Use these tips to enjoy your holiday travels.
If you are planning your holiday vacation, you are not alone. Thousands of other people are packing their bags and heading to the airport. To ensure your holiday cheer is not ruined by your holiday travels, keep these holiday travel survival tips in mind.
- Stay connected – download a few travel apps before you leave the house so that you know that to expect. There are many travel apps that can give you up to the minute updates on flight delays and can help you figure out how much time you will spend in security.
- Pack light – if you don’t have to check a bag, you can save tons of time. Try to fit everything you need into a carry-on if possible. If you are bringing any gifts, ship them before hand so that your perfect wrapping job does not have to get torn apart by security.
- Bring earplugs – if you have ever been on a flight with a crying baby, you know how valuable earplugs can be. Keeping the noise level down can help reduce your stress.
- Fuel up – the only thing worse than being stressed while at the airport is being stressed and hungry. Bringing some snack with you can help to keep your belly full so that you don’t have to spend $15 on a granola bar in the airport.
