Anyone who is flying through the San Diego international Airport, should be aware that there is a new service offered called the TSA PreCheck. This service allows travelers to proceed through airport security without the usual hassles that the average traveler faces. For instance, those who participate in TSA PreCheck won’t have to remove their laptop, liquids, belt, coat or shoes in order to make it to their gate.
Why Consider TSA PreCheck?
If you’re looking for expedited travel during an upcoming trip to San Diego, doing things like booking a hotel near the San Diego airport, arranging for transportation ahead of time, and looking into city-specific programs like PreCheck can all make your arrival and departure into America’s Finest City go as smoothly as possible.
How Do I Sign Up?
Some frequent fliers will have access to the TSA PreCheck for free if their airlines cover the cost of the service in return for their business. United and Delta frequent fliers have reported free access to TSA PreCheck. American Express Platinum Card holders receive a $100 credit towards TSA PreCheck so the service comes at essentially no cost for them as well.
For those who don’t qualify for free access, the PreCheck will cost $100. Those interested must sign up with Global Entry, the U.S. Customs’ partner program. Once thoroughly vetted and screened, you will receive a card which you can show to your airport carrier to receive the PreCheck screening badge on your boarding pass.
TSA also offers the service for $85 but international travelers will want to pay the extra $15 to avoid the enormous lines that they commonly encounter when re-entering the United States. They’ll also have access to convenient automated kiosks as well.
Only 60 other airports in the United States offer the TSA PreCheck service so anyone flying through San Diego should take advantage of this unique opportunity to save hours of unnecessary time waiting in line at airport security during busy holiday travel months.
