The airport is not always the most convenient and stress free place to be but with these airport travel tips we hope to make your travel experience just a little bit easier.

Be prepared for the experience.

Travel Tip 1. The first thing you should do is dress comfortably. Avoid wearing belts and lace up shoes. This will not only make your experience less invasive but it will also save you time when passing through the security check.

Travel Tip 2. Pack organized. Packing luggage in layers increases visibility when baggage is scanned. Pack any loose metal objects in your carry-on. Also try to only pack necessities in your carry-on. You want to keep it as light as possible to make things easier on yourself.

Travel Tip 3. Always have prescription cards for all medications to avoid hassle. Medication should always be in its original packaging. Security will want to know what you are bringing on the plane so make it as easy for them as possible.

Travel Tip 4. Allow enough time for any unforeseen delays. Traffic, lost luggage, forgotten documents, or additional security procedures can all cause you to be late to the airport and miss a flight. Do your best to avoid these by planning ahead and following all of HLS’s Airport Travel Tips.

Travel Tip 5. When choosing a car service:
Choose a vendor that is detail oriented. A good vendor tracks all flights incoming and departing and is always 3 steps ahead of the process. From the booking of a reservation up until you are taken safely to your destination every aspect of your experience should be performed to perfection.

A great car service has chauffeurs that are well versed in client satisfaction and the logistics of the area that they service. They will have all the best travel solutions available to accommodate all of your needs. However, you should always confirm that your chauffeur knows what area you need to be taken to. The last thing you want is for someone to leave you at the wrong side of the airport because they didn’t verify the correct location. A good company will know ahead of time but you should always verify as soon as you get in the car. If you’re using a car service ask what their policy is for airport transfers.

Express Pick Up Vs. Meet and Greet

Ask about your vendor’s pick up procedures. Some companies prefer to meet inside the terminal and have the chauffeur escort the passenger to the vehicle. Others however, offer an additional option known as an Express Pick Up. This option can save you time and money. By avoiding parking costs the passenger would call the car service when they have their luggage and the dispatcher will direct them to where their chauffeur will be waiting to assist them.
