When it comes to air travel, many travelers are more concerned with their carry-on luggage than they are with their bags that will be handed over to airport staff. These bags, commonly referred to as checked baggage, are just as important, if not more important, than your carry-on luggage. For this reason, there are a number of different factors that you should take into consideration, when packing your bags for your next flight.

One mistake that many travelers make, when it comes to checked baggage, is including prohibited items in their bag. In addition to prohibited items, there have also been instances of travelers trying to hide illegal items in their checked luggage. Although it may seem like a good idea at the time, it isn't. In fact, with today's airport security screening, it is virtually impossible for you to get away with storing prohibited or illegal items inside your checked baggage. This is mostly due to the fact that the screening process has dramatically changed from what it was in the past, say ten years ago.

Random search checks on check baggage by certain airlines are the practice in the past. Most of the times airline officials do these searches based on suspicious actions or reasons. Nowadays all bags are examined including checked luggage. These checks are done quickly but there are instances where further examinations may be carried out. Most of these checks involve searching through your entire things including your clothing pockets and luggage compartments. Extensive searches are done to look for something unusual. In cases where extensive searches are done, a traveler will be likely caught if concealed items such as cigarette lighter is found.

Since your bags will be checked, all of them, you are advised against locking your baggage before heading to the airport. After your bags have been properly screened, some airlines will allow you to replace the locks on your checked baggage, but not all will. For this reason, you may want to reconsider storing expensive items, such as electronic equipment, in your bags. In addition to the possibility of theft, you will find that items packed inside your checked luggage are at a higher risk for being damaged then those that are in your carry-on bags.

When packing your bags, which will be checked at the airport, it is also advised that you carefully pack them. There are a number of items, including sharp objects, which are prohibited from being stored in your carry-on luggage, but those items can be placed in your checked baggage. As previously mentioned, airport security will likely examine those bags. Even during a quick examination, they will rummage through your belongings. For that reason, you are advised to properly package and secure all items that can be considered dangerous, such as those with sharp edges or points. This extra precaution may not only affect your safety, when you to go unpack your bags, but the safety of all airport security officials, especially those screening your luggage.

By taking the time to familiarize yourself with all travel rules, including the airport screening process, you should be able to pack your bags for your next flight, the right way. The wrong way, although you may not necessarily think about it at the time, could have serious consequences.

Cheap luggage doesn't have to mean low-quality suitcases, bags and totes. You can find great prices on many name brand luggage sets such as Hartmann luggage, by shopping online rather than in the mall stores. If you are comfortable with a certain brand or model, this is an affordable way to go!
