Question about packing/travel

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, hope you can help me out with this one, or if you have any experience to share.

My mom has a few of the vacuum storage bags and she suggested that I could pack my clothes in there and then put it in my suitcases - they are very effective and it looks like I can get some extra room in the suitcase.

I was wondering, if it's okay to pack like that? will it be a problem? has anyone packed with these and travelled with them before? and has it ever happened that one of the bags lost air and it all popped out again :blink:

Thanks :)

Be aware the the TSA tends to inspect bags and if they open those vacuum bags they may have a problem re-closing your suitcase, also you may get charged extra for heavy baggage.
