An overbooked flight is every traveler's worst nightmare—even if you have booked your trip in advance, no one is safe from getting bumped off. While it means being able to reap tons of discount coupons and vouchers under your name, it also means you'd have to scramble for another ride en route to your chosen destination. Avoid the headache with these helpful tips:

1. Pack light and early. 

Avoid shoving everything you need into your suitcase an hour before your flight at all costs. Instead, make a packing list and work on it at least two weeks before your flight so you're relaxed on the day before your trip. 

2. Prepare everything you need in advance. 

Aside from your luggage, it's vital to gather all the paperwork you're going to need on your trip—put your plane ticket, passport, itinerary and hotel reservations in one envelope or organizer for easy access. Or better yet, electronically scan your important travel documents before flying off.

3. Take advantage of online check-ins. 

Better yet, check in online before you even leave for the airport. This will save you the trouble of going through long lines! 

4. Arrive as early as possible at the airport.

This is especially important if you’re taking a popular route. If you’re at the gate before the majority of the passengers have checked in, your chances of retaining your original reservation are favorable.

5. Don’t book a ticket on a popular flight. 

That means more or less any time during the school breaks or holidays like Christmas—if you must travel on popular holidays, try adjusting your schedule to non-peak hours.
