Ah, we’ve all been there. Scanning through your luggage to look for the boarding pass that you were sure was just in your right jacket pocket. You then end up unpacking all your stuff only to realize that it was in another bag all along. But it takes you forever to look for it and you only end up with stares of impatient people standing behind you. You could avoid such situations if you follow the tips that are listed below.
If you consider yourself to be a little clumsy and occasionally forget to carry things you need to have on your person, then you should start by making a list. This list would include all the things that you will need when you are at the airport. Start with the basics – boarding pass, identification, your passport. These are the three basic documents you must have handy when you are about to board your flight. Make sure you pack them well in advance so that you don’t forget them. Take it on a priority.
Pack it Systematically
Everything you plan should be backed by solid reason so, make sure that your packing is equally methodical too. To avoid forgetting ‘where you put your passport’ you can carry your essential documents and some cash in a small pouch that is handy, while you go through airport security. Do the same with all your other stuff, pack your toiletries and other essential stuff that you might need in a small bag which is easy to carry.
Carrying Prohibited Items
This might sound like stating the obvious, but despite knowing the common rules, many travelers pack prohibited items with their carry-ons, most of the time, without realizing it. To avoid such hassle, make sure you cross-check all items included in your luggage and see if you’re carrying anything that might get you in trouble at the airport.
