The question is, why are you still traveling without TSA?

Let’s start with what is TSA pre-check. For all of you who don’t know, TSA pre-check is the transportation security administration that checks your documentation at check-in right before passing the checkpoint at the airport and pre-check is this is done waaaaay before your travel date.

When you are cleared by TSA pre-check, it means you no longer need to take your shoes off or pass through screening to be cleared to board. You have been screened and Homeland Security has cleared you so that you can always travel without having to do so.

This is how you benefit:

  • No more long lines ANYMORE! You can pass check-point faster because there are fewer people waiting to board in the TSA line. (unless you’re in Miami… the lines are equally as bad!)
  • You can get there a little later for check-in, I know I do! Most of the time for international flights you must be there 3-hours earlier. Using TSA pre-check you can get away with being there at least 1 1/2 before your flight!
  • You don’t need to take out your shoes!!! This is probably my favorite part because I have hated doing this over the years. I love that I don’t have to do this anymore.
  • If you’re traveling with children under the age of 12, they can also do fast-check with you without having to make the line or have their own TSA screening cleared.
  • If you’re traveling with a furry friend, pup can also go through TSA pre-check with you, I’ve written a whole article about traveling with your puppy.

In a nutshell, start traveling with TSA pre-check. It’s so beneficial. The process to be cleared doesn’t take more than a month (which I think should take longer!), but if you’re interested, hurry and visit this website to start your process.

Also, here’s a long list of things you can/cannot bring with TSA. Hope it helps!
