For those not interested in spending money to be entertained at airports, a traveller has revealed five free things you can get in terminals.

Tiktoker @girlvsglobe showed how she kills time while waiting for flights without spending a penny.

They include WiFi, water, soft play areas, magazines and some beauty products, with testers in the duty free lounge there for travellers to try out.

Luggage tags are also available for free at airports, so travellers can mark their bags.

However, some people have warned about putting home addresses on it – as it puts your house at risk if the bag is stolen.

A travel expert told USA Today: “Don't list your home address on luggage tags.

"Play it safe by using electronic luggage tags, or by listing only your basic contact information on a luggage tag.

“Virtually everyone within an airport can see the information written on your suitcase tag, so limiting the personal information while providing enough for the airline to return lost luggage is key.

“Most experts agree that if you can avoid listing your home address, you will be less likely to be targeted for a robbery while you are away."
