International flights can be tricky sometimes irrespective of the fact whether you are a frequent flyer or it is your first time. When you spend a lot of time on long international flights, it is often that you wish someone had told you about easy travel hacks.
So if you are also planning to travel abroad, don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Here are some easy hacks that’ll save you from a lot of trouble:
Dress smart and don’t go overboard
The most important thing is to dress smartly. And by smart, we mean that your attire should be something in which you feel comfortable. Please avoid wearing skin-tight clothes. They’ll cause you a lot of trouble during long flights.
If you are traveling to a cold country, pack your coat in the check-in baggage. You can wear it before leaving the terminal. This way you’ll keep your hands free during the journey.
Always carry a pen
A pen is a very small thing, but it can prove to be very useful especially at the airport. Often you can see many people asking around for a pen at the airport, so save yourself this trouble and always carry a pen in your travel wallet.
Be nice to people
Always be nice to people and they’ll be nice to you. Always ask questions politely, this will motivate the people to willingly help you with any task, like a seat reassignment.
Restroom breaks should be planned accordingly
If you are seated in economy class in the window or middle seats, then make sure that your restroom business is finished when one of the others in that row decide to go themselves. This is polite and the other person will be very grateful.
Supporting documents should be kept handy
Always keep your supporting documents handy, especially 30 minutes prior to landing. Essential documents like passport, customs form and any other supporting documents should be kept separately in your hand-baggage so that you can access them easily.
