Travelers can save themselves time and stress at the airport by enrolling in TSA PreCheck for just $85 for five years. Being PreCheck approved means getting through the checkpoint without having to remove your shoes, belt, laptop, liquids or light jacket. According to TSA, in January 2022, 97 percent of TSA PreCheck passengers waited less than 5 minutes to get through security.
