Need some trustworthy intel about healthy airline travel to help you make the most of your upcoming spring break trip? Good news: That is the The Points Guy‘s bread and butter—or, er jet fuel. Brian Kelly, founder and CEO of the travel-tips platform, has two simple hacks to ensure you arrive at your final destination well-rested, without even the threat of jet lag clouding the sunny skies of your vacay.

Kelly tells me his go-to technique to evade jet lag is one that can help everyone: plenty of water (but opt for the bottled stuff since in-flight taps have been found to be of questionable cleanliness).

“Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Dehydration exacerbates jet lag. So, even if you’re tempted by the champagne or other alcohol on the plane, make sure you’re drinking enough water to keep up with it.” —Brian Kelly, founder and CEO of The Point’s Guy

“Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Dehydration exacerbates jet lag,” Kelly says. “So, even if you’re tempted by the champagne or other alcohol on the plane, make sure you’re drinking enough water to keep up with it.”

And while Kelly fancies himself a pro at sleeping on planes, he notes snoozing at cruising altitude isn’t always a great idea. Sure, sleep during your flight if it’s an overnight one, but beware of time zone time warps that can contribute to jet lag once you land. “Don’t sleep when you get to a destination unless its nighttime,” he says. “If you change your sleeping habits before the flight and adjust yourself to the local time of where you’re flying, that could also help in reducing jet lag.”

With these rest-maximizing tips and the platform’s just-released Best and Worst US Airlines in 2018 report (Alaska Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and Delta came out on top, with JetBlue trailing due to late arrivals, baggage and change fees, and customer satisfaction) at your fingertips, you’re sure to travel like a pro on your next trip. Just don’t forget your tennis ball in your carry-on.
