Helpful Tips For Holiday Travelers

Featured Author: Contra Costa Living Blog Team

The Thanksgiving holiday is one of the busiest travel times of the year. Whether you are driving or flying, you are likely to experience delays and travel snags. Having some foresight and planning accordingly for any issues that could affect your travel plans can make your traveling much easier! Here are some tips to make your holiday travel plans go as smooth as possible.

  • Plan Ahead: It is never too early to start planning your holiday trip. The earlier you start planning, the better seats you can get and the lower prices you can find. There may also be special holiday deals that you can take advantage of if you start your planning in time.
  • Travel Lightly: Pack only what you need! Lugging around multiple large suitcases and bags full of presents can be a hassle. Shipping presents to their destination ahead of time can give you one less thing to worry about.
  • Choose Travel Days Wisely: Some days are cheaper than others when it comes to traveling. Usually the day before Thanksgiving is the busiest day for last minute travelers.
  • Pay Attention To Forecasts: Weather can affect your travel plans whether you are flying or driving. If you are driving, bad weather may cause more traffic due to accidents. Having a GPS can help you get around the major traffic and get where you need to go if you take a detour. Bad weather can also affect those traveling by planes, by causing delays. Knowing the forecast for the time you are traveling can help you to plan for any issues or delays that might arise.
