10 Tips To Plan Your Holiday Vacation
The holidays are the busiest time of year for travel. If you are thinking of planning a holiday vacation this year, the earlier you plan the better. Here are 10 tips to make your holiday vacation go smooth……
Use a Travel Agent
- Travel Agents are the experts. They offer customized experiences that no one else can. Travel Team Agents have connections to arrange for tours, upgrades, great low rates and special things that are not available to the general public. Travel agents are also your advocate; in the event you need to upgrade your room or leave unexpectedly, your Travel Team Agent will be here for you so you can sit back and relax, knowing you are well taken care of. Call a Travel Team Agent today at 1-800-788-0829 for more information.
- Avoid peak travel dates.
For instance, if you want to travel during Thanksgiving, Wednesday is the day to generally avoid. This day before is peak, and has more travelers, and the cost is more. Traveling on the day of a holiday is often a breeze and more affordable; there are often more airfare deals on Thanksgiving day or the day of a holiday. If you are not sure which days are the best to travel, Call a Travel Team Agent today at 1-800-788-0829 for more information.
- Know your airports.
Checking alternate airports can really make a difference in price during the holidays. Smaller airports see fewer flights and, typically, fewer delays — not a minor consideration during the busy holiday travel season. You could save on parking, tickets and more by looking into airports. Call a Travel Team Agent today at 1-800-788-0829 for more information.
- Plot connections carefully.
When booking flights, build in some time for flight delays and weather woes. During the winter months, peak travel times often bring peak travel delays, and your connection is more likely to be jeopardized. Allowing for extra time just might save you a sprint through the terminal or a missed flight. Call a Travel Team Agent today at 1-800-788-0829 for more information.
- Leave early.
During peak travel times, you may see traffic jams, long lines, and full parking lots. Try to leave for the airport early to anticipate all the peripheral delays you may encounter. Call a Travel Team Agent today at 1-800-788-0829 for more information.
- Pack wisely.
TSA rules about liquids and gels states that you may bring liquids and gels in 3.4-ounce or smaller containers, packed within a single, quart-size, zip-top, clear plastic bag in your carry on. If you want to bring more than the 3.4-ounce amount, you’ll have to pack the items in your checked luggage. Call a Travel Team Agent today at 1-800-788-0829 for more information.
- Take advantage of shortcuts.
Whenever possible, print your boarding passes at home or pull up your boarding pass on your smartphone. If you buy gifts, ship them to your destination rather than bring them with you. This will cut down on luggage and the risk of them getting lost. Call a Travel Team Agent today at 1-800-788-0829 for more information.
- Travel early or late in the day.
Airports are least congested at times when most people are more likely to be home or asleep. Delays are less likely for morning flights, and airports usually unclog as the afternoon and evening peak passes. Call a Travel Team Agent today at 1-800-788-0829 for more information.
- Consider package deals.
Peak travel periods can be the best time to buy package deals (such as air/hotel or air/hotel/car), always ask you Travel Team Agent for the best rates. Call a Travel Team Agent today at 1-800-788-0829 for more information.
- Keep your cool.
Don’t lose your temper, even if things go wrong. Airline employees have considerable power over your well-being. There is nothing worse then getting on the bad side of someone who might enjoy wielding it against you. Call a Travel Team Agent today at 1-800-788-0829 for more information.
