Travelling with multiple bags can be a challenge because you only have so many hands. A luggage add-on strap can be an invaluable tool when it comes to managing all of your suitcases. Because they are inexpensive and incredibly easy to use, a luggage strap is something that every traveller should keep in an easily accessible pocket of the largest suitcase in order to attach a smaller bag to a larger bag. This can come in especially handy if the airline requests that carry-ons be consolidated to save space on the plane.
