Top 10 Travel Tips – DFW Airport – Comfort Suites Dallas

Most of us despise having to travel via air. The long lines, security, travel delays, babies screaming, kids kicking. We all want a hassle free flight and trip, so check out our list of top ten travel tips to make your next trip as seamless as possible.

Always pack light and pack wise. Try using packing cubes that can separate your garments and they double as a laundry bag for return flights.

Make sure to arrive early. A general rule of thumb is two hours early for international flights and ninety minutes for domestic travel. This ensures that you will get through TSA and arrive to your gate on time. Everyone wants to be as comfortable as possible, so make sure to try and wear slip on shoes and leave your jewelry in a carry on.


Always keep you ID/Passport in a safe place. Scan copies of all your passports and travel documents and save them to a USB compatible storage device. Make sure you don’t keep the USB in the same place as your passport. You don’t want to be stuck in a foreign country with no documentation and having to deal with the embassy.

Remember to leave contact information (email address, phone number, places that you will be staying) with family and friends so they can get in touch with you in case of emergency.

Register with your embassy so that if there is a problem that arises in the country, your government can contact you and get you to safety.

Always be aware of your surroundings and make sure your valuables are closely guarded. If ever confronted by thieves, surrender any and all valuables. They, unlike your life, can be replaced.

Be sure to check in with your doctor and insurance carrier. You want to be certain get all of your vaccinations when traveling abroad. You also want to verify that your policy covers you while visiting other countries.

When you need some local currency, be sure to use an ATM or go to a bank. The currency exchanges inside of airports and around the city tend to be huge rip offs. The bank will give you the real conversion rate.

When traveling abroad, be cognizant of the countries entrance and exit fees. Some countries will require you to pay a fee that can range from $20 and go up to $200 to enter or leave the country. These fees are not included in the price of your airline ticket.

Countries have different size plugs and voltage, so be certain to bring charger adapters with you.
