Here are some quick tips for smoother summer and fall travel:
- Get to the airport with plenty of time to spare. Lines are long, so make sure to give yourself extra time to help reduce your stress level.
- Prepare for delays. They happen, although some airports have higher percentages of delays than others. Book a direct flight whenever possible.
- Use carry-on luggage whenever possible. This can help reduce wait times to check your luggage and eliminates the need to wait at baggage claim.
- Be prepared for delayed or lost luggage. Take all electronics and a change of clothing with you in your carry-on. This can be invaluable if your luggage is delayed to your destination.
- Take advantage of club memberships. Airlines will go the extra mile for their club members.
- Download airline apps. This is usually the best way to get updated information.
- Consider incentives to change flights. Airlines have been offering great incentives if you agree to take a later flight. If your time allows, consider this option as it may come with great benefits.
- Be flexible. Everyone working in the travel industry is a bit stressed. Try to have some patience.
- Add a day at each end of your trip to handle travel issues. It isn’t always possible but planning a full day to travel may be the stress relief that you need.
