Colorado Springs, Colorado · About Transportation

Discover the little known secrets of reading and understanding your boarding pass!

For many travelers the most stressful part of their trip is the airline portion between their home and destination or their destination back home.

For any person, having to work your way through an airport, all while having a clock ticking down on you, can be stressful.

At Travel N Relax we take our name seriously and truly want you to be able to relax while travelling.

To that end, we believe that by arming our guests with knowledge that most travelers do not possess, you will be able to enjoy a more relaxed vacation as you become capable of addressing any immediate issues that you may encounter en-route.

One key element that we have discovered that most travelers do not understand is how to read their own airline boarding pass.

Once most travelers make it through the security checkpoint, the first thing they do is look at their boarding pass again to double check their gate number and boarding time. At some point prior to boarding you will most likely also recheck your pass for your boarding zone and seat number.

These pieces of information are generally easily understood by most travelers.

However, aside from these key elements, there are several other numbers and letters scattered across the boarding pass that most people have no understanding of. This random gobbledygook is often ignored as it is seen by many as just a selection of secret unreadable codes that have no relevance to the traveler.

Yet far from being secret, nor random, each of these codes plays a key role in getting you to your destination and should be known by the traveler. Armed with this knowledge, you will be able to make sure that your ticket has been correctly booked and to also wisely address any airline booking issues that the airline might confront you with during your travels.

In this series we will break down your boarding pass to make you an educated traveler who is not only able to decipher the codes to make sure your booking is correct, but also to make you an airline ninja capable of addressing any airline booking issues that may arise.

Armed with your education which Travel N Relax will provide, you may even discover that you become a hero to a fellow traveler whom you rescue who does not possess this insider information!
