Oh airport security, I am so happy that you exist to keep us safe, but I am never excited to wait in line with a bunch of grumpy people. Who is with me?
Here are 4 easy ways to go through the lines and airport security a little bit faster:
Sign up for Clear: These people are brilliant. For $15 per month you can skip the lines and jump right to the front with Clear Click here to get 2 months free!
Apply for TSA Pre-Check: The process to get approved for TSA Pre-check is a little bit more complex than Clear, but the advantages are similar. You have to apply online as well as do an in-person interview at a local enrollment center. It also costs $85 for 5 years, which makes it a bit cheaper than Clear, but less convenient. Also, check with your credit card company to see if they cover the costs of TSA Pre-Check, some do depending on the type of card you have.
Get Airline Elite Status: Many airlines allow their elite members to join the first-class passengers in the priority lane even if you are not flying first class.
Fly in Premium Class: If you are willing to pay for First Class, Delta One, SkyPriority, Premier Access, etc. then you get the luxury of using the priority lane, which can save you a little bit of time.
