrote. 

"I lay the first item on the bed or floor. 

“Then I lay the next item rotated 90 degrees on top of that.”

The person continues this rotating technique until everything is accounted for.

“Then I fold all four corners and shove it in my suitcase,” the Reddit user concluded.
