Say you just arrived at the airport on the way to your holiday destination. You’re excited, ready to take to the skies and then… that security line. It has more twists than a candy cane. Before you start stressing, we can help. This holiday season we’ve partnered with CLEAR® to give the gift of less time spent in the airport security line. If you’re traveling for the holidays and new to CLEAR Plus, sign up for a free 3-month trial* by 12/31/22, so you and your pumpkin pie can get to your gate with ease.

First things first: what’s CLEAR Plus?

CLEAR Plus helps you get through security at 45+ airports nationwide with just a glance – no need to stop and pull out your ID. Once enrolled, a CLEAR Ambassador will escort you to the front of the security line to complete screening.

How do I get started and how else can I use CLEAR?

By enrolling with CLEAR here, you’ll get instant to access to benefits like designated lanes at sports stadiums and entertainment venues, easier car rental experiences and the ability to order a beer from your phone at a game. If eligible, next time you visit one of CLEAR’s 45+ airports, show a CLEAR Ambassador the free trial code you received via email to activate your 3-months of CLEAR Plus and you’ll be on your way.

Why is KAYAK giving me this gift?

According to our survey, 43% of the US population dread having to travel during the holiday season**. Which bums us out – so to make travel more enjoyable, we’re not only helping you find your holiday flights, we’re also finding ways to get you to your gate faster.

Also, how is CLEAR Plus different from TSA PreCheck®?

CLEAR Plus is a faster way to verify your identity so you don’t have to wait in crowded lines to have your ID checked, while TSA PreCheck® expedites the physical screening process so you don’t have to remove your shoes, laptop, belt, etc. Use them together to help you get through airport security quicker and with less stress.

What else do I need to know?

After the 3 month trial, your CLEAR Plus membership will auto-renew at $189/year. And while we hope you realize you never want to travel without it again, if it’s not for you – know you can cancel at any time before your free trial ends to avoid being charged. Pro tip: set a calendar reminder towards the end of your free 3 months so you can make the decision that works for you.
