Traveler reveals ‘brilliant’ trick to getting through the airport with less faff
GOING through the airport can be a stressful process, especially if you are traveling with a large group.
Often a person gets stuck with the passports, which can be a hassle when you have to hand them out to everyone at check-in, security and at the gate.
Tiktok user Ellen Siegel has shared a “genius” tip to help the passport holder split documents quickly and easily.
In a video, Ellen, who goes by @anywherepluseverywhere, said, “Here’s the easiest travel hack I wish I’d known sooner.
“If you’re the passport manager on a trip, you know how annoying it is trying to find the right passport at the right time.
“Before our last trip, we added stickers to the back. We chose ones that were easily identifiable.”
“Rather than having to open them every time we got to a checkpoint, I was able to quickly look at the back and give them the correct one.”
The video has been viewed 45,000 times and viewers loved this simple tip.
Someone wrote, “I love this advice,” and another simply wrote, “Awesome.”
Others shared their own tips for saving time when checking out their passports.
One person said, “I used a label maker and put everyone’s name on the cover.”
Someone else wrote: “I also keep mine attached to the id page so I don’t have to go back and find the correct one.”
A travel expert has shared a tip on how to get through airport security as quickly as possible without shelling out for a premium ticket.
Nora Dunn revealed that it was all about choosing the right queue.
She wrote on Quora, “Look at the people in line and choose the line with the most business travelers – these people have airport security down to an art.
“If you don’t see a queue with business travellers, at least – at all costs – avoid queues with families (especially families with young children).
“They are notoriously, understandably, slow to sort through their stuff to go through the x-ray machines.”
Here’s the smart way to always skip the long passport lines at the airport – and it’ll cost you next to nothing.
Michael Sørensen, X-ray machine operator at the airport, explained why passengers must remove their electronic devices when going through security checks.
