Enrolling In TSA Pre✓

Enrolling in TSA Pre✓ is open to US Citizens and nationals. To enroll, you need to submit an online application, attend a 10-minute interview that includes a background check and digital fingerprinting. Successful enrollees will then be issued a Known Traveler Number (KTN), which you can add to your bookings with participating airlines. Membership is 5 years and priced at $85, which can easily be offset through a slew of premium credit cards that offer a statement credit for your TSA Pre✓ enrollment when you charge the fee to your card.

Our Take

With 92% of TSA travelers getting through security in 5 min or less, if you're a frequent traveler and don't have TSA Pre✓, you're missing out.
