How to survive the flight to Cape Town?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your journey to Cape Town could be no sweat at all or it could go on forever. We’ve compiled some handy travel tips that will help you start your next great escape on a positive note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The secret to having a stress-free flight experience is to pack in advance. So, let’s start with the basics: passport, travel docs, bank cards and daily medications. Next, take on board items that’ll help pass the time, like some electronic devices or a few magazines. It’s also wise to bring your chargers, a quality neck pillow and a pair of noise-canceling headphones. And of course, don’t forget to pop in toiletries like a toothbrush, facial wipes and a spare set of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Make sure you don’t have a sharp object hiding in your hand luggage. Other prohibited items include flammable or explosive goods, such as bleach and fuel, and gels and liquids in containers with a capacity of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • The narrow aisles of an airplane are no place for a fashion parade. Layer yourself up with comfortable clothes and bring a sweater as it can get chilly in the cabin during long-haul flights. Enclosed, flat shoes are always a good idea too.
  • The condition called deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a risk on long-haul flights. It results from blood clotting due to poor circulation. Doing leg and foot exercises while seated helps to prevent this from occurring. Wearing a quality pair of compression socks can also help.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Cape Town?
The trick is to be organized before you reach the security gate. That way, you’ll be boarding that plane to Cape Town before you know it. Follow these helpful tips and get your vacation off to a fantastic start:

  • Have your ID and boarding pass easily accessible. They’re the first items you’ll be asked for by airport security.
  • Next up, both you and your carry-on bag must be X-rayed. To make the process quick and painless, remove anything that might trigger the alarms. Items like your belt, jacket and earphones need to go through the machine.
  • All electronic devices, including your tablet and phone, are also required to be scanned.
  • Remove all liquids and gels from your hand luggage. They usually need to be sent through the X-ray separately. Each item should be in a container no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit in a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-close bag.
  • There’s a good chance you’ll be asked to remove your shoes for scanning, so wearing slip-on shoes is always a smart idea.
  • Airlines won’t allow any sharp objects in your hand luggage. If you must bring these kinds of items, pack them safely in your checked baggage.
