How to Keep Calm and Carry On When You're Stranded Without Your Checked Bags

February 8, 2016

These days, it feels like a miracle when you and your luggage arrive at your destination together. Whether your bags are delayed or lost, you’re left stranded and heading to the store to stock up on all those things you thought would arrive when you did. 

With this is mind, we suggest you get smart about packing your carry-on!

If you want to be sure there’s room for your carry-on, go soft!

  • Soft-case bag

Purchasing a soft, fabric carry-on case is very advantageous. A soft case ensures flexibility, which makes squeezing into the tightest and smallest of overhead compartments a breeze.

Make it easy to find things when you need them!

Carry-on case with outside pockets

Make sure to carry your most used and important items in the outside pockets of your carry-on. Things like your passport, itinerary, and charge cables for computers and phones need to be accessible and readily available. A big pocket for your computer is also very handy, as you’re likely to be pulling it out for security on a number of occasions. 

When your checked bags don’t make it to your destination, it’s important to have all the essentials.

Change of clothes, medicines, diapers, etc. 

Pack as if you won’t be receiving your bag. Bring essentials to tide you over, such as medicines, charging cables, diapers, etc.
