Save Stress & Time With Our Holiday Travel Tips

So, it begins again. Holiday season is in full swing, which means it’s time to stock up on festive decor, plan an epic Friendsgiving, and travel home to see your loved ones. While the holiday season is a notoriously stressful time to travel, especially with COVID-19-related factors, we’ve gathered our three best holiday travel tips to reduce stress and save time. 

Avoid Busy Travel Days

Over the holidays, many people travel around the same time, which means there are certain days you can expect the airport to be packed. Keep in mind that the Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday after Thanksgiving are three of the busiest travel days of the year.

Our tip? If you can, avoid traveling on these busy days and instead try to head home the weekend before Thanksgiving to give yourself plenty of time to get home.

Pack Light

When traveling home for the holidays, your luggage can get weighed down with gifts for your friends and family. Instead of taking them in your suitcase, consider shipping them to your house or buying them on Amazon and sending them to your home address.
