8 Holiday Travel Tips for Surviving the Holiday Rush

8 Holiday Travel Tips for Surviving the Holiday Rush

Travel Tips for the Holiday Season

The season is upon us and everybody is getting ready for the madness. Here are some tips for helping you get through it all.

1. Try to get a direct flight

If you’re flying into a city that is known for getting snow, your better off getting a direct flight. These tickets are sometimes more expensive, but it ups your chances for getting there on time with your luggage.

2. Get travel insurance

You never know what’s going to happen before or during your trip. During t he holidays you will most likely be traveling with your family. Did you know there is family travel insurance packages? With travel insurance for the holidays, you can cover your presents, your trip, and your health in case anything were t happen to you during your travels. Travel with peace of mind with the right trip insurance for you. Get a quote here.

3. Stay updated on travel alerts

Make sure you get notifications from your airline or travel agency to stay updated on any delays or changes to your flight. During the holidays planes move gates and get delayed due to weather, so be on top of it. There are travel apps out there that will help you keep everything organized. If you are traveling internationally, it’s good to follow all major travel alerts.

4. Dealing with the security line

Everyone hates going through the security check, but it has to be done. It amazes me that after all these years people still don’t have it together when it comes to the security line. Make sure you have easy access to your laptop and other electronics. Wear some slip on shoes  so you can get your shoes on an off faster. Have your wallet, boarding pass, watch and any jewelry you have off and put in a safe place before going through the scanners. And as always, help the person in front of you if they’re having a hard time moving along.

5. Travel light

If you haven’t traveled in a while you will notice some things have changed. Since airlines started charging for luggage, more and more people are taking their luggage on as a carry item. The problem is, the airlines don’t really enforce the rules behind the size of your carry on. Because of this, the overhead compartments tend to fill up quick and they then force people to check in their luggage. By traveling as light as you can with a smaller carry on, you have better chances of fitting your luggage onboard.

6. Bring food and a water bottle

Nowadays airlines don’t serve food on the plane, and if they do it’s a bag of measly peanuts or something. Pack some snacks like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, banana, or granola bar. Also, a lot of airports have special water bottle water fountains for you to fill up your reusable water bottle. You can’t bring water through security, but you can bring an empty water bottle. You can then fill it up in the terminal, or pay $6 for a bottle of water.

7. Ship presents and even your clothes

Avoid the carry on luggage debacle and ship your presents to wherever you’re going. This will lighten your load and will make your trip less stressful and more enjoyable. Sit back and relax.

8. Bring a deck of cards

You never know when you won’t be able to get internet or charge your phone. Also, sometimes  you get stuck with an older plane and the entertainment doesn’t work. If you don’t feel like paying for the outrageous Wi-Fi prices and you didn’t bring a book or magazine, you’re stuck with talking to your neighbor. With a deck of cards you can bust out an old fashioned game of solitaire. It’s a good idea to bring an old fashioned deck of cards to entertain you or your family during any unforeseen delays.
