AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you have a flight to catch Monday morning you might want to plan some extra travel time.

Austin Bergstrom International Airport says Austin City Limits and business travelers are expected to create long lines. According to the ABIA twitter, people should get to the airport at least two hours early.

You might want to plan even longer if you’re going to be heading out during peak travel times. The top times people take off are between 5 to 8 a.m., 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Travel tips:

  • Packing: Take pictures of your suitcase in case it gets lost
  • Call your credit card company before you leave so you don’t get an unhappy hold while on vacation
  • Picking up: Wait in the free cell phone lot. A place for you to stop and play Candy Crush while you wait for your friend to arrive
