Military Flights Tips!

military flights

Your flight is the first step toward a great vacation. Unfortunately, it can be a hassle to make it to your destination when flying. Make sure you get your vacation off on the right foot with these great travel tips.

No. 10: Don't procrastinate.
Book early. Booking early allows you to find the flight that best fits your needs. It also lets our Travel Representatives find you the best military discount flights available. Cheap military flights means that you have more spending money for your trip.

No. 9: Travel during "off-peak" times.
The major airport hubs are often more crowded during the peak traveling times (early morning, late afternoon). Try to travel during off-peak times (mid-morning through early afternoon or in the evening) from Monday through Thursday.

No. 8: Pack smart with security in mind.
With increased security at every airport, it only makes good sense to pack accordingly. All your baggage will be screened and possibly hand-searched. Pack your medicine, jewelry or other valuables in your carry-on baggage. Do not pack or bring prohibited items to the airport. Prohibited items are weapons, explosives, incendiaries and even seemingly harmless items that could be used as weapons. For a complete list of prohibited items, visit the TSA's Prohibited Items and TSA's ApprovedCarry-On's. Quick tip: place all undeveloped film and cameras with film in your carry-on baggage. Checked baggage screening equipment will damage undeveloped film.

No. 7: ID your baggage, but don't lock it.
Place identification tags on the inside and outside of your baggage. Label your laptop computer as well. Laptops are the number one forgotten item at screening checkpoints. And don't lock your checked baggage. If security personnel need to check your baggage, they may have to break the lock to gain access. There are new locks on the market that only can be opened by the TSA.

No. 6: Arrive early at the airport; avoid the lines.
Think 60, 90, 120. Arrive 60 minutes before your flight if you are not checking any luggage, 90 minutes if you have luggage to check. For international flights, allow two hours. This will give you plenty of time to navigate any delays and help prevent you from missing your flight.

No. 5: Check in early.
Check in at your airline's counter as soon as you arrive at the airport. Traveling in uniform and/or presenting your military ID to the counter agent will often times get your bag fees waived or a seat upgrade if available.

No. 4: Dress for success to navigate security.
Metal may look cool to you, but the screening machines hate it. We recommend avoiding wearing shoes, clothing, jewelry and accessories that contain metal. Place your outer coat in a bin. Don't take wrapped presents to the airport. Ship them in advance or wrap them upon arrival.

No. 3: Don't forget your photo ID.
If you are over 18 years of age, you will need a photo ID. You must have your ID in hand at the security checkpoint and during the boarding process. Make sure the name on your ID matches the name on your boarding pass.

No. 2: Stay close to your departure gate.
Don't slip away to purchase a pre-flight snack when boarding begins. Board when your group number or row is called. Group or row numbers are printed on your boarding pass. You may be selected for additional screening during the boarding process.

No. 1: Relax and enjoy your flight to the vacation of your dreams.
After all, it's YOUR VACATION. You're supposed to relax. If you packed wisely, checked in early, arrived early at the airport, prepared yourself for a smooth security screening and boarded on time, you have virtually eliminated the stress that can be caused by travel procrastination. Congratulations and have a nice flight.
