Here are some useful tips that will help you become an airport expert
1. Book airport parking early for max savings
Book early for up to 60% off airport parking deals and packages.
Book your meet and greet airport parking at any major UK airport with GetAirportParking.co.uk to get your holiday off to a flying start.
2. Bring an empty water bottle
Since you can only bring 100 ml of liquid through airport security, packing an empty water bottle in your carry-on is a good idea to avoid paying for water later.
Simply bring an empty bottle with you, and ask any restaurant or cafe to fill it up for you. Or, fill it up yourself using the water fountains provided.
3. Book an early morning flight for less turbulence
Always means smaller crowds. And yes, while this sometimes translates to fewer shops/restaurants that are open, it also almost always means fewer tourists and crowds. If you want to avoid long lines.
4. Don’t wait in line to get your flight re-booked
If your flight was cancelled, don’t wait in the long line filled with angry people complaining to the airport staff.
Instead, find an airport phone, which are usually free to call the airline, and re-book your flight over the phone.
This has proved to be a faster method of re-booking for many passengers.
5. Wear your heaviest items of clothing
This could seem like an obvious hack, but many people don’t do it.
Yes, you might be heating up during your trip, but you are saving a lot of space and weight in the suitcase for other items.
Wear your heaviest shoes, jumpers and coats – you can always put them in the overhead locker when you’re on the plane.
