Just like you, we're all impatiently waiting for the summer vacations ! And, just like you, we've experienced those rising last-minute stress levels when it's time to get packed and ready to go. No need to panic ! Our Newfeel product heads and luggage designers are experienced travellers and very knowledgeable in luggage use. Today, these experts share their best practices with you !
The Newfeel team's tips and tricks, based on your means of transport
1# Be sure add a colourful address tag with your name and address to help keep your luggage from getting lost, and lock it with a colourful travel luggage lock. These two little steps can help you spot your bags from a distance!
2# Always check the exact size that is accepted by the airline you will be travelling with, both for check-in and carry-on luggage. This information is usually available on the airline's website.
3# Worried about going over the authorised weight limit—especially since overweight charges really add up quickly? Take aportable luggage scale with you! This highly practical device will save you from panic attacks when it's time to check in or board!
4# If you're going to be checking in luggage, it's best to arrive earlier at the airport to check in.
5# Your carry-on bags stays with you throughout your trip, so that's where to put the belongings that are most important to you.

1# When purchasing a bag with wheels, make sure that it can be easily pushed as well as pulled behind you; in a train, you often end up having to push your luggage in front of you.
2# Don't get to the train at the last minute; it's usually first-come-first-served as far as place to put your bags!
3# On board the train, space for luggage is usually available in the centre as well as at the extremities of each train car, and in the empty spaces between some rows of chairs that are placed back to back. Your luggage may end up being far from your seats, so as with air travel, don't forget to tag them with your name and address using a luggage tag and lock them using aluggage lock!
4# For small suitcases, backpacks and handbags, luggage racks are available above your seat. Use them!
1# It's important to distribute your weight evenly across the car so as to avoid problems when driving.
2# Place the heaviest items at the bottom of the car boot.
3# Fill in the empty spaces in your boot with small fold-down bags such as the Duffle 35L or the Duffle 55L from Newfeel. These also come in handy should you end up having extra things to bring back home!
