Top Airport Hacks To Help You Travel Smarter

airport hacks to help you travel smarter

Don’t let a bad airport experience ruin your travel. Check out these airport hacks before you leave home!

Whether you’re traveling for business, your annual timeshare week, or the trip of a lifetime, the airport is usually the worst part of the journey. With a little planning and these airport hacks, you can minimize the airport hassle and travel smarter.

Pack Smart Snacks

Airport food is limited, expensive and often not very good. Save yourself the expense and stay nourished by bringing your own food. Of course, no list of airport hacks would be complete without talking about security. Make sure whatever you bring complies with TSA regulations. Some airports will ask you to remove food from your bag. So, separate food into its own plastic bag so you can easily unpack and repack it. They generally allow solid foods, but if you do need to bring liquids like salad dressing or olive oil, pack those in TSA-compliant toiletry bottles.

Keep Your Boarding Pass Handy

Sure, we can do everything digitally on our smartphones, but sometimes an app is glitchy or the Wi-fi fails. Don’t get stuck at the front of the line with no boarding pass. Instead, print your boarding pass or take a screenshot. In fact, that old-fashioned paper boarding pass is much faster. No more pulling it up on your phone and fumbling with your password either.

Pack an Empty Water Bottle

As you know, TSA does not allow passengers to bring water through security but staying hydrated while traveling is a must. Instead of shelling out $3 for a bottle of water in the airport, bring your own empty water bottle and fill it up once you pass security. You’ll be refreshed, save some cash, and eliminate another plastic bottle from the landfill.

Be in Charge

Most of us are so dependent on our devices these days for music, books, movies and our boarding passes. The last thing you want to do is run out of battery life while traveling. Stuck in the middle seat with nothing to read or watch? No, thanks! Avoid that by charging up all devices in advance. Then bring a portable charger for charging on the go. Although you’ll be able to charge devices in some airports and on some airplanes, that’s not a guarantee. Finally, make sure you bring all your chargers, cords, and earbuds. The airport will probably have them for sale but not at a price you want to pay.

Know Your Airport

One of the difficult things about airports is they’re often unfamiliar. Not knowing where you’re going is hard enough in a regular situation, but if you’re running late for your connection, getting lost can ruin everything. Avoid this pitfall and look up the airport layout in advance. You can find maps of most airports online. Take note of bathroom locations. Check out the restaurants and shops. And find out where you can get a cab, rideshare, or shuttle. No one wants to drag luggage all around the airport when they could be on the way to the beach.

Make Good Connections

Not all airports are created equal. In fact, some are the stuff of nightmares. Sometimes the best airport hacks involve avoiding an airport altogether. If you can choose airports to connect through, choose good ones! You’re looking for on-time flights, fewer crowds, and solid amenities. Skip O’Hare and LAX and opt for Minneapolis/St. Paul or Denver. A nice space with ample seating, outlets, dining, and clean bathrooms can make all the difference in a long—or short—layover.

We hope these airport hacks will help you make the most out of your travel experience. Find more travel hacks and tips here and here.

Relieve Yourself of the Unwanted Timeshare Burden

Your information is 100% secure and encrypted. We will never sell or share your information with anyone.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
