Devices containing lithium metal batteries or lithium ion batteries, such as smartphones, tablets, cameras and laptops, should be kept in carry-on baggage.

Spare (uninstalled) lithium metal batteries and lithium ion batteries, portable rechargers, electronic cigarettes and vaping devices are prohibited in checked baggage. They must be carried with the passenger in carry-on baggage.

Batteries must be of a type that meets the requirements of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part III, subsection 38.3. The maximum watt-hour (Wh) rating for lithium ion batteries is 100Wh, and the maximum lithium metal content for lithium metal batteries is 2grams. 

Batteries with higher ratings or content may require operator approval or be prepared and carried as cargo in accordance with the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations.

Baggage equipped with a lithium battery, other than lithium button cells, must have the battery removed if the baggage is to be checked in. The battery must be carried in the cabin or the baggage must be carried in the cabin.

Generally, booking your flight well in advance can lead to lower prices. However, this isn't a hard and fast rule, as sometimes airlines offer last-minute deals.

Flying on weekdays, especially Tuesdays and Wednesdays, can be cheaper than weekends. Red-eye flights or flights at less popular times may also be less expensive.

4. Set Price Alerts
Many flight comparison sites allow you to set alerts for specific routes. You'll receive notifications when the price drops, helping you book at the best time.

5. Consider Nearby Airports

Sometimes flying from or to a neighboring airport can be cheaper. Be sure to check all nearby options.

6. Look for Special Deals and Discounts
Airlines occasionally offer special promotions. Signing up for airline newsletters or following them on social media can keep you informed about these deals.

8. Use Reward Points or Airline Miles
If you have them, using rewards or airline miles can significantly reduce the cost of your ticket.

9. Incognito Mode
Some suggest searching for flights in incognito or private browsing mode to avoid potential price hikes based on your search history.

10. Avoid Peak Travel Times
Flying during the off-season or avoiding major holidays can lead to significant savings.

11. Use Travel Agents
Sometimes, travel agents have access to deals not available online.
