This is the second in a series of tips for all those planning vacations (see Tip #1). You might save some money. You might save a lot of money.
Summer Travel Tip: Free Water
It’s happened to all of us: You unthinkingly make your way to security with a water bottle in hand only to watch it get tossed. That’s right, Only containers that can hold up to 3.4 ounces of liquid are allowed (more banned items here).
Hydration is important while traveling, but are you stuck paying the high prices charged by airport shops or the water fees charged by airlines like Allegiant, Frontier and Spirit? No.
Where to Find Water Filling Stations
Several airports offer water refill stations (also called hydration or bottle stations) which allows passengers who’ve passed through security with an empty bottle to fill it up without spilling. Here are a few.
Click the airport name for station locations.
- Atlanta: Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport
- Boston: Logan International
- Chicago: O’Hare International and Midway International
- Denver: Denver International
- Minneapolis: Minneapolis-St. Paul International
- San Francisco: San Francisco International
- Seattle: Seattle-Tacoma International
If you know one we missed, tell us on Facebook and we’ll add it to the list. Tip: If your airport has no refill stations, bring an empty bottle anyway and look for a drinking fountain. Filling it might be a little awkward but free is free.
