Wherever you’re jetting in from, flying can be an enjoyable experience if you’ve prepared well. We’ve put together a list of handy tips that will get your Haridwar escape started on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:
- The trick to having a worry-free travel experience is to pack ahead. So, let’s start with the essentials: passport, travel docs, bank cards and important medications. Next, take on board items that’ll help keep you occupied, like some electronic devices or a juicy novel. You’ll also want to pack your chargers, a quality neck pillow and a pair of earplugs. Finally, be sure to squeeze in toiletries like a toothbrush, cleansing wipes and a clean T-shirt.
Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:
- Squeeze all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner in your checked baggage. Any liquids or gels in your carry-on suitcase larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated. Sharp objects, like your treasured pocket knife, and dangerous goods which are flammable or explosive, such as aerosol cans, spray paint and matches, are also restricted.
What to wear on a flight:
- Comfort should be your number one priority when choosing what to wear on your flight. Consider your choice of footwear carefully too, as swollen feet and ankles are a common side effect of flying. Roomy, closed-toed shoes are your best bet.
- Most travellers have heard about DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clot condition caused by long periods of inactivity. There are many ways to minimize your risk. Wear a quality pair of compression tights or socks, stay well hydrated and keep your legs and feet moving. Wander up and down the aisles of the cabin or perform some simple exercises in your seat.
