How to avoid pricey luggage charges when you fly


The 34-year-old travel enthusiast had the coat made specifically for him, after his cabin bag allowance on a flight to Ireland was changed days before his flight.

The additional charges would have cost between £6 and £8 each way, but Mr Cimino disliked the charges on “principle”, so devised a clever hack to beat the system.

Speaking on Martin Lewis’ Extreme Savers show, Mr Cimino said: “I am someone who likes to travel, I mean I’ve been to lots of different places as far afield as Israel, to Canada, to Fiji, to Bali, Australia.

“We couldn’t now take our cabin bag free of charge with all our essentials in, we’d have to pay six to eight pounds there and six to eight pounds back.

“It wasn’t going to break the bank, but it was just the principal. So my friend and I put our heads together.”
