Helpful Thanksgiving Travel Tips

For many of us, Thanksgiving is a time where we travel to spend time with our beloved family. But how do we travel without the stress of travel?

The Thanksgiving holiday is undoubtedly in the top 2 of the busiest travel days of the year with notorious transportation delays, infinite traffic, and travel interruptions and annoyances nearly everyone faces. With a bit of planning and foresight, you can  decrease the amount of stress you will face at the airport on Thanksgiving day and head home for the holidays with a smile on your face. Regardless of your plans, you’ll be thankful you read these helpful Thanksgiving travel tips.

Plan Ahead

Nearly of all the stress one gets while traveling is due to poor planning. Thanksgiving is still a few weeks away and you still have plenty of time to plan everything. Have a plan on how you’ll be getting to the airport, know where your passport is before the hour of your flight, and make a checklist to help you pack everything you need.

Choose Better Days

If you have not bought your ticket yet, don’t purchase on just any day. Fly out Monday, Tuesday, or even on Thanksgiving morning to get the best deals possible and to avoid all the potential congestion that the Wednesday before Thanksgiving brings. On the way back, crowds reach their peak on Sunday morning and afternoon.

Travel Light

Checked bags usually cost extra, depending on whether you chose a good or bad airline (avoid Delta). It’s good if you can fit everything you need in one bag and one handbag to move as fast as possible. The worst thing to be at an airport is to be that person who is holding up the line because you packed all the unnecessaries. Tips: don’t wear a belt, and have easy-to-remove shoes!
