Summer Travel Tips

School is almost out and summer is about to be upon us! Not surprisingly, most people take a vacation during this time of the year. With tons of people traveling, the airport's can get a little hectic and stress levels may be high! Check out our list of tips on how to survive traveling to your summer vacation destination:

1. Shoes Off! Well, for TSA scanning, that is! TSA is generally stressful, but can become even more of a burden with the entire family in tow. Before you reach the TSA agents, remove your shoes, take out all liquids etc. Being prepared before you reach the front of the line will help ensure a smooth process.

2. Bend the Rules. Traveling with the kids? We can almost guarantee that you are going to stray from their normal daily routine...and that's okay! Instead of stressing about a missed bedtime, look on the positive side and go with the flow. The kiddos and your mind will thank you!

3. Fly Mid-Week. Want to beat the crowds? [Who doesn't?!] Try and schedule your flights mid-week and enjoy less crowded flights. Stuck leaving on a weekend? Don't fret! See if any flights leave early in the morning, or later in the evening as these are also fantastic times to fly.

4. Call your Bank. Nothing is worse than being stuck away from home with a frozen bank account because you forgot to call and let your company know you are using your credit card out of the state/country. Do this early [now!] before you forget during the bustle of planning your trip!

5. Make Photocopies! Make multiple copies of your passport, ID, flight information etc. to keep on your person in addition to the real thing. Scan these documents and email them to yourself so that you are always able to access them in the event you lose the originals.

Four Ways to Commemorate Memorial Day

Oftentimes, we spend Memorial Day at the beach or by cooking out at our BBQ...but do we really take anytime to think about the meaning of this holiday? Here are a few ways to celebrate Memorial Day while taking a moment to remember the true meaning of the holiday:

  • Visit local Veterans. Take time out of your day to take a trip to the local Veterans hospital. Bake some cookies or have your children or grandchildren make cards or drawings for the Vets. Additionally, you can contact local nursing homes and visit the residents who have been in the service as well. They will love your company on this special day.
  • Pay Tribute at A Military Cemetery. Buy a bunch of flowers or a few American flags and visit your local military cemetery or war memorial. Reflecting on the sacrifices these men and women have made for our country will put you in a meditative state of mind this Monday.
  • Watch a Parade. Tons of cities put on Memorial Day Parades. If your town isn't participating, you can always watch the national on on television. What a great way to support those walking in the parade and have some fun at the same time!
  • Put together something for those overseas. Spend part of your day making cards, writing letters, or making care packages for the men and women spending holidays overseas. They will appreciate your thanks and even the most basic items such as soap, shampoo, and candy!
Don't forget to make your Detroit Airport Parking reservation with Airlines Parking! We appreciate those in military service!
