Book Two One-Way Flights
It can be cheaper to book two one-way flights as opposed to one round trip. You can look through a bunch of different airlines and find individual flights at the times (and prices!) that work best for you.
Fly In the Morning
Turbulence and storms usually occur in the afternoon, so if you like your flights smooth, it’s best to fly early in the morning.
It’s not the most popular option, I know. But that’ll help you on another level. Because early flights aren’t as popular, they tend to be a little cheaper
Bring Baby Alcohol Bottles
Life-changer alert: Baby bottles of alcohol contain fewer than three ounces of liquid, meaning they can waltz easily through security.
Scan Your IDs
It’s a good rule of thumb to scan your passport, driver’s license, and any other ID you’re carrying with you on your trip. In case you lose it or it’s stolen, you’ll have a record of it.
Email the pics to yourself too! If your phone gets lost, you’ll be able to retrieve them using a computer or someone else’s phone.
Take an Empty Water Bottle
Avoid paying seven dollars for a bottle of water at the airport by bringing your own empty bottle.
You can’t bring a full bottle through security — they’ll confiscate it — but you can bring an empty bottle and fill it up at a water fountain
To the Left, To the Left!
Always hit up the security checkpoint farthest to the left. Studies have shown that most people flock like sheep to the right-hand side.
So go left. Save time. Be different.
Charge Your Phone Through the TV
If you forget that pesky wall charger, never fear! TVs in airports and hotels very often have a USB port, and you can plug right into it.
