There’s nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold beverage. More so when you’re stuck on a long flight. However, you might want to avoid requesting any on your next plane ride.
Aside from the fact that the beverage-to-ice ratio in a glass filled with ice can be quite unbalanced, the actual ice cubes are made from the water tank, and the tank might not always be properly cleaned.
Dress for the Occasion
How you dress at the airport and on the flight is very important. You might want to avoid anything too tight that could potentially squeeze you. Leave the jeans and formal shirts in your luggage even if you’re traveling for business. Clothing is one of the biggest things that can make your flight comfortable, so always be prepared.
Put on some soft and stretchy pants, a baggy t-shirt, a warm sweater because the air conditioning is always on, and a scarf for that added warmth.
Stay Awake and Alert on Takeoff and Landing
It may be tempting to fall asleep as soon as you get on the plane, but you really shouldn’t do that.
Unfortunately, your ears cannot regulate pressure whilst the plane is going up in the air or coming back down to the landing strip at high speeds. Our suggestion? Stay awake and chew gum.
Let It Roll
With the threat of delayed flights or long lines, we can’t always guarantee that you’ll make it to your destination looking or feeling fresh. That said, by rolling your clothes, at least your clothes will arrive at their destination looking their best.
Frequent travelers swear by rolling (instead of folding) to ensure clothes stay wrinkle-free. Not only does rolling packed clothing prevent wrinkles, but rolled-up clothes take up less space, meaning you can pack more in the same luggage — perfect for unexpected outfit changes during your trip!
While traveling can be an amazing and life-changing experience, it can also be an expensive one. When it comes to planning a trip, hotels and other costs can quickly add up.
One unexpected way to save money is to research if there are any travel perks with your existing association memberships, such as AAA or AARP. These memberships often offer discounts on hotels, restaurants, and other tourist attractions. These little-known perks can result in big savings on your next trip.
