I’m a travel pro – I’ve got the best hack for getting extra luggage through security but I’m trolled for my approach | The Sun

WANT to save a buck on extra carryons during your next vacay?

A travel guru by the name of Ashlin has shared how she gets additional luggage past security at the airport.


In a video shared with her 167.9K TikTok followers, Ashlin revealed her crafty secret. For starters, she filled a drawstring bag with extra clothes.

According to Ashlin, since security doesn't care how many bags you have, but rather what's in them, you shouldn't be on their radar.

Once you've skated by security, find a private area such as a bathroom.

You'll then loop the strings of the drawstring bag over your arms, allowing the bag to rest on your chest. Throw a roomy hoodie on over it, and voila!

At this point, due to your bulging front view, you will simply be mistaken as pregnant and potentially get away with having a few extra items on your flight.

Though Ashlin feels that her tactic is foolproof, people in the comments section weren't too fond of the hack, some claiming it simply wouldn't work.

"Why don't you just pay for your bag??" one person questioned.

"I have had security tell me to condense to two bags before they would let me in line," another added.

"This doesn't work. They ask you about allllllllll your bags at check-in. And yes, they will ask about the bag you think you're hiding on your person," a third viewer cautioned.

"Why are you doing this?" a fourth spectator inquired.

Explaining why the fake baby hack is a no-go, one user quipped: "This wouldn’t work for me because I like to drink at the airport bar."

"Security definitely cares. I had three bags and one was a med bag and they tried to tell me I had to check one of the bags."

"I wish we lived in a world where this wasn't even something somebody has to think of doing."

"It will be posted on your ticket that you are pregnant when you board the plane. Unless no one questions your 'pregnancy' you will be fine."

An airport employee chimed in with some helpful info: "I mean, I get it, but as a check-in agent we need to ask you how far along you are and if you have a med cert to prove you and your shirt baby [are] safe."
