Everyone dreads having to chug a full bottle of water before entering security; or worse, having to simply throw it away when it’s still ¾ of the way full. Many think traveling with food and drink can become a sticky situation. However, there are a few tips and tricks passengers may not know when it comes to traveling with food and drink that make the process much easier. Relax and Ride, Carlisle is here to help inform you about food essentials before you step foot in your next airport.

Consider bringing a reusable water bottle! It’s important to stay hydrated in the summer heat. It’s also annoying to buy a $4 water bottle while you sit at your boarding gate. Therefore, bring a reusable water bottle and fill it up at a water filling station in your gate area. In BWI Airport, a stop for Relax and Ride, there is a new water bottle station located within the Lug Accessory store, in addition to other areas. Pro tip: just make sure your bottle is empty when you take it through the X-ray security screening. Plastic and metal bottle are allowed.

Good news, you are allowed to pack your own food and bring it through security. From pizza to cereal to fruits and vegetables, solid food is allowed in your carry-on items. When going through security it may be expected you separate your food from your bag. Yet, once you’re through security, feel free to munch on your homemade sandwich on your flight. This is a great tip to know if you have picky eaters or don’t feel like spending a ton of money on food found in the airport gates.
