Summer is so close, you can feel it in the air. Honestly, I am one of those that cannot wait for Summer break to arrive to be able to unwind and kick back in a tropical island somewhere in the Caribbean; hey! or for that matter, anywhere in the planet. 🙂 Every year, our family and I, try to go on a new travel adventure to many of our favorite destinations, however, this year we are stretching our wings and planning smaller trips in & out the United States.
This means that our Summer break will not only involve many exciting destinations, but also many hours of waiting to be clear by TSA. If you are a season traveler, you already know that this process is slow and tedious and for us parents of younger children, the process is even worst. Just imagine, all you want to do is get through airport security as fast as you can, so that your little ones aren’t stressed out & a tantrum meltdown occurs, so you can sit down on your assigned plane sit and entertained them while you arrive at your destination. Yes, not fun at all.
Finding a Better Way to Travel: Skipping The Airport Line!
This is why, I was happy to be able to partner with CLEAR to provide you & I with a speedier way to get through the TSA process. CLEAR provides its members with the fastest and most predictable path through airport security. With little-to-no wait time, the entire security process will take less than 5 minutes on average. This combination of speed and reliability can provide your family & mine with the chance to have a relaxed meal at home before taking off. Isn’t that perfect? I undoubtedly think so!
What is CLEAR, How can it help you, & How to enroll?
CLEAR is a membership-based service that allows travelers to get through airport security faster. A CLEAR membership costs $179 annually, or about $15 a month. You can add a spouse to your account for $50 and kids under 18 are free if they are traveling with a CLEAR member.
Note. you must present either an US Passport or US issued Permanent Resident/Alien Registration Card PLUS an approved secondary ID (State Issued ID, Drivers License, Military ID, or Foreign Passport) when registering. All IDs must be valid, unamended, and unexpired. You must be at least 18 years old. It is that easy!
Where is CLEAR Available?
CLEAR is now open in 11 major airports with more opening very soon. Our current airports with CLEAR lanes are San Francisco (SFO), San Jose (SJC), Las Vegas (LAS), Denver (DEN), Houston (IAH & HOU), San Antonio (SAT), Dallas (DFW), Orlando (MCO), Baltimore (BWI), Westchester (HPN), and Miami (MIA) coming soon.
For sporting fans out there, CLEAR is now also expanding into select Major League Baseball parks around the country. Starting at AT&T Park in San Francisco, CLEAR members and their families can now get into the game faster (with an expedited security screening process) with just a tap of their finger. Great, right? So, what are you waiting for?
