Instead of paying extra for an overweight suitcase or bag, Miguel recommends removing some of the heavier items from your checked baggage and placing them in a duty-free bag that you can then take on the plane.

She begins by folding the extra clothes into three neat, compact piles and wrapping them tightly in the blanket so that she has a bundle the size of her pillowcase.
Louisa then slips the pillowcase over the clothes wrapped in a blanket and, for added security, slips the second pillowcase on top in the opposite direction.
