With so many flights scheduled during busy summer or holiday seasons, it’s easy to spend more time at the airport than you’d like. The best way to save time is to be a savvy traveler. Plan ahead with these airport tips!


Airport Tips: How to Save Time


“Airport travel, especially during the summer, can be a sweaty nightmare or a pleasant experience,” explains expert traveler Margie Floris, president and co-founder of the travel wellness company Savvy Travelers.

“It all comes down to how much preparation you do to save time at the airport. The good news is that there is plenty you can do to cut back on airport time and keep yourself fresh when traveling.”

Being a savvy traveler is all about knowing the tips and tricks to get you through the airport quicker, keep you organized and prepared, and help you feel fresh and happy when you reach your destination.

Here are some tips to save time and be a savvy airport traveler this summer:





Choose wisely


To save time, try to fly on non-peak days. Those who can fly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, for example, will find that the airport is not as busy. This alone should help speed up your travel experience because you will not be caught in as many long lines. Of course, Thanksgiving is the exception to this rule.

Prep ahead


Do what you can for your flight before you even arrive at the airport. This includes downloading the airline’s app, so you can use mobile check-in and show your digital boarding pass. This will send you right to security, bypassing the initial check-in line.

Weigh ahead


Weigh your bag at home and plan accordingly to avoid unpleasant surprises at the airport. You may need to remove items to meet the weight limit; it’s better to do this at home than at the airport.
