How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Nanaimo

These clever tips and hints about airport security checks will save you plenty of time on your way to Nanaimo:

  • Make sure you know the location of your boarding pass and passport. You don't want to hold up the queue when you're asked to hand them over.
  • Bear in mind that metal belt buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you have one on, you may be asked to place it in a tray before continuing.
  • Make sure your laptop and electronic devices are easily accessible. These items need to be put through the X-ray machine separately.
  • Lip balm, toothpaste and other toiletry items in liquid, gel or cream form need to be stored in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They also need to fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock bag.
  • Consider the type of footwear you want to fly in. Slippers are great because they're a piece of cake to slip out of when you're at the security checkpoint. Try wearing some on your next flight!
  • The list of non-permissible items is forever changing. Check with your airline's official website to find out what is not allowed on board their flights.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Wednesdays tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2020. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Friday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Saturday. Our data shows, the start of the weekend has the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals on a weekend.


What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, but earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Tuesday are the cheapest of the week. Since weekend flights tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise which is why on average. Airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2020 were most expensive for Saturday departures.


How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca 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 2020 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2 weeks to 3 months prior to their travel dates.


How can I save money on airline tickets?

We'll let you in on a secret...You can save big on flights if you mix and match your airlines and fare types. In fact, travellers who booked flights on Travelocity.ca in 2020 saved close to 60% when their return flights consisted of two different airlines or fare types.
