Your adventure to Bruges begins the minute you've satisfied the security checks. Here are some handy tips to ensure you pass through quickly:
- Be sure you know the location of your travel ID and boarding pass. You don't want to hold up the line when you're asked to hand them over.
- Bear in mind that metal belt buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you're wearing one, you may be told to take it off before continuing.
- Electronic items such as laptops, tablets and phones are always put through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure to have them within easy reach.
- Deodorant, toothpaste and other toiletry items in gel, liquid or cream form need to be stored in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They also need to fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock bag.
- Construction boots and other cumbersome shoes are usually X-rayed at the security checkpoint. Think about wearing simple sneakers instead.
- Stash any pocketknives or other sharp metal items inside your checked luggage. Security won't permit these in carry-on baggage.
