A MAN shared his trick on how to make your own travel pillow, and it doesn’t even cost a penny.
Vacationers often find new ways to make the most of limited luggage space.
And one man who did just that has revealed how he turns items in his carry-on luggage into a makeshift travel pillow.
The video was posted to TikTok by flight comparison website Skyscanner.
While their website specializes in finding the best airfares, their TikTok page is a dedicated platform for sharing money-saving hacks.
In the videoa member of their social media team explained the different ways passengers can get comfortable during a flight.
He said offstage, “Going to a new place is always exciting, but sometimes the journey can be tough.”
“One of our favorite things to do is bring a really thick quilted jacket and stuff it in the bag.
“Then on the plane I lift the armrest of the chair three quarters up and use it as a cushion.”
Footage showed the man stuffing his coat into a sleeping bag.
He then moved the armrest into the air before tucking his makeshift travel pillow between the armrest and his head.
He added, “That’s how I personally achieve the best.”.”
As most UK holidaymakers are likely to pack a soft coat and sleeping bag, the hack is completely free.
The video has already accumulated 57,000 views on TikTok, and users rush to the comments to express their opinions.
One person wrote: “Love these tips, long flights can be very tiring at times.”
While another added: “I like the little side armrest trick, as a tall person I’m usually just screwed until I land.”
There are plenty of other makeshift travel pillow hacks out there as well, including one woman who revealed that she stuffs her travel pillow with items like clothes.
Not only does she fit more in her carry-on for free, but she can also nap on her flight – win, win!
And earlier this year, a man joked that he used a packet of chips as a travel pillow.
