                                          What to pack in your hand luggage:

                                          • Travel is fun, but plane journeys can be boring. Bring some music or a book to make the hours fly by. Also consider taking a change of clothes, medications and toiletries in the off chance your suitcase goes AWOL. Of course, don’t forget your ID, wallet and credit cards, phone, phone charger and important trip documents.

                                          Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

                                          • Leave your faithful Swiss Army knife in your checked suitcase, and anything else that’s sharp and capable of causing harm while you’re at it. Other banned items include anything that’s explosive or flammable (think petrol and fireworks). And sorry, your lucky putter has to go in the hold too.
