That Airport Security Line Is Getting Long…

Can you believe it’s May already? How lovely Punta Cana was last week!  Stunning blue hues in the water + white sand + sunshine = just what I needed.  What do YOU have on the books to unplug?

I got to hang out with about 30 or 40 other Travel Professionals, learn a ton, & soak up a little vitamin D. I suppose I brought the hot weather and sunshine home with me, it’s gorgeous here in Charlotte!  

I hope you’re having a tremendous first week of May! It’s almost summertime!  Are you ready? 

I thought we could talk about passing through security – and what your options are because I’m currently waiting for my Global Entry appointment & you should know your options if you don’t already!  

Have a great weekend!

If you’ve been to an airport lately, I’m sure you’re aware that sometimes the wait times to get through security can be crazy.

If you’ve ever returned to the U.S. from an international trip, and you don’t already have Global Entry, you’ve probably seen that really nice short line and wished you had the pass to go through!

Today I’m going to fill you in on two different types of security pass-through options and help you figure out which one is better for you.  In the link below, there’s even more info about other programs.

TSA pre-check is $85 and is valid for five years. People breeze right on through, you don’t have to take out their laptop or remove shoes and light jackets, and when running late this can be a lifesaver!  It’s actually a simple process to get enrolled in TSA pre-check.

Global entry is the one you would want to get if you are planning to do a fair amount of international travel. TSA pre-check for US departures only and your global entry is only $15 more to get all the same benefits, but you also get a much faster processing at the customs and border patrol when arriving in the US from another country.

If you don’t plan on taking any international flights, TSA pre-check is still a fabulous option for cutting down on the time you wait in line at the airport.

So if you’d like to get in that short line and not have to do all of these things to board an aircraft because you’re a moderately normal traveler without any security risks, I would encourage you to apply.
