Top 30 Travel Tips – Part One

  1. Sign up for TSA Pre-Check. If you only travel domestically, invest in TSA Pre-Check. The process can take up to 8 weeks, so plan ahead. The $85 fee is well worth it, as TSA Pre-Check membership is good for five years.

  2. Sign up for Global Entry. If you travel internationally, invest in Global Entry. Global Entry provides the same benefits at TSA Pre-Check, PLUS expedited processing at Customs and Border Patrol at airports upon arrival into the US. The cost for Global Entry is $100.

  3. Join travel loyalty program. Before your trip make sure you join the loyalty program for each brand you will encounter during your trip. Update your reservations with your loyalty information. Many hotels offer perks such as free Wi-Fi to loyalty members (even during your first stay!).

  4. Be a loyal traveler: As much as possible, fly on the same airline, rent a car with the same rental company, and stay with the same hotel brand. Have a backup brand and use that anytime you can’t travel with your preferred brand.

  5. Purchase an airport lounge membership. Whether you join your preferred airline’s lounge, a credit card lounge, or private lounge, you will appreciate the quiet environment and amenities before your flight and during layovers.
