Carry on Only

4 Jul 2012 Caroline_the_Muse asked



I am looking at the Simply Italy Trip this winter and contemplating using just a Cary on, as it will be much cheeper for flights, has anyone else used just Carry On? and what are their thoughts (note I have no worries about doing a small amount of Laundry)

    Where are you from? Can’t believe that it would be cheaper, because most international airlines have a free baggage allowance of 20 kg (44lb) in economy class.

    I’m flying I to London from Canada, but I am doing a number in inter European flights on my own before and after my Italy tour. Its the cheap intereuropean flights that charge like €20 per bag per flight.
