Travel Tuesday * Top Pre-Travel & Airport Tips *
You pick up quite a few handy pre-travel and airport tips when you’re a frequent flyer, here are a few of the best ones.
LOCATE YOUR RESERVATION QUICKLY
Whether it’s a short break or a longer getaway, you can have such a great time, that when you come to pick up your car from the airport, you can’t remember where it is, take a shot of your parking space so you can remember exactly where you parked the car.
If you want to turbocharge being able to spot your luggage when it’s coming around the carousel, either travel with colored luggage, or if you want to be more low-key, just tag it with an eye-catching distinctive luggage band/strap.
STRANGE BUT TRUE
You know when you are deciding between the left lane and the right lane for the security check, always pick the left lane because less of the world is left-handed, therefore the line will be shorter. I kid you not!
Hate throwing away your water before you go through security. Bright an empty water bottle and fill it up on the other side of security, instead of having to buy expensive water on the other side of security, you can fill it up, instead of having to buy the really expensive water in the airport.
When you’re travelling it’s always smart to bring a wrap. This versatile travel must-have – serves as a pillow, blanket, and my personal favorite a foot warmer.
No matter how many years you travel, you may be one of those unlucky travelers who always suffer from blocked ears, due to changes in altitude. Want to know how to solve this annoying problem?
1) Chew gum, the motion from your jaws moving, stops your ears from clogging up.
2 ) Block both nostrils and blow (not too hard!) to pop your ears.
3) Yawn BIGTIME !!! Sounds simply, but it’s actually very effective.
EYE LOVE YOU
If you’re a contact wearer, like me, you know that sleeping in your contacts, can irritate your eyes. Save yourself from itchy red-eyes, and wear your glasses during the flight. Pack your contacts lens and eye drops in your hand luggage where they are easily accessible.
When you land at your destination, you can then either switch to your contacts or, if you’re a little on the vain side like me, keep them stored in your contact lens case until the morning after your flight.
