Airport Tips For Traveling

Airport Tips for Traveling

Traveling can be fun and stressful at the same time. You can be excited about your amazing trip but can't decide what intriguing items to pack and how much to pack for vacation. You are anxious to get to your destination but not so eager to wait in those long airport lines. Well, there are some tips to make your life a little easier when traveling.

Traveling Mobile Apps

One of my favorite things to do is to use my app on my phone. I use my Delta Airline app to remember where I'm parked when I arrive back at the airport. It keeps me informed of all my upcoming trips also. 

You can also check-in on the app the day before your flight and prepay for your luggage which saves you time at the airport. 

The boarding pass is easily accessible on your phone giving you the ability to have a paperless boarding pass. Yes, that makes fewer things for you to keep up with when you're carrying your luggage.

Another great factor I like is, I know my next boarding gate before I get off the plane, giving me the ability to quickly move past people that are standing at the board trying to find their next departure gate. After all, if your flights are not close together, you don't have time to waste. Let's get hustling and catch that flight to Paris, Hawaii, or where ever you are going! 

There are other airlines that have apps also in this technology-centered world; therefore, check with your airline to see if they have an app to help save you time while you are preparing to have fun in the sun.

Arrival at the airport

Make sure you arrive at the airport early, because if you are late for your airplane flight you can end up paying for another flight or even a hotel because of an all-night layover you didn't intend to have. 

Are you ready for your trip? 

Are you ready for some fun in the sun? 

Do you know what to take on your trip?

What can I take to the Airport?

There are certain things that can be taken on an airplane, and certain things that are mandatory to bring. The right identification card is mandatory in order to travel by plane.

What is the proper Identification for flying on an airplane?

  • Drivers license or an ID issued by the DMV
  • US Passport
  • US department of defense ID
  • Border crossing card
  • DHS trusted travel cards
  • State-issued enhanced drivers license
  • and find more on the TSA site.

What is the 3-1-1 liquid rule?

You can only take a certain amount of liquid on an airplane. There are rules to what you can take on an airplane; therefore, make sure you follow them.

According to,

Each passenger may carry liquids, gels and aerosols in travel-size containers that are 3.4 ounces or100 milliliters. Each passenger is limited to one quart-size bag of liquids, gels and aerosols. Common travel items that must comply with the 3-1-1 liquids rule include toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash and lotion.

Be safe and enjoy your trip; meanwhile, here are a few more tips for the airport!

Some Airport Tips

  • Take an empty water bottle.
  • Use an airline app for boarding passes.
  • Email confirmation- screenshot and set as lock screen.
  • Take a picture of your parking space.
  • Get to the airport early.
  • Tag your suitcase with something noticeable.
  • Turn both handles on your suitcases back to back to make it easier to carry more than one suitcase. 
  • Carry a small deflated ball for a child to play with. Deflate before getting back on the plane.
  • Carry an empty water bottle.
  • Carry a jacket.
  • Follow the 3-1-1 liquid rule for any liquids
  • Carry chewing gums for your breath and ears.
  • Take precautions with your safety and health while traveling.
Don't forget to book your place to stay, so you can fly high on that airplane. I have used to book a vacation without having to pay upfront. That gives me time to know the particular amount to save before arriving at the room; meanwhile, keeping the fabulous room I desired on hold before someone else books it. Let's face it the best ones, go first! I love to see those words, "Book now and pay later"! It's music to my ears.

I personally check the button that says free cancellation, just in case something comes up. Read to see when that cancellation date is, but hopefully, there are no emergencies to cancel your fabulous vacation for. I also read the reviews to see which hotel I would prefer to stay at.

Covid-19 Travel tips

In recent times there have been additional guidelines to take if you have to travel to help protect yourself and others from the spread of coronavirus when taking a trip. According to Mayo Clinic,

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends following these steps to protect yourself and others when you travel:
  • Maintain a distance of 6 feet (2 meters) between you and others as much as possible.
  • Avoid contact with anyone who is sick
  • Limit contact with frequently touched surfaces, such as handrails, elevator buttons and kiosks. If you must touch these surfaces, use hand sanitizer or wash your hands afterward.
  • Wear a cloth face mask.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Clean your hands often. It's especially important after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water aren't available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub your hands together until they feel dry.

Have a safe and awesome trip.
