Are you thinking about making a little escape at the end of the year? Or in a plan a little different from the traditional one? Finish this 2017 eating the 12 typical grapes but change the scenery and do it in a magical place. Many times it is not about going too far to find a funny and different plan. Without leaving Spain we have spectacular destinations to welcome the new year. Unlike Christmas, which is traditionally spent in family and at home, more and more people choose to travel during New Year’s Eve. This festivity invites you to get out of the routine of the Christmas holidays and get to know new cultures in a unique environment like Christmas and in a party at the top where each city and each town gives the best of itself. Before starting your trip it is advisable to take into account a series of recommendations to travel on these busy dates and start the new year in the best possible way. Can you come with us?
Choose unpopular options
Although by this time the airports usually operate normally, there is usually a large influx of passengers. There are many destinations that have secondary airports close to the main one. If you choose this option you can save time and money on your trip
If possible take direct flights. The weekends before Christmas and New Year’s Eve are the most sought after for the whole year so there may be unforeseen events that alter your itinerary. A connection, although it may be cheaper, can increase your stress because the chances of something going wrong increase.
Check your documentation
To travel through most of the countries of Europe you will only need to bring your ID, but for others you probably need a passport, visa and / or authorizations. Find out what documentation you need to access the country you are traveling to and do not forget to check the expiration dates
Check your luggage
Many times we arrive at the airport and we realize that we exceed the luggage weight limit and we have to pay inflated prices for it. You can avoid it if you weigh your suitcase before leaving home and remove any unnecessary items. Remember, also, that each airline has different weight limits. Calculate the days you will be traveling and depending on it, prepare the amount of clothes you must wear.
Arrives to the airport on time
They are busy dates and missing the flight will make us start the new year on the wrong foot. To avoid possible inconveniences, introduce yourself at the airport well in advance. In the event that you invoice you must present yourself at the check-in counters with sufficient time. Take into account waiting times at the counter, security controls, distances to the boarding gate, etc. You must arrive at the boarding gate at least 30 minutes before the departure of the flight. As a general rule, we recommend that for domestic flights the presentation at the check-in counter be one and a half hours before the departure of the flight; and for international flights, at least two hours before the departure of the flight.
One of the most frequent questions at the beginning of a trip is usually “How do I go to the airport?”. With Aerobús you can go from the city center to terminals 1 and 2 of Barcelona quickly and comfortably. There is an Aerobus every five minutes that will take you to your destination in little more than half an hour! You only need to get your Aerobus tickets. Follow these tips and enjoy the last trip of the year without worries! Happy 2018!
