Travel Needs Sorted With Cabin Zero

For many people, the joys of traveling and experiencing new places are slightly tempered by the luggage situation. So many airlines now charge you for putting luggage into the hold, which makes the option of ‘hand luggage only’ so much more attractive. But many of the cases which are advertised as perfect as carry-on luggage, or as airline approved, are heavy before you’ve even put anything inside, and their design means that you are not just traveling light, but are traveling very, very light indeed.

Cabin Zero is a different proposition. Their bags are airline approved by most airlines (standard cabin bag dimensions of 55x40x20cm), but they are also ultra lightweight so that you can make the most of the weight allowance. They come in a range of colours, so they can be matched to your existing luggage, or just to your style taste. They are also very security conscious, with both a zipper fastening, luggage clasps, and are also fitted with a tracker device so that you can avoid that awful lost luggage feeling. Cabin Zero are so secure about their bags that they come with a 10 year guarantee.

There are so many things that recommend Cabin Zero bags for your travel needs. They are waterproof on the outside, so keeping your clothes and belongings inside dry. They can be carried in many different ways, from like a rucksack on your back (with lovely thick straps that won’t dig into your shoulder blades) but you can also hold this like a traditional suitcase, either on its side or upright. The case area is lined, and also has a front zipped pocket which is useful for travel documents or anything you need to find in a hurry. Plus, it looks super stylish, and it holds loads, very important, if, like me, the idea of traveling light means only five pairs of shoes.

Cabin Zero offers a practical, and yet luxurious option to traveling hand luggage only.




Flight Delay – Could You Claim Compensation?

This Autumn has proven to be a miserable time for travelers. Thousands of flights that have been booked and paid for have been cancelled in the Ryanair fiasco, with holidays ruined and families left disappointed. Whether Ryanair’s issues have been caused by pilots leaving to work for a rival company, working their alloted flying hours already or by pilots taking holidays, the truth is that it is their customers who have been treated shoddily and had holidays that had been worked hard for destroyed by a companies ineptness.

Flight delays and cancellations are the scourge of modern day holidays. I have been lucky that the longest delay I have yet to encounter has only been for a few hours, but when you have tired children in tow, very little money left after your hols and overflowing airports where finding a seat would be a luxury, even this can be a nightmare. Many people don’t realise that if your flight is delayed by three hours or more, you can be entitled to compensation that can range from £250 – £600 per person. As long as you have a valid reservation for the flight and arrived at the departure airport in time for check-in, then the fault is not yours and you could have a valid claim.

If you think you could be entitled to compensation, whether it be for a flight that has been delayed, diverted, cancelled, or even overbooked, then you could find out more with Flight Delay Claims 4U. They have a wealth of experience in winning compensation for air travelers, and operate a no win, no fee claim system, and have a 98% success rate in court.

Finding out if you have the right to claim is very simple, you just need to fill in a few key details including flight date and departure number, along with some contact details, and then a representative will get back to you.

Remember, the law sets out to provide guidelines for EU flight delay compensation. A passenger is entitled to make a claim for compensation if the flight is delayed by 3 hours or more, unless it is due to ‘extraordinary circumstances’. So don’t accept shoddy service – you have paid for it, after all.


July Outfit Post

July was my favourite month of the year so far. This was because I spent half of the month in wonderful Cyprus, and, more importantly, I got to see my little brother get married. It was a month of sunshine and fun, and, to top it all off, there was a sleepover at Warwick Castle and a theatre night too. A busy month that was full of fun.

My outfits this month all suggest sunny days and a warm climate, which makes perfect sense as Cyprus was going through a bit of a heatwave at the time (40 degrees plus most days – basically melting weather). There are new buys from Spanish favourites Mango and Zara as these are always brands I stock up on when I’m abroad, along with new pieces that I picked up before I went away that may well now be in the Summer sales that seem to be everywhere, in the most jumble sale fashion. Where I can link to an item or something similar I have done just in case you want to check it out for yourself, although looking out the window this morning, it seems like British Summer time came and went a few weeks ago, and the rain is now set in.

What did you do in July? Have you had your summer holiday yet?
