With long security queues, airport delays and plenty of flight cancellations, the much-anticipated return of summer travel has been largely overshadowed by travel chaos. One thing you can do to reduce the pressure ahead of your holiday is to pack smarter, and ideally pack cabin luggage only.

Based on my travel recently, I would definitely not be checking a bag. I would only be flying with hand luggage because the queues that you’re encountering in airports around the world are all around bag drop,” says travel writer Nicola Brady. “Until September, if it was an option I would only fly with hand luggage because that’s where all of the stresses are really.”
