Going to the airport? Do you dread the lines at he airport?  Tea recheck is the answer for you! I just love it!!!  For a non-refundable $85 fee (payable by money order, credit card, or a certified check) you can enroll in TSA PreCheck for five years. 


TSA PreCheck is the expedited screening program at airports that allows low-risk passengers to use a fast-tracked security line. In order to apply, you must be a U.S. citizen, a U.S. national, or a lawful permanent resident. The application process includes an in-person interview and background check.


What I love is that you avoid the long lines which have become even longer now with all the terror threats.  You can shoot  through a designated line at airport security—without removing your shoes or belt, or taking your laptop and liquids out of your bag. Since I always wear strappy heels and jewelry, this is a huge plus. Yes! I dress to travel and not for comfort!


In May 2016, a handful of new airlines joined the program. Now, passengers traveling with Aeromexico, Cape Air, and Etihad can take advantage of TSA PreCheck. By now,  domestic budget carriers Frontier Airlines and Spirit Airlines are expected to participate as well. For the record, Sprit Airline is not to be traveled unless you like being nickeled and dimed for EVERYTHING!

That means if you’re taking a domestic or international flight with any of the TSA PreCheck-compliant airlines (there are currently 16) at an equipped airport (160 and counting), you can say farewell to enduring endless security lines.

Have other questions? This comprehensive overview tells you everything you need to know about TSA PreCheck and Global Entry. Going to the airport should be stress  free and TSA precheck takes the hassle out of traveling.

$85 is not a lot for three years of stress free travel. Have kids?? Get everyone a TSA precheck!

Travel safe!
