As the season of traveling begins, it is important to remember a few tips and tricks while away from home. When going to the airport make sure to keep in mind that others are getting away too. Air travel can be stressful, but there are many things we can do to make everyone’s experience is more enjoyable along the way.

The age-old dilemma of the arm rests and foot space can be avoidable when we keep others in mind. Put others first by giving the passenger with the middle seat the arm rests. If you are traveling with young passengers, prevent them from kicking the seats or using technology without earbuds of some sorts.

Today, we must think about how technology can affect those around us. As we take off for Spring Break, making sure that our technology is not hindering others relaxation is just one step we can take to ensure no complications.

This year at Etiquette Saint Louis, we are spreading kindness. When traveling, we can do this by thinking of how we would like others to show us the same consideration.
