Looking out my office window this morning, I see a bit lighter traffic than usual coming in from the Lincoln Tunnel. But I see a bit heavier than normal going out. That means lots of cars going to Jersey. And as we all know, the only reason to go to Jersey from Manhattan is a Giants game, BJ’s Wholesale Club, a mall, or Newark Airport. Well, it could be BJ’s, it’s not football season, and the malls haven’t opened yet. So I’m betting we’re hitting the 4th travel week. From a 250,000 mile per year traveler, here’s a few tips on how to make travel easier this week, and heck, every time. Spend a little bit of money and a little bit of time, and you’ll save tons of both today and forever. Trust me on this. It’s what I do. 1) Sign up for CLEAR. Full disclosure, I consult for them. But one of the benefits of consulting for them is that I get to give you discounts. What’s CLEAR? It’s biometric-fueled security, proving that you are who you are, every time. It gets you through security in seconds, not minutes, and works with any airline in any airport that has CLEAR set up. (More added each month.) Currently at MCO, SFO, DEN, and DFW, once enrolled, you save upwards of 45 minutes each time you go through security. I’m not joking – It’s the greatest thing in the world. DISCOUNT: Use the code CGPJULY4PS at when you sign up for three free months. Seriously. No catch. 2) Don’t check luggage. I’m serious. You can fit seven days in a carry-on. I’m not joking. It’s so easy. I’m on the board of the ScotteVest, clothing that allows me to keep whatever I want in it. I can do three days with just a vest, and the stuff I put in the vest. I did a no-baggage-challenge – Went to Asia for four days with nothing but my jacket and a pair of pants: Check out the video of how I did it:
