• Overpacking tops the list of biggest travel mistakes.
  • Whenever possible, avoid checking your bag. Carry-on luggage is typically not lost or damaged by the airline, and you may find that one piece is all you’ll need. You’ll also save valuable time reaching your destination.
  • At some airports, carry-on baggage may be more restricted.
  • Additional limits may be placed on carry-on bags because of aircraft stowage capacity.
  • Limits may be imposed after the boarding process has begun.
  • All checked baggage will be screened by the TSA.
  • Only use a lock that is identified as a “TSA-recognized locking mechanism.” For more information, visit the TSA Web site www.tsa.gov.
  • Your name and address must be on the outside of your baggage. Name tags are available at all airport baggage check-in locations.
  • Put your name and address on the inside of your baggage too.
  • Remove straps, hangers and protruding objects to avoid damage to your bag.
  • Don’t over pack. Bulging bags are not sufficiently constructed to support excess weight and may split during transport.
  • Do not pack fragile items inside your checked luggage.
