Check-in Online

Your ticket instructions always ask you to come to the airport three hours before and check-in with your airline desk, but the better option is to go to your airline website and check-in 24 hours prior to your flight departure time. First of all, you must check whether your departing airport is listed on their website if yes then you can go ahead with your check-in. Usually all the airports such as Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, Luton Airport and Stansted Airport accepts online check-ins.

Bring your own plastic bag

If you travelled before you will know that the security rules requires separating all liquid and sharp objects in a clear bag from hand luggage. It is best to not carry such items for short travels but if you are planning to take some then separate it at home  so that you can save a lot of queuing time when separating these items.

Make your luggage easily identifiable

More often than not there will be other similar looking suitcases on the conveyor belt and you will miss you suitcase looking at someone else. So if you tie a unique piece of cloth around the handle of your suitcase it will be a lot easier for you to identify your luggage.   It is also a good idea to buy a small padlock and lock your suitcase so that no one can take anything out of your suitcase or sneak something in.
