– Avoid the crowds and wasted time by checking the flight status online early and often.
– Knowing ahead of time where to park and how far the open spots are from the terminal can save you a lot of anxiety on your drive in.
– Most airlines now have online, mobile, or booth check-ins.
– A handy trick is to pack what you think you need and then cut that all-in half. Cut it in half again if you can!
– It’s always better to have a couple extra hours of hanging around in the airport than being in such a hurry that you barely make your flight!
– If you really must take a checked bag and a carry on, then get the kind that rolls on 4 wheels.
– Knowing ahead of time where each part of the airport is located – be it terminals, trains, security, or even just the bathroom in case of an emergency – is an underappreciated travel tip.
– If you’re flying in the cooler months, a jacket with big pockets is key. After passing through security, you can quickly throw your phone, wallet, and passport in a pocket before grabbing the rest of your belongings.
– Don’t get up to the check-in desk, security officer, or boarding gate agent and THEN start digging for your papers. Have all your documents in hand before it’s your turn in line.
– If you’re traveling in or out of the US, see if you can apply for TSA PreCheck. Members of this program can get through security and passport control a lot faster than other travelers.
– Each TSA officer has the right to demand that you give up whatever they deem a suspicious item.
– Technically, cracking jokes about having explosives or chemicals in your bag isn’t illegal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get in trouble for it.
– If you travel during the holidays and have gifts you want to take on the plane, make sure you bring them unwrapped.
– There are loads of benefits when it comes to joining a frequent flyer program, like a separate line at check-in.
– There are plenty of useful apps nowadays, be it a specific airport, airline, or a general travel app.
– Finally, don’t forget how much your nerves can impact your experience at the airport.
