Most people tell you when packing to put everything that you want to take on your bed, and then halve it. You’ll have a much less stressful trip when travelling light, especially when travelling to multiple destinations on a round the world airfare.
In recent years, the airlines have become increasingly more stringent with baggage weight limits, meaning it’s really in your best interest to keep your luggage as light as possible. Most economy round the world tickets have a baggage of allowance of 1 x23kg checked bag, and 1x 7kg carry-on bag. Business class passengers have a baggage allowance of 2 x 23kg check in bags and 1 x 7kg carry-on. These rules do vary from airline to airline, so check with your Airfare Consultant and read the rules on your ticket before taking off.
There are restrictions to any liquids, aerosols, gels, and powders that passengers want to take in their carry-on baggage which must comply with Government and Airport regulations.
As a general rule, liquids must be in containers of 100 millilitres/grams or less and all the containers must be sealed in a transparent, plastic bag. For more information please see the Australian Government Home Affairs website plus check the restrictions for the countries you are travelling to.
You may still carry on board prescription medicines, baby products and non-prescription medicines that you need for the flight, however proof of need may be required.
When you get to the screening point, you will have to surrender any liquids, aerosols or gels greater than 100ml/g that you still have with you, including duty free.
The most common mistake made with carry on liquids is the container size must be less than 100ml, not just what is inside the container. Many deodorant cans are 110g/ml so be sure to buy travel appropriate toiletries if you plan to take them onboard with you. These restrictions do not apply to checked-in luggage.
