Smart Travel Hacks For – Departure

  1. Carry along your own water bottle.

Depending on the airline’s own policies regarding drink costs, the amount of times water is offered may not be to your liking. Having your own water bottle ensures that you have water when you want it. When they do come around, top off your bottle with what they give you.

  1. Never underestimate the value of a fanny pack.

Yes, they can be embarrassing and seemingly out of the mid-to-late 1980s, but trust me—every time I travel, even domestically, it has ensured that my valuables are safe, and it expedites security checks.


  1. Splurge on Internet service if your flight is more than six-and-a-half hours long.

    You’ll thank me when you find that sparking a conversation with your seat partner is sometimes harder than pulling teeth. Plus, you can complete work for the last time before you hit your destination.


  2. Ensure that you have a pen before leaving home so you can complete customs forms.

Fill the forms out when you get them, and ensure that your family members have theirs filled as well. People will clamour for your pen; flight attendants rarely have them.


  1. Sprint for the bathroom, 20 minutes before you land.

    Usually when the seatbelt light comes on, I’ve found that you still have 15 minutes of leeway until you trulyhave to be seated. Use this opportunity to relieve yourself to prevent fighting for restrooms when you land.
