Tripps Travel Network understands that if you are taking a trip and flying to your destination, you will often have to check some luggage. The good news about flying is that you are also allowed to have a carryon bag that you can keep with you on the plane. Some travelers know exactly what they want to put into their carryon while others are not sure.

Tripps Travel Network knows that there are some key things that should be packed in your carryon luggage.

Medications:

Always have your medications with you at all times. When you arrive at your final destination and your luggage is missing in a foreign country then it will be a nightmare.

Valuables:

Always keep your items that have value like a laptop or jewelry and such. Never leave anything that has value in checked baggage again if goes missing or worse could be stolen by airport staff. If you don’t think it happens it does. So be safe rather than sorry.
