8 thoughts on “Is Global Entry Worth It? – The Truth Behind TSA Precheck and Global Entry

  1. Global Entry for frequent travelers or those with small children seems worth the $100 and the hassle. However, if one does not travel as often, I think it is up to each individual person to decide if it is worth it to them or not. I think global entry is essential for those who travel often!

  2. That is really interesting and really helpful. I didn’t know you could actually get through it faster. I’ll have to keep that in mind the next time I travel.

  3. We just got a Nexus pass that gives us global entry and it is AMAZING! I can’t believe how quickly we get through security!

  4. I signed up and paid for GlobaL entry over a year ago and still have not been able to get an interview. I have even tried when i have comE back into america. Their office is always closed. What a waste of money. I’m gOing to call my credit card tomorrow for a refund. I have had tsa precheck for Almost 5 years. Its been the best. 99% of the time it works. It has DEFINITELY saved me from missing several flights. I’m a “last minute lucy”. I will be signing back up for it in a couPle months. Tsa precheck is Easy peasy!!
