With the holiday season almost upon us, it means that many Americans are hitting the road or hopping on flights to visit loved ones near and far. Traveling during this time of year can be remarkably stressful, especially if you’re in charge of coordinating a lot of people. To make holiday travel as seamless and stress-free as possible, here are some thanksgiving travel tips.
- Plan ahead: Although it’s already November, it doesn’t mean it’s too late to plan your trip home for Thanksgiving. Whatever planning you do beforehand means less stress while on the road or at the airport. If possible, avoid traveling on the Wednesday before and the Saturday/Sunday afternoon after Thanksgiving, since these are the busiest travel times.
- Consider alternative routes and airports: If possible, try to plan your travel to avoid the busiest airports and highways. If this is not possible, simply build more time into your travel plans and expect delays. If you know what you’re in for, you’ll have less stress while traveling.
- Have entertainment options: It’s important to have entertainment options while traveling to help the hours past more quickly and enjoyably. Load up your phone with music and podcasts or pack a good book if you’re flying. You will also want to make sure you have charging cables for your devices while on the go, so you can keep them charged up and connected.
