The day before Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year and that can lead to a stressful holiday situation. The holidays are about food, fun, and family, but a stressful trip can ruin the holiday spirit and no one wants that. Here at Bill Crispin Chevrolet, we have some helpful Thanksgiving travel tips to make your holiday season less stressful.
- Plan Ahead – No matter where you’re going, it’s always important to plan ahead around the holidays. Create a schedule and stick to it while allowing extra time for unforeseen obstacles. Pack well beforehand and have your driving route or flight plans ready to go well ahead of time. As a general rule, arrive at the airport three or more hours early during the holidays.
- Technology – Harnessing the power of technology can make all the difference during the holiday season. Smartphones often have an available, often free, app that can help find the shortest, fastest, or most fuel efficient route to your destination. Airlines often have apps that include flight information. Some airports even have apps that provide a full map to help passengers find their gate.
- Find Deals – A few spam-like emails could save you a bundle on holiday flights and hotels. Airlines usually send special deals and discounts to email subscribers. You can always unsubscribe once the holidays are over.
