How to reserve a seat in the airport security queue for free: a service that saves time and nerves

Going on a summer trip, you don’t really want to waste time in endless queues for security checks at the airport. Clear's Reserve will let you reserve a spot in line for free, according to Readers Digest.

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration reported more than 2,6 million people who cleared airport security checkpoints on a single day in June.

When your goal is to get on a plane to a comfortable, Instagram-worthy seat, the last thing you want to worry about is the airport security line. However, it is a necessary part of the process. Clear biometric identity verification service launched Clear's Reserve Lane in 2021 at Florida's Orlando Airport and has since expanded to include other airports. Here's how you can use Clear's Reserve to cut down on waiting times at the airport.

What is Clear's Reserve

Clear's Reserve Lane is a free service that allows you to pre-schedule a seat in a designated security check queue. It's similar to the paid TSA PreCheck at the airport or the Genie+ system at Disneyland, but without the monthly fee and with slightly different terms.

You must pre-book your seat in the screening queue and still show your ID to the TSA officer, but this provides a "more predictable experience," the company says.

Where is Clear's Reserve Lane available?

Since Clear's Reserve Lane is not available at every airport, you should check to see if this service is available at your departure airport. Clear's Reserve Lane is currently available at the following US airports:

  • Colorado: Denver International Airport (DEN)
  • California: Los Angeles International Airport (LAX Fast Lane)
  • Minnesota: Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP)
  • New York: John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
  • New Jersey: Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)
  • Florida: Orlando International Airport (MCO)
  • Arizona: Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX)
  • Washington: Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA Spot Saver).

Clear Reserve Lane is also available at select airports in Canada and Europe, including:

  • Amsterdam Airport Schiphol
  • Berlin Airport (BER Runway)
  • Calgary International Airport
  • Edmonton International Airport
  • Frankfurt International Airport

  • Hannover Airport
  • Montreal-Trudeau International Airport
  • Keflavik International Airport (Reykjavik)
  • Rome Fiumicino Leonardo da Vinci International Airport
  • Toronto Pearson International Airport
  • Vancouver International Airport.

Do I need to be TSA pre-screened or a Clear member to use Reserve Lane

Luckily, you don't need a TSA pre-verification or a Clear membership to use Reserve Lane. The service of booking a seat in the queue for airport security checks is free for everyone.

If you have TSA PreCheck, Clear's website says you can use Reserve Lane, but it won't direct you to the PreCheck screening area. Instead, Reserve passes the standard TSA check areas, so it does not replace TSA PreCheck.

Clear Plus members do not need a booking to access Clear Plus Lane at airports. If you use Clear's Reserve, you will not have access to Clear Plus Lane unless you are a Clear Plus member. Instead, you must find the designated Clear Reserve Lane.

How to use Clear's Reserve Lane

Using Clear's Reserve Lane is very simple:

  • First select your departure airport and the date and time you would like to reserve your seat for the standard security check.
  • After booking, you will receive a confirmation email with a QR code. The QR code is what you will use to access Reserve Lane.
  • Just show the QR code to the TSA agent and enjoy faster service.
