Wherever you’re coming from, flying can be a pleasant experience if you’ve planned ahead. Follow these essential travel tips that will get your San Mateo vacation started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • The secret to having a pain-free travel experience is to pack ahead. First up, the essentials: passport, travel documents, credit cards and important medications. Next, bring items that’ll help keep you entertained, like some electronic devices or a few magazines. It’s also a wise idea to bring your chargers, a quality neck pillow and a pair of earphones. Finally, be sure to squeeze in toiletries like a toothbrush, facial wipes and a fresh set of clothes.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Check carefully that you don’t have sharp or pointed objects lurking in one of the zippers of your carry-on luggage. Other banned items include flammable or explosive goods, such as aerosol cans and fuel, and liquids and gels in containers larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Comfort should be your highest priority when picking what to wear on your flight. Consider your footwear choice with care too, as swollen feet and ankles can be a side effect of flying. Roomy, closed-toed shoes are your best bet.
  • Caused by sustained periods of immobility, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that can affect some passengers on long-haul flights. But the great news is there are numerous ways to reduce your risk of developing it. Drink plenty of water, get up and walk around the cabin wherever possible and wear compression socks to help improve your circulation.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to San Mateo?
It’s simple — be prepared. We’ve pulled together some tips and tricks for a hassle-free trip through security. Look out San Mateo, here you come:

  • Keep your ID and boarding pass close by. They’re the first items you’ll be asked for by airport security.
  • Your coat, belt, keys and other contents of your pockets, like your headphones, will need to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process faster by removing them as it gets closer to your turn.
  • For just a few minutes, you’ll have to unplug from technology. Your laptop, phone and any other electronic devices will need to be sent through the scanner.
  • Remove gels and liquids from your carry-on luggage. They often need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Each product should be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit in a quart-size (one liter), clear zip-close bag.
