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
