It’s always a good time to travel, and plus-size adventure seekers shouldn’t let their bodies hold them back from exploring the world. But we wouldn’t be telling the truth if we denied that larger travelers aren’t faced with difficulties when it comes to fueling their sense of wanderlust. Here are 15 tips on how to make traveling easy, fun, and comfortable for those who have more to love.
1. Be Strategic When Picking Airplane Seats
Many airlines allow you to pre-select your seats at the time you purchase your ticket. If you’re flying American Airlines, you can pay an extra fee to select a seat in the Main Cabin that has more leg room, or selecting a seat in the emergency exit row on any airline is guaranteed to give you more room to stretch out your legs.
Also, it’s always best to select an aisle seat when you can. You’ll have to get up and move whenever someone in your row needs to use the restroom, but at least you won’t be sandwiched between two people in the middle seat or crammed up against the window for the duration of your flight.
