Flying Smart is always best and we may not always have our attention when we get down to the weeks or days prior to leaving on our grand adventures or heading home to see family and friends. These tips below can help clear away some of the confusion or be reminders of stuff we may already know but don’t practice on a regular basis.

Tip #1 to Fly Smart: Understand your rights and responsibilities as a passenger

Tip #2 to Fly Smart: Know the fare rules that apply to your ticket

Tip #3 to Fly Smart: Call ahead with special requests

Tip #4 to Fly Smart: Be sure to have all of your travel documents

Tip #5 to Fly Smart: Don’t miss your flight – keep in touch with your carrier

Tip #6 to Fly Smart: Check in EARLY

Tip #7 to Fly Smart: Know your carrier’s baggage limits(Also ensure that you properly measure your baggage with a measuring tape..dimensions are not the same across the board with all brands out there!)

Tip #8 to Fly Smart: Pack smart – keep your ID, medications and valuables with you

Tip #9 to Fly Smart: Have insurance when you travel (medical and cancellation/interruption advised – don’t assume your credit card or work covers you enough)

Take the time to do your double checking – it’s better to do before flight than after or during….being up in the air isn’t always conducive to great travel experiences.
