Imagine you’re in Vegas for your final night and decide to make it the biggest night with plenty of booze and partying, it’s like the night will never end… until it does and then you wake up in your hotel room with THE worst hangover ever. We’ve all been there when we’re frantically searching for how to get rid of a hangover quickly but it just simply won’t go, and you’ve got a long flight to catch. Don’t let the hangover stop you from booking flights to Las Vegas, or making your flight; we’ve got some tips to help make flying a little easier.


No matter where you are when you’re hungover, there’s nothing more appetising than a really greasy breakfast. Whether that means you binge eat at the airport while waiting for your flight or enjoy breakfast at the hotel. If it works at home it’ll work in another country, plus everyone loves a good fry up!

Hangover Kit

Ok as much as we recommend not flying while hungover, if you’re going to do it at least be prepared. Put painkillers, Travacalm and Hydralyte satches all into a small bag to take with you to the airport, they will keep you feeling less sicky and hydrated which is always good.

I am also a big fan of Berocca when I’m trying to get rid of a hangover or just genuinely needing some more vitamins, you just pop it into a bottle of water and drink up and it releases energy, vitamins and minerals that give you that extra boost you might need – trust me, it works wonders.

Drink Water

Staying hydrated during a flight is essential, let alone when you’re flying hungover so be sure to keep drinking water before the flight, during and after to keep away the headache. Don’t drink coffee or tea or anything with caffeine in, it will dehydrate you and give you a short burst of energy but the crash will most likely leave you feeling even worse.

Get comfy

Like any flight you want to be comfy, but if you’re flying hungover you should try being extra comfy with extra pillows and clothing that can be built up to make a comfy seat so you can sleep throughout the flight. Sleeping is the best way of curing a hangover so you might as well make the most of the flight.

Do not drink more alcohol

I know a lot of people say to carry on drinking in the morning but please don’t do that, that’s a terrible idea. Not only will it cost you a lot more money, you’ll probably not have a clue what’s going on and you don’t want to be the star of the next newspaper article about someone causing disruption on a flight.

Don’t read

I get travel sick when reading, let alone if I was to be hungover – leave that entertainment in your main suitcase because it will not help your situation while on the flight. Stick to sleep or films!

So there you have it, our top 6 tips of how to get rid of a hangover and fly. If you can avoid it we recommend it, but we know Vegas, Ibiza and other party destinations can all allure you in for one last night of drinking and partying.
