How To Get Through the Airport Quickly

Everyone wants to get through the airport as quickly as possible.  It's not like there is anything particularly wrong with airports; most are quite nice actually, like a shopping mall with a food court and a heavy emphasis on souvenirs.  Some, like Southampton Airport in England, have particularly nice facilities, 4 and 5 star restaurants, or a hotel with tempting amenities.  However, they represent the gateway between us and our next destination.  While you hear of people renting a car to enjoy the road, rarely do you hear of people flying to enjoy the airport or the plane.

I will be traveling next week internationally and I was looking for a few tips on how to get through the airport faster.  It seems like most sites have the same advice (pack liquids properly in 100ml containers in a clear ziplock bag, etc), so here I would like to offer some lesser touted tips to get through and to your destination in a jiffy.

Check in Online

Did you know you can actually check in to your airline on the internet before you arrive?  This new service offered by many of the major airlines is even available if you need to check bags upon arrival and can save you anywhere from five to thirty minutes of airport time, depending on the line at your check in counter.

Big, Bright Luggage Tags

Security will take as long as it takes, that's just the nature of modern travel.  Don't waste time watching your bag go by or get excited by the 50 bags that look exactly like yours.  Pick up some colorful luggage tags and you'll thank yourself when it comes time to collect your checked luggage.

Reserve your car hire online

Why wait in line for a car hire reservation when your car can be awaiting your arrival at the airport?  Get the jump on the best prices and selection and save yourself some time in transit by booking through
