Charge at the Airport Like a Pro!

Cellphones, tablets and laptops make it easy to keep in touch on-the-go. However, running out of battery life is arguably one of the most frustrating aspects of staying connected while traveling. An increasing number of airports and airlines are meeting this challenge by installing power charging stations in airport terminals and airplane seats.

Charging station etiquette: No matter how you choose to charge your devices, keep these charging station etiquette tips in mind:

-If you don’t have a device to charge or you’re already done charging your device(s), move away from the charging station to allow other travelers to power up before takeoff.

-If there are no empty spaces available to plug in, but you see someone else’s device is fully charged, don’t unplug it. First, identify whose device it is by asking passengers standing or seated near the charging station. Most folks stand at or keep a close eye on their devices, so it shouldn’t be hard to identify whose electronics are occupying the space you want.

-Keep an eye on your device. Some charging stations have seating. Make yourself comfy while waiting for your device to charge, so they don’t go on a one-way trip without you.

-If you must walk away from your device, return periodically to check on the charging progress. Don’t keep fully charged electronics plugged in as other travelers may be equally eager to charge their devices before take off.

Travel Hacks for Summer Vacation!

Search for one traveler to start: When booking travel for a group or family, even three or four people, start searching as if you are looking to travel as a single person. If there are just a few seats left at a lower fare, you can at least grab them and get a partial deal.

Go left: Scientists aren’t precisely sure why people are more likely to turn right than left, but when faced with the choice to go right or left at the airport security line, go left as those lines tend to be shorter.

Pack light: Avoid checked baggage fees by skipping the toiletries. If your trip includes shopping, don’t bring a second suitcase. Instead, wear old (or unloved) clothes that you can toss (or donate) at the end of your trip and replace with souvenirs and new clothes after a shopping spree.

Get a good seat: If you’re deciding between similarly priced flights and one is on a Boeing 767, take that one. The Boeing 767 has fewer of the dreaded middle seats than other planes because it has a 2-3-2 configuration (two seats, an aisle, three seats, another aisle, and two more seats).

Don’t wait: Find a plane ticket price that seems too good to be true? Buy now and think later. Most airlines will give you a free refund within 24 hours of booking if you need to cancel. This will give you enough time to mull over and confirm your travel plans – just be sure to check the airline or travel booking website’s refund policies before booking. When in doubt, call the airline or travel website before booking to review the refund policy.

Eat cheap: Hit the grocery store to stock up on bottled water, snacks and picnic lunches. Not only will you get to eat like a local, but you will save money, too. If you want to eat at a pricey Michelin-starred restaurant, go at lunchtime when you’ll get the same high quality food and service but often at a fraction of the price.
