Useful Tips for Holiday Travels

Holiday travel can be a bite expensive, stressful and crowded because many people travel at this time. When travelling during the holiday you might face some challenges.

Common among them include:

  • Delayed flights
  • Cranky travellers
  • Long lines at the check points

To avoid the hustles of holiday travel, follow these tips:

  1. Book Flight in a Less Busy Airport

People living near or in a metropolitan area have at least one major airport. To avoid the stress of booking flight in a major airport, go to a less busy airport. For example, if you live in New York, book flight from Westchester County Airport. Flights from smaller airports are cheaper and the airports are less crowded during the holiday.

  1. Travel at Night or Early in the Morning

Traveling late at night or early in the morning is convenient since most airports are not congested. Secondly, morning and evening flights are better because there are few delays. Traveling during the peak hour is hectic because everybody is in a hurry to travel at that time.

  1. Research Your Destination

It’s advisable that you research the routes that you intend to take. That’s because traffic can make your travel overwhelming and stressful especially when traveling with children. Take an alternative route to avoid traffic congestion. If possible, plan for a stopover to relax and have some fresh air.

  1. Pack Smart

When packing, make sure that you pack everyone’s favorites before leaving the house. Pack liquids, gel and paste in a separate bag to avoid inconveniences at the security checkpoint. Ensure that every liquid container holds 3.4 ounces. This makes work easier for the Transport Security Administration (TSA). Pack these items separately to speed up the screening process.

  1. Plan for Ground Transportation in Advance

To avoid stress and confusion after landing, plan for ground transportation since the airport can be crowded and busy. In most airports, you will get taxis and limos ready to get you to your travel destination.

Follow these tips to make your holiday travels less stressful and enjoyable.
