Get as prepared as you can and check-in online before you fly.
Some airlines allow you to check in online 24 hours before so you just drop your bag at the airport, saving you having to wait in the queue to check in. With your Beforeifly App, you can check-in online with over 150 airlines!
If you do have to check-in a bag at the airport, take what you need with you on your carry-on and pack everything else in your hold luggage. Sometimes with delays, or cancellations, luggage is misplaced or delayed. By packing essentials in your carry-on, you won’t be running to your closest department store for the first night!
When dealing with an immigration officer, be polite and well spoken, make good eye contact and have a clear idea of where you are going next (name of hotel, car rental). Never ever make jokes and do not use your mobile phone. Be respectful.
Pack Light! If you are heading to a warm and tropical destination, remember that you will be spending most of your time on a beach. A few swimsuits, and some appropriate dinner attire is all you need! You may be able to pack it all in a carry-on and avoid any additional baggage fees.
In the end, always remember that there are thousands of flights in a & out of the airports.
Travel Should Be Fun & Exciting. Do not let any small airport glitches set the tone for your vacation!
