Honeymoon Luggage: The Key Essentials
Pack your own cases and make sure that no-one interferes with it prior to boarding the plane (it is also wise to note that when asked ‘did you pack your own luggage’ at the check-in desk that you don’t joke about it – you don’t want a strip-search merely because of a quip that was taken the wrong way!)
Make sure that you take hand luggage with you and pack your important documents in an easily accessible place. Passports, tickets, boarding passes etc. should also be in convenient easy reach and secure from prying hands but easily accessible to you.
Remove all sharp objects from your hand luggage and put them in your check-in luggage. A list of items is clearly displayed at all airports but so you are aware in advance, the current list forbids you from carrying on board scissors, razor blades, Swiss Army knives/cards, tweezers, hypodermic needles unless required for medical reasons, cutlery and knitting needles. More obscure things that people try to take on board but are not allowed to do so include tools, toy/replica guns, catapults, sporting bats, billiard, snooker or pool cues and darts.
Do not pack any valuables, money, or fragile items into check-in baggage. Keep them with you at all times, ideally on your person (in the case of money or jewellery) or in your hand luggage.
Assuming there is still space(!), put heavy objects like books, mp3 players and cameras in your hand luggage. This really helps if you are close to the weight limit and also means that they are more safe and secure.
Do laundry a few days before you go so everything will washed and freshly ironed before the Big Day and ready to go come the day of the Honeymoon.
Keep an inventory of everything that you are taking.
