  • Wallets, belts and mobile phones are to be put in a tray for X-raying. If you enter the body scanner with any of these items, you'll be turned around and requested to remove them.
  • Electronic devices such as tablets, laptops and phones will need to be put through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure to have them within easy reach.
  • Traveling with a new cologne? As long as it contains no more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it's placed in a clear zip-lock bag, you can keep it in your hand luggage.
  • Hiking footwear and other bulky shoes are most often X-rayed. Think about wearing lightweight sneakers instead.
