Standing in long security lines is no fun and can slow you down.   With the TSA Pre-Check, you will have expedited screening that allows you to hustle through the airport without removing your shoes, laptops, liquids, belts, or light jackets.  For a nominal fee and a little advance effort, this could be you. 

There are basically three ways to get the TSA Pre-Check.  The first is to apply for a KTN or Known Traveler Number.  This is the fingerprint application process that ensures you will have speedy entry with participating airlines at eligible airports. It does include a quick background check as part of the process. The second way is through the Global Entry program.  This program includes the TSA Pre-Check as part of their expedited service.  The third way is to receive it randomly.  This designation is usually offered to persons partcipating in frequent flyer programs with participating airlines.  The logo for pre-check is printed on your boarding pass in the upper left corner. 

There are over three million members already participating in this program. Imagine the convenience of skipping the long lines and walking through the TSA Pre-Check line.  This program is now available at over 180 airports and with 18 airlines. Participating carriers are:

  • Aeromexico
  • Air Canada
  • Alaska Airlines
  • Allegiant Air
  • American Airlines
  • Cape Air
  • Delta Airlines
  •  Etihad Airways
  • Hawaiian Airlines
  • JetBlue Airways
  • Lufthansa
  • OneJet
  • Seaborne Airlines
  • Southwest Airlines
  • Sun Country Airlines
  • United Airlines
  • Virgin America
  • WestJet 

As a member of AAA, you have access to hundreds of discounts including great deals on premium luggage.  Who doesn't want new gear for cruising through the airport to your next destination? With a quick visit to your local AAA Travel Branch Location you can check out the plethora of luggage options.  

While you are there, take advantage of the ease and convenience of AAA Travel money products.  Stop in to discuss your best options with your AAA Travel Expert.  Depending on where you are going, how long you are traveling, and what you are planning to do could make a difference in what your trusted AAA agent suggests.  AAA offers American Express Travelers Cheques, Visa Travel Money Card, Foreign Currency Banknotes, AAA Members Reward Visa Card, and TipPaks.
