If you can get 5 more people to sign up, you can have a free return flight (see conditions for dates and destinations and by what date you have to book, from what I've seen it's not too bad... needs to be to/from the UK though).



Hope this doesn't offend anyone as spamming/advertising, if it does go and shout at me smile

Got any links for free ferries? smile



Sorry... ferries aren't much use to me at the mo, but if I ever hear of a free one I'll let you know wink hug

Shame about the camcorder... I'm still undecided whether I should take my camera in checked in luggage or not frown I guess that with the new regulations the airlines will have to change their guidelines on what they insure in checked in luggage. And what they supply in case a plane is late and you have to stop over, or when the luggage gets lost.

Posted:Yeah, i think this will be the big issue, especially with the insurance companies. I have seperate insurance for my laptop (which i also planned to take with me) but it's void if it doesn't go as hand luggage, because then it counts as "unattended" shrug so definately not going to risk it. It also doesn't cover acts of terrorism... so presumably if it's "unattended" as a result of a terrorist threat, it's not covered either!

Maybe the best thing for you is to get a cheap as chips disposable camera, at least until they sort it all out. The travel section in the observer also suggested cable ties on your hold luggage so you can tell if is tampered with... although doesn't stop it getting lost.

And the camera's not really something I HAVE to take, I've just become used to having it with me when seeing nice places. Ah well.

What DOES annoy me is that I'm allowed to take enough medication "for the duration of the flight". But what if the luggage gets lost? It has happened to me 3 times so far, and it always took about 2 days to be delivered! And you're not supposed to put medicines in your checked in luggage either.

Silly preliminary thingies. I'll probably just call the airport 1 or 2 days in advance and ask what's the best thing to do.

Posted:I'm sure you can just go up to the gate when you check in your check on luggage and ask. If they're cranky, put it in the luggage. Or maybe you can put it in a special box. I did that for a pocket knife and they handed it back to me after the flight.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.
