Air Travel Tips for the un-initiated traveler. Taking some of the hassle out of your travels.
Isn’t air travel, with all the new airline and government imposed regulations and pesky fees, getting to be a real pain in the you know what? Unfortunately, when distances are involved, it’s still the fastest way to get from point A to point B.
How about all those new pat downs, scans, and rules on what you can and cannot take on board with you. Because things can change at the spur of the moment, or at least it seems that way, the best way to stay informed and stay calm is to make sure you’re informed ahead of time. Following are some Air Travel Tips to help you in that way.
For baggage restrictions and costs, contact your airline directly, or go to their web site. E.g. www.yourairlinesname.com . Also be sure to check TSA’s regulations, below.
For all security related concerns go to the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) site, they’ll have the latest information – www.tsa.gov. For a more direct way to find out what you can and cannot take with you, click here. This is TSA’s permitted/restricted items page.
When Packing for Travel in Europe, remember three things; travel light, take local transportation when possible, check with locals for best places and weather and yes, WiFi is available in most locations. I’ve even heard of travelers leaving their laptop at home and roaming around with their iPads.
Following are some great packing for travel tips:
Roll your clothes: Instead of folding your clothes, which tends to take up a lot of room in your suitcase, roll your clothes. You’ll be able to bring along many more items in the same amount of space and it also helps reduce wrinkles.
Divide your valuables as you’re packing for travel: A better way to carry valuables, especially the financial items, is to have them in separate travel bags. So, if something like your credit card is lost, you’ll have a backup card in another bag to use — you’re not stuck. For cash, an inconspicuous money belt may be a great option. You’re going on vacation to relax, not to have to worry about losing your financial means or your passport.
