Pay attention to your flight path when booking flights for a trip. One layover isn’t a huge deal if you have enough time to make it to your next destination. Remember, you may have to clear customs, and depending on your flight, you may even have to recheck bags.

A non-stop flight is best, but keep the layovers to a minimum if you must have them.
