Christmas Travel Tips


Many people absolutely loathe holiday travels and while you may be one of them, traveling doesn’t have to be difficult. There are plenty of things you can do now to make your trip easier. Travel smarter this time around with these Christmas travel tips:

Plan Ahead. Pack a week in advance so you have time to remember anything you would otherwise forget. Book your flight weeks, if not a month, in advance to get the flight you want and maybe even save some money. Know the TSA’s rules on liquids and packaging so you aren’t stopped at security for something minor.  This will help you get through the preloading process quicker.

Avoid Crowds. Avoiding the traveling masses is easier said than done. A lot of the avoidance is a result at what time you choose to fly. Flying in the early morning or late at night will result in fewer crowds, allowing you to get to your gate faster. Early flights are also less likely to experience delays, due to them being the first flights of the day.

Ship via Mail. Send the luggage you don’t need for the flight to your destination via snail mail. Things like extra clothes and Christmas presents will slow you down and could result in baggage fees.
