At the airport
* Don't carry parcels for anyone else, even
if you know the person and what's inside the parcel. Some
countries take a dim view of this practice.
* Checked luggage x-ray scanners ruin undeveloped
film - new or exposed. It's okay to check in your camera
gear, but get your film out of your luggage and carry it
with you. Standard x-ray screening of hand luggage won't
harm your holiday memories.
* At the airport (or anywhere else when you're
travelling) have the straps of your carry-on luggage wrapped
around an arm or a leg, then they won't disappear without
your knowledge. Have large bags touching your leg so you
know if they're moved.
* If you're taking a cell phone overseas
make sure it's turned off on the plane. They can interfere
with the navigation system and you could end up in court.
* If you don't want to stand around in an
airport for hours trying to find transport to your destination
and you don't want to spend a fortune, a bus or airport
shuttle is the way to go. Most large airports have them.
Make sure you're at the right bus stop.
