The ultimate way to pack light, naked holidays are becoming a real consideration with a recent poll showing that 2% of Skyscanner have booked a nakation, just to avoid paying hefty baggage charges!


With no bulky clothes, packing for a naked holiday is simple. Just remember ample supplies of sun block! Cheap flights comparison site reveals the top places to strip off.
