We’ve all heard of how important it is to “travel light.” But how exactly can it be done? If you were ever put in a situation where you had to lug around the wrong kind of bag at an airport terminal or broken one of the bag’s wheels on the cobbled streets of Europe, then it’s safe to say that it’s time to pack smart for your trip. Consider it one less thing to worry about so you can enjoy your travel experience to the fullest.

There are so many different types of bags out there and so many packing techniques that can help make your traveling experience much less hectic. Consider also taking only one bag on your trip. With the perfect guide to one bag travel, it will make your travel experience a lot more relaxed.

Below is a guide to the tips and trick of traveling light and choosing the right kind of bag.

Moving around will be easier and lighter on your body

Depending on the type of trip you’re taking, choosing the right type of bag is highly important. You don’t want the inconvenience of a heavy bag and a back or arm injury to go along with it. If you’re a seasoned traveler looking for an adventure, then a sturdy backpack is the right fit for you as it’s hands-free. Backpacks are the popular choice with campers, hikers and outdoorsy travelers.

It saves you time, energy and money

Traveling with one bag will be a lot cheaper than buying several other bags. Instead, save that money for your trip. You can also save time by choosing a light colored bag to cut the wait at baggage claim in half. Carrying your one bag will be a lot more convenient on the plane as well, as you can store it in the overhead compartment or below your seat, so be sure to choose one that isn’t too large or bulky but just right.

It’s safer and reduces stress

Traveling with one bag reduces stress because it’s light on your body and easy to carry around the country you’re visiting and the airport terminals. You won’t worry about double-checking where your bags are or if you forgot one of them somewhere. It’s also the safest option. If you’re traveling on a tight budget and are staying at a hostel or inn, then the safest option is one bag to walk around with instead of leaving it where you’re staying.

It helps carry all your belongings

Choosing bigger luggage, even if it’s one bag is also convenient when you need a lot of space for your belongings. Choose a suitcase with wheels to help you move around as well. A rolled suitcase is suitable for weekend trips, shopping trips or business ones. Also consider the four-wheeled suitcases if you don’t want to lug around a lot of weight on your wrist instead of the two-wheeled suitcase.

It minimizes packing time

The less you carry around, the less time you spend packing and unpacking. Pack the smart way by packing from the bottom up by putting the heavy items you don’t need right away first with the rest of your belongings on top. Don’t take too many clothes and roll them instead of folding as it’s a space saver. Always use travel pack sizes in everything, especially your toiletries.

Learn from experience

Traveling light can seem like a hard task at first, but the more you travel, the more you become experienced in the art of choosing the right bag for your trip and the talent of packing light. Make your travel journey enjoyable and stress free. Have a safe flight!
