  • Be sure you know the whereabouts of your travel ID and boarding pass. You don't want to hold up the line when you're asked to present them.
  • Take off your shoes and belt before arriving at the airport security checkpoint. Items like these are not allowed in the body scanner.
  • Make sure your electronic devices and laptop are within easy reach. These items need to be sent through the X-ray machine in separate bins.
  • Flying with a favorite cologne or perfume? As long as it's no larger than 3.4 ounces (161 kilometerslliliters) and it's stored in a clear resealable plastic bag, you can keep it with you in your carry-on luggage.
  • Airport security personnel may ask you to take off your shoes for the body scanner. Wear a pair that slip off easily. There's nothing more tiresome than having to do up your laces over and over again.
  • Some destinations have stringent quarantine laws. Consider where you're going to and whether or not it's permissible to travel with fresh fruit.
