A travel expert revealed a useful hack to bring more clothes on a flight without checking in a bag in viral TikTok video.

Chelsea Dickenson, from North London, who runs cheapholidayexpert.com took to TikTok to reveal her favourite travel tip. 

In the clip, Chelsea, 32, removed the foam from her neck pillow and proceeded to stuff it with numerous clothing items. 

She captioned the video, which racked up over 1.4 million views, ‘If this works it’s gonna be a GAMECHANGER! #travelhack #budgettravel #cheaptravel’

Chelsea said her hack was more ‘lower risk’ than the one she’s seen on TikTok where users stuff clothes in a large pillowcase.

She said: ‘So I have got a lower risk option for you to try, and it includes this. Yeah, so the other day I noticed it had a zip so I opened it up, there’s the memory foam—goodbye sunshine!

‘And instead, here’s my pants, probably shouldn’t have them on show, soz about that. 

‘Theres some tights that I’m putting in, also my hat, space for leggings also my T-shirt, so much room honestly.

‘Look how chocka full it is, I tightened it up, we are good to go.’  

She said revealed the idea came to her when she 'noticed it had a zip' so she opened it up and packed it full of clothes

From inside the airport the travel expert said:’ I am about to start boarding, let’s see if this works.’ 

In a follow-up video, she revealed that her hack did indeed work. 

Many people rushed to the comments to say they loved the idea and some social media users had already tried it.

One person wrote: ‘Bonus—now you have a change of clothes in case your suitcase goes AWOL!

While another asked: ‘Did it go through the security scanner okay?’ and Chelsea gave another useful tip to ‘just pop it in your open bag. Shows up as a bag of clothes – bit like a packing cube would!’

Someone else revealed: ‘I did this just last week, I put 2 hoodies in there all rolled up & it left SO much space in my carry on.’

Last year the blogger revealed another simple hack to bag the whole row on a plane when travelling in a pair – and booking row 13, making use of the superstitions surrounding the number, is one of the tricks. It’s not a popular row. 

Explaining her hack in a TikTok video that has gone viral, with over 260,000 views, Chelsea says that the other vital ploy is to book a window and an aisle seat, leaving the middle seat free.

The theory is that passengers are less likely to book a seat in between two strangers.   

Chelsea filmed her video on a British Airways flight from Heathrow to Corfu she took with her boyfriend.

The footage shows the pair boarding the flight, looking understandably delighted at the sight of a whole row to themselves, then waiting on tenterhooks while the rest of the plane boards.  

When they hear an announcement that boarding has been completed, with the middle seat between them still free, Chelsea declares that they’ve ‘bloody smashed it’.

She tells MailOnline Travel: ‘Having the whole row to yourself is just that extra bit of comfort – in fact, it’s exactly the same space you’d get if you were flying in British Airways’ business class offering for Europe, so it’s a great way to get the most for your money.  

‘What’s more, in times of Covid, it does feel like a safer travelling experience when you’ve got more space to yourself. And her favourite seat on the plane?

Chelsea says: ‘I wish I could say I was a window seat flyer, but I need the loo too much and so it’s the aisle for me, always.’

She adds that travellers should set an alarm for when check-in opens for their flight to up their chances of securing their favourite seat location, with the back of the aircraft, as well as row 13, being less crowded.
