Tip 79: Use the Designated Cell Phone Lots at Airports

We love picking up our friends and loved ones from the airport. However, it can be tricky perfectly timing our arrival at the airport with their stepping out onto the curb with their bags. To ensure a timely pickup without the need for our guests to wait, check out the designated cell phone lots.

Most airports now have spacious, designated parking spots in near proximity to the passenger pick up area. They’re safe,convenient and there is no need to keep circling the airport. If you’re lucky, you may even find a public restroom available while you wait!

Mobile boarding pass

Tip 31: Electronic boarding passes

Electronic boarding pass or paper? We often prefer an electronic or mobile when not checking a bag which helps you skip the airline counter all together. The main tip we have is to take a screen shot or save it to your phone before you head to security so you do not run into issues where there is a pour internet signal once you get in to the security area. Trust us on this one.

Also, most machines read the boarding pass best when the screen is fully lit so you may need to adjust your phone settings.
