PACKING a suitcase before a holiday is a fine art, especially if you don't have any checked luggage.

Many holidaymakers opt for packing cubes – but there is a better solution.

Compression cubes are much better at fitting more clothes into your suitcase.

While some require a bulky hoover to suck the air out, many now use external zips which let you fill the cubes up before flattening them.

This means you can fit so much more in your suitcase than you may think.

We've looked around and found some for as little as £16.99 on Amazon for three, working out to £5.60 per cube.

"This year it was all so simple, I took a medium size case and for the first time I got everything in.

"I also used one compression bag for a 2-night visit to Italy, it fitted into my large handbag, first time I have ever managed without a suitcase, so much easier to manage at the airport."
