TSA Pre® allows expedited screening for low risk travellers that make use of dedicated lanes and don’t need to remove shoes, belts, jackets and even laptops, while going through security. The program is available for $85 (for five years) to US citizens, US nationals and lawful permanent residents of the US. Once approved, members get a ‘Known Traveler Number’ which can be included while making airline reservations. Members of Global Entry, Nexus and Sentri are also eligible for TSA PreCheck screening.

Quick Tips: 

  • Enroll in Global Entry instead ($100 US) – Several credit cards in US offer Global Entry fee credits
  • Nexus ($50 US) comes with expedited immigration in both US and Canada, along with TSA PreCheck and Global Entry privileges. Better bang for your buck, imo.
