Learn the Dos and Don'ts of Airport Travel

Navigating the airport and getting to your gate on time can be a hassle, especially if there’s a long line at security. Whether it’s your first time flying or you’re a frequent traveler, you can benefit from brushing up on the basic dos and don’ts. For starters, do check airport parking rates ahead of time, and do take advantage of extra perks like luggage assistance.

Do stay on top of the latest regulations and restrictions.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) establishes restrictions on what you can and can’t take on an airplane. As security needs change over time, so too do these regulations. Before packing for your trip, check the TSA’s website to look up the latest security screening guidelines. This is especially important if you need to take medications or medical supplies with you, or if you plan to carry food or liquids on board. Electronics can also be subject to restrictions. If you have a questionable item that isn’t listed on the website, use the AskTSA feature on social media to check directly with an agent.

Don’t leave for the airport at the last minute.

Even if you do take advantage of an airport parking company’s valet service or shuttle service, you should always give yourself more time to get to your gate than you think you’ll need. Expect long delays at the security checkpoint and baggage check, even if you’re traveling during an “off” time.

Do behave courteously toward your fellow travelers.

Travelers who are new to flying can inadvertently commit faux pas that annoy their fellow travelers. Do remember that sound carries easily in a plane, and use a quiet voice to converse. Odors will also linger in a plane, and may even make other passengers feel ill. Avoid wearing perfume or body spray, and avoid packing food with strong odors.

Travel can be stressful, but getting to and from the airport doesn’t have to be. Choose Park Plus Airport Parking for great rates on short-term, mid-term, and long-term parking at JFK in New York. Call a friendly member of our staff at (718) 529-1234, and be sure to ask us about our luggage assistance, complimentary shuttle service, and valet service.

How to Travel with Kids and Keep Your Sanity

Kids can learn much beyond the classroom. Traveling around the country and the globe is a great way to introduce them to new cultures and landscapes. But traveling with kids is certainly not without its difficulties. Just getting from the long-term parking lot to the airport terminal can be a hassle. Make life easier on yourself and your family with the following quick tips.

Bring pre-portioned snacks.

The airline will have plenty of snacks available, but do you really want to pay for an overpriced snack box stuffed with sodium? Always check with the airline ahead of time to find out if there are any restrictions on bringing food and liquids on board. Generally, foods are allowed as long as they are wrapped or in a closed container. Bring sealed baggies of pretzels and dry cereal, along with whole fruit or fruit slices. Don’t forget to bring some sugarless gum. Even if your kids don’t generally chew gum, they’ll probably want to when their ears start popping from the air pressure changes.

Choose kid-friendly accommodations.

Even if you’re traveling with an infant, you’ll want accommodations that offer some separation between the bedroom and other areas. Your kids will probably go to bed much earlier than you, and you’ll appreciate being able to read or watch TV without waking them up.

Use a valet service.

Parents of young kids swear by airport parking valet services. It’s no easy feat to get the kids from the car to the airport terminal for the departure, and then back again when you arrive back home. A valet will even handle your luggage for you. Compared to taking a taxi, using a valet service will allow you to simply leave your child’s car seat in the vehicle.

Park Plus Airport Parking is pleased to offer our world-class valet service to travelers arriving at Newark or JFK. A DropUp valet will drive you in your own car directly to your airport terminal, and pick you up upon your arrival. Call (718) 529-1234 to inquire about parking at JFK in New York, or call (973) 273-1500 for our parking service at Newark Airport in New Jersey.

How to Back into Your Airport Parking Spot

There’s plenty of competition for the best parking spaces at Newark Airport, so do a little research ahead of time to find a good deal. When you do get to your space, you can back into it effortlessly by following the steps outlined in this featured video. This driving instructor uses a diagram to clearly explain the steps, and you’ll also see a driver demonstrate them.

Remember to check behind your car and constantly scan your mirrors, as pedestrian safety is your highest priority. Pull the car about halfway past the space, angled away from the spot. Then, turn the wheel toward the direction of the parking space while driving in reverse. As your car passes the parking space line, turn your wheel in the opposite direction to straighten the vehicle.

See How Luggage Assistance Can Make a Long Trip Feel Shorter

When you’re exhausted from a long flight, the idea of lugging around heavy suitcases probably doesn’t appeal to you. Even if your suitcases seemed manageable when you departed, they’re probably loaded down with souvenirs now that you’ve returned home to the tristate area. At Park Plus Airport Parking, we aim to provide the highest level of customer care. We’ll greet you with a friendly smile and do all the heavy lifting for you.

For some of our valued customers, luggage assistance isn’t an optional luxury, but a necessity. Our well-trained employees offer friendly help to our disabled customers and senior citizens. Parents of young kids often find luggage assistance to be essential. It’s tricky to hang onto a suitcase when you’re also carrying a tired toddler or trying to keep track of your other children.

Park Plus Airport Parking wants to make your departure and return arrival as stress-free and convenient as possible. Call (718) 529-1234 to inquire about our luggage assistance and parking availability at JFK in New York.

Carry-on Luggage 101

There’s a special art to packing a carry-on bag. You don’t want to overstuff your bag, but you also don’t want to leave out any essentials. Some must-have items might include basic toiletries, a neck pillow, earplugs for the flight, noise-cancelling earphones, and—of course—some reading material. If you bring your computer, tablet, or smartphone, don’t forget to bring chargers for all of them! For some more advice, check out this video.
