2) Arrange transportation ahead of time. Getting a shuttle or limousine is your best bet. I always go with the highest reviews on Google Plus.

Unfortunately, some people do not display airplane etiquette no matter how often they take to the sky. It may just be that common respect and courtesy are tossed to the side when people have to deal with flight delays, flight cancellations, exorbitant baggage rates and long lines.

If you are guilty of being less than courteous while traveling on an airplane, there are some tips you can begin to implement in your future travels.
Do Not Take Over The Overhead Area
Most people use the overhead space these days in order to prevent paying high baggage fees. They are now boarding planes with one carry-on bag and one personal bag. Passengers have to share this space, so it is best to know the rule.

There are still many people who have never been on an airplane in their entire lives. Then there are the people who take flights every so often for vacation, to see family, for business and other purposes. And then there are those few select people who are able to enjoy traveling as a lifestyle. Some of these people are retired and prefer an airplane over RV travel, and others are those who can take their jobs with them as they travel all over the world by airplane.
When you are a frequent flyer, it helps to know things, such as planning your flights in the middle of the week. This may seem obvious in order to avoid the weekends, but some people would choose a Sunday, a Monday or even a Thursday; instead, plan your flight on a Tuesday or a Wednesday, as your ticket will be cheaper and the airport isn’t going to be as crowded.

When you are considering airport travelling, you can never be overly prepared. You can easily become complacent when you travel often and think that you do not need to take special travel precautions. However, it does not matter how frequently you travel or the length of your trip, it is best that you are protected during your travels. By completing a few steps before you board the plane, you will ensure your safety and comfort during your trip.
Purchase Travel Insurance
You should never travel out of your country without making sure you are properly insured. Flight cancellations, sickness, safety issues and other unexpected problems can arise while you are traveling. Even an injury such as a broken arm can leave you under financial strain if the injury occurs while you are traveling abroad.
Travel insurance is beneficial for short term and long term trips. The insurance does not cost a lot, and can make stressful events more manageable. Find a travel insurance company that can best meet your needs.
Make Copies Of Your Documents
It is a wise idea to make a copy of important documents such as your driver’s license and passport. They can quickly become misplaced or lost while you are traveling. A copy of each document should remain at home or with a trusted friend, and a set of these documents should be in the luggage you are traveling with.
Although you can enter into another country with a passport copy, you may be able to get back into your own home country with a copy. Also find out where the Consulate or Embassy is for your country in the location where you are.
Get A Credit Card For Traveling
You should have a separate credit line that is used strictly for your airport traveling lifestyle. This credit card should not have a high limit. This will protect you against fraud and from spending too much while you are away.
These are a few of the tips you can consider for your airport traveling lifestyle. Stay updated on the area where you are traveling to ensure you safety while you are away.
