Tips / Travel

Vacation stress can start early in the trip, from the hassles of checking luggage to the delay at TSA. Here are five ways you can reduce your stress at the airport.

 

Arrive at the Right Time

Giving yourself ample time before your flight can reduce the stress of parking, traffic, baggage check and TSA. If you’re worried you’ll be stuck waiting around the airport, focus on ways you can relax once you’re sitting at the airport gate.

 

Have Your Documents Ready to Go

Many frequent travelers take advantage of accessories that keep your travel documents in one place, like a lanyard. Don’t forget to put metal items in your carry-on bag so you won’t have to empty your pockets through the metal detector.

 

Take Advantage of the Airline Lounge

If you have the time and access, frequent travelers can enjoy TVs, comfortable chairs, WiFi, snacks and drinks. Annual membership costs are stiff, but many travel credit cards feature access to the lounges.

 

Eat Well Before Your Flight

Instead of relying on overpriced sandwiches or waiting for salty peanuts, eat a healthy meal before your even get to the airport. You won’t have to allot any time and money to stand in line waiting for a greasy slice of pizza. You will also have more energy to navigate the airport.

 

Carry On Your Luggage

If you’re taking a quick trip and can skip the oversized liquids, carrying on your luggage is one of the easiest ways to avoid airport stress. Instead of dealing with baggage check, you’ll be able to walk off your plane and out of the airport in no time.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
