Save Hours at the Airport with TSA PreCheck

Since 9/11, and TSA expanding their security, it’s caused a number of changes in how a traveler has to prepare and plan to travel when flying.

If you have to check a bag, print or change a boarding pass, and you’re not a preferred a-lister with the particular airline, it’s going to take you anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to get through the line only to have to go through security.
