A traveler has revealed the costly mistake his father made in his passport at the airport. Another travel expert revealed the best airport hack that will save you a lot of money on the plane.

By posting on the popular social network Reddit, the traveler told about a "catastrophic" mistake in their passport that cost them 1600 pounds. Thus, he warned other vacationers about possible fakups at the airport. This is stated in the material of thesun.co.

The redditor told other users how he and his father started a month-long vacation from the United States, first flying to Tokyo. But after having their passports scanned at the gate, they were told that there was no room in the overhead compartment to accommodate their luggage.

The traveler adds: "I politely asked her if she could check the containers in the back again - it was a big plane. She yelled at us: "There's no more room!"".

The redditor noted that at this point, his dad put his passport on the counter while the couple checked their suitcases for what they needed before the luggage went to the compartment. The couple managed to get on the plane and were annoyed to see "a lot of space in the overhead bin." But that was after the trouble for his dad.

"After 2 hours, we realized that we couldn't find my dad's passport. The flight attendants were very kind and called us at the airport. They told us that someone had found my dad's passport 'on the floor', even though it was clearly on the stupid guard's desk," the post reads.

This meant that the couple had to fly 13 hours to Tokyo before returning home. After that, they had to shell out £1,600 to return the next day and rebook hotels.

The angry traveler finished by saying it was a "disaster" because the staff "couldn't be bothered to double-check the bin overhead".

The redditor added: "His passport was right next to their computer. There's no way someone just walked by and knocked it over. She told us she could find another flight, so my dad put his passport on her desk and she even opened it and read his name. Eventually we decided we would check our bags and boarded the flight."

Users in the comments under the post were divided. Some believed that it was your personal responsibility to keep an eye on your passport and belongings. Others said that the flight attendant "distracted" the couple and caused the fiasco.

Meanwhile, the passenger revealed a secret airport hack to avoid security lines. She claims it never takes more than ten minutes. Frequent passengers were stunned to learn how much time they can now save after discovering the incredible secret. This was reported by thesun.co.
