If you don’t have TSA Pre✓, I strongly recommend signing up. It’s our #1 way to save time on your next trip, and it’s only $85 and good for 5 years. Even if you only use it 1-2 times a year, it’s definitely worth it. In December, 97 percent of TSA Pre✓ passengers got through an expedited screening lane in less than 5 minutes. That alone should sell you on it.
