Traveller reveals a 'genius' tip for getting through the airport with less faff

Tiktok user Ellen Siegel has shared a "genius" tip to help the passport holder divvy up the documents quickly and easily.

In a video, Ellen, who goes by @anywherepluseverywhere, said: "Here's the easiest travel hack I wish I would have known sooner.

"If you're the one responsible for passports on a trip, you know how annoying it is to try to find the right passport at the right time.

"Before our last trip, we added stickers on the back. We picked ones that were easily relatable."

A travel expert has shared a tip on how to get through airport security as quickly as possible without forking out for a premium ticket.

Nora Dunn revealed that it's all about picking the right queue.

She wrote on Quora: "Look at the people in line and choose the line with the most business travellers – these people have airport security down to a fine art.
