The U.S. Transportation Security Administration announced today that CLEAR has been added as the third approved TSA PreCheck enrollment provider, joining Idemia and Telos.

According to TSA’s announcement, TSA PreCheck members now have the option of renewing their membership with CLEAR, Idemia, or Telos, regardless of their initial enrollment company. Here’s what you need to know.

You Can Now Enroll in TSA PreCheck With CLEAR

CLEAR is a program that utilizes biometrics technology for efficient airport security, permitting members to skip the regular TSA security and TSA PreCheck lines.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) operates TSA PreCheck, which is 1 of the 5 Trusted Traveler Programs. TSA PreCheck enables low-risk travelers to streamline the security screening at airports and various locations nationwide.

Enrolling in both programs guarantees that travelers will no longer have to endure long security lines again … or at least not the lengthy queues they experienced before signing up.

Members of TSA PreCheck now have the option to conveniently renew their memberships and apply for CLEAR at the same time, taking advantage of a bundled deal.

How To Enroll in TSA PreCheck With CLEAR

Applicants have the option to sign up for TSA PreCheck through CLEAR by either pre-enrolling online or visiting 1 of the 3 CLEAR enrollment locations. These locations include Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), Orlando International Airport (MCO), and Sacramento International Airport (SMF). The TSA has stated that additional airports will become accessible in the future for enrollment.

CLEAR typically costs $189 per year and TSA PreCheck starts at $78 for a 5-year membership. However, if you enroll in TSA PreCheck through CLEAR, you can take advantage of both programs for a discounted bundle rate of $200. Travelers who pre-enroll are required to complete the process within 14 days to secure the discounted price.

“TSA PreCheck with enrollment by CLEAR provides a fast and efficient airport experience,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “This is a win-win for U.S. travelers who will have access to more enrollment locations, expanded hours and other benefits.”
