By now I’m sure you have seen a bunch of airline tips that can save you money or time. But what about the hacks that do change the way you travel? There are many great lists with a bunch of helpful tips and tricks, but these ten airport hacks will change the way you travel by plane!

Airport Hacks You Need to Know

Ask for a free upgrade at the front desk

This trick won’t always work, but sometimes you can get a seat with more legroom or an exit row by just asking! 

Download your airline’s app for free in-flight entertainment

Don’t wait until you board the plane to find out that you need the app to access movies or music! Download it ahead of time so you can access all your flight info and entertainment.

Pack your liquids on the top of your carry on bag

If you are packing liquids, keep them near the top of your bag. This way, you don’t have to dig through your bag to find them during security checkpoints. 

Pack your own snacks

Did you know that you can bring your own snacks? Put them in your luggage and pack things like goldfish or a protein bar for your trip! They won’t let you travel with takeout boxes, but you can bring smaller snacks!

You can bring an empty water bottle through security

If you don’t want to pay $5+ for a water bottle, bring your own water bottle, just make sure it’s empty! Then you can fill it when you enter the airport.

Early morning flights usually have less turbulence

This is a little known fact that most people don’t know! If you have trouble flying or you get sick easily, try an early morning flight.

Use an airport phone to rebook instead of waiting in line

If your flight gets canceled or miss your flight, head to an airport phone instead of waiting in line! You can talk directly with an airline associate and rebook faster this way!

You can use any security checkpoint to get to your gate

If the gate area you need to get to is packed, walk down a few more gates. You may be able to get through the line faster and just walk a bit more to get to your gate.

Research your plane before you pack

Some planes won’t have a carry on bag area because the plane is too small. If you are already cutting it close on time, you may not be able to make your connecting flight if you have to wait to retrieve your bag from under the plane.

If you have carry on bags, consider paying for priority boarding

If you need to have that second bag with you, pay for priority boarding. These people tend to fill up the available carry on slots, so you don’t have to worry about checking your bag in most cases.

I hope that you found something in this list helpful and that it was a little out of the box for you! While some of these are tried and true tips that everyone should know, some might be new for you!
