We're proponents of living simply and traveling simply. According to the TSA, that's the best rule of thumb for summer travel.
Tips for traveling like a pro:
- Drop the heavy metal: Take metal items such as keys, loose change, mobile phones, pagers and personal digital assistants (PDAs) out of your pockets. Put these in your carry-on, or in a plastic bag.
- Liquid Love - Know the rules for traveling with liquids. Use TSA compliant travel cases, like GoToob to make packing easier.
- Safety First - Secure your luggage with TSA locks. These locks are recognized by personnel and can be opened easily(with a TSA key) if they need to search your luggage.
