Nicole Byer has no shortage of travel tips — including a few you might need to be as bold as the Nailed It! host to try for yourself.

"Be weird on planes,” she tells PEOPLE during an exclusive interview for her partnership with Destination Canada,

Essentially, do what you need to in order to feel comfortable, no shame. “Sometimes I'll bring under eye masks, like a weirdo, and put those on, on the plane,” explains the host, who's known for her boisterous attitude and hot takes on the Netflix baking competition series. “Just be weird on planes. Bring [sheet] masks, do you.”

The Good Burger 2 actress also revealed her hack for never checking a bag at the airport and shared her honest opinion about the season that gets the worst rap: winter.

For starters, the host says the key to traveling light is to make full use of every nook and cranny in your luggage.

“I never check a bag and I always have a carry on,” she says. “I tetris things together and there's no part of my suitcase that isn't utilized. I just fit everything really beautifully.”

Another piece of space-saving advice she gives is to always bring a scarf on a plane because it can “double as a blanket on the plane, especially if you have a long one."

A bathing suit is also a packing must whether you’re traveling somewhere cold or hot, “because sometimes hotels will have indoor pools,” and you never know when you might need it, she says. Plus, it doesn’t take up too much space.

While Byer has a number of destinations on her travel bucket list — from the South of France to India — she also stands by her opinion that cold destinations like Canada are worth visiting in the winter.

The star says that she likes winter for several reasons. “You can be outside in the cold and you get to bundle up. I do like sweaters. You also don't have to go outside. You can stay inside and put a fire on. So, winter is a delightful time of the year.”
