Travel Tips - Checking-in

This guide covers the multiple ways you can check in at airports nowadays.  It provides some excellent ways to save a little bit of time, especially if your only travelling on a short domestic flight.  Take a look below at the best ways to speed up your checking-in.

Online check-in

Online check-in allows you to complete the process yourself on the tour operators website, if you have an electronic ticket . Typically, this can be done between 24 hours and 90 minutes before the flight is due to depart.

When you check-in online you'll need to verify all your flight details, choose a seat if you have not already selected one and choose your in flight meal if you've paid for one.

Some airlines will then allow you to print out your boarding pass using your own printer; others will require you to pick up your boarding pass from a self-service kiosk at the airport. If you have bags to check-in there is usually a bag drop-off point in the airport. Bags will need to be dropped off here at least an hour before departure.

Check-in desk

Still the most widely used way to check in, and still the mainstay if your travelling internationally.  The check in staff nowadays are very reliable and very fast, with most check-in desks opening before the flight is even released on the boards.  These checking-in desks get through the seats quite fast so if your a couple or family make sure you all check -in together and asks for seats together.If you have any special requests, then the human element of the checking-in desks cannot be ignored and is the best way to go, although still the slowest method available to the modern traveller.

Self-service kiosks

These are available in the larger more international airports, and some airline have started to adopt this approach to save on staffing costs.  You will need your e-ticket which usually has a magnetic strip which you scan at the kiosks.  The kiosks open usually 24 hours to 90 minutes before the flight is set to depart.  The queues to use this service are much shorter and ideal for those on a quick domestic flight or no luggage.  There is usually 1 member of staff available to help but its usually expected you know what your doing when using the self service kiosks.
