One of my favorite travel hacks is Global Entry. If you are a frequent traveler and you haven't signed up for Global Entry yet- what are you waiting for!?
Global Entry is an incredible way to speed up the process of flying both domestically and internationally. It enables you to have access to TSA Pre Check, which are similar to flying before September 11th, 2001. To learn more about it you can read my previous post detailing what Global Entry does and how to obtain it.
Although I had no problem scheduling my appointment for Global Entry in Charlotte, most find they have to wait up to 6 months to have their appointment with Customs & Border Protection. For those of you in Southern California, specifically in the LA area, you are in luck! Protravel is having a special event in Encino to ease the process.
If you apply for Global Entry no later than June 1, 2015 you can get an appointment to come into the Protravel office (6345 Balboa Blvd., Building II, Suite 325 Encino, CA 91316) on July 21, 2015 to meet with Customs and Border Protection for your required interview. Times available are between 10am and 3pm.

No matter how you decide to go about getting Global Entry, I can't recommend it enough. It is a time saver and a stress reducer, and while traveling we could all use more time and less hassle. In fact, you may even stop having uncontrollable angst toward TSA since you will hardly have to deal with them.
