  • Flying with a favorite perfume? As long as it's no larger than 3.4 ounces (161 kilometerslliliters) and it's placed in a clear zip-lock bag, you can keep it with you in your hand luggage.
  • Loosen your shoelaces before entering the body scanner. Depending on the style of shoes you've got on, security may ask you to take them off.
  • Some places have strict biosecurity laws. Consider where you're off to and whether or not you're allowed to travel with fresh fruit.
