Are you planning your next trip on an airplane? If so then the most important thing that you can do is make a travel checklist. By making this checklist you know that you will not forget anything when you are packing.
There are some things that you should put into your carry-on bag when you are preparing to travel. However, that are certain items that you will not be allowed to bring on the plane with you. When you are making your travel checklist, make sure that the following are on the list:
A clean change of clothing
This is important if your luggage for some reason happens to get lost.Toiletries (face soap. shampoo, conditioner, contact solution, deodorant, a toothbrush, and toothpaste) in no more than 3 oz. containers, put into a 1-quart size see through bag.
By making sure this is one your travel checklist, you will be able to refresh yourself when you get off the flight, whether it be on a layover or at your final destination ID.
If you do not have any form of picture identification, with the name matching the ticket (this can be tricky, if you have just gotten married and have not changed your license yet–in this case, bring your marriage certificate also) you will not be able to get through the gates and you will not be able to catch your flight.
You will need to take into account that since May 2009 (or on some airlines earlier) you will have to pay $15-$25 (each way) to check your luggage that you cannot bring on the plane. When budgeting for your trip make sure that this extra amount will be into your travel checklist. This way you will have all the money you need for the trip that you have planned.
When you are making your travel checklist make sure that when you are following it, you put any items that you will need immediately (prescription medicines, money, etc) into your carry-on luggage. This way you make sure that you are feeling safe and have the items that will keep you safe on the plane.
