What you pack, as well as how much you pack, will be largely determined by the type, destination and length of trip you take. But we can help you through the frustrations of planning with the following, useful checklist on the bare necessities.
*Since September 11, 2001, airlines have imposed strict regulations on the sizes and the amount of luggage passengers may check. Travelers who fail to check size requirements before their flights may be charged with hundreds of dollars in fines in order to bring the bag on board the aircraft. To avoid such issues, consult with your travel expert in our office or with the individual airlines’ Web sites or Customer Service line. And now the new guidelines for packing checked baggage, once the US Transportation Security Admininstration agents begin screening all bags, are that bags should NOT be locked, and food and undeveloped film should NOT be packed in checked luggage. Pack footwear on top of other items in checked bags.
