Packing light isn’t a skill many of us can muster – yet help is at hand. Ryanair’s hand luggage limitations might have meant compromising on style for lack of space in your cabin holdall – until now. A new travel hack has been revealed which shows the best way to cram your clothes into the restricted space for that short haul vacation. Passengers on the budget airline are currently permitted to take a bag on board with them for free, while any luggage which has to be placed into the hold has to be paid for.

Fees can be pretty expensive so travellers tend to make do with the cabin restrictions.

The company’s website states: “All passengers are entitled to bring one small personal bag on board which must fit under the seat in front of you (40cm x 20cm x 25cm).

“Examples include, handbag, laptop bag and small backpack.”

Yet an old army hack has surfaced online dubbed the “ranger roll”, a technique used by soldiers to pack their clothes while travelling on missions abroad.

It shows how to wrap garments such as plain white T-Shirts into a bundle which won’t unroll.

Coming straight from the horses’ mouth, a former American soldier has taken to YouTube to show just how to perfect the rule swerve.

He can be seen putting a basic T-Shirt on a flat table before turning the bottom of the item inside out.

Both sides of the garment are then brought into the middle draw into the centre, with the short sleeves then tucked in.

He beings to roll like a sausage from the collar, keeping the bundle tight.

Making the item so small means more tops can fit into the tightly-monitored space so holidaymakers have more of a selection of what to wear.

Clothing is also kept relatively crease-free, meaning no time is wasted ironing in the hotel room.

Meanwhile, one type of item which should always be bought at the airport itself, and not packed beforehand, are electrical items.

Lea Claxton, Head of Retail at London Stansted Airport spoke to Express.co.uk exclusively on one of the best tricks when shopping.

The best money-saving hack is to buy gadgets at the airport, such as Kindles or GoPros.

Both are often an important part of a relaxing holiday yet can often be left behind or broken before travelling.

Ms Claxton said: “Dixon Travel offers an impressive price promise to their customers.”

“Customers that find any of their products on Amazon, John Lewis, Argos or Jessops (excluding third party sellers) for cheaper will be discounted double the difference instantly.”
