If you're logging up air miles fast great, but also on the other hand the airport stops becoming that exciting place where great things are going to happen but a complete monotonous bore!  If flying is a part of your monthly or even weekly routine then zooming through the airport has become an art form.  Well here are some tips that might help....if you didn't already know them....

1.  Frequent flying also means frequent moving... charge whereever humanly possible.  Sometimes that last bit of juice can create miracles.  

 2.  Clothing that can triple up, blanket, pillow and jacket, if you opt for a fleece you'll be able to use this is a towel as well. 

3.  Try and book airlines that have wifi connected always makes life a lot easier if working on that last minute presentation.  Not just useful for in-flight entertainment.  

4.  Always take a bottle of water with you, for several reasons.  Frequent flyers will often be more dehydrated and reaching up for that call button can be time consuming let alone the fact RSI might already be kicking in. 

5.  Try and top up with vitamins, minerals and generally good food, frequent flyers are generally more prone to colds and flu.  Plane air conditioning systems are festivals for bacteria as well as the fact that flying really can be tiring at times.  It's important to keep in ship shape. 

6.  Rental cars as destinations can get pricey so try and reserve beforehand if possible.  Brokers are great and usually have good deals rather than going directly to the rental company.  Or ask your hotel to arrange an airport collection in an executive car if you prefer something a little more luxurious. 

7.  A terrible thought but travelling also means your prone to being robbed especially if you look like you're the gadget king, so back up any important documents to DropBox for example.  Will save your bacon come 9am. 

8.  If you want to plan your flight exit route in advance we recommend SeatGuru.com a great website where you can search by any airline or flight number. 

9.  Don't look at the security queue length, go on the speed of the security agent, we're all human and all have bad days so don't hold it against them even if you're red in the face.  To state the obvious stay away from wheelchairs and baby buggies.  

10.  On a lighter note and an issue that seems to be part of those comedy sketches annoying comedians tell... arm rest... take a minute and think back how many times the person next to you feels they own rights to the whole plane.. leg room, arm rest everything.. well we've decided you have 2 options on this matter... upgrade immediately to first class or sneeze. 85-75691-4

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU LOSE YOUR SUITCASE 

 Losing your suitcase either end of your journey is never going to be pleasant so despite all the drama it may involve you need to think straight so the insurance companies cannot use any excuse to sting you.  Some insurance companies declare that you submit your claim on the spot in the airport and while you are running round trying to fine the case the last thing you want to do is spend an hour on the phone (or on hold) to an insurance company that can't really help you, only to resolve the issue in weeks to come.  So here is how to beat the system..... 

lost-luggage

Weather your luggage is lost or damaged the best course of action is to contact the airline, and sadly the majority will claim that 21 days is the limit to when you can start to claim compensation.  In the meantime try and locate as many receipts, statements as possible for the contents of the suitcase.  The more the better as you will very unlikely get the full value of the contents.  Another reason why it is important to keep valuables on you at all time.  

 If your luggage is damaged contact us and we will try and help you as best as possible if it is a warranty issue.  This can be resolved fairly easily and we can send you a replacement as soon as possible.  

Take a picture of your luggage before check in, simple but very effective and can come in handy if they ask you to prove its previous condition.  If the case is damaged at retrieval take more pictures, if possible on the belt and present this to the airline information desk.  Do not just leave the airport, as you will not be able to claim.  You cannot claim general wear and tear, ie scratches, dents, minor cuts, damage or loss of straps.  If the case is beyond repair the airline will give you a file number for your complaint and take a note of the rep that helped you with the claim.  Find out what the next step is and realistic timings. 

In the event that your bag is not even movable you can insist on a replacement so don't be shy to ask, they do keep spares for this reason. 

This is a very rare situation, but if you're cabin luggage is lost during a flight you will only be able to make a claim if it is the airlines fault.  Make sure your cabin luggage as well as your hold luggage is labeled, this will help a lot if you do need to make a claim.  

 

NOTE:  Please ensure when making your decision that you check the airlines baggage allowance, we have a guide online that will be of help - http://www.hideowakamatsu.co.uk/faq/baggage-allowance-guide
