Jet2, Ryanair, Easyjet passengers who pack plug adaptors in suitcases 'warned'

A travel expert has issued a warning to passengers who pack certain items in their luggage ahead of summer holidays. Jet2, Ryanair, Easyjet and TUI holidaymakers have been warned over packing a number of popular items in their luggage and suitcases.

TikTok user and content creator @thepointsguy warned over the items you should “never put in your checked bag, regardless of how short your flight is”. Passengers have been warned over keeping prescriptions in their luggage.

“You may be able to get a doctor to call in your prescription, but that becomes trickier if it’s a weekend or a holiday or if your medication doesn’t allow for refills before the previous prescription runs out," he explained.

He also recommended you don’t put your electronics in your checked luggage. “While most are trustworthy, not everyone is," he warned, saying that there’s a “risk” it could be stolen by airline staff or crew on the ground who deal with bags, suitcases and luggage.

He said the “same goes for jewellery and cash” or “items with significant personal value” if you're flying out. Anything that would cause you “financial or emotional loss” should be kept on your person if possible, too, he went on to warn passengers.

“Daily necessities” should also be put in your hand luggage, and he added: “Ideally you’d have a change of clothes, toiletries, and glasses or contact lenses if you need them." The warning comes as more and more people leave the UK on summer holidays.

“Plug adapters and high-quality suncream” are also things that you may want to have on you too, he said. In reply to the warning, which has gone viral after being widely praised, a TikTok user wrote: “Everything important goes into my carry-on. Meds, contacts, electronics in particular.”

And a second said: “I only have clothing & shoes in checked bags. Everything else is in my carry-on.”
