Thanksgiving has come and gone but many people will still be celebrating the holidays with families. Christmas and New Years are just a few weeks away which now is the time to make plans. If you had a rough time getting to your destination for Thanksgiving, don’t repeat the same mistakes! Here are some holiday travel tips from us here at Silsbee Nissan to ease your traveling woes this season.
- Packing – Baggage fees can be a major drain on travel funds which is why it’s important to consider alternative options. Instead of checking multiple bags, pack unnecessary belongings, like extra clothes, and send them through the mail. Doing so will save money over the course of your travels. Make sure to pack everything you need for the flight into your carry-on bag!
- Driving – Those intending to drive to their destination would do well to make use of available technologies. GPS systems and route-planning apps can make any travel day a breeze. Many systems receive real-time updates, which means the route can be updated instantly to avoid reported accidents and hazards.
- Flying – Passengers planning to fly can make use of technology as well. Popular airlines often have apps that allow customers to accept flight and ticket information on their smartphone. Some airports even have apps that help passengers find their gate.
