And one man who has done just that has revealed how he transforms items in his hand luggage into a makeshift travel pillow.

The video was posted on TikTok by the flight comparison website, Skyscanner.

While their website specialises in finding the best flight prices, their TikTok page is a dedicated platform for sharing money-saving hacks.

In the video, a member of their social media team explained the different ways passengers can get comfortable during a flight.

In a voiceover, he said: “Going somewhere new is always exciting, but sometimes the journey can be rough.”

“One of our favourite things to do is to bring a really thick puffer jacket, and put it inside of its case.

“Then, on the plane, I raise the arm of the chair three-quarters of the way up, and use it as a pillow.”

The footage showed the man stuffing his coat inside what appeared to be the case for a sleeping bag.

He then moved the armrest into the air before wedging his makeshift travel pillow between the armrest and his head.

He added: “This is personally how I get the best sleep.”

As most Brit holidaymakers are likely to have a soft coat, and a sleeping bag case, the hack is completely free.

The video has already amassed 57,000 views on TikTok, with users rushing into the comments to share their opinions.

One person wrote: “I love these tips, long flights can sometimes be very tough.”

While another added: “I like the little side armrest hack, as a tall person I’m usually just screwed until I land.”

There are plenty of other makeshift travel pillow hacks online too, including a woman who revealed that she stuffs her travel pillow with items like clothes.

Not only can she fit more into her hand luggage for free, but she can also snooze on her flight – it’s a win, win!
