For corporate travellers who are in and out of airports all the time, here are some top tips to help you get through the madness.
Arrive bright and early
Not only is booking an early morning flight sometimes one of the cheapest times to fly, you’ll get through the airport security lines faster. More importantly, these early flights have the best track record for leaving on time. If by chance your flight does get cancelled, odds are in your favour you’ll score a seat on another plane leaving the same day. Arriving to the airport early will ensure a stress-free experience even if there are longer line ups.
Carry on light
As more passengers want to avoid paying baggage fees you’ll want to ensure your own bag meets the airline’s size regulations for carry-on. Some airlines and types of aircraft will enable you to gate check your bag for free at time of boarding, so consider taking advantage of this service on a full flight.
Don’t delay if there is a delay
Once you find out that a flight has been cancelled due to inclement weather, a mechanical issue or some other problem, get rebooking. Reach out to your UNIGLOBE travel agent and we will help rebook your flight and hotel.
Fully charge your devices
Having a full charge on your cell phone, laptop and/or tablet will help you be the most productive while on the road. Finding an outlet at the airport can sometimes be challenging when it's busy. Having a full charge is even more important if there is a delay or cancellation and you need to make alternative arrangements. Be sure to pack a portable wireless charger to give your device a boost on the fly.
