How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Ames
Make your journey to Ames that little bit easier by following these helpful security tips:

  • Have your boarding pass and passport easily accessible. They’ll be the first things you’ll be asked to produce by airport security staff.
  • USB sticks, wallets and wrist watches should be put in a tub for X-raying. If you pass through the body scanner with any of these items, you’ll be requested to turn back and remove them.
  • Laptops need to be removed from their cases and placed in a tray before going through the X-ray machine.
  • When it comes to flying with liquids and gels, all passengers are permitted a quart-sized clear resealable bag to store containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Hiking footwear and other heavy shoes tend to be X-rayed by security personnel. Think about wearing simple sneakers instead.
  • Multi-tools and corkscrews are prohibited inside the aircraft. Stash them away in your checked luggage to avoid them being confiscated at the security checkpoint.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.

 

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.

 

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on Travelocity.ca from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.
