We have been told time and again that we should get to the airport right on time to avoid missing our flights. Traveling can be a nuisance if you don’t know how to save time and avoid the delays. The long drives to airports, the long lines, and frequent delays can really mess you up. You want a smooth travel experience and by not learning these travel security tips and tricks, you are likely to have a bad experience.

Going through security can take a lot of time. Today, airports and airplanes have put in place extreme security measures, this makes the task of getting through quite difficult. However, there are things you can do to ensure that you don’t spend a lot of time in security checks.

Preparing ahead will save your precious time and bring peace of mind. First, if you carry a laptop, make sure you have it out, you will have to load it into the x-ray tray. If it is placed inside the bag stacked with other items on top, it will take a lot of time to remove it. A checkpoint-friendly laptop bag may also work out well because you will not need to remove it at all.

If you are carrying drinks with you, and these are allowed drinks, you should place them in a bag or pouch that is easy to access. You don’t want to start sorting through the bag looking for drinks at the security check.

You may want to take with you some gifts, if that’s the case, you would be better off not to wrap them. If the gifts are wrapped, the security may have to unwrap them, and you know what? You will have to spend a couple of minutes wrapping them back after the security check, and that’s time wasted.
