What’s in the bag


The star in the transit sky, is the tote bag – it’s the companion to share your journey and service your needs. It holds all your must-haves.

  • Size matters. It should be roomy enough for your tablet, cosmetics and other personal items
  • Light-weight with handles or a strap to wear over the shoulder and be comfortable in the crook of your arm
  • An inner pouch, preferably zipped to protect valuables
  • A zipped top to secure items through security screening

For the body

  • Before checking in moisturize your entire body with your favourite lotion and take a small top up supply in your tote. Apply regularly especially on exposed areas like hands and feet. Diligence will be well rewarded.
