Never pack expensive electronics in your checked suitcase because the airlines won’t cover them if they’re lost or damaged. Every airline I know of excludes these from their reimbursements. If you’re carry-on is feeling really heavy, you might be tempted to stuff your laptop or iPad or camera or whatever in the luggage you’re checking so you don’t have to carry it, but resist the temptation. What about travel insurance? Many policies exclude laptops and most limit the reimbursement for lost or damaged luggage to about $200 bucks, which doesn’t cover much. Word to the wise: Keep your fancy electronics in your carry on or leave them at home.
