Get Out of the Airport Faster with These Simple Tips

Travelling is supposed to be fun. And it is, to a point. But with everything you need to remember, the actual practicalities of moving from one place to the next can be quite stressful.

Arriving at an airport, in particular, can be a whirlwind of confusion and rushing from one place to the next, trying to get through security checks, retrieve your luggage, find your way to wherever you need to go, and all the other things that have to be done when you land can get confusing.

Follow the simple tips in this list and the next time you fly, you'll have a far easier time.

Arrange your transportation

Airports are usually located some distance from the city they're a part of, and it's unlikely your hotel will be nearby. It can also be expensive to grab whatever transportation is available when you're in a hurry, so it's best to arrange something in advance.

Airport taxi companies, such as United Taxis, will be happy to take a booking, so you can have someone waiting for you when you land, avoiding any delays. That way, you can just hop in a car and go as soon as you're ready.

Make some notes

In a small notebook or a single folded piece of paper, write down all the information you'll need when you land. This should include the name, address and phone number of where you're staying, the location of any meeting point you've arranged, and the name of the taxi company you've booked, if relevant.

Prepare your pockets

You should already have your passport handy from boarding the plane, but make sure you don't bury it in your hand luggage somewhere. Keep it somewhere easily accessible, either in a pocket of your clothing or your bag.

With it, keep the notes you made with the information you'll need. You should also carry a small amount of money in the local currency – enough to pay for your taxi and maybe grab a quick bite to eat if you need to. Don't forget a pen in case you need to write anything else down, and keep your phone somewhere handy.

Make your baggage easy to find

With so much baggage going past, people often miss their own bag the first time it flies past them. Adding brightly-coloured straps, stickers, tags, or anything else that makes it stand out from the rest is extremely useful. The faster you can spot your bag, the faster you can be out of the airport and on your way.
