  • ✈️ Check the expiration on your travel docs & memberships

    Since many of us haven't traveled much in the past 18 months, many of our passports and memberships like PreCheck and Clear have expired. While getting a renewed passport may be tricky with 6 months of travel, TSA's renewal process is fairly easy: https://link.joinarrange.com/planningagetaway_precheckrenewal

  • ✈️ Book car or hotel reservations

    Think about who you are traveling with and what you'll need when you get there. A vacation rental can provide more space and the use of a full kitchen, but often lacks the amenities and reliability of a hotel. Use Google Hotel Finder to search for both types of lodging in your travel destination, but pro-tip, booking with the hotel directly will often get you the best deal and perks. If you need to book a car rental or hotel, we like Google Travel. https://link.joinarrange.com/googletravel

  • ✈️ Schedule necessary COVID tests

    COVID policies are changing rapidly and countries and destinations that may not have had any requirements when you booked could now mandate proof of vaccination or specific COVID tests. The CDC has a good overview of different travel restrictions, but ultimately it's best to check with your airline before travel. Some airports offer COVID testing for travelers before takeoff. This is convenient but fills up fast, make a reservation to reserve your date and time. https://link.joinarrange.com/CDCcovidtravelguidelines

  • ✈️ Check the weather & grab a mask or cleaning supplies

    Double check if you'll need to throw a coat or an umbrella and throw a back-up mask in your suitcase in case you misplace yours and want to wear one on the plane. While most airlines provide complimentary sanitary wipes, it doesn't hurt to bring a few without for added piece of mind.
