How to survive the flight to California?
No matter where you’re coming from, flying can be a seamless experience if you prepare well enough. Check out these top travel tips that will help get your California vacation started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Air travel can be a comfortable experience if you’ve got all the right things. First things first, you’ll need toiletry items, such as deodorant and a toothbrush, a fresh change of clothes and a magazine or two. Secondly, make room in your carry-on bag for your electronic gadgets, chargers, your medications and maybe a proper neck pillow as well. Last, but definitely not least, don’t forget to bring your passport, travel papers and your bank cards.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Squeeze all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and hairspray in your checked luggage. Any liquids in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated by security. Sharp or pointed objects, like your beloved Swiss Army knife, and dangerous goods which are explosive or flammable, such as flares, bleaching agents and matches, are also banned.

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort really should be your prime concern when picking what to wear on your flight. Consider your footwear choice carefully too, as swollen feet and ankles are a common occurrence. Shoes which are flat and slightly roomy work well.
  • Caused by sustained periods of inactivity, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that can affect passengers on long-distance flights. But the good news is there are ways to significantly reduce your risk of developing it. Drink plenty of water, get up and wander the aisles as often as you can and wear compression socks to help improve your circulation.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to California?
A little pre-planning before your flight will help make your trip to California quick and painless. We’ve rounded up some handy tips and tricks for a swift journey through security:

  • Have your boarding pass and ID at hand. They’re the first items you’ll be asked to show at security.
  • Time to strip down. Well kind of. Your belt, jacket, keys and other contents of your pockets, like your headphones, will need to go through the X-ray machine. Make your life easier by removing them before your turn arrives.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from the digital world. Your phone, tablet and any other electronic devices must also be sent through the scanner.
  • Any gels or liquids, such as toothpaste or perfume, that you want to bring on board need to be in containers no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They must also all fit inside a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-lock bag.
  • Choosing your footwear wisely can save you a few precious minutes. Boots are often required to be removed and separately scanned. Lightweight sneakers are usually not.
  • Take all prohibited items out of your carry-on bag. If you have any sharp or pointed objects, pack them in your checked suitcase. They won’t be allowed on board.
