We're all guilty of trying to cram far too much into our suitcases. Try as we might, we always seem to come back with t-shirts we never wore and jackets we didn't really need. In fact, a recent survey from Monarch Airlines reveals a third of Brits wear no more than half the clothes they take with them on holiday. Some of us even admit taking pillows and toilet rolls abroad - things hotels provide for free!

You'll have to drag that suitcase around London, the airport and your destination, so it's vital to think wisely about what you pack. Not to mention you may also incur extra charges from your airline should your suitcase be too big or weigh too much. To make sure that doesn't happen, here's some tips on how to pack light.

Christmas markets

One of the absolute nicest things you can do when December arrives is visit a Christmas market. We get to warm cold hands around a steaming cup of mulled wine, and get into the festive spirit while doing a bit of shopping.

There is any number of so-called German markets popping up across the UK, but they pail into insignificance when compared with the show stoppers that our international cousins throw. Here, in no particular order, are just a few of the best Christmas markets.

easyBus Christmas

Christmas time. Mistletoe and wine. Millions hunting for cheap flights online.

As the festivities creep closer, many of us are starting to get in the Christmas spirit (despite the fact that our Halloween masks and decorations haven't been put away yet!). It's also around this time that we start planning how we're going to get home for Christmas - important preparation, especially for those who need to fly in order to pull crackers, exchange gifts and tuck into mum or dad's famous roast spuds on December 25th.

So when's the best time to book your Christmas flight tickets to or from London? RIGHT NOW, literally. Price comparison site Skyscanner.net recently revealed that booking in early November can save you a solid eight per cent on your flight.

But if you're going to save a little, you might as well try and save a lot, right?
