With the increased airport security that has been put into place over the last few years, most people that don’t travel a great deal are at a loss as to what is allowed and what isn’t allowed when flying.

Unfortunately, there is not one basic answer to this question, especially if you are traveling out of the country. Each country that you may be planning on visiting will have its own security in place and you must be aware of this or you could find yourself having your possessions taken from you when you are not expecting it.

It is important to research where you are going and find out what the restrictions are. Of course, the internet makes this research quite easy if you know what you are looking for. Each country has their own government pages that you can access to check the aviation restrictions. In addition, each airline has their own restrictions that apply when you fly with them so be sure to check with your airline before you travel.

Do not assume that just because something was allowed six months ago that it still will be. The list of restrictions changes frequently and it is much easier to make a phone call to the airline or look it up on their website before you go than to have to deal with it once you are already at the airport.
