The Essentials

Packing Tips from Peter Greenberg

It’s now time for some basic, common sense packing tips.


If you’re like me, you believe there are two kinds of airline bags — carry-on and lost.


So it all gets down to preemptive packing. Always pack a change of clothing in your carry-on bag.


And if you’re checking bags, take photos of all the items. Remember, bag thieves don’t steal bags. They steal individual items from bags.


And last but not least, make sure if you’re on connecting flights on connecting airlines that your initial airline will actually transfer your bags at your connecting cities. It’s a real problem. And you might end up paying bag fees for two flights, not to mention having to get your bag at the connecting airport.
