5. Head Left At Security
Airport security lines can be a major point of stress, especially if you are running late. Research shows that right-handed people usually turn right first, and there are many more right-handers than left-handers! Cut down on waiting time by heading to the checkpoint farthest to the left.
6. Sign Up for the VIP Airport Lounge & TSA Pre Check
The My TSA App is essential for those who find themselves always running late. Or maybe you just like to be extra early! Either way, you can search for your airport and view security wait times and any departure delays.
9. Take Advantage Of Free Wi-Fi
Get some work done or browse Facebook without using up your data. Most airports offer Wi-Fi completely free of charge. If not, you will likely get a limited amount of free usage and then pay a fee to use the connection past the allotted time.
10. Check Out Local Transportation
Curb your spending by skipping the airport taxi cabs. Often times taxis charge an additional fee or minimum price just for starting your trip at the airport. These fees can range from $5-$15. Research public transportation options like air trans, metros, or buses that can get you to your destination without breaking the budget.
