How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Big Sur
If you like the thought of spending more time at the airport bars and restaurants and less time wading through security on your way to Big Sur, follow these helpful tips:

  • Keep your boarding pass and passport in an easily accessible place. They’ll be the first things you’ll be asked to produce by airport security personnel.
  • Keep in mind that belts with metal buckles can set off the body scanner’s alarms. If you have one on, you may be instructed to step back and take it off before proceeding.
  • Everyday electronics such as laptops, tablets and phones are always sent through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure to have them within easy reach.
  • When it comes to flying with gels or liquids, each passenger is permitted a quart-sized clear resealable bag to keep containers no bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Construction boots and other heavy shoes are typically X-rayed. It might be wise to wear lightweight sneakers instead.
  • The list of prohibited items is forever changing. Have a look at your airline’s official website to learn about what is not allowed on board their aircraft.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.


What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.


How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.
