[You all know that I love TSA Pre✓®, so I was more than happy to cooperate with IdentoGO on a sponsored post about how people can sign up for the service. If you haven’t yet, it’s most definitely worth considering.]
Traveling on a tight schedule can be stressful for anyone as readers of The Cranky Flier know. From the businessperson who has to catch a flight immediately after an important meeting to a family with children that have to be corralled, it is difficult enough to make a flight on time. This is doubly challenging when you think about all the things that are out of your control as a traveler: Traffic, weather, and of course, the length of the security lines. But for those with TSA Pre✓®,the expedited security program of the Transportation Security Administration, at least one of those things is no longer a worry. The screening process, which begins with a quick trip to your local IdentoGO Center (click here to schedule an appointment), allows people to go through security stress-and-hassle-free at a fraction of the time they were able to before.
Since it was introduced to the general public in 2013, TSA Pre✓® has grown quickly and now includes more than 1 million enrolled fliers. Now, it’s even easier to sign up with more locations coming online to facilitate enrollment. There are now more than 300 IdentoGO centers or airport enrollment locations nationwide. You can click here to see which ones have extended their hours for the summer months to make it even more convenient for travelers to join and travel smarter.
Enrolling in TSA Pre✓® is an easy process and takes just a few, quick steps. First, fill out this online application and schedule an appointment at your local enrollment location. Before your appointment, make sure you bring your driver license and another approved identity document, including a passport, green card, or social security card. Be sure to bring a credit card, money order, company check, or certified/cashier’s check to your appointment. When you arrive at the enrollment center, you’ll be asked to present your application, get your fingerprints scanned, and pay the $85 application fee. The whole appointment will take only minutes, and you’ll save all this time back the first time you fly with TSA Pre✓®.
Within a few weeks, if everything checks out, you’ll receive your confirmation, along with your Known Traveler Number (KTN), in the mail. Remember to use the KTN every time you book a flight on these airlines as it will clear you for TSA Pre✓® when you arrive at the airport. You’ll be covered for 5 full years of TSA Pre✓® status once approved.
