7 Airport Hacks to Make Family Travel Easier
I absolutely LOVE traveling. I think it is absolutely amazing to be able to go around the world and see different places, see parts of history, and experience new cultures.
However, I don’t know about all of you but flying can be a huge hassle because of all of the steps and struggles that it take to get through the airport.
What if I told you that your airport experience could be much simpler and it will save you a whole bunch of time.
Today I am going to be sharing with you 7 travel hacks that will make your airport experience much better.
1. Get There Early:
It is so important to get to your airport early. You never know how long it will take to get through security and everything you need to do before boarding your flight,
It is recommended to get there at least 1 hour early for domestic flights and 2 hours early for international flights. I always arrive 2 hours early just to be safe.
2. Dress Accordingly:
You don’t want to dress too heavily because you will have to go through airport security and get everything checked out.
Be sure to wear some slip on shoes because that is something you have to take off in security so you won’t want to wear shoes that require a lot of strapping or lacing up.
3. Pack All Your Essentials in Your Carry On:
Hopefully it doesn’t happen to you, but in the event that your checked luggage does get lost you will want to still be prepared.
Pack all of your absolute essentials in your carry on bag. This way you will be able to get by until you get your luggage returned.
4. Check in Online if Possible:
Some airlines allow you to check in online before you arrive to the airport.
If possible, I would recommend doing this because it will save you time as you get through the whole airport process.
5. Make Your Luggage Noticeable:
When it comes to getting your luggage after you arrive at your destination, you will want to be able to find your luggage easily.
I would recommend wrapping the suitcase handle in a bright duct tape or maybe tying a bright ribbon around the handle. This will make it much easier to identify your luggage quickly.
6. Give Yourself Time:
If you are going to have to stop and have a layover, be sure that you don’t plan that flight too close to your next flight. Make sure that you have at least an hour in between flights because you have to go through the whole process again at the new airport.
7. Pack Your Own Snacks:
Don’t waste your time or money buying snacks in the airport. Pack your own snacks in your carry on bag that don’t require any refrigeration such as small bags of chips, granola bars, or maybe some candy! LOL
I hope these tips and tricks help you out. Be sure to keep them in mind for the next time that you have to fly. I know these things have definitely helped me out in the past and I know that they can help out so many people as well!
