Pack Bubble Wrap To Prepare For Souvenirs During Your Trip

If you're the type of traveller who always comes back with a suitcase full of souvenirs, you might underestimate your luggage space when you pack. This makes it difficult to fit all your stuff into one bag on your return trip. One travel expert offers a simple solution: Bubble wrap. Photo by Steven Depolo.

Over at Travel + Leisure, Associate Editor Nikki Ekstein offers an easy tip:

It sounds silly, but I always pack bubble wrap. It saves space in my suitcase for the things I'll undoubtedly buy on my trip -- and then I also have a good way to wrap them up and keep them safe in my luggage.

If you have fragile items in tow, this allows for extra padding, but I also like Ekstein's point that it serves as a placeholder for the stuff you'll bring back. For more quick travel tips, head to their post at the link below.
