    If you want to refill your water bottle, the only fountain is provided by Itsu, located left of their tills. Free to use for anyone.

    Getting ready to head overseas to the land of expensive data? Don't forget to cache your maps! Open Google Maps, select the area you're travelling to in the frame of your screen and type 'OK maps'.

    If you have a choice between national ID and passport, go for passport because it will save you lots of time when entering the UK using the automatic passport/face scanners.

    If you lost your flight, find your way back to the outside area by following missed flights VP9 (go back through the way you came and you will eventually find it). Ryanair has a flat rate of 110£.

    The zip bags that half the tips are complaining about paying for; they give them out at the bag X-ray bit free of charge. Quite polite too! (I'm here really early though if that makes a difference)

    Get the meal deal for £3.75 at WHSmith which includes a sandwich, a drink and a snack bar/fruit for a quick bite. Try the piri piri chicken if you can't make up your mind!

    Gourmet Hot Dog in the main concourse is the least Gourmet experience I have ever had. Served up a cold sausage and when I asked for a hot one the guy picked it up with his fingers and offered it.

    My favourite regional airport, but beware if picking up / dropping off - short stay parking is extortionate. 2hrs free parking at nearby Birchanger Services - wait there for your passenger to call!

    Security here can be SUPER slow, invest in Fast Track. Train is the quickest (and IMHO, best) way to and from the city, unless you're going to the outskirts of London, then Uber might be better.

    Be sure to leave extra time to get through security. Liquids 100mls and less must be placed in a 20cmx20cm resealable bag and kept out of your bag separately.

    To get through security as fast as possible, join a queue that is near the middle. These queues feed both sides of the security islands, while the end queues only feed one side so move half the speed.

    Dropping people off by car? Follow signs for express set down, then you pay £2 at the exit. There's a change machine but you can pay by card! Free set down is at a car park a short free bus ride away

    (1) on the train platforms, you can easily log on to the free wi-fi of the Stansted Express trains, even when you're not travelling by train; (2) if you need them, buy liquids baggies at Boots (40p).

    You can only use 2 clear bags for liquids even though dispensers sell in 4's. Stansted seem to have their own ruling on liquids over and above the EU directive of 1ltr in 100ml bottles!
