Travel Tips – The Main Advantages Of Checking In Online

April 4, 2013 Posted by Admin

As exciting as traveling abroad can be, airports can be overwhelming. Doing a round the world trip for instance can have you spend significant amounts of time at airports; time that will be much better spent sightseeing or maybe even catching up on some sleep. Apart from delays (and there’s always delays) one of the biggest time wasters when flying abroad is with checking in. Most airlines advice that you turn up a minimum of 3 hours before departure. Thankfully online check-ins were introduced and offers some great options. Here are some of the main advantages.

Firstly, it’s a great time saver. You can simply go online up to 24 hours before your scheduled departure and do your check in on over the internet. Once you’ve done that, you only need to turn up 1 hour before your scheduled departure and at some airports – as little as 45 minutes. All you really need to do is to stop at the counter, present the print out you got on the internet and hand in your luggage. That’s’ it. No standing in queues and slogging around all your luggage for hours on end.

Another amazing advantage of checking in online is the fact that you can book your seat in advance. How many times were you sandwiched in between two heavyweights way at the back of the plane only because you turned up a few minutes late? When you check in online you get to see the seat layout and you can see it fill up in real-time. If you get in early you can pick yourself the best seat and if you are traveling with a partner you can make sure you sit next to each other.

Online check ins take a lot of stress out of flying. The day you fly out is always a mad rush and taking care of this before you even leave home is a great advantage. Use it and make your entire trip less stressful and more enjoyable.
