I'm a flight attendant and there are three things you should never pack in your suitcase

CRAMMING your belongings into your suitcase is no easy feat – and there's a trio of troublesome items you should never pack.

This frugal flight attendant has revealed the secrets to making the most of your luggage space and what to avoid bringing on your trip.

Miguel Muñoz has shared his fountain of knowledge with holidaymakers to help avoid packing stress ahead of your trip abroad.

The cabin crew member explained his cardinal rules for what you should definitely not try and squash into your suitcase.

He told how you can save a wealth of room in your luggage by ditching bulky clothes that many travellers falsely deem essential.

Many Brits pile in items "just in case" – but Miguel said most of the time, its simply a waste of valuable space.

His first huge no-no is boots – as those who love to explore their holiday destination often bring them for hikes and long walks.

But they inevitably add a significant amount of weight and bulkiness to your luggage.

Instead, Miguel recommends opting for "aqua shoes", which he promises are "life changing" thanks to their versatility.

He told the Express: "I recently started using these very versatile trainers which you can use to swim.

"They get dry in a few seconds and they don't smell… they are really cool.

"You can use them to go hiking, to go to the beach, you can swim in them… and they don't take any space in your bag. I love them!"

But if you just can't leave your boots behind, the flight attendant suggests wearing heavy footwear when travelling instead.

Holidaymakers are no stranger to the chill on the airplane or the surprisingly nippy night air when abroad.

But bringing alternate jumpers to keep cosy is prohibited in Miguel's travel guide, as it unnecessarily reduces the capacity of your case.

His motto is to wear more on the plane to save space in your luggage, so he suggests layering up as much as possible.

By leaving behind your emergency stash of clothing, you can recoup a large amount of space in your case.

The cabin crew member added: "I always wear the biggest jumper and carry the coat with me on the plane, so I have that extra space."

And a third item favoured by travellers also missed out on Miguel's stamp of approval.

We all know opting to bring a pair of jeans to throw on during your hols is an unspoken custom practice while packing.

But the weighty denim fills up your luggage drastically, making it difficult to even get the zipper of your case shut.

Miguel advises holidaymakers to make the most of the good weather and instead bring lightweight alternatives.

He says only one trusty pair should be taken on the trip and preferably, you should travel in them too.

The flight attendant continued: "Jeans take up a lot of space so I recommend always wearing them when travelling and only taking one pair with you.

"Don't make the mistake of bringing two of each 'just in case'. It's always better to have less than more in any kind of trip."

Miguel assured sunseekers that it's not the end of the world if their short of an outfit or even essentials like underwear, as you can always buy that there.
