Tips & tricks

I try to travel as much as possible by train to the airport. Not only good for the environment, it makes me save the expensive parking costs. I leave well in advance to avoid stress. I buy my train ticket (extra diabolo charge!) in advance via the NMBS app and check in online, to be able to choose my seat in the plane and so I can immediately drop off the luggage when arriving at the airport.

I wrote this blogpost for the Belgian railway company NMBS. On their website you can read the entire article (this one is a shorter version) in Dutch.
