Pick the Right Day
When you are planning to go to the airport, it is important to think about the day you are choosing. Not a lot of people know this but, airports are busy on Monday mornings, Thursday evenings, and almost every day during the holidays. The rest of the days are the perfect days for airport travel; both human and vehicle traffic are at a minimal and the queues tend to be shorter. However, if you cannot avoid these days, ensure that you give yourself plenty of time to get to the airport and to go through security and boarding to avoid doing that panic-stricken dash a lot of us are familiar with.
Anyone who has ever stood at baggage claim for a few minutes has noticed how similar most of the luggage looks. Chances are, someone has the same exact suitcase/bag you have, perhaps even several people. A lot of travelers even confuse their luggage for other persons’, so to help you quickly identify your belongings and make the baggage claim process much smoother, mark your luggage with a name tag. You could even go as far as attaching brightly colored ribbons to help you identify all your luggage from a distance.
