1.) Buy a ticket.
This is always the first step to planning your flight for vacation. It might sound simple, but it does take a lot of research to find your desires; and it is not easy. Certain airlines have other benefits that others don’t. For example, some might have more leg space than the other airline. Furthermore, research and choose wisely.
2.) Have you a photo ID.
You will not be able to receive your tickets and take your flight if you show up without your ID. This should be a current ID that is valid. Also, if you are planning to fly internationally, you must have your passport present as well. Overall, always check and see what is required to fly.
3.) Pack smart.
It cost money to bring luggage on a trip. Usually some airlines will allow you to bring a carry on for free, or your first bag. But, when you go through bag check, your first bag will cost you around $25 on average. After that, the price rises the more bags you have; it also rises if your bag is heavier than the weight limit. Overall, Pack light and make sure you don’t bring anything that is restricted; such as liquids.
4.) Have a ride to the airport.
We advise you to try to not spend money on an Uber, since traveling is already expensive as it is. If possible have a friend or family member take you to the airport.
5.) Get there early.
It takes a lot of time to get through security and bag checks. Additionally, most airlines require you to be at the gate at least 30 minutes before your take-off time. We suggest that you arrive to the airport at least 2 hours before your flight. Do not be that person who is running senseless through the airport!
