To ensure a great travel experience, one must be able to know about these little tidbits on traveling that we normally either don’t take notice of or just don’t mind at all. It’s about making sense out of the normal chaos between all the transportation services, rental fees, and hotel charges even. There is just so much to take stock of that it can get a bit overwhelming to take all the information in.
The good thing is, we were able to narrow down the most important details that you as the traveler needs to know in order to make the most of your travel experience, and that includes possible airline or hotel upgrades and finally being able to check in early without having to wait for standard check in time. These travel hacks are just what you need to make things easier and a whole lot better every single time you need to go somewhere.
25. The airlines can check your bags for free if you can get it past the security checkpoint.
Airlines almost always checks luggage for free since they normally run out of overhead room. Smaller planes will always require you to check in your baggage anyway.
24. If you're unsure if you'll be bringing extra or overweight bags, don't book the cheapest flight.
An upgrade to first and business class doesn’t cost as much and can cover the extra baggage weight you might need. That’s value for your money.
23. Store your luggage on the side of the overhead bins.
Overhead bins can be small so if you have a large carry-on bag, store it at the sides of the bin instead of the middle.
22. Choose to book non-US airlines if possible.
Because they have better amenities and offers compared to US airlines.
21. To complete your online booking, go to an airline's Facebook page.
There are times when a booking can only be completed if you click on a link from the Facebook page of the airline.
20. Use sites such as Skyscanner and Momondo to research on cheap flights.
These sites can help you with booking the cheapest airfare and give you many options to choose from.
19. Always ask for late check out at the hotel.
Even if standard check out time is noon, you can always ask for late check out. The key here is not to suggest a time and let the hotel be the one to do so. If you’re an elite member though, you have the perk of checking out as late as 4pm.
18. Check all details of a cheap fare offer.
If you’re conscious about the amount of miles you accrue, check on different airline options for your chosen destination. Sometimes, going for a slightly higher fare might give you more miles compared to a cheaper fare that will only give you 25% miles.
17. Connecting flights are usually cheaper than non-stop flights.
Airlines that fly from US to Europe can offer some of the best deals. Not only do you get to rack up on your miles, it also helps you get on the elite status much quicker.
16. Refill your rental car's tank outside the airport area because it's much cheaper.
Check your rental car’s contract as some states require that you gas up within the 4 mile zone of the airport. Make sure that you put in extra gas before return.
15. Challenge an airline partner and ask for a match from another airline.
Major airlines do this challenge as they are always vying to get each other’s customers.
14. Be a frequent flyer of your favorite airline so you easily reach elite status.
This can easily mean upgrades, free food airport club use as part of the perks of being an elite member.
13. Consider alternate airports.
Sometimes, it comes out cheaper when you fly out from a different airport. Just don’t forget to factor in the cost of commuting.
12. Always bring your passport even for domestic travel.
Because you will never know when the opportunity to travel internationally because your airline has to reroute you.
11. Book a combo of hotel, airline or car rental together because sometimes it comes out cheaper.
Use online travel agencies for this as they tend to have cheaper combos.
