Navigating the System: Expert Advice on Checking Your Reservation Like a Pro
Are you someone who loves to travel but dreads the hassle of checking your reservation? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we will provide you with expert advice on how to check your reservation like a pro. Whether you’re booking a flight, hotel, or rental car, these tips and tricks will ensure that your reservation process is smooth and stress-free.
Understanding Different Reservation Systems
Before diving into the specifics of checking your reservation, it’s essential to understand the different types of reservation systems. Airlines, hotels, and car rental companies typically use their own unique systems for managing reservations. While some systems may be similar in functionality, it’s crucial to familiarize yourself with each one to avoid any confusion during the check-in process.
For flights, most airlines have their own online portals or mobile apps where passengers can easily check their reservations. These platforms allow you to view your flight details, make changes if necessary, and even select seats. It’s advisable to download the airline’s app onto your smartphone for quick access to all your reservation information.
Hotels often use third-party booking websites like Expedia or Booking.com for managing reservations. In this case, it’s best to visit the website where you made your booking and log into your account. Once logged in, navigate to the “My Reservations” section or something similar where you can find all the details about your upcoming stay.
Car rental companies usually have their own websites where customers can manage reservations. Similar to airlines and hotels, these websites offer dedicated sections for checking reservations. Make sure you have confirmation emails handy when accessing these portals as they often require reference numbers or booking codes.
Checking Flight Reservations
When it comes to checking flight reservations like a pro, utilizing an airline’s online portal or mobile app is essential. Start by downloading the app onto your smartphone and creating an account if you don’t already have one. Once logged in, navigate to the “My Trips” or “My Reservations” section, where you can enter your booking reference number or e-ticket number.
After entering the required information, the system will display all relevant details regarding your flight reservation. This includes the flight number, departure and arrival times, seat assignments, and any additional services you may have availed (such as extra baggage or in-flight meals). If you need to make any changes to your reservation, such as upgrading your seat or adding more baggage allowance, most airline apps offer these options as well.
Checking Hotel Reservations
For hotel reservations made through third-party websites like Expedia or Booking.com, accessing your reservation details is typically straightforward. Start by visiting the website where you made your booking and logging into your account. Look for a section labeled “My Reservations,” “Upcoming Stays,” or something similar.
Once you’ve found the appropriate section, enter your credentials to access all relevant information about your hotel reservation. This includes the check-in and check-out dates/times, room type booked, amenities included in your stay, and any special requests you made during booking (such as a non-smoking room or a specific view).
It’s also essential to review the cancellation policy associated with your hotel reservation. Knowing this information will help you avoid any potential penalties if you need to modify or cancel your booking later on.
Checking Car Rental Reservations
If you’ve booked a rental car for an upcoming trip, checking your reservation is relatively straightforward. Most car rental companies have their own dedicated websites where customers can access their reservations. Start by visiting the website of the company from which you made the booking.
Look for a section labeled “Manage Reservation” or something similar on their website’s homepage. Once there, enter the required details such as confirmation number or booking code, along with your name and email address. The system will then display all relevant information about your rental car reservation, including the pickup and drop-off dates/times, the type of vehicle booked, and any additional services or upgrades you may have selected.
If you need to make changes to your car rental reservation, such as extending the duration or opting for a different vehicle category, most websites offer options to modify your booking directly through their portal.
Checking your reservation doesn’t have to be a daunting task. By understanding the different reservation systems used by airlines, hotels, and car rental companies, you can navigate through the process with ease. Remember to utilize online portals and mobile apps offered by these service providers for quick access to all relevant information about your reservations. With these expert tips in mind, you’ll be checking your reservations like a pro in no time.

Manage UniFi DHCP reservations on UDM via shell
I'd like to be able to manage DHCP reservations on my Ubiquiti Dream Machine (UDM) directly via shell (scripting or Ansible would also be acceptable). I've tried to locate dhcpd or dnsmasq configuration files that can be edited and persist through reboots or upgrades but am coming up blank. Is this possible on Unifi OS (3.x)? Are the service and config actually inside the unifi container?
- I would like to bump this question. I have about 120 static reservations that I would like to be able to edit via a single file if possible. – Chris Puckett Oct 24 at 11:23

- Static DHCP Reservations for Unifi Devices
I switched my home network over to Unifi gear a few years back and have been thoroughly impressed. In my experience, it’s fast, reliable, and fairly inexpensive. However, some of the user interface can be a little less than intuitive. I hit the following friction point every time I add a new piece of Unifi gear to the network.
Creating DHCP Reservations for Unifi Gear
I like to keep my networking infrastructure in a loosely organized IP topology. Rather than hard-coding static addresses on the specific devices, I prefer to create DHCP reservations. You would think this would be easy, but for some unfathomable reason, the Unifi controller hides the ability to set DHCP-assigned IPs for Unifi specific gear. It’s important to note that these steps are not necessary for regular devices on your network, just for the infrastructure.
Find your new device on the Devices tab in your Controller. In this example, I’ll be giving a static IP to u6-lite-01 .
Select your new device and expand the Details tab to find your device’s MAC address. Write the MAC down somewhere.
- Navigate to the Clients screen in the controller and select + Add Client at the top.
Add a new client with MAC + alias, click Add (don’t set fixed IP yet!).
- Still on the Clients screen, select + All Configured Clients on the top.
Filter to your newly added alias.
- Select your new device.
Navigate to the Network tab and give it the fixed ip.
- Find your device and restart it.
Enjoy your AP at its new IP!

Failed IP reservation leading to network problems. 18.104.22.168
Is there any way to just remove the old router from the equation entirely? Like off the network, powered down, in a drawer? And can you post a screen shot (minus any PII if any shows up in there) of the new router's DHCP table? Also what's the make and model of the new router?
I took all the WAPs offline, tried again, not sure if it was the issue, but the reserved IP worked this time. Will reconnect WAPs and try again.
Yeah... I dont suppose you have a handy diagram of your network architecture?
Nope, sorry. I think it is pretty normal, with a few switches. Only exciting things are the WAPs, which are at endpoints and one is used as a switch as well. I am going to go through them with a fine toothed comb….
Yeah I suspect those WAPs are doing more than WAPing... or somewhere someplace you have another DHCP server on the network. I had a pretty convoluted wireless network all relying on Liinksys Velop nodes. Finally ripped it all out and went with a 100% Unifi network and it was a game-changer. Cost a small fortune but worth every bit.
Thanks again! I will check out Unifi.
Just curious, which Unifi products do you use?
I use the Unifi Dream Machine Pro as my network appliance, connected to a 24 port distribution switch. From there I have riser cable going to four access points (2 U6-LR and 2 U6-Lite) and four 16-port PoE switches.
I installed a UDM Pro last weekend and had the same issues. Even if I set a static IP on the hub and rebooted it, it still got an address from DHCP. It was really frustrating but after several reboots the static IP seemed to stick. I really couldn't pin down what the issue was though.
Then I set up a separate IOT network and ran into problems again. However, I definitely made a mistake with my setup. I configured a static address of 10.0.2.8 on the hub, but I didn't change the network assignment for the port the hub was plugged into, so it was still connected to a network with a 10.0.1.0/24 address range. and it ended up with a 10.0.1.x address.
Perhaps HE checks somehow to see if the static address you configured is valid and if not, reverts back to DHCP. That would probably be a good thing, otherwise the hub would be inaccessible until it was connected to a network with the proper address range, and that could be a real pain to straighten out.
Ubiquiti APs are just dumb APs, so they shouldn't have any bearing on the IP address assigned by DHCP.
I understand the "small fortune" comment, BTW. I figure this stuff is going to last a lot longer than the consumer grade stuff it replaced though.
I always set my reservations within Pfsense(the router)and it never fails. If you set a static on an end device, that could cause a conflict, as the router's DHCP could have used that address already or might in the future if there is a power blip and several devices reconnect at once. I set a very small DHCP pool, 5 addresses, all the rest are static. So I know right away when anything new shows up, if it belongs it gets a static address
Often DHCP servers will check to make sure another device is not using the reserved IP before assigning it. If you have multiple devices using the same IP (perhaps due to multiple DHCP servers in the network or static configuration, like Rxich mentioned), you will have all kinds of problems with reserved addresses.

DHCP IP reservation or set a static IP address for a device
To get the most out of Google Home, choose your Help Center: U.S. Help Center, U.K Help Center , Canada Help Center, Australia Help Center .
When you use DHCP IP reservation, you're telling your Wi-Fi network to assign the same IP address to a specific device whenever that device connects to your network.
Why use DHCP IP reservation or static IP
Most devices use DHCP, which assigns dynamic IP addresses, as a default. But sometimes you want devices to always have the same IP address.
For example, a wireless printer. When you print something, your computer and printer locate each other using IP addresses. If your printer’s IP address keeps changing, your computer may not always be able to find it. Giving your printer a static IP address ensures that your computer always knows the address of your printer as it won’t change if it’s rebooted or if a DHCP IP lease expires.
- You'll need DHCP IP reservation (static IP for your client) if you want to set up port forwarding to that device.
- You can customise the subnet that you use under LAN settings (if you prefer to use a different subnet).
- This article applies only to local devices connected to your router (laptop, smartphone, tablet, etc.). They can have static IP addresses that only your router sees. The outside world won’t see these static IP addresses. But your router can also have a static IP address that the rest of the Internet sees. Find out more about static IP for your Wifi point’s WAN .
Change your DHCP settings
- Tap the device for which you’d like to assign a static IP.
Note : You may need to disconnect this device from your Wi-Fi network and reconnect it before it is assigned the reserved IP.
