Long lines at the airport have become as common as long lines at the DMV. We all know those lines are going to be there and that there is no escaping them. However, if you’re starting a vacation, the inconveniences of airline travel shouldn’t deter you. Instead, stay focused on the big picture. That would be you relaxing on vacation. Here’s some helpful advice on how to make your next airport trip a smooth one:
Put Loose Items in Your Carry-On
As you’re standing in the security line, you should empty out your pockets of keys, coins and another other objects and put them all in your carry on. That will be one less thing you’ll have to deal with as you get screened.
Carry Wet Wipes and Sanitizer
Airline travel means traveling with thousands of other folks on the same day. Some will have come before you and some will come after. In between, you want to try an insulate yourself from all those germs as much as possible. Before getting comfy in your seat, wipe down the rests and tray table with the wet wipes and keep sanitizing as you make your way to your destination. You won’t want to wake up with a cold on your vacation.
Check Flight Status
It is extremely easy to get flight status updates on your phone, pad or computer. You should be checking with them before leaving the house. A flight delay doesn’t always end up as a cancellation unless you’re dealing with severe storms. At least with a delay you won’t feel as rushed.
Bring Ziploc Bags
Ziploc bags come in very handy while traveling. These are where you should put any lotions or shampoos in your luggage. They can also hold your electronic cords and chargers for easy access and no tangles.
Check Ahead for the Terminal Restaurants
The benefit of getting to the terminal early is that it gives you time to get settled before you board. That could include picking up something to eat as most airlines have given up serving meals. And if they are serving meals, you might not want to partake. If you know which restaurants are in the terminal you’re going to, then you can take the time to get what you want and bring it on board.
