People always have questions about traveling…and that’s what we’re here for! So we’ve collected some of our agents favorite travel tips to share with you! Hopefully they can make your next trip a little smoother and less stressful.
From the desk of VZT Leisure Agent Sonia: “It always seems that while I’m on vacation or traveling, something that I meant to pack does not make in into my bags. So, for the past couple years, I have kept a running checklist where I add/delete items so that come next time I travel, my list is ready to go. I’m sure to pack this list in with my suitcase and it travels with me, this way if I think of something else, I can add it immediately to my list instead of trying to remember what it was when I get home. When my vacation is over, I update my list and make two copies. One goes in my suitcase and the other in my carry-on. This way, whether it’s a short weekend get-away or a 2 week stay, my list is the first thing I see when I begin the final preparation of my departure.”
From the desk of VZT Corporate Agent Peggy: “If you are at your connecting city and want to find out if your flight is on-time but your flight originates in the connecting city so of course it says ON TIME. If you are within 1 hour of the flight departing, look at the arrival screens find the gate of your flight on the arrival screen, that will most likely be your arriving flight. See how that flight is running and you should know if you have a chance of getting out on-time. It does not take into consideration gate changes but at least you can play the odds. ”
From the desk of VZT Corporate Agent Liz: “Call for help! If you’ve missed a connection, or your flight is cancelled, get in line to speak with a gate agent, and then give us a call from your cell phone. By calling us, you are essentially jumping the line, giving you a better shot at securing a seat on the next flight. You may still need the gate agent to issue you a new boarding pass, so don’t get out of line.”
