Everyone loves traveling. But there are a lot of subtleties, knowledge of which can make the trip really unforgettable. After all, you can return with vivid impressions and a bunch of photos, and you can tell how you had to look for lost luggage.
Starting and ending point of travel – airport. In this turbulent transport hub there is not enough that you can get lost, so also non-observance of some rules can spoil the trip. And the knowledge of some secrets, on the contrary, will increase the comfort of the trip.
Find out the location of the airport.
It is worth knowing in advance all the information about the location of the airport and the transport routes to it. How far is it from the city, what buses from here go, how much does a taxi cost? Then on arrival in an unfamiliar place it will be possible to deal directly with a further transfer, and not try to be at a loss to find out what to do next.
Save a screenshot of the boarding pass.
If registration is done using a mobile device, the boarding pass screen will be better saved. An excellent place for him – a folder with pictures in the device. Rely only on the mobile application of the airline is not worth it, besides at the airport there can be problems with access to the Internet.
Print boarding pass.
And although in this age electronic means solve everything, a smartphone and e-mail will provide any communication, it is not insignificant yet to insure themselves. The phone can fail – discharge or even get lost.
To get acquainted with experienced travelers.
With the help of credit cards, you can get bonuses at some airports. For example, it can be a free pass to the lounge. Friends-travelers can share a card that will allow you to get some bonuses. Agree, it’s nice to take a taxi for free from the house to the airport. Traveling in the right company is also not out of place. Friends will spend in the same lounge where you can look through fashion magazines, snack free biscuits and catch the envious glances of other tourists.
Avoid queues when landing.
Even the largest airports can be overloaded during holidays or vacation seasons. In such a situation, one should not panic from the spectacle of huge queues. It is better to spend hours not in them, but in a cafe with an interesting book. Usually, in case of similar time trouble, those passengers, whose flight is about to take place, are allowed to check without waiting. So you just have to rest and relax, so that you can go straight to the front of the line.
Communication in queues.
If you are really in a hurry and are late, you can ask the airport officer to check in the order of highest priority. If such a step of the result does not bring, then why not just ask people in the queue to help and miss? Usually kind words work.
Hide away the jewels.
When checking safety, it is better not to risk the possibility of “ringing” on the detector. Having sent keys, watches and telephones to the container, it is necessary to remove also jewels. Earrings, rings and watches can lead to a delay. Few people like the search with a passion in front of the public.
Take an empty plastic bag.
For small cosmetics, a handbag on a fastener or a plastic bag is suitable. Some airports make it necessary to purchase special packaging for such things. Let her be with her at once.
Avoid queuing with children.
As practice shows, at those checkpoints, where adults stand in line, work is faster.
Wear clean socks.
Before you start a trip, it’s worth checking whether the socks are the same on the legs, without holes or what they look like. Shoes, you may have to remove, but do not want to blush.
Fly at a time when you can drink alcohol.
While waiting for your flight, you can quietly sip the alcohol from the flask. Better to buy tickets for a time when you can relax. If the plane leaves at 6 am, then there will be no time to drink.
Set the alarm before departure.
Waiting for your flight in the departure area, you can easily get lost in time and space. Especially put to sleep alcohol. It is necessary to make an alarm on the phone, which will sound that it is time to wake up and begin to actively prepare for departure.
Pay attention to children who travel with you. We need to think about how to entertain them. If they can spend hours behind the tablet, then it’s worth making sure that the games are ready and the device is charged. This will help to distract attention and provide peace of mind in the waiting room. Children’s games will not be seen or heard. It is better to give each child his backpack, where they will put their toys, paper and pencils for drawing, as well as personal things. Such an approach will help save on slot machines, which so invitingly act on children in airports.
Than wasting hours waiting for the landing, you can connect to the Wi-Fi network and work. If you do not have a laptop at your fingertips, you can completely read the business magazine, consider the information received. Someone is cleaning shoes, and someone is buying things that will be needed on the trip. To sit still is not worth it, because you can do things that were always lacking in time.
Go to business class.
You should try not to enter the plane as long as possible. It is best to do this at the moment when the message of the end of the landing begins to sound. And if there are free seats in the business class lounge, one of them can be occupied. And then it remains to hope that the stewardesses will not notice this trick. Sometimes it works.
Make a good impression on the border guards and the immigration service.
It is from these people that the speed of passage of control depends. Communication with them does not always go smoothly. Somewhere the procedure is formal and takes minutes, while in other countries an entire interview is conducted in a separate room. Before communicating with the border guards, you must dress properly, talk properly and clearly, look the officer in the eyes. The questions should be answered in the case and honestly, especially about the place of residence and renting a car. At such a time, joking and messing with a mobile phone is not worth it. Money is better to have in the form of a small amount of cash, and the rest is stored on a credit card. Border guards can easily ask if there is enough money for the trip. And you can not say that you arrived in the country for work. Where is better perceived the phrase about a meeting with business partners.
Inspect before leaving.
In the bar, cafe, in the shop and in the departure zone, it is always worthwhile to look around before checking out and check whether something important is left – a purse, a bag, documents. It is better to discover them at this moment than later.
