Security will likely pick up on goods which are not allowed and they could be confiscated, so the experts at StressFreeCarRental.com say it is worth taking extra time before packing and traveling to the airport to familiarise yourself with what you can take with you.

Many items have to go in the airplane’s hold as opposed to the ‘carry on baggage’ with the passenger so it is important to learn what the regulations are.

A spokesman for StressFreeCarRental.com said: “When planning ahead for a short or long haul flight it is well worth looking at what items are banned from travel in your carry on baggage for different countries.

“We have compiled some interesting examples of items which you can’t take or where there are specific rules around boarding a plane with them. If in doubt, make contact with the airport in advance and check out their website to find out what is allowed.”

Here is a guide to some of the items banned by airlines, or where special measures are in place.
