Flights with stringent hand luggage rules can be highly frustrating for holidaymakers - and Ryanair in particular has made its rules even more restrictive. Strict regulations mean careful planning is required when packing cabin bags. The key is to pack as lightly as possible and to take items that will prove highly versatile. Travel expert Adam Ewart, CEO of luggage delivery business Send My Bag, has revealed one key piece of luggage you should pack.

It’s important the clothing you’re taking on holiday is both versatile and low maintenance. This is crucial if packing light.
One very useful item - especially if you’re going to a warm destination - is a sarong.
“A sarong is great for a hot day but can also be used as a changing room at the beach,” Adam told Express.co.uk.
Further uses include: “A tablecloth for a picnic, a scarf if you’re chilly, a makeshift satchel for your souvenirs, a pillow when you’re weary, a head scarf to protect you from the sun… the list goes on. Be inventive and pack multiple-use items.”
The fabric of your clothing could make all the difference when packing for a budget airline flight.
“Consider the fabric of the clothing you’re taking and factor in its quality, thickness, weight, and texture,” Adam said.
