Traveling during the holidays can be stressful. While you may have done it year after year, there are still a few things you may forget. That can change this holiday season! Whether you’re heading to England or driving a few hours to another state, we here at Wiesner of Huntsville have Christmas travel tips that ensure a smooth trip!
- Plan Ahead. While you may be used to booking flights a week in advance, it never hurts to plan further ahead! The end result could be a cheaper ticket, package deals, or more convenient flight times. If you’re driving, plot out your route ahead of time. It wouldn’t hurt to come up with a backup in case there’s a road closure. Packing a few days in advance will give you time to remember anything you’ve forgotten as well.
- Avoid Crowds. No matter what airport you’ve traveled from, crowds are a sure thing around the holidays. While many think crowds are just a part of traveling, you can avoid them in one easy step: book a flight early in the morning or late at night. Most people aren’t traveling at this time, making it a breeze to get through security to your gate.
- Know the Rules. The TSA isn’t known for making exceptions to their rules. Print out the rules to check while you pack. Knowing how much liquid is allowed and how to pack it can make the difference between making and missing your flight!
From all of us here at Wiesner of Huntsville, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
