Queenie and Pablo began their world tour in Singapore and will next travel to London, followed by Paris, New York, Vancouver and Las Vegas before returning to Sydney.

It only cost the couple $1,000 each for all flights, as they could use Qantas points they’d earned by using a credit card for everyday purchases.

If they had paid for the flights, Queenie said it would have cost more than $10,000.

The helpful video has since been viewed more than 25,000 times on Instagram, with many thanking Queenie for sharing the recommendation.

‘I have never heard of it!’ one person wrote, while another added, “Nice to know, thanks for the tip.”

How to save when you travel:

  • Bring food to the airport
  • Bring a water bottle and snacks
  • Pack light so you don’t have to pay for checked bags
  • Use a card with no foreign transaction fees
  • Book at least six weeks in advance
  • Sign up for travel newsletters and sales alerts
  • Be flexible with your travel dates
  • Check hotel prices on several websites
  • Use cashback services for flights and accommodation

Marie and her Aussie boyfriend Jake Snow are known for sharing pictures of their travel adventures online and have a strong Instagram following of more than 1.1 million people.

The “Game Changer” hack was dubbed the “best trick ever” by other social media users online.

In the short clip, Marie can be seen filling the empty pillowcase with clothes, then walking through the airport and onto the plane.

Although the pillowcase was stuffed with clothing, it looked comfortable enough for Marie to rest her head on during the flight.

The clever hack can be used to save luggage space and would help avoid filling your suitcase over the maximum carrying capacity.
