How to use the Major Influences on Jet Lag

Katie’s Travel Toolkit with Travel+Leisure

Sarah Spagnolo from Travel+Leisure discusses the major influences on jet lag with Katie Couric and how Stop Jet Lag uses them to make your trip more productive and enjoyable.

Avoid the down time caused by jet lag

The secret to consistently beating jet lag is to correctly time all of the naturally occurring jet lag influences with the flight schedules that you booked.

There is always an optimal time to shift to your destination time zone based on your flight schedule. This time is based on your departure and arrival times, including the connections that are required to get you to your destination.

As part of the Stop Jet Lag service, a team member will review all of the specifics of the flight schedules on your trip. Then they will recommend your optimal shift time followed by prioritizing the naturally occurring jet lag influences that help you consistently beat jet lag.
