Things to Do Before Heading Out to the Airport for Your Trip
Time is gold, and that couldn’t be truer than traveling. While you can’t travel in our private jets so we won’t have to go through the increasingly annoying and frustrating long lines and security checks to make it to our flight, there are ways on how to shave off from precious minutes to make sure that you don’t miss our flights right in the comfort of your homes.
The best part? These only take a couple of minutes, and you don’t need to worry about long lines and grumpy and overworked airline staff.
Check your flight status
What could be more frustrating than to rush all the way to the airport only to find out that your flight has already been canceled? Before you head out the door, be sure to check if your flight is delayed or canceled. That way, you can already make arrangements to have yourself rescheduled without having to fight your way through the many frustrated travelers to be able to get on the next flight out.
Check the airport parking situation
Many airports now provide updates and status on the parking situation at any given time. Taking a few minutes to check the airport’s parking situation will give you an idea if it will be better for you to drive yourself or have someone else drop you off at the airport so that you won’t miss your flight.
Most major airlines now make it possible for you check-in your flight, choose your seat, and print out your boarding pass as early as 48 hours before your actual trip. So, you can easily skip this horrendously long line and make your way straight on into customs.
Become a TSA member
One of the most frustrating parts of traveling is going through customs and immigrations. So frustrating that the TSA came up with a membership program that will help qualified travelers to whiz their way through customs and immigrations. Right now, this is just available within the U.S.
Weigh your luggage
One of the common mistakes travelers make is that they don’t take the time to weigh their luggage. Learning that your luggage is overweight right when you’re at the airport would leave you no choice but to pay a hefty fee so that you can have your luggage checked-in. It also can be quite embarrassing since you can easily cause the other travelers behind you to wait even more.
Confirm your hotel and car rental reservations
Another common mistake travelers make is that they focus too much on preparing for their flight that they don’t pay that much attention to their other reservations like their hotel and car rentals. Make sure that before you leave to give them a call to confirm that your reservations are good.
It’s also important to inform them if there have been any changes to your flight reservation, especially when it comes to delays or cancellation due to severe weather to avoid any unwanted penalties.
