Whether you're jet-setting around the globe or just planning a quick getaway, I've got some cool travel tricks up my sleeve you might not have heard of yet.
So, we all know the hassle of planning a trip, right? Choosing where to go, booking flights, making those epic itineraries, and, of course, cramming everything into your suitcase without going over the weight limit. Phew!

With summer fast approaching, it's prime time to share some travel wisdom. I mean, have you seen how packed airports are getting? And don't even get me started on those skyrocketing airfare prices.

Here's one hack I recently discovered and can't stop raving about: TSA Pre-Check. Seriously, it's a game-changer. last year, I breezed through the enrollment process in less than ten minutes at Williston's XWA Airport. They take your fingerprints, snap a quick pic, you fill out a form, and boom, you're set for five years for just $78.

Curious about TSA Pre-Check? There's a special enrollment event happening in Williston from April 15 to 19. You can sign up during the week, Monday to Friday, between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. Here's the link to apply or renew: https://tsaenrollmentbyidemia.tsa.dhs.gov

Once you've got TSA Pre-Check, say goodbye to the hassle of taking off your shoes, pulling out your laptop, or ditching your belt at security. It's a breeze, trust me, even if you're not a frequent flyer. And if you're into international travel, consider snagging Global Entry instead because you don't need both.

Now, let's talk personal travel tips to make your journey smoother than ever. I never leave home without my trusty disinfecting wipes – perfect for giving those grimy tray tables a good scrub. And have you tried Ziploc Space Bags for packing? Absolute lifesavers!

Oh, and here are a few more hacks I swear by:

  • Use CBD to tackle jet lag and travel anxiety. Seriously, it's a game-changer.
  • Don't drain your bank account on flights. Check out apps like Hopper, Skyscanner, and Google Flights for sweet deals.
  • Keep your clothes smelling fresh with dryer sheets and pack a zipper pillowcase for extra space. Pack an extra outfit in your carry-on.
  • Download Google Maps offline to avoid getting lost in a foreign city.
  • Tangle-free jewelry with cling wrap. If you don't have a travel jewelry case, just wrap your necklaces and bracelets in cling wrap, preventing them from getting all tangled up. It takes up very little suitcase or carry-on space.

So, what about you? Any travel hacks you swear by? I'm all ears! Safe travels, friends.
