Packing rules for flying have only been so important since 9/11 and the spate of real and pseudo terrorist incidents that followed it. When once we only used to have to worry about sharp objects and the spare gas canister for our curling tongs nowadays we have to give more thought to the packing regulations.

You should always pack a small travel alarm clock (your hotel may not offer a wake-up service), hair dryer with suitable adapter (if going overseas), a brush, camera and of course a toothbrush.
