Cheap flights for travelling light

The offer applies to certain buzz flights
Low-cost airline buzz is offering cheaper flights to travellers who take just one piece of hand luggage when they travel outside of the UK.

Vouchers entitling flyers to a 10 discount off the price of their next buzz flight will be issued to anyone travelling light on selected planes.

The offer applies to buzz flights to Murcia and Jerez in Spain and La Rochelle and Marseilles in France on 2 and 9 June.

Less luggage makes economic sense for airlines as a lighter load means less fuel.

The benefits for holidaymakers include no queuing at airport luggage carousels.


We really need to change our attitude to packing

Buzz came up with the offer after research undertaken for the company revealed that an increasing number of people are taking long weekend breaks to beach destinations.

The offer is in recognition of the fact that people taking such holidays usually carry less luggage.

Katy Cumming, of House of Fraser, told BBC Television: "We really need to change our attitude to packing.

"We don't need to take all the products that we usually need in every day."

She suggested that items such as small tubes of tester cosmetic products and clothing such as roll-up hats can save on room when packing.
