5 Mistakes Every First-time Flier Makes
Congratulations, you’ve booked your first flight! Pat yourself on the back, because there are only a few more steps between you and your flying experience. There are some common errors that newbie travelers frequently make. Luckily, once you know what those mistakes are, they are easy to avoid.
1. Packing Too Much
The general rule when you pack for a trip is that you don’t need as much as you think you need.
2. Packing Large Liquids in a Carry-on
If you’re not checking a bag, remember that carry-on liquids, gels, and aerosols have to be 3.4 fluid ounces or less and fit in a clear bag.
3. Forgetting to Check your Passport Expiration
There is nothing quite like the panic that comes from booking a spontaneous vacation and realizing your passport is expired—or not realizing that you and your child need a passport to visit Canada or Mexico. Adding to the challenge is that some countries won’t allow you to visit within six months of your passport’s expiration date in case you take an extra-long vacation and they want to make sure you have a valid passport to travel back to the United States. In short, it never hurts to check your passport’s expiration date and, if necessary, renew it before your next big trip.
4. Getting Lost When You’re On a Tight Schedule
First of all, with the right attitude, getting lost while you travel can be fun. A wrong turn can lead you to a new beach, a new restaurant, or a neighborhood you otherwise would never have discovered. However, if getting lost stresses you out or you have an appointment to keep, don’t forget to pack maps, pick up your hotel’s business card so you have their address readily available to hand to cab drivers, and set a reminder that you can use Google Maps offline.
5. Assuming Your Carry-on Is the Right Size
Domestic and international travel each have a different set of rules when it comes to carry-on bag sizes. Before you head to the airport with your carefully packed bag, make sure your tote qualifies as a carry-on and check your airline’s size restrictions before you leave home.
