4 Things to avoid at airport just before you take a flight

There are certain things that you need to avoid when you are about to take a flight


You might surely be overwhelmed just before you are about to take your flight to your most awaited destination, but there are still things that you need to keep in mind. Before you enter the airport, there are certain things that you need to take care about. Here we will be discussing about a few things that you need to avoid before you are taking a flight and are waiting at the airport.

  1. Spend money at duty free – You can purchase snacks and other nibbles from the supermarket instead of the airport where the prices are always exorbitant. Plus you can bring your own water flask. There are some airport that do not sell plastic water bottles but have free filtered water across the terminals.
  2. Packing your travel documents in the suitcase – You might be concerned about the security of your important documents, but it is wise to keep you passports, ID cards and other travel related documents in the bag that you are carrying along and not in the suitcase. Make sure that you have all the important documents that are required for which you need to do some research.
  3. Boarding the plane without a transit plan  – It is important to have a transit plan before you arrive at the destination. Research about the pick-up and drop-off points for the taxi rental services like Lyft and Uber. These services vary from country to country. Sometimes they are not available at the arrival gate, but are available at the parking lot.
  4. Exchanging currency inside the airport – Avoid exchanging foreign currency inside the airport. You could do it before you are travelling through the right resources, but the exchange fees at the airports are usually expensive. You could also use an ATM in the foreign land  to pull out cash but they might also charge a fee that might be substantially smaller than what is charged at the airport.
