If you travel around Thanksgiving or Christmas, you’ve probably had a run-in with airport delays, weather interruptions, lost luggage or figuring out how on earth to get all your gifts into one suitcase.
Got any holiday travel survival tricks up your sleeve? We’d love to hear them!
Here’s one to get you started: If you’re flying, book the earliest flight of the day. You’ll have a better chance of getting out before delays clog up the airport.
Share your holiday travel secrets in the comments below, and your tip could be featured in an upcoming email!
1. If you're flying: book your tickets 2 months in advance. Researchs have shown cheapest prices are given by airlines about 60 days prior to the travel date.
2. Don't buy gifts! Are you going on a holiday or on a shopping spree?? Relax, so you won't find yourself spending all your time looking for gifts, which is actually grandmothers habit.
3. Always look in advance for the best choice of reaching your hotel from the airport. Lots of times a taxi is the worst way, while other methods of transportation are more cost efficient.
4. If you're at the airport during busy times purchase a fast track pass for the security - you can thank me for that tip when you're already sitting in the lounge or the gate while all others are still in the queue.
