Liquids 

When it comes to liquids, please note that you can only take each liquid in a volume of no more than 100ml carried in their own individual containers. You cannot put 100ml in a larger vessel unfortunately so do be sure to choose travel-sized containers and bottles. It’s also worth noting you can only carry a total liquid volume of one litre with you. Additionally, all liquids must be placed in a clear plastic bag of 20cm X 20cm, though this can be dependant on your airline so do be sure to check! It’s also necessary that the bag is able to be sealed and closed and that you only have one per person. 

Preparation

When preparing for a holiday, it’s always advisable to plan as much as possible, from finding out what hand luggage allowance each airline provides you, to making sure your bags are packed as efficiently as possible, so if you're in any doubt, do be sure to contact your airline.
