So much fun! Visit JetBlue to explore how-to arrive at your next family vacation destination in style.
Cool tips from JetBlue for Summer Travel
1. Get TSA Pre✓®
Americans’ least favorite part about airport security is waiting in line. Luckily in June 2016, the average wait time in a TSA Precheck line was 5 minutes. For a $85 five-year membership, you can speed through security and not have to remove your shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets. If you plan to travel outside the U.S. in the next five years, opt for Global Entry instead. For an additional $15, you can bypass long U.S. Customs lines–and still be eligible for TSA Precheck.
2. Pack sunscreen
Sunscreen is always important, but especially during the summer when the UV exposure is the greatest. Though sunscreen can be purchased at the gift shops in most hotels and resorts, these are often overpriced. You can save money by bringing a bottle of sunscreen in your checked baggage or squeeze them into a 3-oz travel-size bottle if you’re carrying on only.
3. Don’t forget aloe vera
Not only is aloe vera lotion super moisturizing after a long day out in the sun, it’s also a quick, cooling remedy for sunburn incidents. By also freezing aloe gel in ice cube trays or bags you can add an extra layer of coolness to your hot sunburnt skin.
4. Roll clothes instead of folding them
Maximize space in your luggage by packing smarter and tighter. Visually section off your luggage and organize by type of clothing: Bottom section by wheels is for shoes, middle section is for bottoms/pants, and top layer is for tops, swimwear and undergarments.
5. Keep clothes fresh
With all those summer activities and excursions planned, be sure to bring an extra bag to separate clean and dirty clothes. Stuff a couple of dryer sheets in between clothes to keep them smelling fresh.
6. Shatter-proof your makeup
The absolute worst is finding your powder and eye shadow compacts shattered from the jostling of your luggage. To keep powered makeup from breaking, put a cotton ball or pad inside your compacts.
7. Put your phone in airplane mode
When charging your phone at the airport in a charging station, put your phone on airplane mode so it can charge faster and free up an outlet.
8. Stay hydrated and save money
Food and beverages—including water—usually cost more at airports. Bring an empty water bottle or canteen, and refill it at the airport post-security. Many JetBlue airports, including Terminal 5 at JFK, provide water-filling stations that offer cool, clean drinking water for free to all customers.
9. Get to the gate first
Once you’re through security, go to your gate before using the restroom, getting food, shopping, wandering around, etc. You will get a better sense of how far away your gate is from everything, and know first-hand if there are any delays or travel updates.
10. Put all of your ‘stuff for the plane’ in one area
Have a designated pocket in your carry on with necessary things for the plane ride.
