TSA Tips for Thanksgiving Travel

TSA tips for Thanksgiving travel

Free Consultation

TSA expects record numbers this Thanksgiving travel season. Get through fast with these TSA tips.

The Transportation Security Administration issued a statement about the upcoming 2018 Thanksgiving travel season: “The number of passengers expected to be screened at Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoints across the country this Thanksgiving season is expected to be extremely high. From Friday, November 16 through Monday, November 26, more than 25 million travelers—one of TSA’s busiest Thanksgivings on record—will be screened at airport checkpoints during the holiday travel period, nearly a 7 percent increase compared to last year.” You won’t be able to avoid the crowds entirely, so use these TSA tips to travel smart this Thanksgiving

Ask TSA

Did you know you can get real time TSA help with your questions? Wondering if your items will pass? Concerned about your electronics? No problem. You can tweet or message any questions to AskTSA at @AskTSA or on Facebook messenger weekdays between 8 am and 10 pm and weekends or holidays from 9 am and 7 pm. You can also email TSA questions. Not that into computers? Give TSA a call at 866-289-9673.

Pack Smart

The more items you bring, the more items TSA must screen, which slows down the line. So, make things easy on everyone and simply bring less through the check-point. Then make sure all your items comply with TSA regulations. Check this handy guide to make sure.

Once you’ve narrowed your choices to just what you need and what TSA will allow, pack them correctly. Follow the 3-1-1- rule and pack all liquids 3.4 ounces or less in one quart-sized bag and check the rest. Also keep in mind that you may have to remove most electronics and food for the scanners. The removing and repacking takes time. So limit these items and make them easy to get out and put back in.

Dress for TSA

What should you wear when you hang out with TSA? TSA tips suggest limiting the number of items you wear. Put the statement necklaces and cool scarves in your luggage along with your complicated lace-up boots.

Get There Early

A missed flight could easily ruin your trip, so don’t risk it! Instead, plan to arrive at the airport early. TSA suggests arriving at the airport two hours early to ensure you have time to get through security. But the keyword here is arrive. Traffic on the ground is also likely, so give yourself extra time to get from your house to the airport.
