10 Reasons to Arrive at the Airport Early


If you're flying for business or pleasure, then you'll want to make sure that you arrive at the airport in plenty of time.

Here's why.

1. By leaving plenty of time to get to the airport, you won't have to worry about the traffic being bad, or the train or bus being delayed.

2. If you do drive to the airport, you'll need to find a parking space. Unless you book your parking space in advance, you might have a long drive round looking for a space at busy times of the day or during the summer. It makes send to allow another few minutes to find a space.

3. You've then got to get to the terminal. You might need to wait for a bus, or have your children and enough luggage for a summer holiday with you. Perhaps you will pay extra to park nearer the terminal next time, so that it is not as stressful.

4. You'll want to have plenty of time to check in. Some airlines will allow you to check in online, so you might be able to save some time there, whereas others will request that you arrive several hours before your flight is due to leave.

5. You might have to go through additional security checks, and so will need to allow time for this.

6. Perhaps you'll need to change money before you fly. Many airports will have bureaux de change, or machines where you can change your money for the local currency you'll need when you arrive.

7. Perhaps you'll need to be able to do some last minute work, or catch up with emails, or will want to check the weather at your destination. Many airports have wi-fi internet access, so that you can stay in touch, even when you're just about to fly.

8. You might want to do some last minute shopping. Whether you need a travel adaptor for your electrical items, or want some duty free perfume, you'll be able to find what you're looking for in the airport shopping areas.

9. If you're hungry, then why not have something to eat at the airport? You can choose from a sandwich and a drink, to a full meal. This can be a good way to keep children entertained, before the flight.

10. By leaving plenty of time to get to the airport, and before your flight, you won't have to panic, and are less likely to forget something, or miss your flight.

Now you know more about what you need to do before your flight, you won't have any excuses for being late for your next flight.
