Even if you are an avid traveler who flies every month, the airport is likely still a bit of a hassle for you. Between the long lines at security and the general feelings of stress among your fellow passengers, most people try to get through the airport as quickly as possible. That’s why our team at Allsave Car Rental Maui has put together our top three tips for getting through the airport like a pro.
1. Be Prepared
When it comes to time spent in the airport, it’s a good idea to get as much done ahead of time as possible. Thankfully, you can now check in completely online, which will save you a lot of time and ensure you get the seat you want. If you are checking a bag, make sure to weigh it before you get to the airport as well to avoid any trouble with the check-in agents. And, in the hours leading up to your flight, check your flight status online to be warned of any gate changes or delays.
2. Familiarize Yourself with Security Procedures
For most people, getting through airport security is the worst part. However, if you are prepared and understand the rules, you shouldn’t have a problem getting through quickly. Before you leave for the airport, put your ID, credit card, and boarding pass in an easily accessible part of your wallet or bag, and place everything else in your carry-on. Look up TSA regulations for packing liquids so you are sure they won’t cause any trouble and wear shoes and a jacket that are easy to slip on and off.
3. Book Your Rental Car
Finally, remember that you have two airports to get through and be prepared for your destination as well. Booking your rental car ahead of time is a great way to save time so the vacation can start!
