10 Things You Must Do Before Your Flight


If you're getting ready for a business flight, or a summer holiday, then you'll want to make sure that you've organised everything in advance, so that on the day you fly there's nothing to panic about.

Here's what you'll need to do.

1. You might want to book your flights and accommodation separately, and so you'll need to make sure that you've got all the details you need before you fly. You don't want to discover that you haven't actually booked anywhere to stay!

2. If you plan on traveling around once you arrive, you'll want to make sure that you've sorted out your car hire before your flight. Perhaps you're planning a multi-destination holiday, and want to pick up and leave the hire car at different places.

3. You'll want to know exactly where you're going so that when you arrive you can drive away in your hire car, get on the right bus or train, or tell the taxi driver where you're going. You don't want to have to make expensive and time consuming phone calls from the airport if you haven't got the right information to hand.

4. You'll need to leave plenty of time to get to the airport, so that even if the traffic is bad, you won't be late. Will you need to finish work early, or take the children out of school in order to catch your flight?

5. You'll need to find somewhere to park, which can take time, especially at busy times of day. Why not book your car parking online and save yourself time as well as money?

6. The time needed to check in will vary from airline to airline, and can be dependent on where you're flying to. You'll need to make sure that you arrive at the airport in plenty of time for your flight.

7. You might want to use the internet whilst you're waiting for your flight so that you can catch up with some vital work, or to check the weather conditions at your destination. You might also want to inform people if you're flight details have changed too.

8. By getting your currency before you go abroad, you won't have to go into a bank abroad and change travellers' cheques. Having currency on your person as you fly will also mean that you can pay for your taxi, or a meal as you arrive, rather than having to look for a bank or an ATM at the airport.

9. You might want to eat at the airport, perhaps you're going on a long flight and don't want to be hungry, or perhaps it's only a short flight, and you won't have time for a meal before your business meeting when you land.

10. You'll also want to do any last minute shopping before you fly. Perhaps you want another memory card for your camera, or some first aid items, or a book or magazine to read on the flight. You might even want to take advantage of duty free shopping, and buy luxury goods at a reduced price.

Now you know what sort of things you need to do before you fly, are you organized for your next flight?
