A greeter can help expedite your wait at customs and immigration at most airports throughout the world. They are also extremely helpful when you have a tight connection – especially in confusing foreign airports. They can shuttle you from terminal to terminal the quickest, most efficient way and often have access to all fast pass lines, etc.
One of the biggest headaches in travel today is simply getting through some of the many bottle necks – chiefly security and, when applicable, customs and immigration. These memberships expedite all of these pain points, allowing you to spend less time at the airport (or worse, at the airport – in line) and more time on vacation, or the office, etc. Even when traveling on a premium ticket these memberships can save you time in line.
If getting through security is one of the biggest headaches in travel, checking luggage and waiting at baggage carousel is a close second. To avoid this seasoned travelers ship their luggage ahead of them and travel light.
Even when pressurized, the atmosphere in planes is the equivalent of being many meters above sea level, which is why you’re quicker to dehydrate, and why alcohol has a stronger effect than usual. Add in time changes, and flying can be really hard on your system. Experts counteract this by laying off the booze, which magnifies dehydration and instead load up on water, while eating light and stimulating circulation by exercising before, after, and even during a flight.
Even if you are the most seasoned traveler, chances are you don’t do it for a living, which is exactly what travel advisors do. They constantly have their finger on the pulse of new travel trends, pitfalls, and travel hacks. They also save astute travelers time and often money.
