Make the Most of Your Airport Layovers with Our Suggestions

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

It takes a lot of work to occupy every single minute of our day, not to mention long layovers at the airport. You might be used to looking at your phone, laptop or tablet for an extraordinary number of hours, but it really isn’t the only way to use up your layover time.

Whether you’re traveling solo or with someone else, you’ll want to take a look at our suggestions below to get a better idea of how you can maximize your layover time:


Work Out at the Airport

Have you ever seen individuals running around the airport or doing light stretches at corners? If you haven’t tried that before, you might want to consider giving it a go. Not only does it help our body to unwind and relax, but it’s also a great energizer and refresher. Just remember to check if there’s a shower at the airport as you wouldn’t want to board the plane all hot and sweaty.


Get Out and Explore the Area

 The outside world is big and mostly unexplored (especially if you’re in a new area), so why not go out of the airport instead? It might take a little more planning, but if your layover is for 6 or more hours, you can definitely afford to take a little side trip. Just remember to get back to the airport in time to catch your flight because waiting around any longer is just going to cost you more time and money.


Play a Game with Someone

Sure, you can snooze on your bench or reclining chair, but there really is more you can do during your layover than just catching a few winks here and there. If you have sufficient time, you can consider bringing along a board or card game. If the game requires at least two people, you can rope in your travel companion or get a stranger at the airport to help pass the time.


Chat with a Stranger

Most strangers don’t bite back. You might get a few rejections before finding someone who’s willing to talk to you, but it can definitely be worth it. Think about it this way: would you rather zone out due to boredom or open up an exciting new chapter holding promises of adventure and knowledge? Well, it might not be as exhilarating as that, but if you never try, you’ll never know.


Work Remotely

Although there are lots of things you can do during your layover, getting stressed out over work is definitely not encouraged. For those of you on a business trip, it’s quite likely that you’ll be bringing your work along (whether in digital format or otherwise). You might have quite a number of layover hours to use up, so do take the opportunity to read and reply emails, plan the following week’s schedule and even engage in communication with colleagues online.

You can probably get a public mode of transport from the airport, but if you’re looking for a ride that guarantees your safety and comfort above everything else, you really can’t go wrong with our Vancouver airport transportation service. If you’re ever in want (or need) of a ride with us, just give us a call or use our easy online booking service to get our attention.
