We don’t know about you, but when we travel, we love feeling like VIPs. We don’t worry about long lines or whether or not our socks match. We keep our laptops in our bags and our belts on and buckled. This summer, we’re traveling with ease. Why? Because we’re enrolled in TSA PreCheck.
With travel volume ticking back up as summer vacation season approaches, we want to remind everyone of TSA’s greatest resource and benefit for travelers. You’ll have a smooth and stress-free travel experience, as enrolled TSA PreCheck members get the most convenient experience with the least amount of physical contact in screening: no need for screening bins, your shoes and belts stay on, and laptops and travel-sized liquids remain in your carry-on bag.
Here’s a hot tip: There’s still time to enroll or renew in TSA PreCheck before your summer travel begins. Enrolling is easy. Just be sure to start from a .GOV site, like www.tsa.gov/precheck, to know it’s legit. The process begins with a five-minute online application, at the end of which you’ll be prompted to book a 10-minute in-person appointment at one of 400+ enrollment centers in the U.S., with over 35 of those located at major airports nationwide. That’s all it takes… 15 minutes for five years of traveling like the very important people you are!
We know this may sound like one of those cheesy infomercials you hear on TV at 3 a.m., but that’s not all! Traveling with little ones in tow this summer season? TSA PreCheck is a great option for families as children under 12 can join parents or guardians in our dedicated screening lanes for the low, low price of free!
Speaking of free, we all love things that are free or come at a discount. Many credit cards and loyalty programs reimburse enrollment and renewal fees with a participating list of providers available here.
If you’re planning summer travel, enroll in TSA PreCheck now so you’re sure to be approved in time to enjoy benefits for your next trip. While most travelers are approved within 3-5 days, some applications can take up to 30 days to approve, so enroll or renew now to make sure you’re all set for your getaway this season!
Take it from us, there’s no better way to travel, especially during busy travel season, than traveling as a TSA PreCheck member!
