Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Stephanie R., who says:
“My travel tip is to be resourceful in the event of a flight delay or cancellation—i.e. instead of standing in a long line, I often have success going to another gate further down the terminal where the agent is not busy and explaining what is happening and what I need. Nine times out of 10 they will help, but of course this requires you to ask nicely and be kind to the agent (which you should do anyway—they are people too!).”
This is in line with my own advice. In a situation like this, you should also try getting on the phone with the airline as soon as you can. Thanks, Stephanie!
