    So to ensure that you’re experience at SFO is first-class and your vacation gets off to the best start, we’ve carefully selected eight travel hacks just for you – sit back and enjoy.

    • Reflect

    SFO might have some fantastic facilities but ultimately, it’s still an airport – a place of stress and queues. However, you can use facilities like the Berman Reflection Room to your advantage, it’s the perfect spot to relax and get into the right mindset for passing through the airport. You can find out more about the facilities at SFO on the airport website.

    • Check-in online

    By checking-in online you’ll have one less queue to deal with at the airport and have more time to enjoy the shops, restaurants and art exhibits, waiting at other side of security.

    • Keep rolling

    Here’s two hacks for the price of one – rolling your clothes gives you more luggage space and helps stop your things from getting wrinkled and creased.

    • Locate your gate

    You haven’t experienced true fear until you’re rushing around an enormous airport, trying to find your gate. So rather than wait until your gate opens, you should locate your gate as early as possible. This way, you’ll know exactly where to go in case you lose track of time, whilst enjoying those fab airport shops.

    • Culture Trip

    The Culture Trip app is well worth downloading for your travels. It automatically detects where you are and suggests things to do (based on your interests), so there’ll be no time wasted sat at your hotel, trying to come up with ideas.

    • Chill your batteries

    If you’re taking lots of battery powered devices with you, get those batteries in the fridge. The cold slows the energy discharge, so they last longer – it works best with rechargeable batteries.

    • Sanitize

    Hand sanitizer or antibacterial wipes are a must when you’re travelling. Not because you’re a germaphobe, but because of those unfamiliar foreign germs lurking about. So it’s worth being a bit of a clean freak whilst traveling. Also remember that things like airplane table trays are rarely cleaned between flights – so clean yours before using it.

    • Pre-book parking

    Airport parking can be pricey if you pay on the day. But since public transport is so unreliable, driving to the airport is your safest and best option. And if you pre-book SFO Airport parking on you’ll find fab early-bird deals that’ll save you a load of dollars.

    Use these hacks on your next trip from San Francisco and you’ll enjoy an enjoyable efficient travel experience.
