1. Plan your bag: This tip is strongly stressed in almost any airport, and while it may seem like an obvious tip, it is very important. Make sure that your luggage meets all the airports requirements. You don’t want to be stopped at customs because your shampoo bottle is a few ounces to big. Trust me, it happens.
2. Travel Smart, and safe: Always keep your personal information and documents in a safe place. An airport is a very easy place for crime to occur, big crowds and lots of bags, it can be very easy to get confused or to lose track of your luggage. Try tagging your bags with noticeable tape, or something easy to spot (this will also help you locate your bags when your flight lands). Make sure your passport, wallet and ticket are on your person and tucked away safely at all times, don’t be a victim.
3. Plan the details: Standing line for a rent-a-car or fighting over a taxi can be an awful experience especially after a long flight and while jet lagged. Plan it out, have a friend waiting for you when you land or pre-book a car so its waiting there for you.
Remember always be prepared and plan ahead. While the experience you have at an airport isn’t entirely in your control following these tips can make a huge difference.
