There are many reasons we travel – whether it be for business, vacation, or to see family and friends in other cities, and while the reason we are traveling may be exciting, usually the travel experience itself is not. Traveling can be stressful and exhausting, and many times to get the best deal possible on your flight you must accept being stuck with a layover. A layover isn’t always a bad thing as it gives you a chance to relax between your flights, but if your layover is an extended layover of many hours it can be inconvenient and lead to extreme boredom. But an extended layover doesn’t have to be either inconvenient or boring if you know how to make the most of it. Here’s how you can take advantage of an extended layover and enjoy it:
Prepare In Advance
If you are going to have an extended layover during your next flight it is time to start planning now. Research the city you will have your layover at to see what the local area has available, then contact the local luxury transportation service to see what options they have available to help you during your extended layover. If your extended layover will be at Tampa International Airport (TIA) or St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport, be sure to contact Affari Transportation to make plans to maximize the time you are gaining with your extended layover. If you know you will be having an extended layover you may also want to try to travel lightly and bring as little luggage as possible with you on your trip. If you do have luggage that is going to be checked, see if you can check your bags at the beginning of your layover with the airport so you won’t be tied down with heavy luggage during your layover.
Go On An Adventure

Get Local Input
You may have researched the city you will have an extended layover in and determined that there’s a great site you would like to go visit, but you don’t know what the local traffic conditions are like and whether it will be feasible to make the trip during your layover time.
