Don’t let your luggage become “emotional baggage”!

When you check-in for your flight, it would be really nice to think that your baggage will be going with you!

Here’s 7 tips that just might help your baggage to get there.


1/- Baggage labels: Make sure your baggage wears its ID like a fashion statement—inside and out! If it gets lost, it should at least have its destination address handy. Who knows, maybe it’ll make some new friends on its journey! Clearly include your name, email, phone number, home address and destination address.


2/- Baggage allowances: Keep an eagle eye on those baggage allowances—they’re as changeable as the weather and as varied as a box of chocolates. Check the airline’s website for the latest scoop. You wouldn’t want your suitcase to feel like it’s on a rollercoaster ride!


3/- Paid baggage allowances: Don’t let your baggage be caught off guard! Many fares now come with a surprise extra fee for checked bags. It’s like the baggage is getting VIP treatment—very inflated prices! Remember, it’s cheaper to pay online, so don’t let your baggage become a high roller at the airport.


4/- What you can & can’t take in your baggage: Leave the sharp objects and toy weapons out of your carry-on—it’s not a costume party up there! If you’re caught trying to sneak them through security, they might just get a one-way ticket to the confiscation bin. Talk about an unexpected journey! Ever wondered what happens to confiscated items at security? Some airports have auctions for unclaimed items, leading to some unusual and quirky finds!


5/- Liquids, aerosols or gels (L.A.G): Keep your liquids and gels in containers smaller than a mini cupcake (100ml or less), all packed neatly in a re-sealable transparent plastic bag (approximately 20cm x 20cm or less) like they’re off to a spa day. You wouldn’t want them causing a scene at security—they’re not exactly the strong and silent type!


6/- Electronic devices: Make sure your gadgets are juiced up and ready to impress at airport check-in. If they can’t power on, it’s like they’re playing hide and seek with the security folks, and nobody likes a sore loser! Keep those batteries charged or risk being left behind like yesterday’s news. Travellers to the UK, USA and Canada may be required to demonstrate that their electronic and battery powered devices switch on at airport check-in, including telephones, laptops, tablets and e-books. This means charging your devices before arriving at the airport.  If you can’t demonstrate that you can turn the device on, you will not be allowed to board your flight, unless you choose to leave the device behind. These regulations are specified by the authorities of the three countries. There are no facilities to keep devices in storage.


7/- Lithium batteries: Please note that all Lithium batteries, or devices containing Lithium batteries MUST be taken in your HAND LUGGAGE. Keep those lithium batteries close like a security blanket. They’re the lifeblood of your gadgets, after all, and we wouldn’t want them feeling neglected in the cargo hold. Plus, they might get lonely down there without your company!


Airport security has seen it all, from pet turtles hidden in pockets to live lobsters in carry-ons. Remember, honesty is the best policy!



Oh my gosh, we all had a fantastic day out. Thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to like all those weird and wonderful snacks during the "Curious Food Train" activity, and didn’t think they would all participate. The staff all keep thanking us for such a great day. Looking forward to next years event!
