10 Freebies To Score At World Airports Before Your Next Flight
Travel and Leisure  

If you’re someone who hates killing time at airports, we've found a silver lining for you. Whether it's a long layover or a dreaded delay, here are the little perks that will (almost) make up for all that wasted time:


Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL)  
Shopping at the Delhi airport is not only a great way to pass time but also a profitable one because hello, amazing duty-free deals! But who wants the hassle of carrying extra luggage on the flight? Well, next time, go crazy because there's a Shop and Collect facility which will take care of all your new goods until your return: for free!
Changi Airport  
When it comes to airport recreation, Changi is a gift that keeps on giving. From free city tours to a ride on the world's tallest (a whooping 39ft) indoor airport slide, there's never a dull moment at world's best airport. Flash your boarding pass at Terminal 3's Long Bar by Raffles to score a complimentary cocktail or indulge in free whiskey tastings of over a 100 varieties at The Whiskey House at Terminal 2.
Heathrow Airport (LHR)  
Travelling with kids? Several restaurants at London's Heathrow Airport offer a free meal for kids with every adult meal purchased. While most restaurants give this deal on specific dates, some (including Gordon Ramsay Plane Food) have the offer going on round the year. Click here for the complete list.
Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (BOM)
Sign up for a free tour of the Jaya He GVK Museum at Terminal 2 of the Mumbai airport and get a taste of India's rich culture and heritage. The 15-minute art-walk has on display over 7000 Indian artefacts dated between the 8th and the 19th century. Make sure you book the tour online at least 48 hours before your flight's departure time.
Brisbane Airport QLD  
Pedal away from boredom at one of the free biking stations at Brisbane Airport. The bikes are not only made of sustainable materials but are also able to generate enough electricity to charge your phone while you're pedalling. Win-win!
Dubai International Airport (DXB) - Dubai - United Arab Emirates  
Keep a towel and some toiletries handy if you wish to take a free shower at the world's busiest airport. The complimentary facility is available at Terminal 3 between gates C18 and C22; B13 and B19; A1 and A24.
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol  
Enjoy a calming view of the runway or spot some planes from the Panorama Terrace. You can also access the cockpit of a real KLM Fokker 100 Cityhopper plane on display and learn about the history of the aircraft. Entry is free but keep a Euro handy if you wish to look through the telescopes.


Vaclav Havel Airport (PRG)  
A rather unique facility, Prague's airport has a piano that's free for public use. Crank up some tunes or listen to a fellow passenger play the next time you're at Terminal 2 of Vaclav Havel.

John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
Take a ride on the super efficient and eco-friendly Airtrain at New York's JFK International Airport. On-airport travel on the train is absolutely free and it makes frequent stops around the airport at airline terminals, parking lots, hotel shuttle areas, etc.
Cape Town International Airport (CPT)  
This one's for all the readers! Donate books or swap one for free at the airport's 'Flybrary' in the Arrivals hall. Also, don't forget to snap a picture or two at the cool couch made up of colourful suitcases!
