Call Your Credit or Debit Card Company Before Traveling Internationally

Google Airline Name and Flight Number for Status
This is a lot easier than downloading the airline apps and trying to figure out whether or not it is delayed.
Scan Your Passport, ID, and Itinerary
Email yourself a copy of each of them so you still have all of your important information in case you lose anything.
Book Flights on Tuesdays
This is when they are generally the cheapest.
