It’s common knowledge flights with layovers tend to be cheaper than direct flights. However, most travelers are willing to pay more for their flight to avoid a layover. With the thought of spending a long time in an airport, do you blame them? Nonetheless, there are plenty of things to do to pass the time during a layover. So the next time you have a long layover, try one of these five ways to entertain yourself.
Check Out The Local Attractions
If you have a good amount of time to kill, look into leaving the airport to visit the local sites. Most major cities tend to have easy access to public transportation both to and from the airport.
If you don’t have any issues sleeping on a terminal bench, have at it. It’s all about your personal comfort level. Plus, many international airports even have designated sleeping sections.
Pack a deck of cards or a couple travel sized board games into your carry on. This is a great way for passing the time with companions.
Go On A Food Hunt
For frequent travelers, use layovers to try different restaurants and eateries. Find which food places are the best, so you know where you should and should not eat the next time you’re traveling through.
Read A Book
Whether you’re into romance novels or the latest self-help book, reading is a great way to pass the time. Plus, if you don’t want to stop, you can continue it on the plane.
