Quick video tip: The Most Important Thing To Do When Booking A Flight

By: Chelsea Brinkley + Save to a List

This is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING to make sure you do when booking your flight and if you don’t get it correct, will cost ya a good chunk of moolah to fix. That’s if you notice it before getting to security at the airport.

This is especially important if you go by a name that’s not your legal name on your ID → Bill, Andy, Angie, Beth, Jeff, Mike, Josh (any name that’s a shortened form of your legal name), I’m looking at you!
