June 25, 2010, Newsletter Issue #132: Traveling With Special Items

Tip of the Week

If you're headed home for a birthday, Christmas, wedding or other festive event, you're probably bringing a gift as part of your airline baggage allowance. The Transportation Security Administration warns travelers not to wrap gifts before they fly. Security agents have the right to unwrap your gifts for inspection, which can ruin the wrapping and hold up the line for everyone behind you. Plan to shop for wrapping materials when you get there, or tuck a folded gift bag into your luggage with the unwrapped gift.
