Traveling pretty much any time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, whether it’s for business or pleasure, can be a huge pain. It’s much more crowded than other times of the year and tempers are shorter than usual. Here are some tips for avoiding travel mishaps over the holidays.
Leave Extra Early
More people means longer wait times. If you typically get to the airport 1.5 hours before a flight, give it two this time of year.
Carry Your Bags
Don’t leave your luggage to chance. Baggage handlers are dealing with a lot more bags than usual, so trim your packing list and carry your bag. That way you’ll never have to worry about a delay or lost luggage.
Get Travel Insurance
If your flight is delayed and miss your connection, you’ll be glad you can get your money back or book new flights, rental cars and hotel rooms with ease.
Bring hand sanitizer or wipes, wash hands regularly, and stock up on vitamin C.
