So many times, travelers associate the idea of travel with hassle and inconveniences that they’d rather do without. Traffic to get to the airport, difficulty parking, getting through luggage check and security, waiting for a flight that might be delayed…Following you’ll find a few tips that will make your trip more convenient and pleasant.
Pack according to security guidelines. Your best chance of getting through security quickly is to follow the guidelines set in place for your protection, even though it may sometimes feel as though your personal property is being invaded. Pack all liquids in clear bottles, in clear cases, and arrange your luggage contents logically. The X-Ray machines are only as quick as those interpreting the screen, in other words, if you throw all of your belongings in hodge podge, you’re more likely to be asked to wait while your luggage is searched by hand. Wear comfortable shoes that you can easily slip in and out of. This choice serves a dual purpose: you’ll get through security with more ease and speed, and you’ll be more comfortable on your flight, without tight shoes on.
Bring a book or magazine, or your video iPod to the airport. Chances are that even if your plane is on time, you’ll have some waiting to do. Instead of sitting there, bored, plan ahead and bring something to occupy your time. Bring something interesting…if it’s not interesting to you, it won’t satisfactorily pass the time. Books are excellent for the flight as well; as of yet, there’s not a restriction in place on having a paperback comedy in your carry-on.
Travel to the airport can be the most stressful of all travel stressors, but with some more planning ahead (a common theme in travel convenience), you can book your parking, and even a hotel room on ParkSleepFly.com, granting you reserved access to convenience; you can entirely avoid rush hour type traffic on your way to or from the airport. You can arrive at your terminal refreshed and calm, even if you are flying to an important business meeting that will decide the next ten years of your career.
Give yourself a bit of relaxation, and travel can go from stress to bliss.
