It's time to #packupandgo ✈️

I've been using the hashtag #packupandgo for a little over a year now on Instagram and Twitter because I think it fits the One Carry-On ethos: that you should be able to pack up a bag and travel wherever you want, whenever you want. It's also why, when I learned about Skyscanner's Elite program for travel bloggers, I knew I had to join. As a Skyscanner Elite, I now have immediate access to the latest airfare deals and insider tips for travel to share with you. I'm also going to submit a few posts for their blog, too - so keep your eyes peeled on my social media for announcements about that.

Don't know where you want to go next? That's exactly why I've been using Skyscanner as my primary online airfare search tool for the last couple years. All you need to have is a rough idea of the dates you'd like to travel so that you can use the "Everywhere" option to narrow down the countries and then cities that will be most affordable during your time off.

There is also the handy "Map" feature which enables you to enter your home airport and search a broad range of dates and low prices with a map view.

Because it's an affiliate program, each time you click a link I earn credit towards future travel, which is what will help me keep the running of this blog possible. It's so fun for me to share this knowledge with travelers like yourself. Want to receive travel news and fare alerts by email?

Bon voyage!
