Traveling during the December holidays can be a struggle from making the arrangements to keeping the family happy and calm. Even our most seasoned FLL flyers can use tips and tricks to overcoming the most common holiday travel struggles.
Booking at the Last Minute
Taking time off around the holidays can be tough work. Your boss may only be able to give you a few weeks notice. It can also be difficult arranging schedules when children and their extracurricular activities are involved. Whatever the case may be, making last minute plans doesn’t have to spoil your trip. A lot of hotels and airlines will be offering last minute holiday deals that you’ll be able to take advantage of. One of the best tricks is to use travel apps. You can get alerts and special promotions throughout the year.
Don’t let your luggage literally drag you down. Even though you may be traveling to a cold location, you can still pack light. Know what airline you’re flying with and their baggage rules before you pack. Some airlines offer free checked bags, others charge, and some economy airlines will charge for bringing a carryon bag. You don’t want to be surprised when you check in at the airport. Here’s all of our best packing tips for the winter time.
Keep Everyone Happy
Even adults can have a meltdown when they travel so be prepared in advance for your kids to feel restless and antsy. Make sure you have plenty of snacks for them at the airport. This will help prevent anyone from getting hangry. Avoid paying the hefty prices at the airport by packing the snacks in advance. Have a few toys or games for them to play with and downloading a movie or two couldn’t hurt.
