PACK LIKE A PRO
Question of the year: what would Marie Kondo do? Pack only the essentials; pick out clothes that are easy to mix n’ match. Stuff your shoes and rolled-up belts with smaller items and wear bulky stuff at the airport if you can.
THE ELECTRONICS & LIQUIDS BAG
Trust us, this is an absolute game changer. Going through security is never fun so minimize the pain of repacking your carry-on by storing all your electronics and liquids in one bag or compartment that can be accessed easily.
BRING AN EMPTY REUSABLE BOTTLE
No more $5 bottled water at the airport! Just bring an empty one through security and refill at water dispensers behind the gate.
AIRPORT LOUNGE ACCESS
Skip the cramped seating and constant announcements at the boarding gate. It usually doesn’t cost much to get into the airport lounge, aka the travel oasis, we all need in between flights. There’s food, drinks, and reasonably comfy seats—it’s a win if you’re on a layover.
GET A CAB WITHOUT QUEUING
If you see a massive line snaking around the arrivals cab zone, do a quick 180 and head for the departure area. People are getting dropped off by cabs and chances are you’ll be able to snag one without any competition. It’s a win-win!
SNAG TRAVEL DEALS
Fly with a peace of mind knowing you’ve gotten the best deal for your whole trip. Good news—we’ve got your back. We’ve got loads of amazing deals on flights, accommodation, F&B and tours on TRAVLR, so make sure you don’t miss out!
