Many of us love to travel. Whether it is domestically or internationally, for work or for leisure, to somewhere new or somewhere you love, visiting a different place has an element of excitement that never goes away. Even the time spent on the plane and at the airport can be a fun part of the experience – as long as you do it right! With that in mind, here are four key things that you should always do before you head to the airport, in order to make sure you have a stress-free trip.

1. Plan your journey there

Make sure you know exactly where the airport is (and which one you are going to!) and how you are going to get there well in advance. This could mean setting the destination into your car’s sat-nav, booking a taxi for the trip, or planning your route on public transport and booking the right tickets. However you choose to travel, it is important to leave plenty of time for the journey in case of traffic, train cancelations or other unexpected delays. That way you will not have to worry about being rushed at the airport or potentially even missing your flight.

2. Arrange your parking

If you are traveling to the airport by car, sorting out your parking in advance can be very helpful for avoiding delays. Plus these days it is really easy. Just go to a website such as parkon.com, type in the airport you need to park at and the dates you need to leave your car there for, and then you will be able to choose from a range of available parking lots. Sure, you could risk turning up and trying to find a spot on the day, but why add unnecessary stress to your trip?

3. Check in to your flight

The digital world has made flying much smoother. Rather than having to wait until you arrive at the airport, you can now save time by checking in to your flight online 24 hours before you fly. If you do so, you can often choose where you want to sit in advance too. That way you can make sure you get that coveted aisle or window seat! For extra convenience, download the app of the airline you are flying with. This enables you to easily find out when you are boarding, plus get notified of any delays directly through your phone.

4. Pack your baggage carefully

No one wants to have to pay extra because their bags are too heavy or get delayed going through security because of an oversized bottle of water. Check in advance what items are prohibited and be sure to keep your ID and boarding pass in easy reach in addition to laptops and other electronics that have to be taken out of your bag for scanning. If you can, try not to wear too much metal on your person either, as this can set off the scanner. Finally, wearing shoes that are easy to take on and off will help you get through this stage much quicker.
