If your travels take you by plane, be diligent that you choose a carry-on bag that’s an adequate and reasonable size. In terms of hand luggage and carry-ons, each airline has a different policy. On average, cabin suitcases should measure no more than 22″ high x 9″ deep x 15″ wide. However, do not forget to consult the regulations of your air carrier before leaving to avoid the hassle and any unexpected surprises.
