Handy Traveling Tips
By Graham McKenzie Published: 09/29/2009
Traveling can be a nerve-wrenching experience, whether it's a last minute trip or one that's been scheduled for weeks and even months in advance. Will they have everything you need when you arrive, what can't you leave home without and can you be sure you won't leave anything there. You run in circles at the last minute trying to make sure you packed your toothbrush, passport and chewing gum for the flight. Then there's whether you've packed according to security stipulations when you get to the airport. While it can indeed be a worrisome task to prepare for, travel doesn't have to be the end of the world if you do just do a little planning and follow these simple travel tips.
Packing is an especially important part of your trip. You don't want to forget something essential. When you're going through security, you need to follow procedures that may leave you digging through your purse or carry-on when you're in a rush to catch a flight. The first tip about flight security is paying attention to the rules about carrying liquids through security. This not only includes beverages, but toothpaste, liquid deodorant, lotion, lip gloss, aerosols, and much more. Many people are used to packing these items in their carry-on bags without thinking about the restrictions. Restricted items that might be confiscated by the security officers may not be returned!
Travelers may avoid this by making themselves aware of the rules of traveling. One of these rules is that they should pack bigger bottles of liquids into the bags you're checking. Airports permit the carrying of small clear zipper-locked bag with liquids three ounces or less on the plane (no aerosols). Simple remember to pack these items in a small zip-lock bag and all other liquids in bags that are to be checked. Another factor people must bear in mind is their shoes. Travelers should remember that at every checkpoint they are required to take off their shoes. If you are wearing shoes that are difficult to remove quickly, you will impede traffic flow and soon become a bother to security, other passengers and yourself. To avoid this complication it is suggested that you wear pair of sneakers that are easily removed; if needed, you should pack the shoes your going to wear in your carry-on bag and change after you've pass all checkpoints. This would simplify the entire procedure.
Another key travel tip I can provide is to arrive no less than two hours before the departure time depending the time of the year. I suggest this because flights customarily board, 30-40 minutes before the flight. By arriving early you grant yourself an hour and a half to complete all check in requirements.
Depending on how you made your flight reservation, you may print your ticket at the check-in kiosk. These kiosks are self-serve, so you don most of the work yourself. This is convenient, but you need to know how to use them or else check-in can eat-up your time at the airport. Keep some things close at hand: your ticket record locator (a 13-digit number), confirmation number and driver's license. After checking in and printing your ticket, you can check your bags at the counter and show your ID to the ticket agent. Now you're free of your huge suitcase and you can head for the security checkpoint!
The checkpoint is actually a fairly easy process. It's fast moving, but if you know what you're doing, it moves smoothly. Another travel tip to remember is following procedure: first you need to present your ID and boarding pass, so keep them close at hand. Once you pass this point, place your carry-on items on the conveyor belt that passes under an x-ray while you walk through a metal detector. Before you put your bags on the conveyor belt, remove your shoes and Zip-Loc bags with liquids. Take out your laptop computer and other electronics smaller than the palm of your hand. Put them on the conveyor belt separately. Gather your belongings and the only thing you have left to do now is board the plane!
It's a good idea to read travel tips from a variety of sources when vacationing to ensure tat when the time comes to travel that you don't panic about what you may or may not have forgotten. Your traveling will be a lot smoother the more well prepared you are.
