Gone are the days when flying was so glamorous. Now, airplanes have smaller seats and cramped leg space, while most airlines have additional charges for everything – including snacks and luggage. However, that does not mean that we have to accept everything and just endure travelling by air. Actually, there are many different ways to improve your travel experience, even with the safety regulations and snoring passengers beside you.
Now, let us start with the first tip.
Take Along a Sleep Kit
You can buy a sleep kit, which is available in majority of airport gift shops, or make your own and keep it in your luggage. A sleep kit usually comes with a travel pillow with a U-shape and an eye mask to block the sunlight and glare.
Also bring some earplugs to help block out unwanted sound. If you have an extra budget, go for noise-cancelling headphones since these can make a lot of difference. They have the ability to cancel out the noise such as the cry of babies and sounds released by aircraft engine even if you are listening to music through them.
One last thing you should not forget to bring is a large shawl or small blanket, which you may want to store in your sleep kit. This because it is almost impossible to sleep without one when it is too cold. In the past, airlines provided blankets, but nowadays, they charge extra for them.
Bring a Small and Light Carry-On
At present, some major airlines require passengers to pay extra for checked luggage, no matter what the weight. For this reason, everybody is trying to squeeze in their clothes and gear meant for their 2-week vacation into their carry-on or small backpack, making it a lot heavier than its owner. Keep in mind that flight attendants can make life a little more difficult for those who bring a lot of stuff into the cabin. Even while boarding, they will insist on checking it.
Just follow the guidelines to avoid inconvenience. Bring a small and light carry-on suitcase, which is easy to lift up into the overhead bin. You are also allowed to bring an extra bag, either a purse or laptop bag. This should be able to fit in the space beneath the seat in front, but make sure that there is enough space for your feet.
Prior to Departure, Check the Latest Regulations
Ever since the 9/11 incident, airline regulations have changed from time to time. If at one time it is okay to bring a shampoo bottle in travel size, next time it can be confiscated for going over the carry-on liquid size limit. Before, laptops were allowed in the pocket of the backseat, but not anymore. According to the latest rules, they need to be kept underneath the seat or in the overhead bin, just as your other carry-on stuff.
Avoid the hassle of learning the rules at the last minute by checking the Transportation Security Administration website and that of the airline you will use for travel. Here, you will be able to view the most recent regulations. Share them with your travel friends as well, so that you can all avoid any problems.
