Protect valuables properly. Never carry your wallet or mobile phone in your pocket or in plain view of others. Rather, use the inside pockets of backpacks and handbags or get a special travel chest bag or fanny pack that you can wear under your clothes.
Do without: Depending on your destination, think twice before putting on that expensive watch or flashy real jewellery. By doing so, you risk attracting the attention of thieves even more.
Listen to your gut feeling: Always take good care of your possessions - especially if you are travelling alone. Don't trust strangers too quickly and be more careful than usual. This can save you from unpleasant holiday experiences.
Protect your luggage: And do so with a combination lock and a luggage belt. The latter signals to thieves from afar that they will probably have a harder time with your luggage than with another.
Safety First is once again the motto here!
The days when you were allowed to take unlimited liquids such as drinks or cosmetics onto the plane through security are long gone. Since 2006, strict regulations have been in place to increase security on board.Liquids must therefore be carried in a separate transparent bag that can be closed. No more than 100 millilitre individual containers may be stowed in it, not exceeding a total volume of one litre. This includes creams, gels, deodorants, mascara, toothpaste and perfume. Excluded from this guideline are medicines, baby food or special food that is needed during the flight. Even if these are liquid or gel-like, they do not have to be packed in a transparent bag.Tip: Be careful! Popular souvenirs such as sauces, jam, olive oil or other country-specific treats also fall under the liquid regulations. Here, too, you should make sure not to exceed 100 millilitres or stow the souvenirs in your checked baggage straight away.
Even during a flight, you don't want to do without some little beauty aids. However, since the 100-millilitre liquid rule applies, not every original product makes it into the resealable transparent flight bag.
Our tip: drugstores and perfumeries sell many cosmetics in mini sizes that are allowed in hand luggage.
Another option: buy a set of travel containers consisting of bottles and jars and fill your product before you start your journey.
The advantage: the containers can be easily cleaned and refilled when they are empty. This saves money and is also good for the environment.
