YouTuber Sabina has revealed her clever airport hack for bagging four items for free

In the video, she explains how passengers should never pay for items that can be snapped up free-of-charge.

She said: “Number one is magazines – you can find them for free all over the airports.”

She then showed a complimentary display stand of magazines inside an airport terminal where she picked up copies of Vanity Fair and GQ.

She continued: “Never pay for water, just bring a refillable bottle.”

It may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many passengers waste money by purchasing water bottles at airports.

Take the empty bottle through airport security, then fill it up on the other side.

Sabina also suggested holidaymakers get freebies in duty free by loading up on samples of expensive beauty products rather than paying full price.

And for those looking to smell fresh on their holiday, she recommends buying the perfume online as it’s often cheaper – and simply spritzing yourself in the airport store.

The video has been liked over 1,000 times, with one person writing: “Where were these tips last time I was travelling!”

Passengers looking to avoid costly roaming charges can also use Wifi for free in airports.

Usually travellers only need to enter a few personal details before they can start surfing the web.

But don’t log into any sites that require you to enter a password, because free public Wifi connections are not always secure.

Holidaymakers can also nab free luggage tags at check in desks too, just avoid putting your home address on the label as this puts your house at risk while you’re away.

An expert told USA Today: “Don’t list your home address on luggage tags. Play it safe by using electronic luggage tags, or by listing only your basic contact information on a luggage tag.”
