8 Secrets Airport Staff Don't Want You to Know

Only the people working at airports know how things really go down there, and they have many secrets they don’t want you to know. Did you know, for example, that most airports have specific experts called profilers? Their job is to notice the non-verbal signs of anxiety, such as people licking their lips, itching, or looking around a lot.

Also, in a lot of big airports, there are special cameras that can detect a certain level of aggression. These cameras transmit the information to a computer and, in cases of dangerous levels of aggression, the suspect will be stopped by airport security for a detailed inspection. Interested? Then check out these surprising truthful facts from the airport world every traveler will like to know.

They have dogs that check your bags 3:36
Your food is cooked around the clock 4:32

SUMMARY:
- Profilers work in both the main halls and in passport control. The typical question they ask is, “What's the purpose of your visit?” They then check the person's reaction to this enquiry. No matter how reserved a passenger is, if they have something to hide, TSA officers will find out thanks to the tiniest cues in people's behavior.
- Experts can detect an individual’s specific reactions by checking their heart rate, respiration, and body temperature. Perhaps one day we’ll all go through security checks without even realizing it!
- Airport staff don’t know once it leaves their territory, and they probably don’t really care, sorry. Baggage is sorted automatically: scanners scan the barcode and sort the baggage according to its destination. So if your luggage doesn't move fast enough, it can be late for your connecting flight. Or, the exact opposite, your bag gets to your destination before you do because you’re stuck at passport control.
- Before your luggage even gets on the plane, it goes through five security levels, and one of them (besides scanning the contents) includes being checked by a special dog that can sniff out dangerous chemicals.
- Unlike police dogs, the ones working at airports aren't trained to frighten or intimidate people. The most popular sniffer breeds are Golden Retrievers, Labs, and German Shorthaired Pointers.
- Most airports are equipped with giant kitchens where the food for passengers is prepared. These kitchens usually cook food for different airlines at once. And since that oh-so delightful airplane food must be cooked about 6-10 hours in advance, these kitchens have to work 24/7!
- Dispatchers not only control the planes in the sky (like you usually see in movies), they also control their movement on the ground as well as the lighting on the runways. That's why there are 3 types of air traffic controllers: en-route, terminal, and tower.
- If the airport staff finds out that your visa has expired or you just don’t have one when you enter their country, you’ll be deported by the same airline that brought you there. Not to mention, they have to foot the bill for the ticket as well, which means you can return home for free!
- Airport staff sometimes ask passengers to rub their hands on a piece of cloth before putting it into a special machine. It might seem kind of scary, but it’s actually harmless. You’re simply being checked by a machine called an atomizer.

10 Secrets Hotel Staff Are Hiding From You

Hotel managers all around the world keep quiet about a lot of things. Here are some brilliant tips that will help you save money and have the best vacation ever. For instance, do you know how to cancel the reservation at the last moment without a fine? This one is the best trick ever – everyone should learn it! Watch our video to figure out all of the tricks.

TIMESTAMPS
Book a room 1 or 2 days before check-in 1:03
If you don’t like your room, you can change it for free 1:49
Choose a hotel with its ratings, not by the number of stars 2:29
You can take cosmetic products with you 3:04
Concierges with the golden keys pin can answer any question 3:41
Book discounted rooms directly with the hotel 4:16
Photos of a hotel can differ from reality 4:50
Check the minibar 5:32
Read the contract before leaving your car on-site 6:07
How to cancel a reservation and not pay a fine for it 6:33

SUMMARY
- Sometimes, the price might be $100 when you check it 20 days before arrival, and two days before arrival it’s only 50 bucks.
That happens because hotel managers reduce the price in the last minute to fill all the rooms.
- If you don’t like the room for subjective reasons (located on the upper or lower floor), you can also ask a change of room. In this case, you should ask politely, don’t demand! If there are vacant rooms, the hotel staff will show them to you.
- Sometimes, the number of starts, actually, means nothing. A 3-star hotel can be much better and even cozier than a 5-star hotel, so read the reviews before you book a room.
- Do you like those tiny bottles of shampoo and shower gel in a hotel bathroom? Then take them with you! Let’s admit – almost everyone loves them as they are handy while traveling. Don’t think you are doing something wrong.
- Concierges with such pins are members of a particular public organization called Les Clefs d’Or. Don’t be shy to ask them for whatever you need – they will gladly help you.
- Every hotel wants to sell as many rooms per day as possible. Therefore, they pay a fee to different sites and offer them certain rooms, and you don’t get the best rooms at a discount.
- You expect to get some luxurious room with soft light, but when you arrive, you see a tiny room with a half-ruined bedside table and the smallest bed you’ve ever seen. To avoid this annoying situation, search for the hotel photos on the Internet.
- Always check a minibar in your room after check-in. A minibar is a magic chest containing different delicacies at crazy prices. To avoid wasting money for someone else’s pleasures, make sure all the bottles are closed.
- The agreement usually states that the hotel is not responsible for cars parked on-site. You need to know about it in case any accident happens with your car in the hotel’s parking lot.
- Instead of canceling the reservation immediately, ask to move it a week ahead! Then call your hotel the next day and cancel it.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Flight Attendants

How to Get the Most out of Your Flight. Maybe you love to travel by plane, or maybe just the idea makes you clench your teeth in terror, but we bet you didn’t know all of this. It’s time to ask the experts who fly all the time: flight attendants to reveal their secrets and tips on how to make your flight more comfortable and safe.
Many of us consider ourselves experts at navigating departures, flights, and takeoffs almost as naturally as we get out of bed in the morning or take a walk around the block. But however experienced you are, learning some of these insights about airplanes can make your flights more pleasant. It might also make the experience better for the pilot and crew of flight attendants who have to do this all day, every day.

TIMESTAMPS
All-male crews are a thing of the past. 1:21
Not waiters, but captain’s assistants! 2:36
The crew is just as frustrated as you are. 3:25
Don’t sleep during takeoff or landing. 4:05
Sleeping when cruising is a great idea. 5:13
Chicken or fish? 5:47
Follow instructions — or else! 6:42
Sit toward the back. 7:45
Rely on your flight attendants. 8:49
Flying tips straight from the pros! 9:18

Music:


SUMMARY
-Before 1930, the crews of airplanes were 100% male, including the pilot, ground crew, and all of the flight attendants. Over a hundred years, the gender roles reversed, and many now see this as a primarily female profession.
-In reality, a flight attendant’s job is to assist the captain by managing the cabin during a flight.
-Airline crews are typically paid by the hour, but only the hours spent in actual flight are paid. A flight doesn’t actually start until the door is closed.
-Experienced flight attendants recommend avoiding falling asleep on take-off, descent, and landing. Not only will you not be attentive during these dangerous parts of the flight, but it can impinge on your comfort.
-Attendants encourage passengers to sleep on night flights, deliberately delaying food service to let people fall asleep.
-Some flight attendants use a trick to get more people to choose the fish: they say that the fish is a “special” from the “chef,” reserved exclusively for this flight.
-Some airlines supply their flight attendants with tasers to deal with passengers who don’t comply. Safety is very important on planes, and they’ve got to be able to control a situation.
-Especially if you’re a nervous flier, you’ll be pleased to know that the back seats tend to be far safer, statistically speaking.
-Flight attendants are trained in first aid and CPR. They can treat small wounds, assess symptoms of common traveler illnesses, and even deliver babies in-flight.
-Never take your shoes off on a plane. Lots of passengers use fold-down tables for all sorts of things: as writing surfaces, pillows (with drool-catching action!), or places to change a baby. Use antibacterial disinfectant, and clean the tray for your own safety. Flight attendants have very little free time during a flight. If you’re thirsty, rather than pressing the call button, consider going up to them to ask for a glass of water.

13 Secret Tricks Every Police Officer Uses

Police officers are the order of any country. In movies, they chase the worst criminals, conduct interrogations, and, of course, they save people. But is this all this true? And how do these things really happen?

Btw, have you ever engaged in a pleasant conversation with a police officer who stopped you on the road? If you have, then you’ve probably given them a lot of useful info without even realizing it. The police have much more up their sleeves than you might think, and a superhero arsenal is just one of many of those things! So here are the most interesting facts about the dangerous work that policemen do. Most people probably have no idea about these crazy facts.

TIMESTAMPS:
You’re guilty until proven otherwise 0:27
Patting your trunk isn’t just a random gesture 1:11
Sirens have different modes for different situations 2:02
Cops and donuts aren’t like PB&J 3:12
They can and will lie to you to get your confession 3:53
Act first, talk later 4:37
The thin blue line 5:31
They care for each other 6:16
A friendly chat is not what it seems 7:03
They wear superhero belts 7:57
Most of what they do is paperwork 8:30
They know everything and more about you 9:06
They’re cynical for a reason 9:51

#police #factsyouneverknew #brightside

SUMMARY:
- When you’re stopped by a police officer who’s accusing you of something, you’d better recall your alibi, and fast.
- Police officers touch the trunk or tail light of your car when they pull you over. This way, the officer is leaving their fingerprints on your car. They would serve as evidence if something happened to the officer during your conversation.
- Before an intersection or among tall buildings, the “yelp” mode, which has a faster beat, is used because it bounces off the surrounding walls better. The “hi-lo” mode can be used in different situations, but it’s generally reserved for dense traffic.
- The “cops love donuts” stereotype has become so omnipresent that many police officers even stay away from donut shops at all costs not to feed the myth.
- They have a legal right to do it by lying in your face. The only thing they’re not allowed to do is making your confession involuntary.
- In the US, if 911 receives a call that potentially requires immediate action, they will send out a SWAT team that will first break down the door and put everyone on the floor, and only then ask questions.
- The thin blue line is a sign to all the members of the police out there that here’s a supporter. The police actually have a sort of brotherhood.
- As soon as one of them gets into trouble, others will try to get them out of there.
- They’ll have everything from handcuffs and a radio to a whole arsenal needed to take down criminals on the run.
- In fact, like almost everyone else, they have to do lots of boring things. Filing documents, filling in some blanks, compiling reports, and so on.
- If you have a friend in the police, you’d be surprised at how much they already know about you — even if you didn’t tell them anything.
- It’s a common belief that most police officers are quite cynical. Well, in truth, the same can be said about any professional working with people on a daily basis.

Flights Can Put in Economy With a First-Class Ticket, Here's Why

Can you be 'downgraded' on a flight? You arrive at the airport, anticipating a pleasant flight - after all, you've paid more for that extra legroom! Or a comfy window seat. Or a business class. That's when you find out you've been.. downgraded! How come? And if you can get downgraded, is the opposite possible too? Then, what other secrets do airlines hide?

Experts claim downgrades do happen - and rather frequently at that! The reasons vary: the airplane can get unexpectedly swapped for a smaller one because of some technical issues. There have also been cases when people bought first-class tickets only to find out later there was no first class on the plane whatsoever! But the rules of downgrading and upgrading aren't the only secrets airlines, flight attendants, and airport staff don't want you to know. Interested? Then check out these surprising facts every traveler will like to know.

Don't Put Coffee In Your Luggage and 23 Other Tips

When you're getting ready for a flight, two main things you might be worried about is how to stuff all your travel essentials into your modest-sized suitcase and how to get through the security screening as fast as possible. Interestingly, both of these things depend on how carefully and thoughtfully you pack your carry-on and checked luggage.

Do you know, for example, that if you don't charge your laptop before the flight, it may be confiscated? Packing an electric brush in your carry-on may land you in trouble at the security check.

10 Things You Should Never Wear on a Plane

TIMESTAMPS:
Charge your laptop 0:25
Don't pack an electric brush in your carry-on 0:51
Avoid wrapping your things in aluminum foil 2:24
Don't put musical greeting cards in your carry-on 3:08
Don't put coffee in your luggage 4:03
Don't leave stickers on your suitcase after the flight 4:34
Use the bundle wrapping method 5:26
How to protect your suitcase from mud 6:14
How to get rid of the suitcase clothes smell 7:08

SUMMARY:
- Leaving your electric brush in your checked suitcase will make passing the security scanning easier for you.
- If you have a lot of clothes, it's better to use special compression storage bags.
- If you want to take a clutch or some other kind of a mini-bag, you may be asked to pack it inside your carry-on.
- Both your carry-on and checked luggage pass through an X-ray scanner. It can't see through the aluminum foil because this material effectively blocks X-rays.
- When you're traveling with a single carry-on bag, take advantage of sample-sizes! The most experienced travelers collect all the samples they get and take them on a trip.
- If you don't have special shoe bags for keeping your dirty footwear, pack your shoes in cheap plastic shower caps.
- Suitcases do tend to get lost from time to time. Imagine your chargers being gone along with your bag!
- Put some sheets of tissue paper between your folded clothes. Many travelers swear that by minimizing the pressure and friction, this simple action reduces wrinkles.
- While packing your bag, stuff your shoes with socks, ties, and other small objects.
- Compressing your bag by zipping it often helps to create more space inside.
- To prevent your chargers from getting tangled (ugh!), you can store them in sunglasses cases.
- If you're traveling with a backpack, make sure that its center of gravity is as stable as possible. Pack the heavy gear so that it's closer to your back and somewhere in the middle of the bag.
- Experts recommend to roll your clothes when you're traveling with a backpack and fold them if you bring along a suitcase.

33 Little-Known Airport Facts to Travel Easier

If you travel by plane quite a lot, dozens of questions can be accumulated in your brain. For example, what are the best shoes to wear at the airport security screening to not be asked to take them off? Or are those scanners you have to go through harmful to your health? Or how long the things seized during the pre-flight inspection can be stored at the airport for?

You’d definitely like to know how to cancel non-refundable tickets and get your money back or how to significantly reduce the costs for transfers, hotels, and food even if it’s your first trip and you don’t have any discount cards. So here's the list of advice you should heed before your next trip.

TIMESTAMPS:
Seized things 0:33
The radiation you get during the flight 1:17
How not to spill your coffee 1:55
What if they don't feed you 2:32
Buying liquids in Duty-Free 3:12
Pay in dollars or euros 3:35
Avoid carrying spray deodorants 4:01
Have a pair of extra underwear in your carry-on 4:40
What you can do if you need coins 5:13
Innocent things that may be prohibited 5:52
Where you can find unoccupied toilets 6:23
Put a couple of tennis balls in your carry-on 7:08
What if the airline's site just doesn't work 7:43
How to entertain yourself at the airport 8:16
Make sure your socks don't have holes in them 8:55
What if your first flight gets delayed 9:32
How to save some money 9:57

#airports #planes #brightside

SUMMARY:
- You shouldn't be wary of airport scanners - they don't harm your health.
- If you have some powder in your baggage, be it some baby formula, flour, or instant drinks, keep it in its original packaging.
- At some airports, you can buy drinking water right after you pass the security check.
- Check if the airport or airline sells 24-hour access to a VIP lounge zone. In most cases, you can have free snacks and drinks there.
- While in the baggage claim area, you might have to pay for Wi-Fi; but in the arrival zone, it's almost always free.
- If you’re in the middle of a bad cold, but you absolutely have to fly, take a painkiller before the plane takes off and lands.
- You can’t keep power banks in your checked baggage.
- When going on a trip, instead of taking the whole perfume bottle, take a tester.
- If you have a brand-new unopened bottle of nail polish in your carry-on, it's ok. But if you've already used it, put it in your checked luggage.
- . Seemingly innocent things like plants, seeds, and some types of food may be prohibited if you're flying to Australia, or other particular islands.
- You're more likely to find unoccupied toilets in the baggage claim area, near customs, next to big cafes, and in waiting lounges.
- While packing for a long flight, remember to put a couple of tennis balls in your carry-on. If you roll your feet on them during the flight, your legs and feet won't swell up.
- Statistically, the safest seats are in the tail of the aircraft.
- If you're traveling through several time zones, try to do more physical activity the day before.
- If there are lots of empty seats on a plane, and you have the airline's bonus card, you can ask the flight attendants to move you to business class.
- You can still pay for your onboard purchases with your bank card, even if there's no Internet on the plane. In this case, the money will be withdrawn as soon as you land.

12 Mistakes All of Us Keep Making Before Flight

For quite a few people, flying can be a stressful experience. Even folks who’ve been doing it for years will tell you that. Not only do you need to be a savvy passenger that organizes everything in advance, but you also need to be prepared for the unexpected. Some people even follow a strict schedule in order to be one step ahead.

However, this method isn’t always enough. There are certain things we tend to forget. For example, are you aware of the things you should never do before flying? For those of you who have no clue what this is about, here are some of the mistakes that you might not even know you’re making at the airport.

7 Air Travel Tips to Know Before Your Flight
10 Things You Should Never Wear on a Plane

TIMESTAMPS:
Putting your documents in a small bag 0:42
Not checking-in online 1:24
Paying for over-weight luggage 2:18
Not looking up the seat plan 3:13
Wrapping your suitcase 3:43
Going to the first security check-points 4:23
Keeping liquids in their carry-on
Relaxing after going through security 6:06
Trying unusual dishes 6:38
Forgetting about turbulence 7:34
Ditching the anti-bacterial wipes 8:34
Not thinking about jet lag 8:56

#airtravel #traveltips #brightside

SUMMARY:
- If you lose your backpack at the airport, you have a good chance of finding it because it’s large. A smaller bag will be more difficult to spot, and if an opportunistic thief spots it, it’ll be easy for them to hide.
- With the online check-in options, you somehow guarantee your arrival at the airport for your flight. So, the sooner you do it, the better.
- You can always weigh your luggage at home, or you can restrict yourself from packing some necessities that are already available at the airport.
- Right before your long-awaited journey, make sure you check some websites that show you the secret. For example, which seats have more leg room.
- It’s better to invest in a good quality lock for security, or try a reusable cover that can keep your luggage nice and clean.
- Many people automatically go to the first check-points that tend to be overcrowded. The main reason is that the last checkpoints don’t have a queue, and passengers assume that they’re closed.
- Next time you travel, make sure you double check the amount of liquids you’re taking, and place them in a transparent pack to speed-up the process.
- When trying a new cuisine or new food, you don’t know how your stomach will react to it, and doing that right before a flight is a huge no-no.
- The best time for turbulence sensitive passengers to fly is during the winter, in the morning or late at night. And if you’re wondering why turbulence has the luxury to pick it’s time to shine, let’s get into some sciency stuff.
- The airport is one of the most infectious places you can be in. So, having some anti-bacterial wipes and sanitizer to protect yourself is literally life-saving.
- 93% of flyers experience jet lag. So, the best way to avoid this is by adjusting your watch, and maybe the time on your phone, to the time of your destination.

What Happens to Luggage When Nobody Takes It

Sometimes it feels like a race. You make it to the airport of your destination, but your check-in baggage doesn't. So what if there’s a lonely suitcase spinning on the baggage carousel even after all the travelers have left the airport?

However sad it may sound, each unclaimed bag has a person it belongs to. And right now, this poor owner is most likely at another airport, complaining about their luggage getting lost on the way. And the abandoned bag you see on the carousel has either been diverted to the wrong plane, or lost altogether due to some confusion. So let's figure out what happens to it!

#airport #luggage #brightside

SUMMARY:
- When it becomes obvious that no one is going to claim a bag, the airline tries to find out who it belongs to. In most cases, all they need to do is to look at the bag tag.
- But let's say there’s no identifying information on the suitcase. In this case, the airline keeps the bag at the terminal where it arrived, and waits for about 5 days for the owner to claim it.
- Each air carrier has a central warehouse, and that's exactly where the lost suitcase goes. It stays there for around 2 more months.
- The bag and everything inside could be donated to charity.
- The airline company holds an auction. In this case, large companies (which are the main buyers at such auctions) buy tons of unclaimed baggage.
- Every minute of delay costs an airline company hundreds of dollars. That's why, before reaching the conveyer belt, your bag may be repeatedly thrown around for up to 60 ft.
- On top of that, baggage handlers usually pack suitcases as if playing a game of Tetris. They squeeze bags of different sizes and shapes together so that they form a solid wall of baggage.
- Airport staff tends to treat two-wheeled suitcases worse than four-wheeled ones.
- When talking about baggage, most people tend to forget about things which aren't actual bags, such as strollers, car seats, and the like.
- Only a few bags come with their own luggage tags; in most cases, people have to buy additional tags so that their luggage can be identified should it get lost.
- Airport staff has such limited time to get bags loaded and unloaded that they pay little to no attention to brands or how expensive a suitcase is.
- If you're in the habit of overpacking your suitcase, making it extremely heavy, keep in mind that heavier bags are usually placed at the very bottom when they're loaded on the plane.
- One of the most irritating things for a baggage handler is numerous luggage tags on a bag or suitcase.
- Children's luggage is by no means handled with more care than that of adults'.

Don't Use a Hotel Hair Dryer and 19 Other Secrets

If you often travel for pleasure or business, you spend a good deal of time at hotels. Hotel rooms are supposed to be the epitome of cleanliness! At least you hope so. But in fact, the objects you’d never think could be dirty are the biggest sources of germs.

Hotel staff are required to disinfect the obvious stuff in the bathroom like the toilet and sink, but more obscure items get cleaned less often. The hairdryer, the carpet, lamp switches and TV remotes are only some of the objects on the list. Let’s see what else you should try to avoid touching in a hotel room.

#nevertouchthis #hotelsecrets #brightside

SUMMARY:
-The moist environment that’s created after you take a shower plus the heat from the hairdryer equals a nasty breeding ground for all those bacteria to multiply.
-Shampooing services are expensive, so hotels save money by deep-cleaning the carpets less often.
-Staff may wipe the surface of the bedside table, but this is yet one more thing that’ll easily get overlooked.
-Even in four-star hotels the bathroom counters contain the most CFU, or colony-forming units, of bacteria.
-Hotel staff are trying to clean rooms quickly to get them ready for the next guest, so the TV remotes are maybe given a quick wipe-down.
-The cleaners don’t have dish soap on their carts, so the glasses usually just get a quick rinse with hot water.
-The bedspread is among the top 11 dirtiest things in your room.
-Since people throw them off the bed before going to sleep, decorative pillows are home to numerous bacteria.
-The sofa collects germs from people’s suitcases, shoes, and anything else guests might toss on it.
-Researchers found that in some 3-star hotels, the drapes only got a mere dusting just once a month.
-The steamy environment makes the bathroom ideal real estate for bacteria and mildew.
-Hotel staff aren’t making the phone in your room their first cleaning priority as people mostly use cell phones these days.
-If they aren’t cleaned regularly with vinegar as they should be, coffee makers can become disgusting very quickly.
-Swabs done off desks show a plethora of contagious respiratory viruses on that handy writing surface.
-Some hotels have been known to wipe down the bathroom counter and faucets with the same cloth they use to clean the toilets.
-The tap is connected to a municipal water source, especially if you’re in a big city. This kind of water can carry lead, E. coli, and chlorine.
-Before you drop a few ice cubes into your drink, remember the ice bucket hasn’t only been used to hold ice and is hardly ever cleaned.
-Researchers say that your room key is just as dirty and germy as money.
-Bed bugs carry over 40 disease-causing bacteria. They’re also tough to get rid of once you bring them back home from your hotel room.
-Even if you don’t have allergies, stale air is unhealthy because it piggy-backs irritants and bacteria into the body.

Music by Epidemic Sound

SUMMARY:
- The man asked for political asylum from Iran. For 4 years, he got nothing but rejections from different European countries. But in 1981, fortune finally smiled upon him.
- Nasseri was already an adult when his mother told him that he wasn’t her real son. It turned out that his birthmother was a Scottish nurse who’d had an affair with his father.
- When he arrived at Heathrow Airport, he didn't have his refugee papers with him! Nasseri claimed that they’d been stolen on a train when he was on his way from Belgium to Paris.
- Upon his arrival at Charles de Gaulle Airport, things really started getting weird. Since Nasseri didn't have his refugee papers, Parisian passport control authorities also wouldn’t let him leave the airport!
- At first, Nasseri thought that his airport stay wouldn't last longer than a few days, maybe weeks at the most. But months went by, then years, and the man was still living in Terminal 1.
- He mostly stayed on his personal red bench on the restaurant floor reading books and newspapers and writing down his experience in a diary.
- Once his story spread around, concerned and generous people started sending him some money.
- In 1995, 7 years into his stay at Terminal 1, Belgium agreed to send the necessary documents by mail. On top of that, France even granted Nasseri a residence permit.
- But his new papers were under his birth name, Mehran Karimi Nasseri, and they had his nationality listed as Iranian, which he said wasn’t factual.
- Nasseri's lawyer said that at first, his client was pretty sharp and his story made total sense! But over time, the details started changing and getting mixed up to the point that it became anything but believable.
- In 2006, Nasseri finally left the airport 18 years after he’d first set foot there. Unfortunately, it wasn't his voluntary choice. He’d gotten sick and was taken to the hospital.

-Hotels appreciate guests who make the hotel their favorite.
-Ask the hotel directly for a half-day option.
-If you want to access your room early or leave after the given check-out time, be sure to ask whether it’s possible in advance.
-The hotel can provide an extra bed or cot for little guests without a problem, but you should let them know that you need it before you arrive.
-If you’re traveling within the US, it won’t hurt to have a photo ID on you since different states have different legislation regarding this matter.
