Travelling by air is always an exciting experience and it helps save a lot of time. However, the long drive to the airport and the endless wait for the flight before you can get airborne can be very frustrating. Here are six travel hacks that can help you make air travel stress-free.

Carry earplugs

While modern amenities at the airport offer you comfort and luxury, noise levels at the airport lounge can be deafening at times. The constant announcements over the speaker (unless it is a silent airport) and the jangling of luggage trolleys can drive you mad. The best way to avoid this disturbance is to have a set of earplugs in your hand luggage. You can silently slip them on and have a power nap, oblivious to what is happening around you.

Travel Pillow

It is natural that you would feel the need to rest and take a short nap as you wait for your flight. However, trying to catch a few winks while in the seated position can cause a lot of strain to your shoulders and neck. The ideal solution is to have a travel pillow that you can place behind your shoulders and take some rest without feeling stressed out.

A comfortable pair of socks

Airports can get cold at times as you have heavy air-conditioning. Wearing your regular socks can be uncomfortable because your feet can become cold. A pair of comfortable socks should be at the top of your packing list. Don’t worry about liquids – Use solid deodorants/perfumes

Air travel rules prohibit you from carrying liquid deodorants and perfumes in your hand baggage due to security concerns. You can get over this issue by carrying solid deodorants and perfumes

Book a car/make travel arrangements in advance

As soon as you land at your destination, waiting endlessly for your car to arrive to pick you up can be annoying. Be proactive and book your car rentals in advance, to save time and have a hassle-free travel.

Make use of the airport lounge
