A SLEEP expert has revealed the best way to sleep safely at the airport if your flight has been cancelled.
We’ve all seen pictures of dozing travelers falling asleep in the terminal.
Some lie down on benches, others have no choice but to fall asleep lying on the floor.
However, there are a number of tips and tricks that can help you make your airport visit better and more hassle-free.
Bringing noise-cancelling headphones, an eye mask, and warm accessories will greatly improve the quality of your sleep.
The second thing you need to do is choose a suitable place to sleep.
Donna recommends going to the arrival airport rather than the departure airport because that’s where the airports expect people to be and you’ll be less disturbed.
When looking for a place to relax, prioritize comfort and safety.
However, be warned that certain sections that may be closed during the day will no longer be accessible.
And once you’ve found your temporary sleeping spot, it’s important to start taking safety precautions.
If you have a partner, you can sleep in shifts so you can be alert at all times.
If you are traveling alone, be sure to hide your valuables and secure them to your bags so no one tries to steal them while you sleep.
Airports can be bright and loud. Therefore, try to take packed items with you.
Your bags or a pile of clothes can act as pillows and bedding, helping to block out light and noise.
However, some airlines may provide an extra bed to passengers on canceled flights.
Others may provide you with a room in an airport hotel as part of an indemnity agreement.
