WHAT TO PACK:

DON’T FORGET THE ESSENTIALS…

  • Power Adaptor - Have you invested in a power adaptor specific for your destination?
  • Medication – If you require prescription medication, ensure you pack it in your carry-on luggage. It’s a good idea to have a letter from your GP, stating the name of the medicine, how much you are taking, and that it is for your personal use.
  • Prohibited items – Make sure you don’t pack any prohibited items in your holiday goodies. Check here: www.avsec.govt.nz/travellers/2/what-cant-i-take-on-the-plane/
  • LAGs Bag – For international travel be sure to pack your carry-on liquids, aerosols & gel products in a clear zip-lock bag. Maximum size you can carry on is 100mls or risk them being kept at Customs.

  • Any cash handy? Have you converted some cash into the local currency for your arrival? It’s always nice to have a little cash for food & beverage or the taxi when you arrive.
