Packing & Travel Wise Tips

Do lock your luggage, but buy a TSA (Transportation Security Administration) approved lock.
If airport security personnel need to inspect your checked bag, they no longer need to cut your locks or force the bag open and risk damaging it. Travel Sentry® locks allow TSA to open your locks and re-lock your bags, sending them quickly on their way. Locking your luggage ensures you are protected from the liability of anyone smuggling contraband in your luggage.

Don’t confuse the function of an adapter with that of a converter.
An adapter allows you to plug a North American appliance (hair dryers and irons, etc.) into an outlet abroad. An adapter does not convert the current to make it compatible with your appliance. That is the role of a converter. Most adapter/converter kits feature a converter that adjusts common foreign electrical currents with 4 coded adapter plugs that correspond with countries worldwide. Look for a compact converter/adapter kit that includes its own convenient travel case and an easy-to-use electrical reference chart for most countries around the world. It is recommended that for computers you look under laptop gear for a suitable adapter.
