  • Wear loose clothing and keep a sweater/jacket with you in case you get cold.
  • Get up and walk around periodically to stretch your legs and circulate your blood.
  • Bring a travel pillow so you can sleep more easily.
  • Some airlines offer more room in the back of the plane, so before you book your seat, look into it.
  • Drink water and avoid alcohol to prevent dehydration.
  • If your flight is more than four hours, consider upgrading to a seat with more legroom.
  • Park with Winner and get peace of mind knowing that your car is safe with us.
