The holiday season is almost upon us. Whether you’re planning to make the trek to your grandparents’ house for Thanksgiving or simply head down to downtown Elizabethtown’s Christmas in the Park event, it’s important to be prepared. These holiday travel tips should make your travels a bit easier.
Be prepared. Whether you’re flying or driving, it’s essential to always be ready for the unexpected – especially during the colder months. With winter weather affecting road and flying conditions, be prepared for delays, traffic, and long lines at the airport.
Avoid peak travel days. If you can, try to keep your travel dates flexible, avoiding the busier travel days. This includes the days before and after Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year.
Make sure your car is ready. For the road trippers out there, before you head out on the road, make sure your vehicle has undergone its most recent routine maintenance. Check your tires, get your oil changed, and make sure your windshield wipers are working like new.
Pack plenty of snacks. Hunger can strike at any moment. Be ready with snacks on hand, whether you’re going through airport security or driving two hours. After all, you don’t want to get caught snack-less when your kids get the munchies!
