Baggage: Size & Weight Matters
Limit your bags to one large bag as this is the limit to our our porterage service and one carry-on. Typically airlines will allow 2 checked pieces. To avoid airline surcharges, these may be no more than 62 linear inches (a combination of length, width & depth) and weigh a maximum of 50 lbs each for domestic air. International carriers allow 75 lbs per bag.

1. Choose your vacation luggage carefully. While togetherness is great, it's advisable for each of you to pack at least one bag of your own for clothes and toiletries.

2. Tip: Select vacation bags with wheels. Even garment bags come on rollers these days, so there's no need for anyone to wrench his back before the big night. And you won't feel so guilty including everything you'd like to pack.

3. Pack right for the weather. You wouldn't carry the same things on a safari vacation as you would on a trip to the tropics or Europe.

4. Roll, rather than fold, vacation garments. It saves packing space and also can cut down on wrinkles.
5. Make sure your name, home, and vacation address are on a luggage tag and somewhere inside the bag you pack as well.

6. Pack your carry-on carefully: Pieces do get lost. Travel with one complete change of clothes, vital medicines, and sundries you can't live without in your carry-on. (per new TSA rules)

7. Know what size carry-on your airline permits, and how many pieces are permitted on board.

8. If you're on a budget, pack things like sunscreen, sunglasses, and skin lotion rather than planning to buy them at a vacation resort, where they're often expensive.

9. Make a photocopy of all your credit cards that shows numbers clearly. Pack a copy for yourself and leave the original with a trustworthy friend. Notify your bank you are traveling abroad to prevent any problems using your ATM card.

10. Make a photocopy of your passport and keep it on you.

New Airport Security Measures

The U.S. Transportation Administration has introduced new airport security rules in light of the recent announcement of a thwarted terror plot in Britain. The TSA has posted answers to some frequently asked questions on their website and will continue to update them as measures evolve. Here are the major changes that affect travelers:

At U.S. Airports:

No liquids or gels of any kind will be permitted in carry-on baggage. Such items must be in checked baggage. This includes all beverages, shampoo, suntan lotion, creams, tooth paste, hair gel, and other items of similar consistency.

Exceptions: Baby formula and medicines, which must be presented for inspection at the checkpoint. Prescription medicine that matches the passenger's name is permitted. Essential non-prescription medicines such as insulin are permitted.

Beverages purchased in the boarding area, beyond the checkpoint, must be consumed before boarding because they will not be permitted onboard the aircraft.

Laptop computers, cell phones and other electronic items ARE still allowed on board.

Arrival time: Passengers should consult their individual airline, but the TSA recommends arriving at least two hours in advance of flight time. Again, keep in mind that if it is necessary to remove liquids at the checkpoint, time will be added to the process.

Additional bag searches: There will be more hand searches of bags at the checkpoint and a bag check at the gate immediately prior to boarding the aircraft.

Note: Passengers traveling from the United Kingdom to the United States will be subject to a more extensive screening process.
