6 Los Angeles Airport Hacks Every Traveler Needs to Know

Traveling to Los Angeles Airport any time soon? Spare yourself from Lax parking headaches upon arrival. Keep on reading and learn from the tips we’ll share to get rid of common nightmares that inexperienced travelers commonly make.

1. Book a Parking Spot

Booking an LAX parking spot saves time and money. You can bring your car to the airport, which also means that you won’t need to go through the hassle of booking a cab to go home when you get back from your travel.

These days, booking an airport parking spot is easy. Check out ParkON.com to secure a guaranteed spot when you arrive.

While doing additional research for parking at LAX I stumbled upon a new website that I enjoyed called parkingaccess.com. Lots of parking options and very simple and easy to use.  Check it out.
While searching around, I also found information on LAX hotels and their Park and Fly deals.  I just finished an article called Park Sleep and Fly Packages at LAX, that you may find interesting if you have to leave your car for a week or more and have an early morning flight.

2. Queue on Your Left
This is an airport hack that applies not only in Los Angeles but in other airports as well. When you need to fall in line for the immigration or security check, always choose to go on your left side. Most people are right-handed, so heading to the farthest left side is one of the best ways to spend lesser time in line at the airport.

3. Take the Transfer Bus
If you have a connecting flight, it is best to take the transfer bus from one terminal to another. The airport is huge, and it can take you up to 45 minutes to walk from one end to the other. To save time and do something more productive than walk, look for the nearest bus where you can hop to get to your terminal in a jiffy.

4. Eat a Burger and Enjoy the View
Hungry? Grab a burger! And no, we are not just talking about any burger! We are talking about the ones you can buy at In-N-Out. This is especially true if you are just at the airport for a layover. This burger store is an institution in California, so make sure to try it. As a bonus, they have amazing views at the restaurant, which aviation geeks are sure to love.

5. Order Food Via Grab App
LAX can be a busy airport. Getting food and drinks can take a while. To avoid a frustrating experience, download the Grab app. It is a mobile ordering platform that works in 20+ airports. You choose from the available stores, place an order, settle the payment, and pick it up on the store. This way, you can order in advance to save time.

6. Head to the Private Suite
Want to fly in style? Book a spot at the Private Suite. There are thirteen suites and a shared area. There are also spa and salon services. Plus, your booking also comes with private security screening and chauffeur service to your plane. The price is ridiculously high, so consider this only if you have the budget.

Make the most out of your Los Angeles Airport experience with the tips above. Whether you are leaving or arriving, these tips will come handy to make your experience less stressful. From parking to food, you can book in advance for a hassle-free experience.
