Thousands of travellers swear by a £29.99 bag that means you never have to pay for hand luggage again | The Sun
A BAG on Amazon has been given thousands of five-star reviews – with many claiming you never have to pay for hand luggage while using it.
Many low-cost airlines charge to take a suitcase into the cabin now, only allowing a small "personal item" as a bag that can fit underneath the seat in front.
The travel backpack measures 42cm x 31cm x 17cm so it will fit underneath most airline seats
It can fit a 14-inch laptop, and has an "anti-theft zipper pocket" to keep your purse and passport.
The bag has a hidden charger port, so you can connect to a power bank in your bag and charge your gadgets on the go, as well as a wet pouch for any swimwear and toiletries.
It even has a strap on the bag so it can slide onto the handle of your suitcase.
