What you can't take with you on your trip

These items are classed as dangerous goods, and are not allowed on aircraft:

  • firearms or replica weapons, including toys

  • locking blade knives or other implements with more than three-inch blades

  • explosives, flares, fireworks, toy gun caps or non-safety matches

  • gases of any type, including compressed cylinders, tear gas, mace or camping gas

  • flammable materials such as paints, thinners, lighter fuel, petrol or fire lighters

  • poisons, weedkillers or insecticides

  • corrosives, including car batteries or mercury

  • irritating or radioactive materials

  • laser pens.

If you carry any of these items with you they are liable to be confiscated at the airport and given to the handling agent or security personnel. It will then be your responsibility to arrange for the safe return of the items when you come back from your holiday.

What you can take with you

You can take the following items onto the aircraft:

  • wines and spirits in containers up to five litres

  • medicines or toiletries (including aerosols) in containers up to 500ml or 500g each - up to a total of two litres or two kilograms

  • gas-powered hair curlers (one per person), as long as the safety cap is fitted at all times (but refills cannot be taken with you)

  • safety matches or one lighter, which uses absorbed liquid or liquefied gas fuel (but refills cannot be taken with you).

And if you plan to carry any unusual items for medical needs or sporting activities, contact the airport in advance. There may be a charge for the carriage of some items. As a general rule you should carry any medication in your hand luggage but all other items should be packed and placed in the aircraft hold.

Using telephones in Florida - Top tips!

The US telephone system is different than that of most other countries, if you don't know what to look for, you can spend a lot of money on telephone fees. If necessary to make a call from a public phone box use a credit card as opposed to coins, if this isn't possible use a call box owned by a major service provider like Southern/Pacific Bell or Bell Atlantic as many phones operated by private concessionaries charge exorbitant rates.
Telephone cards are also available in the US they are sold in many gas stations, drug stores at at newstands and come in denominations of $5, $10 or $20.
