Tips for Stress-Free Summer Travel

-Book your ticket ASAP. If you must book last minute, remember, you have options. The key to securing the best deal is flexibility in trael dates-ask your travel agent to check special fares or consider flying into an alternate airport and renting a car. If your vacation includes international travel, make sure you have a valid passport. Your travel agent can advise you on the new rules and how to apply.

-Arrive early. Difficult airport parking, long lines at security checkpoints and the possibility of the airline overselling the flight and bumping passengers, should all be considered when deciding what time to arrive at the airport. Give yourself plenty of extra time. Need some incentive? Keep in mind that those who arrive earliest for an overbooked flight stand the greatest chance of staying onboard.

-Keep a close eye on all your belongings. Be aware of your surroundings and maintain a close watch over tickets, wallets, purses, and other belongings at all times.

-Remember 3-1-1. New regulations limit the amount of liquids passengers can take through security in their carry-on luggage to travel size toiletries of three ounces or less that fit comfortably in one-1 quart size clear plastic zip-top bag and -1 bag per passenger must be placed in the screening bin.

-Know your limits. Pack light and know baggage limits. Some airlines now charge for a second piece of checked luggage.
