Venice bans wheeled suitcases – Cabin Max can help


Image Credit: Bimzz Magazine

Cabin Max to the rescue!

Our Metz, Oxford, Barcelona+, and Lyon+ bags are only a few of the many bags to get you from A to B in the city that has banned wheels.

What’s the story?

Venice has called quits on wheeled luggage. Why? They’re too noisy and causing damage.

Of those who have visited Venice, you will know that the winding alleys and streets are, although pretty, not built for the 30 million tourists it sees each year.

To combat the damage caused by plastic and rubber wheels along Venice’s aging bridges and paths (not to mention the irritating sound of a case on cobbles) the City council have banned them from May 2015, fining those who ignore this rule with a whopping €500 fine.

As quoted by the Independent, ‘City official Maurizio Dorigo said: “Hopefully a company will start producing suitcases with inflatable tyres. We’ve got till next May. Someone will be able to design and sell them by then.” ‘

We’re not sure inflatable wheels will take off… so we have a better idea. Carry your luggage on your back.

The Perfect Bag

Here’s our list of the best Cabin Max bags to sidestep the new ban:


Measuring 55x40x20cm, this lightweight backpack can be carried on your bag and has an impressive capacity of 44 litres! Now available in 22 colours!

This sophisticated 50x40x20cm bag is guaranteed to stay with you in the cabin when you fly Easyjet and comes with zipped compartments inside to keep your things super organised. Also available: The Oxford Backpack and Trolley!




This trolley and backpack is perfect for those who prefer wheels but need to adapt for the streets of Venice. Compact at 50x40x20cm, you’ll still avoid those annoying luggage check in fees but have the choice between wheels or shoulder straps.


New colours available!

The zip away compartment hides your backpack straps and inside you’ll find a laptop/tablet compartment for a device up to 15”. For those travelling before heading to Venice, the Lyon+ is the best of both worlds.

Flight delay compensation – Know your rights.




As a regular holiday-goer or commuter, you have to be pretty lucky to avoid a flight delay.

Some see it as an extra hour or two at the bar or even a bit of extra time perusing the shops, however, most see it as empty hours eating into your holiday or a frustrating obstacle between you and your much missed bed.

It has been known that in some cases when you arrive at the airport to find there’s a delay, your flight hasn’t even left its destination.

As irritating as this is, you could be eligible for compensation.

The EC regulation 261/2004 was introduced recently meaning that if your flight was delayed more than 3 hours or cancelled, you could claim money back.


Here are the things you need to know;

1. Providing you have adequate evidence, you can claim for a delay up to 6 years ago

2. You could be entitled to between £190-£480

3. The regulation only covers EU flights

4. You can only claim if the delay or cancellation was caused by;

-The crew or pilot being late

-The airline missed the deadline for documentation

- Component failure or general wear and tear to the aircraft

- Flight was cancelled due to underbooking

5. You cannot claim for any of the following;

- Bad Weather

- Safety issues

- Political action 

- Air traffic control decisions, insisting the flight is unsafe for departure due to unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances (e.g Volcanic Ash)

Ryanair Small Carry On Bag 20x35x20cm – The Cabin Max Arezzo Fits


arezzo jpeg




Ryanair changed their rules. They now let you take an additional bag to your 55x40x20 hand luggage. With a strict size allowance of 20x35x20cm, there wasn’t much out there that would fit such dimensions other than the carrier bag that has your meal deal in it.

That’s where Cabin Max come in. We’re all for taking the maximum allowance and really getting your moneys worth, so we designed the Cabin Max Arezzo to fit the 20x35x20cm bag allowance. This is the first bag to be made specifically to cater to Ryanair’s second bag policy.

This bag could revolutionise the way you travel. Here’s 5 reasons why;

1. The Arezzo measures exactly 20x35x20cm – maximising your space

2. There is no weight allowance for a second bag so rather than encroach on the 10kg hand luggage allowance,  the Arezzo can be packed with heavier electronic items, liquids and also keeps your important documents nearby

3. With stricter security searches, having your electronics (that have to be switched on) and your liquids to hand means less time in security and more time enjoying your journey

4. It fits perfectly underneath the seat in front of you. No waiting for the seat belt sign to be switched off before you reach for your bag

5. The over the shoulder or cross body strap keeps your hands free to maneuver your other bag

The Cabin Max Arezzo is THE ultimate second bag for Ryanair. For just £15, save yourself the hassle and take a bag guaranteed to fit.






New Airport Security Measures July 2014 – What It Means For You.





Due to inside intelligence, those boarding international flights between Europe and the U.S are being exposed to more intrusive security checks. Passengers now must switch on any electronic devices when passing through security due to new information about the development of undetectable bombs.

It has also come to light that random checks will be put into place from 09/07/2014. Planes shall be chosen randomly for spot checks at the gate. Before boarding the plane you could be asked to switch on all electronic devices again.

Passing through security and potentially boarding your plane will now become a slower process. Make sure you arrive well ahead of the two or three hour window you are given before your flight departure and pack your electronic devices last, making them easily accessible when you’re asked to produce them.

For the latest security updates, we’ve listed the top 10 U.K airports below with links to their security information to help you prepare.

1. London Heathrow Airport

2. London Gatwick Airport

3. Manchester Airport

4. London Stansted Airport

5. Edinburgh Airport

6. London Luton Airport

7. Birmingham Airport

8. Glasgow International Airport

9. Bristol Airport 

10. Newcastle Airport 

Safe travels,

The Blue and Pink Bear bags are back!



The long wait is over…the blue and pink bear bags are back in stock!


Joined by their orange, green and purple spotty friends, these bags are the perfect pull along trolley for any child 4+. Get your children as excited as you are about holidays and allow them to share it with a cuddly friend.

Airlines allow every passenger with an individual boarding pass a free hand luggage allowance, so ensure you take everything you need by including your child. Measuring 50x34x20cm, the bear bags fit within the airline restrictions and also give tiny tots a sense of independence.

If (or perhaps when) they get tired or the novelty wears off, the extendable handle can be pulled along by yourself. When purchasing the new purple spotty bag, its integrated backpack straps make it easier for you to carry it for them while pulling your own bag.

Providing their sellout status earlier this year, you better get yours fast!

Bon Voyage!

Please note: Bears are not included with the bag… Leaving room for your personal favourite!


#Carryonshame – Could this hashtag be about you? Not with a Cabin Max.



*Featured bag: The Cabin Max Barcelona+ (Backpack and trolley Multi-Functional Bag)


The latest trend on twitter has received mixed responses on the web. The travel editor Spud Hilton started the hashtag  to highlight traveller’s ever relaxing attitude to carry on bag restrictions.

Travellers across the globe have been sharing their photos that appear to shame those who don’t stick to these rules. It has brought to light the importance of staying within cabin restrictions, not only to avoid expensive check in costs but also to keep your fellow traveller content.

Here at Cabin Max we work hard developing and tailoring our bags to your needs. Our aim is for you, our customers and world wanderers, to carry as much as you can while staying within the dimensions of an airline’s carry on restrictions to avoid costly fees.

Our carry on bags are flight approved and ready for action. Rest assured that with a Cabin Max, you won’t be shamed.

Happy Travels,

The Cabin Max Team.

Cabin Max Capital – Flight Approved Cabin Bag For Easyjet and Ryanair – Easter Offer £19

Whether you’re a sun worshipper, city explorer or love to immerse yourself in other cultures, you love a holiday.

And so you should. You work hard and deserve a break, so you might aswell make it somewhere far away from responsibility and worries.

These days, a holiday doesn’t have to be too pricey either. The wonder of the internet has allowed us to compare prices of hotels and hostels and even find the cheapest of flights too.

It’s all sorted then… or so you think.

Then WHAM. They hit you with the bag fees. You want to charge me HOW MUCH to take my flip flops and suncream on a little vacation? Come to think of it, Scarborough has had less rain this year…

Stop right there. Don’t abandon the holiday dream too soon. There’s always Cabin Max.

As Cabin Max fans will know, the Barcelona backpack measures in at 50x40x20cm making it guaranteed to fly with Easyjet and Ryanair. However, we do have another trick up our sleeve.

capital rome ebaycapital

Introducing the Capital. Often found in the shadow of the Barcelona, the Capital is available in Rome (Green) and Paris (Blue) editions and has exactly the same dimensions as the Barcelona, 50x40x20cm. This makes the Capital suitable for budget airlines too.


With one large compartment, a medium compartment with internal organiser and additional front zip pocket, it supersedes the Barcelona in terms of organisation and packing potential. If you include the Wash Bag and Packing Cubes too, you’ll spend less time unpacking at your destination and more time sourcing the best sun lounger/ cultural hotspot.

When faced with the budget airline 10kg challenge, the Capital is lightweight at just 0.7kg. So you’ll be taking more clothes than bag with you.

Keep your holiday cheap. Don’t fork out for expensive check in charges. Reduce your load and take the Capital carry on, because let’s be honest, the hula skirt should be left at home.

What makes it even more appealing is that it’s been reduced to £19 for the Easter holidays! Available from 15/04/14 until midnight 21/04/14.

When the words ‘travel’ and ‘kids’ are used in the same sentence, it can often have a frustrated tone.

This doesn’t have to be the case.

Don’t ignore the journey…make it part of the fun!

Get the kids excited about the idea of travel with the Cabin Max Bear Bag. Equipped with adjustable underpants, the bag is ready for a favourite bear, doll or toy. Let the kids imagination grow as they take their little companion along with them on an exciting adventure.

Perfectly sized, the bear bag measures 50x34x20 and comes with extendable handle and wheels, perfect for pulling around by a pint sized person!

Its dimensions mean it can travel with you as hand luggage on Easyjet and Ryanair, so it’s a great way to avoid those extra costs! Available in Blue, Orange, Green and Pink, there’s a bag for even the fussiest of children.

Product Spotlight: Cabin Max Ibiza

Ibiza is a place of sunshine, music and a general care-free attitude. Perfect then for us to name our pack-away backpack after.

Unlike a standard backpack, the Cabin Max Ibiza is a no fuss fold away backpack that’s lightweight and easy to carry.

Weighing just 0.15kg, the whole bag folds away into the front pocket and is secured with a zip seal. Featuring a loop attachment, the bag can be fixed to another bag and used as a lighter alternative when you’ve reached your destination, such as the supermarket, festival or beach!

Made from durable ripstop fabric, the bag will endure most tests. Including one large compartment for your things, the Ibiza also features a front pocket and zip pocket, adjustable shoulder straps, two bottle holders and can carry up to 22 litres.

Not bad for a little bag.

A review that sums up the adaptability of the bag  comes from a Cabin Max customer Jane S;

‘What a great idea – folds up really small, and works fine as a backpack. Will be useful in all sorts of situations – not all of them travel related.’

Available at for a bargain £9.00, the bag now also comes free with any order over £25.00 when purchased from the official Cabin Max website during this month (March 2014).
