    Probably the easiest way would indeed be having a spare low-g string at hand and swap the g-strings as needed. Other than that: take two ukes.
    And consider switching to concert size for travel

    Where in the song does it say "return to low G" and what song are you referring too?

    Not Return to low G, Tune to low G. My bad.

    In The Hawaiian Ukulele Songbook it says "Tune 4th string to low G" at the beginning of a song, making it sound like, at least to me, you can go from one to the other without swapping ukes or strings

    Thanks for clarifying, I'm a little slow on the uptake sometimes. Doesn't sound like there's an easy answer beyond taking two ukes. Maybe a double uke bag like this?
