Air travel rules are strict when it comes to luggage, and often costly, too. While there are moments where airlines are forced to cough up the cash because they banged up or lost your luggage, travelers are usually at the mercy of the airline for what they can bring as a carry-on. Que this TikTok travel hack from Anya Iakovlieva.
Iakovlieva is a travel influencer who racked up 24.9 million views on her travel hack, and all you’ll need is a travel pillow case. The concept is simple: Swap out your pillow insert and instead stuff the cover with any extra clothes that didn’t fit in your carry-on, personal item, or checked bag. Sure, you’ll have to take the pillow through the x-ray scanner when you arrive at security and deal with any possible questions from the TSA agent, but this hack can make things a breeze once you arrive at the gate.
