Even if you love traveling, getting through TSA smoothly can be an absolute nightmare. The lines are typically slow and people are exhausted from traveling, but TSA is very necessary to ensure that the airport remains secure and safe.
So take a break from packing your suitcase to check out our 5 tips that will make getting through TSA much faster and easier:
1. Wear Shoes with Lock Laces®
Taking off your shoes before stepping into the full-body scanner is one of the most time-consuming parts of going through TSA. And once you’ve made it through, it takes anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes for most people to retie their shoes. But if you install Lock Laces® the night before your big trip, the no-tie elastic laces allow you to slip off your shoes and slip them back on in seconds by simply loosening or tightening the lock.
2. Get 3 oz. Travel Bottles for Favorite Toiletries
You can carry more than 3.4 oz. of liquid per container if you check your luggage to be carried beneath the plane; however, if you are only taking a carry-on bag, you should put all liquids in 3 oz. travel bottles. There are exceptions to this rule: medications and infant/child nourishment. Other than these two exceptions, all containers larger than 3.4 oz. must be in a checked bag regardless of how much liquid is in the container.
3. Memory Foam Neck Pillow is a Must-have
4. Travel Light
Most people tend to over-pack their suitcases for short trips if they aren’t prepared for the weather in their destination city. If you’re only going to be gone for a week or two, make sure to research the weather so you can have a better idea of what to bring. It’s always a good idea to travel as lightly as possible to make the journey through the airport easier, and it’s never a fun to navigate a new city while carrying heavy, over-stuffed luggage. If you are checking one of your bags to be carried beneath the plan, we suggest you pack two or three full outfits into a carry-on bag in case your checked bag is lost or routed to the wrong airport.
