1. Keep important documents in an easily accessible place
If your carry on bag has a front pocket or internal pocket that is easy to get too, keep all of your documents together here. Reduce the amount of time you need to spend searching for them at check in, security and boarding gates by making them easily accessible. This includes your passport, tickets, boarding pass and any other relevant documents. Take the stress out of hunting for them every time you need to get them out with a little preparation before you leave for the airport.
2. Pack a few basic in a carry on
Most airline travelers worst nightmare is a lost bag, and whilst not common it can happen. Packing a few essentials in your carry on luggage can not only set your mind at east about how you’d cope with a lost bag but can also remove the need to go out and buy new things immediately if you are unlucky. Consider carrying spare socks, underwear, a toothbrush deodorant and a change of t-shirt on board with you, just in case.
3. Remember to bring a book/snacks/drinks for before you go through
Sitting in the waiting area can take a long time and refreshment prices are often very high, although you can’t avoid buying a drink if you get thirsty you can avoid the food prices. Pack some food and snacks to keep you going till you arrive at your destination to keep your budget low and ensure you have a little bit of what you fancy. Also, whatever your favorite things to do, bring them with you on the plane. It’ll make the journey fly by and its a great opportunity to get some down time and do what you enjoy in relative peace. Be it a sketch pad, laptop, book, camera or portable DVD player take it with you!
